Surprising Accomplishments: 4 Celebrities Who Made the Cut in Guinness
Who knew they had it in them?
In April 2019, Ariana Grande became the most popular woman on Instagram, overtaking Selena Gomez. But that's not the only record the singer set.
In the same year, Grande broke The Beatles' record and she was the first person to do so in the last 55 years. In fact, three of her songs made it into the top 100 most popular songs of the week, according to Billboard magazine. By the way, during her career Ariana already holds a total of about 20 records.
Beyoncé got her first entry in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2010 with her husband, rapper Jay-Z.
At the time, the stars were awarded the title of the highest-paid married couple — they earned about $122 million. Beyoncé also holds the world record for the most Grammy Awards. She has 79 nominations, 28 of which she has won.
Taylor Swift has broken two world records.
The first was with her album Speak Now, which became the best-selling album in the world and stayed at the top of the Billboard Artist 100 chart for several weeks (31). The album sold about 280,000 copies at the time. Swift also made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the singer with the most songs and music awards.
In 2016, Jennifer Lawrence found herself in the Guinness Book of World Records as the actress who played the highest-grossing role. She won her title after the success of The Hunger Games and X-Men film series.
By the way, the role of Katniss Everdeen earned the creators of the film $1.52 billion (we are talking about the first two parts of The Hunger Games).
