Eminem Most ‘Liked’ Artist on Facebook
Eminem is liked … a lot. The Detroit rapper has become the first person, living or dead, to rack up 30 million ‘likes’ on Facebook. The milestone, achieved this past Saturday, took place after Em pulled ahead of Michael Jackson as the most liked person on the social networking site, besting the King of Pop’s 29.8 million likes with a solid 30.32 million of his own.
The feat comes after Slim Shady passed Lady Gaga as the most liked living artist on Facebook in February, when he scored 28.89 million likes to Gaga’s 28.88 million likes. Gaga reigns supreme over on Twitter, though, with 8.78 million followers on the social networking site edging out Em’s 3.44 million followers. At press time, she also had reached the 30 million mark on Facebook, but still trailed Em.
The ‘Love the Way You Lie’ spitter also made headlines in the digital world in February when he became the third artist to surpass the one billion views mark on YouTube. Thanks to the views from videos like his smash collaboration with Rihanna, Em joined Gaga and Justin Bieber in the prestigious club, while Ri became the fourth artist to reach a billi earlier this month.
