24 June 2010

A few months ago, Lady Gaga's video for "Bad Romance" surpassed "Charlie Bit my Finger...Again!" as the most viewed YouTube video of all-time. As of May 12, 2010 Lady Gaga had amassed 202,638,903 views in approximately six months. It didn't look like anything could stop it.

It still doesn't appear to be stopped, but can it be topped?

As of June 24th, Justin Bieber's "Baby" video surpassed 211,000,000 views. This makes it the second most viewed YouTube video of all-time. "Bad Romance" remains in the lead with just over 233,000,000 views.

It sounds like a major discrepancy, but take note that "Baby" from Justin Bieber has only been available on YouTube for 4 months in comparison to "Bad Romance" being out 7 months. On May 12th, "Baby had only accumulated 132,580,445 views. Within 6 weeks, Justin Bieber has closed the gap from approximately 70 million to 20 million.

Comments on Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" video already show fans worrying about Bieber surpassing her in the upcoming months. Comments on Justin Bieber's video could not be retrieved.

There are some interesting notes about this fight. Regular YouTube users are fond of users that invade other videos as trolls. Trolls barge into videos they dislike in order to ridicule the artists and fans who made or enjoy the work.

Usually, trolls aren't welcomed. In this case, any troll that can't resist his or her urges to trespass unto their competition's video will be giving them views. A fan of "Bad Romance" that trolls over to "Baby" is helping Bieber out by posting comments on his video, giving it more views.

Can "Bad Romance" maintain its role as YouTube's most viewed video of all-time? Will "Baby" continue its surge toward the top, effectively ending human sanity?

ps. Did you know Lady Gaga's manager is also managing Greyson Chance?



Justin Bieber's mom Pattie Lynn Mallette

He's managed to sky rocket to fame over the past year, and it sounds like Justin Bieber’s mom wants to follow in his footsteps.

According to a recent report, Playboy magazine has offered Pattie Lynn Mallette $50,000 to pose for a spread in an upcoming issue.

The big question remains: will she accept? It remains unknown if Pattie –who’s divorced from Justin’s dad- will accept the offer.

A rep at Playboy told Hollyscoop, "We’re not commenting on this at this time."


I'm sure that's never gonna happen. First Pattie is a Christian and doing it would only embarrass her super famous son. Imagine that. I don't care what you say but your mom is the last person on earth you would want to pose for Playboy. Besides $50,000 is nothing to Justin. He'd probably pay her twice as much just to not do it.


Justin Bieber was terrified before he took to the stage to kick off his world tour because he didn’t want to “disappoint” all his fans.

The 16-year-old Canadian pop star started his My World concert run in Hartford, Connecticut, last night. It is the first time the teen heartthrob has toured and he was extremely nervous because his stage show has been talked up so much.

Justin was so anxious, he even abstained from posting his every move on his Twitter page, visiting the site only minutes before he took to the stage to apologise to his fans.

“Sorry been away all day...first tour ever. Little nervous. Don't want to let u guys down (sic),” he wrote on the social networking site.

Fortunately for Justin, his show went off without a hitch, and he even received a standing ovation from the screaming crowd. He took to the internet after the concert to thank his fans for their support, declaring it to be one of the best nights of his life.

“2nite was just...well...i was scared. didnt want to let anyone down but the energy and the fans were incredible. Cant wait to do this again!

“When u have the support of the greatest fans in the world. U just end up smiling. Thanks. on the bus heading to Trenton to the next show...just trying to take it all in from 2nite. Just one of the greatest nights of my life (sic),” Justin wrote.
