Justin Bieber Breaks Records for YouTube Views, Saying 'Like'

SPIN Staff

Big day for Justin Bieber! The 17-year-old pop star has reached 2 billion YouTube views, according to Gossip Cop (via E!), making him the first to reach that milestone — faster than even Lady Gaga, who was the quickest to hit 1 billion views in October 2010.

But perhaps more importantly, Bieber has also achieved a new personal record for saying the word "like." Thanks to the folks at Gawker, we were able to count the number of "like"s Biebs uttered during his appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno yesterday as part of the promotional campaign behind his holiday album Under the Mistletoe. We heard 53 in their supercut, but would never deny you the option of watching the entire eight-minute interview in its entirety. Hopefully Kanye West and Drake speak teen.
