Elton John's "Candle In The Wind" held the title of best selling single of all time, going eleven times platinum. Now, a song has gone 12 times platinum. Who?
"Baby" by Justin Bieber is now the best selling song of all time. With Billboard now taking into account Youtube views, "Baby" surpasses "Candle In The Wind"..although it hasn't sold more.
Bieber's "Baby" featuring rapper Ludacris has sold 3.9 million copies and has been viewed 859 MILLION times on YouTube.
Elton's "Candle In The Wind"/"Something About The Way You Look Tonight" has sold 33 million copies world-wide, 11 million in the U.S. There is no official YouTube channel for the "Candle In The Wind" performance, meaning it falls behind Bieber's YouTube hits, regardless of sales.
As much as I like the step forward Billboard has taken counting YouTube views, it changing the charts of songs that were there for years is disappointing.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Let's see if Bieber is still selling out 60,000 seat arena's 45 years into his career....
Justin Bieber and Usher are being sued for $10 million dollars for copyright infringement.
Devin Copeland aka Del Rico and songwriter Mareio Overton filed a lawsuit against Bieber and his mentor Usher for $10 million.
It is for the song "Someone To Love" which Copeland wrote a song with the same title back in 2008. Copeland says there are too many similarities between his version and Justin's so he sued.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Just not Justin's week....
Justin Bieber must be the world's greatest performer. Over the weekend, an overzealous fan jumped on stage as Bieber was performing in Dubai and knocked over Justin and he didn't even lost a beat....well, at least the recording didn't lose a beat.
In the video above, a fan gets on stage and tries to get to Bieber and while a bodyguard catches the guy, they run into Justin and knock over his piano. The music doesn't stop...and neither does Justin's voice.
Things that make you go.....hmm.-DocFB
Although Selena Gomez hooked back up with Justin Bieber last weekend in Oslo, Norway, she made sure to poke him this week. Not on Facebook, but in a photo.
Selena took a photo with a fan wearing a Justin Bieber shirt.
We wonder if the couple will still be together by the time the Billboard Music Awards take place on May 19th. Both Selena and Justin are scheduled to perform.-DocFB
Diagnosis: What happens in Norway...ends up on Justin's Instagram!-DocFB
Will.I.Am & Justin Bieber performed "#ThatPower" on Dancing With The Stars last night. Justin was only there on the video screen, kind of like in the video where he is just a hologram.
Will and his dancers were rocking that Amish hat that he wears in the video.
The performance was high energy by Will. Although Justin only sings the hook, it would have been better if he performed with Will. With Justin being on tour however, that couldn't happen.
For those that watch the show, Victor Ortiz was sent home with his boxing gloves.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Still hearing that Kanye track in it....
Justin Bieber is a hologram in the new video "#ThatPower" by Will.I.Am. There are quite a few Will.I.Am's in this video as well.
One thing with Will.I.Am, you can expect some pretty crazy futuristic cars in the video.
"Bigger. Better. Faster. Stronger." Wait. Didn't Kanye rap about that a few years ago. Will.I.Am is getting crazy flack lately for jacking beats from not quite as well known artists. Kind of like other bloggers and sites jack stories word for word from this site. Hmm.
Will's outfit kind of looks like Kanye's leather skirt from the "Watch The Throne" tour with Jay-Z, although Will is wearing an Amish hat to throw us off.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Regardless of the sampling of ideas, Will's video is a futuristic fantasy.
