It’s not for the sticking as many pegs on his face as possible!

That’s this guy’s record.


This is what we think of when we hear the words Guinness World Record but Bieber has broken records within music, of course.

It’s no surprise that Justin Bieber is one of the most successful artists in the world, especially since his huge success over the past year, with a change of style which attracted a completely different fan-base from the young girls who first heard him sing on Youtube.

But we were not expecting him to hold so many world records, many of which are off the back of his album Purpose.

Winning 8 records in one year must be a record in itself.

Guinness World Records official Instragram shared a picture of Bieber with all his awards.

The caption reads:

“Beliebers rejoice – Justin Bieber sings his way into the new#GWR2017 book with a set of 8 record titles!”

His new world records are:
