Beyonce has made music history. The singer's new self-titled album debuted at the top of the Billboard charts, having sold 617,000 copies since its secret drop on iTunes last week - that makes Beyonce the the first woman to reach number 1 with her first five studio albums. Is Justin Bieber retiring? While being interviewed on a Los Angeles radio station, the singer said he would retire after the release of his next album. It's not clear whether Bieber was joking or not when he made the statement. His new album "Journals" was just released and he's currently promoting a new concert movie called "Believe." So retiring or not, he will certainly be busy for a while. Leonardo DiCaprio hit the red carpet in New York for the premiere of his latest film, "The Wolf of Wall Street." The film has already earned the actor a Golden Globe nomination - and he's expected to get an Oscar nod as well when those nominations are announced in January. "The Wolf of Wall Street" opens on December 25. Finally, Happy Birthday to Brad Pitt. The actor turned 50-years old on December 18. Pitt has been a Hollywood mainstay since the early 1990s. To date, he's been nominated for three Academy Awards and has won a Golden Globe. He's currently filming 'Fury' about a crew of Americans on a mission in Nazi Germany at the end of World War II.
