Beyonce and Jay-Z are making and breaking records, and we’re not talking about album sales. Admittedly the most powerful couple in hip hop and R&B made headlines last week when they were inducted into the Guinness Book Of World Records.
The Carters have been added to the 2010 edition of the respected record book for being the “highest earning power couple” after collectively earning $122 million since their marriage in 2004 through June 2009. It comes to no surprise that the dynamic duo made the cut, and they’ll be joined by Lady Gaga, another megastar who’s been named the “Most Searched-For Female.”
Since the creation of the first book in 1955, people still remain smitten by records making the GBWR, the biggest-selling copyrighted book of all time, by 2004 selling more than 92 million copies. The records included in the Guinness book are often debated for value and ethics, because a large part on the content included are pretty zany. Records for “woman with longest cheek sags” and “man who can wear the most T-shirts” exist, which got us thinking if people are breaking records for things that silly why not make our own with our favorite celebs.
