Justin Bieber becomes first artist on YouTube with 2 billion views

A big accomplishment.

Justin Bieber just landed himself a big-time milestone on YouTube — and if he manages to keep this up, he could have more views than there are people on this planet in a matter of years.

It was just announced that the 17-year old singing star is the first artist to pass 2 million views on the video-sharing site, and he has done so courtesy of such music videos as “Baby” (which is the most-watched one in the history of the site), “One Time,” and his most recent hit “Mistletoe.”

Lady Gaga was the first artist to ever cross the one billion threshold, and she is still #2 on the list. As for the rest of the top five, it consists of Rihana, Eminem, and Shakira (three artists who are extremely popular around the world).

How long do you think it is going to take for Bieber to pass the 3 billion mark?
