Justin Bieber overtakes Rihanna as most-watched artist on YouTube

Justin Bieber has become the most viewed artist on YouTube once again.

Roughly three weeks ago, Rihanna pipped the Canadian to the illustrious accolade as she enjoyed racking up millions of hits.

However, the 'Believe' star has snatched back his crown.

Bieber's VEVO page is currently on almost 4 billion views whilst Rihanna is lagging behind with just over 3.4 billion.

Third meanwhile on the list of top YouTube views is Lady Gaga, who sits on 2.3 billion hits.

This news is a ray of light in a month of bad news for Bieber, whose recent journey to the UK was fraught with negative headlines.

The singer, among other incidents, was late on stage at London's O2 Arena before scuffling with a cameraman outside his hotel. Watch Justin Bieber perform live below:
