Want to Vomit? Justin Bieber's 'Baby' Goes Diamond as No. 1 Most Sold Single Ever

By Christopher Lavinio on August 1, 2013
I'm not going to lie, today is a pretty crappy day. So just as you thought this rainy day in New York City couldn't get any worse, Daily Beat begins posting about Justin Bieber. The 19 year-old pop star received an award last night (July 31) at his concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ for his signature 2010 single, "Baby." The Diamond Award for the single represents the Recording Industry Association of America's official recognition of "Baby" as the highest certified digital single in US music history, and sadly earned its Diamond status after going 12x Platinum.  

Am I Really Reviewing Selena Gomez's New Album?

So I start this post with one simple question: am I really reviewing Selena Gomez's new album Stars Dance? The twenty-one year old Disney Channel star released her first solo album (via Hollywood Records) this past weekend that is currently streaming on iTunes and features what else but typical dance beats coupled with a little bit of heartbreak! It's funny how we have immediate questions when pop stars release albums such as Taylor Swift. The first thing we always wonder is, "what guy is each song about?" Well, with Selena's new album, there isn't any doubt. Most of our sources and fellow media reports have laid it out fairly simple for us: BIEBER. So we'll take you track by track (eleven in all) behind the debut solo album from the former Wizards of Waverly Place star.
