Who in the music business created the most buzz on Twitter this past year? Well, you can give that crown to Justin Bieber.

While Beyonce's unannounced album was the most tweeted about album of 2014, the Biebs snagged the most talked about title. We're pretty sure he can thank that infamous arrest and all those breakups with Selena Gomez for that.

The most tweets generated were about him, but that doesn't mean there weren't other celebs trailing right behind him. The guys from One Direction almost beat out the Biebs. Well, three of them. Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Liam Payne were the 1D members most tweeted about in 2014.

Right behind them came Katy Perry. Surprising, right? Katy, Bieber and Taylor Swift are the three most followed musicians on Twitter, too.
