This just in: Justin Bieber is very popular.

Within a day of the 18-year old singer releasing his latest studio album, "Believe" ranks first on the iTunes Top Albums chart in the United States, Spain, New Zealand, Belgium, Finland... and you get the idea.

In all, the Biebs sits atop this chart in a whopping 34 countries! We now have proof: Justin is popular "All Around the World."

There's little doubt that Justin will take over number-one on next week's Billboard 200, as well, which tracks number of album copies sold in seven days. But that's where things could get awkward:

Usher is at the top of that chart at the moment. Sorry, mentor. You're gonna have to make room for your protege.

In case you've been trapped in a cave without Internet access for the past few weeks, Justin Bieber's new album came out TODAY. It's available RIGHT NOW. We won't be offended if you run off and purchase it.

Are you back? Okay. Good.

In promotion of "Believe," Justin called in to Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning and addressed a number of topics, first confirming that, yes, he did pen the track "Maria" after the Mariah Yeater baby scandal.

“I couldn’t really talk about it when it was happening," Bieber said of the tabloid circus. "Every interview I was like: ‘I can’t really talk about it.’ So, to be able to actually talk about it on the album is really awesome.”

Why include the song on the CD?

"People didn’t forget about it, it was still in the headline news. So, to be able to talk about it and really say my side of the story and really just express myself, I feel like that was the best way to do it.”

Among many other subjects discussed by the Biebs...

Which of his two fragrances does Selena Gomez like best? “I think she might like Girlfriend. I think my fans needs to go out and check it out and see what they think.”

This (not really) just in: Justin Bieber is the The Man.

The 18-year old once again displaced grace under pressure last night, as the power actually went out near the end of his set in Harlem's famed Apollo Theater.

But neither Bieber nor his fans panicked, instead resorting to a fun, A cappella-style version of "Boyfriend," with Justin dancing around and attendees providing the lyrics.

Watch now:

"A night none of us will ever forget!! That is how u end an #AllAroundTheWorld run!!! With no power for the last song...my fans sang it 4 me," Bieber Tweeted soon after the show.

This concert was taped as part of an NBC special set to air this week in honor of JB's album release. For a lot more of the singer live, visit our Justin Bieber video section now.

Well, Justin Bieber has done it again.

The 18-year old continued his push toward Boyfriend of the Year, a source tells People, by treating Selena Gomez to a special helicopter ride this weekend.

With both halves of this couple in Toronto for tonight's MuchMusic Video Awards, Bieber reportedly rented the vehicle yesterday and took Selena to Stratford, Ontario, home to North America's largest classical repertory theater.

The insider describes the trip by Bieber and Gomez as "a relaxing and romantic break from work" and said each was very "excited" by the unique means of transportation.

In a recent Elle interview, Selena described Justin as awfully "romantic," citing another gesture he made many months ago when he rented out a basketball arena for the pair to watch Titanic in.

Yes, folks, rumors of a split were very premature.

Justin Bieber appeared on The Today Show this morning and belted out a couple of tracks from "Believe," the new album that goes on sale June 19.

But it was the singer's action prior to taking the stage that really proved why he's so deserving of his wealth, popularity and fame.

Justin sat for an interview with Matt Laurer and was joined by Avalanna, a five-year old girl with brain cancer with whom Bieber has established a close relationship. They even got fake married earlier this year when Avalanna exchanged vows with a paper cutout of her hero.

Watch the adorable, moving exchange between the pair now...

... then wipe away those tears and enjoy the Biebs in action! He sings a pair of singles off his new CD below.
