Taylor Swift

Pop stars Taylor Swift and One Direction have been placed in the Guinness Book of World Records thanks to their performance on U.S. music charts.

Swift became the first female music artist to have two weeks with over a million sales of an album, thanks to the performance of Speak Now and Red.

She also has the fastest selling digital single. "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" took the #1 spot on iTunes only 50 minutes after it was released.

One Direction now has the record for best U.S. debut by a U.K. musician after "Live While We're Young" arrived at number three on the charts.

Other record entries include Calvin Harris, who now has the most top 10 hits (eight) from a single album in the U.K. - topping none other than Michael Jackson. Betty White was recognized as having the longest career, and PSY's "Gangham Style" has the most online video views in 24 hours.
