Here are the reasons why these artists getting this acclamation:

Eminem is being recognized for his hit single “Rap God” in which he spit verses at supersonic speed, delivering 1,560 words in 6 minutes, 4 seconds.

Jennifer Lawrence will have her name included in the 2015 Guinness Book of World Records, making her the highest-grossing action heroine the world has ever known. She was able to do this because of her role of Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games” franchise.

Metallica’s accomplishment is because it became the first and only band to ever perform a concert on all seven of Earth’s continents, and they did so in a single year. They did this following their  “Freeze ‘Em All” show in Antarctica back in December.

One Direction wrote their name in the record book for being the  “First act to debut at No. 1 with first three albums” . Their albums Midnight Memories, Up All Night and Take Me Home all topped the Billboard charts in first week.

Miley Cyrus earns this recognition for being the most “Most searched-for Pop Star on the Internet.”

Shakira overtook Rihanna as the “Most ‘liked’ Person on Facebook” back in April. Then she broke the record again when she earned the 100 millionth fan “like” on the social network becoming the “First person to reach 100 million likes on Facebook.”

Katy Perry will be highlighted in the record book as the musician with the most Twitter followers (52,463,838).
