Taylor Swift Lands in the Guinness Book of World Records

The Guinness Book of World Records: It’s not just for people who don’t trim their fingernails! It’s also for Taylor Swift, who managed to get her name attached to two world records in the 2014 book.

It has nothing to do with breakups — but it has everything to do with the success of breakup songs.

T-Swizzle is now the official winner of the “fastest-selling digital single” for ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,’ which made it to the top of the Billboard Charts after being on sale for only 50 minutes, and she’s also “the first solo female with two million-selling weeks on the US album chart.”

Other pop stars added into the book this year included One Direction, who won “highest debut by a UK group on the US singles chart” for their highly successful single ‘Live While We’re Young’ and Emeli Sande with ‘Our Version of Events,’ which garnered “most consecutive UK Top 10 weeks for a debut album.”

Of course, none of them have anything on Betty White, who was awarded “Longest TV Career For An Entertainer (Female).”

The Guinness Book of World Records will be available to flip through at a store near you on Sept. 12.
