Justin Bieber has landed eight new Guinness World Records

Justin set the record for having the most simultaneous tracks on the Billboard Hot 100, with 17 songs within the chart at the same time last December. He is also the first-ever artist to hold the top three slots in the UK singles chart at the same time with Love Yourself, Sorry and What Do You Mean?.

And that's just half the records he secured! The Canadian star now holds the world record for having the most Twitter followers and YouTube subscribers of any male; his YouTube channel is the most viewed YouTube channel of any musician ever; and finally, he's had the most simultaneous new entries in the top 100 chart with 13 songs at the same time.

The 22-year-old won five records for his music, and took three social titles

Justin isn't the only celebrity making an appearance in the record book. National treasure Dame Judi Dench has been listed for the 'Most Olivier Awards won by an individual', following her latest and eighth win for Shakespeare's A Winter's Tale.

The late, great David Bowie also appears for the first time in 10 years, after 19 of his albums hit the UK Top 100 earlier this year, 10 of which were in the UK Top 40, earning him a posthumous record for Most simultaneous entries on the UK album chart.

Also included this year in the world of music is Ringo Starr for the record 'Most expensive vinyl record sold at auction'. A mono copy of the Beatles' White Album sold by Ringo fetched $790,000 (£522,438) at Julien's Auction house in Los Angeles, California, USA on 5th December 2015. The first pressing of the 1968 chart-topped, number 0000001, was stored by Ringo in a vault for 35 years and was auctioned in near mint condition.
