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....
Ludacris, a 3 time Grammy winner, will join Grammy winner Lupe Fiasco, and Grammy winning dup Sugarland as they have been added to the list of performers for the Grammy Nomination special which airs live on CBS November 30th.
They join Lady Gaga and Jason Aldean, who were announced last week.
LL Cool J will be hosting the special again this year.
There will be even more performers announced and special guest presenters as well.
This is the 4th year the nominations have been announced like this.
The Grammys will air live on Feb. 12th, 2012.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Should the announcement special have its own special?

Diagnosis: Partying Like It's.....2011?
Um, is it 1999 again? It must be because Enrique Iglesis is hot again and Ludacris is joning him for "Tonight (I'm Loving You)" and from the windows to the wall, they are bringing it.
We never imagined seeing Luda chilling listening to the "Good Ship Lolipop" and he doesn't...for too long.
Check out Enrique and Ludacris warm you up this winter and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB

This is really really good news. T.I. & Ludacris are donating 10 grand apiece to help Atlanta flood victims according to TMZ.
Even behind bars, T.I. is trying to help his community and this comes on the heels of Luda giving away cars last month. They are donating the money via The Ludacris Foundation.
People usually report on the crap rappers do like say Kanye n his outburst, but I prefer stories like this. Good job T.I. n Luda!-Dr.FB
