The Guinness Book of Records has already existed for more than 60 years. Every year it approves around 6,000 records out of 50,000 applications. It’s no wonder that some of those records are set by people known all over the world for their professional achievements. Here we present some record-breakers with celebrity status.
Bright Side collected some Guinness World Records set by singers, TV hosts, actors, and politicians. These records are not connected to their income or their place in the music charts. Read this list until the end to find out who set the record themselves and who got there with the help of others.
Shakira possesses an impressive number of Guinness World Record certificates — she broke the record three times! Not only does she hold the title for Best-Selling Spanish Album and Best-Selling Spanish Single, she was the first person to reach 100 million likes on Facebook.
2. Hilary Clinton
Given the popularity of the US election, it’s not surprising that Hillary Clinton became the most searched woman on the Internet in 2016. She could have become the most searched person in the US but, similarly to the elections, she was won over by Donald Trump. Interestingly enough, this title previously belonged to Lady Gaga.
3. Ozzy Osbourne
In 2010, the Guinness World Record for the longest and loudest scream by a crowd was broken by a crowd of 52,000 people at Dodger Stadium. This scream was led by Black Sabbath frontman, Ozzy Osbourne. The heavy metal singer even received a Guinness certificate as the leader of a record breaking scream.
4. Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock
Professional wrestler and actor, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, holds a number of world records, but the most surprising of them has to do with selfies. Johnson holds the title of the man who took 105 selfies in three minutes. Note that there was a condition that on each selfie the face and the neck of the person had to be in focus, which makes this achievement even more impressive.
