Is Justin Bieber the World's Biggest Pop Star?

by at . Comments

Over the past week, Justin Bieber has chatted with Jay Leno and David Letterman, taped a segment for American Idol, sung at the White House and earned the number-one spot with with his album "My World 2.0."

Not a bad few days for this 16-year old phenom.

"What I have is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," Bieber says in the upcoming issue of People, which you can purchase off newsstands Friday. "And I'm having a blast."

As you can see below, the magazine goes on to anoint Justin as World's Biggest Pop Star. But is this really accurate?

Based on album sales alone, it's not very far-fetched. Only Lady Gaga, in his genre, can really compete with Bieber on the charts. Susan Boyle may have broken debut CD records last year, but no one would refer to her music as "pop."

Rihanna? She has far more number-one singles than Justin, but also a lot more experience. In five years, might he still be on top? Millions of teenage girls around the globe sure hope so.
