100Million

Justin bieber has not sold 100 million records, why does no one fact check.. there is no other citations rather than billboard.Billboard and riaa reported michael jackson sold 1 billion ww but its not reliable .why double standard to different artist?? Akhiljaxxn (talk) 10:48, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Akhiljaxxn, what you are talking about? The source that you removed states, "His U.S. album and singles sales total $44.7 million with his estimated 100 million records sold making him one of the world’s best-selling music artists." So that piece wasn't added without a source. It should have been qualified with "U.S.," though, like the source. As for whether or not it's reliable, see WP:Reliable sources. I'm not sure how reliable Media in Visalia, California/Visalia Times-Delta is. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 01:06, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
To Akhiljaxxn, what you are talking about? ?. Please look at List of best-selling music artists, his total certification sales is very high (at 87 million). The Scotsman/http://www.scotsman.com/news/justin-bieber-in-meltdown-you-better-belieber-it-1-3281645 said he has sold 100m-records and Radio Canada International/http://www.rcinet.ca/en/2016/05/16/justin-bieber-live-in-canadian-homecoming/, cementing his status as one of the world’s best-selling music artists. OF COURSE, he has sold 100m-records. Politsi (talk) 02:54, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Time to update photo?

The photo of Bieber in the Infobox is 4 years old. He is 22 now, and there are multiple pictures showing him older in the Commons, and elsewhere. Is it time to update the pic? I've made errors in choosing pics before, so I will leave it up to the more experienced. But now may be the time. I believe the pictures of famous people should be updated periodically, when more recent pictures become available.Juneau Mike (talk) 21:48, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, that'd be great: why don't you go to wherever he lives, take a picture of him, and upload it? It's not easy to get a picture of a famous person with no licence on it, we just have to make do.Esmost πк 00:25, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
Your response came across as a bit snarky, but I understand your point. I certainly have no photos of Bieber of my own to offer to the public domain. There is a more recent photo further down in the article (from 2015) Maybe I will be bold and make that the Infobox pic, but I'm going to think about it first.Juneau Mike (talk) 23:17, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

Drafting an article

If anyone wants to help contribute to this draft I have created, I would appreciate it. I am trying to get it to featured list status so, be aware of anything you edit and make sure it is up to standard going forward. I mostly need help with music video descriptions. Thank you.
