Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are among the pop stars who have been honoured with Guinness World Records.

Taylor was officially handed the fastest-selling single for 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together', which reached number one on iTunes in just 50 minutes when it was released last year.

She also became the first female solo artist to enjoy two million-selling weeks on the US Billboard album chart with 'Red'.

Meanwhile, Calvin Harris beat a record held by Michael Jackson as he was awarded the world record for the most top 10 hits from one album.

One Direction secured the award for the highest debut by a us group on the Billboard Hot 100 with 'Live While We're Young', which was the lead single from their second album 'Take Me Home'.
