Justin Bieber, who yesterday “accidentally” returned to Instagram two weeks after deactivating his account, now holds eight Guinness World Records. Because apparently the Guinness Book Of World Records gives out record certifications for other records that already exist? I dunno, I haven’t brushed up on their rigorous methodology since about sixth grade.

Anyway, he’ll be in the 2017 edition of the Guinness World Records with a bunch of titles relating to streaming and social media. Here are all eight:

-Most streamed track on Spotify in one week (“What Do You Mean?”, 30,723,708 streams) -Most streamed album on Spotify in one week (Purpose, 205 million) -Most simultaneous tracks on the Billboard Hot 100 (17 in December 2015) -Most simultaneous new entries on the Hot 100 by a solo artist (13) -First act to land the three top spots on UK singles chart simultaneously (“Love Yourself” at No. 1, “Sorry” at No. 2 and “What Do You Mean?” at No. 3) -Most Twitter followers of any male (82,235,563) -Most YouTube subscribers of any male (20,711,202) -Most viewed YouTube music channel (10,478,651,389)

Members of the Guinness staff presented Bieber with all his certificates before his recent Madison Square Garden show. Too bad he can’t gram it.
