Justin Bieber’s new music video has set a record-breaking number of views on YouTube. “Boyfriend”, which was premiered on Thursday, May 3 night, received more than 8 million views within just 24 hours.
The number posted by Bieber’s video shattered previous record breaker, Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been”, which was released a week prior. As of Sunday morning, “Boyfriend” has garnered more than 13 million hits, thanks partly to the campaign that the heartthrob has launched on Twitter to make “Boyfriend” the most popular video ever posted on YouTube.

The pair are taking time out after Selena, 19, ordered the clean-cut pop idol to ditch his new pals, The Sun can reveal.
It came after Justin, 17, arrived at one of Selena’s gigs in Florida last week with rap ace Sean Kingston, 21 – a former child burglar.
A pal of Disney star Selena revealed: “Selena told him to stop hanging with these bad people.
“She didn’t want Sean Kingston to crash her gig but Justin brought him to concert in Boca Raton anyway. They had a huge fight and said it was good they were having time apart while she was on tour.”
But the next day Justin and Sean caused hysteria by cruising through Miami in an open-top Rolls-Royce.
A pal of Selena said she saw Justin in tears during rows with her. She said: “It’s hard seeing a little 17-year-old crying and saying he loves her.”
I don’t believe this story but if it’s true then omg Selena is absolutely horrible!
Rihanna was at Island Def Jam’s headquarters in New York City yesterday for a photoshoot. Spotting a picture of JB on the wall she could not hold herself back from the overwhelming urge to kiss it.
No worries RiRi, I do it all the time. :p
Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber was reportedly stopped from talking to Rihanna at the Billboard Music Awards by her security guards.
The 17-year-old was allegedly left feeling upset when he was prevented from meeting with Rhi Rhi, 23, after approaching the California King Bed singer five times at the awards ceremony, which was held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday.
An insider told British newspaper the Daily Mirror: ‘Justin thinks Rihanna is the most beautiful woman and supremely talented.
‘He is in awe of her. Justin is just a red-blooded teenager, he can’t help acting like a love-sick puppy dog when he’s around her.’
The source added: ‘The pair were chatting as Justin’s girlfriend Selena [Gomez] looked on, scowling. Then Rihanna got dragged away by a couple of her friends.
‘The pair resumed their chat later but when Justin went to talk to her at the show’s climax her security blocked his path, telling him to ‘leave it.’
‘Justin looked mortified – he thought they were buddies.’
