Taylor Swift performs onstage during the 2013 CMT Music awards on June 5, 2013 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Swift notches "First Solo Female with Two Million-Selling Weeks on the U.S. Albums Chart," while Bieber and others score in social media categories.

The 2014 "Guinness World Records" book looks a lot like the Billboard 200.

The latest edition of the book will include a number of pop star records, according to People, including one in tribute to Taylor Swift's massive "Red" success. She's notched the category, "First Solo Female with Two Million-Selling Weeks on the U.S. Albums Chart," which also recognizes her million-selling debut week with "Speak Now."

And Justin Bieber has a pair of Guinness honors: "Youngest Solo Artist to Have Five U.S. No. 1 Albums" and "Youngest Musician with a Music Channel Viewed Three Billion Times."

Social media drove several categories, including an achievement for One Direction -- "Most Twitter Followers for a Pop Group" -- and Rihanna, formally recognized as the "Most 'Liked' Person on Facebook."
