Justin Bieber Breaks YouTube Record With 3 Billion Views

Thanks in large part to his army of Beliebers, Justin Bieber has made history by becoming the first person to reach 3 billion YouTube views.

The 18-year-old Canadian wonder child got a bump from his recent release of the "Beauty And A Beat" video, featuring Nicki Minaj. Debuted just one week ago, the video already has over 44 million views.

Bieber is breaking his own 2011 record of becoming the first person to break 2 billion views on YouTube.

The Biebs is currently in the middle of his international "Believe" tour, which has already sold over 80,000 tickets and made a revenue of $6.2 million.
