The world’s most popular teen superstar celebrates a major milestone today, as Canadian songbird Justin Bieber turns 18. For a pop idol who got his start after being discovered on YouTube in 2007, it's only fitting that his fans are trying to set a Guinness World Record for the most social media messages ever, which are being aggregated on happybirthdayjustinbieber.com.
The goal is to set that record on his actual birthday, by tweeting or posting to Facebook the official message: “Please RT: Setting a world record for @justinbieber! #leggo http://bit.ly/jb18th"
With just under seven hours left at this writing, the effort has already passed the current Guinness World Record of 209,771. Happy Birthday, kidrauhl!
