Justin Bieber has become the first person to top 2 billion YouTube views.

The singer passed the milestone over the weekend after his latest music video for festive track 'Mistletoe' reached 27 million views in a week.

To date, the star has amassed 2,004,247,332 views across the video-sharing site.

Bieber continues to hold the record for the most viewed music video on YouTube with his clip for 'Baby' currently sitting at 650 million hits.

Lady GaGa beat the 17-year-old to the 1 billion mark back in October 2010, but he quickly overtook and now has a lead of 320 million.

However, GaGa still remains the most popular person on Twitter with 15 million followers compared to Bieber's 13.9 million.

Meanwhile, Rihanna comes in as the third-highest YouTube star with 1.7 billion views and is currently the fastest-growing, while Eminem trails with 1.5bn.
