Justin Bieber's video for "Baby" is no longer the most viewed video on YouTube. The new record-holder is "Gangnam Style" by South Korean rapper PSY, which topped 820 million views this weekend. Then, Sunday, Bieber played a halftime concert at Canadian football's championship game — and was booed by the crowd. Keeping his cool, Bieber called out, "Thank you so much, Canada."
