Justin Bieber is on a roll, even if Taylor Swift is hating every minute of it!!
The ultra-successful singer just walked away with a Milestone Award at 19 and NOW he has beat the iconic, the legendary Elton John!
JB's Baby has gone platinum 12 times to become the HIGHEST-certified single in HISTORY according to Billboard, demolishing The Rocket Man's 1997 11 times platinum, Candle in the Wind/Something About the Way You Look Tonight.
While it took Elton MANY, many years in the music biz to break the record, Bieby got a hand from the new on-demand streaming data that has been incorporated to measure gold and platinum success.
Regardless, way to go Bieby!!!!
We bet this'll earn you yet ANOTHER kiss from Selena Gomez!
Maybe this time in a place less PG? *WINK WINK* LOLz!!!
