Justin Bieber, Shirtless

Justin Bieber celebrates his 19th birthday today. We’ll wait for the squealing to calm down before we continue..

Justin Bieber had a huge year! From the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show to new digs and more hit singles, this star has a lot of celebrating to do!

He may not be spending his big day with Selena Gomez, but his success will sure keep him company.

While we all pondered whether Selena Gomez would be moping around thinking about her ex Justin Bieber, who kick-started his 19th birthday celebration a night early in London, the actress was seen without a care in the world as she enjoyed a sunny afternoon in Los Angeles.

Let’s take a look at his stand-out moments as he moves forward to the last of his teen years!

Justin Bieber’s ’Believe’ Album

The Biebs released his third studio album, Believe, on June 19, 2012. The album was praised for being a departure from his usual teen pop sounds due to the incorporation of more dance-pop and R&B genres. Believe debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Congrats Justin! He also got a little more love from his native people this time around when the album’s debut single, Boyfriend,” reached the top spot on the Canadian Hot 100. “Bieber Fever” can’t be stopped!

Justin Bieber’s New Mansion

It’s only a matter of time before a huge star like Justin invests in a hot new piece of real-estate. In May 2012 the “Baby” singer purchased a 10,000 square foot Mansion in Calabasas, California. The pad cost him a whopping $6.5 million! His new digs–equipped with  a movie theater with stadium seating, a wet bar and a wine cellar, a large pool and sizable guest house.

Justin’s Sold-Out ‘Believe’ Tour

Justin is not slowing down anytime soon! He’s in the midst of his Believe Tour, currently preparing to jet off to Europe and Africa.

Lebanese Beliebers 

Bieber fans are called Beliebers. “Belieber” was declared one of the best new words of 2010. The early Bieber fanbase developed on YouTube, and predated the release of Bieber’s first album.

Fans viewed his videos more than 2 billion times on YouTube, with Bieber becoming the first person to reach that number on the site.

Three Years ago, Lebanese Beliebers started making videos, fan pics and trends on Twitter, for instance the hashtag “#LebaneseBeliebersExist” trended Worldwide two days ago !

They’re doing their best trying to bring Justin to Lebanon. So all the luck Lebanese Beliebers!

Rihanna tops both Billboard 200 and Hot 100 charts with ‘Unapologetic’ and ‘Diamonds’

Rihanna became just the second artist in 2012 to top both the Billboard’s 200 albums and Hot 100 singles charts at the same time, thanks to a great debut for Unapologetic. Her latest album is her first No. 1 album and the single, “Diamonds,” retained the top spot on the Hot 100 chart.

Billboard reported that Unapologetic sold 238,000 copies during its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan numbers. Rihanna had never reached higher than No. 3 on the album chart before Unapologetic. Both 2010’s Loud and 2011’s Talk That Talk reached No. 3.

Rihanna is also the first artist since Adele to hold the top spot on both major Billboard charts in the same week. Back in February, while 21 was still topping the Billboard 200 chart, “Set Fire To The Rain” was No. 1 on the Hot 100. Adele, whose album already reached 10 million copies, was the only artist to accomplish this feat all of last year, notes Billboard.

“Diamonds” topped the Hot 100, but came in at No. 2 on the Digital Songs chart with 176,000 downloads sold.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Taylor Swift’s Red was at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, with 185,000 copies sold. One Direction’s Take Me Home slid to No. 3 with 176,000 copies, while American Idol winner Phillip Phillips’ The World From the Side of the Moon sold 169,000 copies.

Justin Bieber: Number-One Around the World!

This just in: Justin Bieber is very popular.

Within a day of the 18-year old singer releasing his latest studio album, “Believe” ranks first on the iTunes Top Albums chart in the United States, Spain, New Zealand, Belgium, Finland… and you get the idea.

In all, the Biebs sits atop this chart in a whopping 34 countries! We now have proof: Justin is popular “All Around the World.”

There’s little doubt that Justin will take over number-one on next week’s Billboard 200, as well, which tracks number of album copies sold in seven days. But that’s where things could get awkward:

Usher is at the top of that chart at the moment. Sorry, mentor. You’re gonna have to make room for your protege.
