Jennifer Lawrence, Beyoncé break world records
After this week, JLaw could probably use some good news. And she's got it — she'll be featured in the 2015 Guinness Book of World Records.
The Hunger Games actress made the world record for the highest-grossing action movie heroine of the year for her work so far on the franchise. The Hunger Games movies have grossed more than $1.52 billion internationally. E! News reports that 2013's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire racked up $854 million across the globe on its own, earning it the record for the highest-grossing post-apocalyptic movie this year.
Beyoncé is another record breaker — her self-titled surprise release last December is now the fastest-selling iTunes album, with 838,773 copies sold in its first three days.
In anticipation of the release of its 2015 book, Guinness released a long list of its celebrity and entertainment record breakers on Thursday.

Miley Cyrus shows that twerking can pay off by being named most searched-for pop star online, and Shakira is taking home two honors: most liked celebrity and the first star to reach 100 million likes on her Facebook page.
Fast & Furious actor, Vin Diesel, nabbed the top spot for most likes on a Facebook post — his photo with late pal and co-star, Paul Walker, amassed 6.8 million clicks of the "Like" button.
One Direction took the record for being the first musical act to debut its first three albums at No. 1 and Katy Perry now holds the record for most Twitter followers — 56 million.
