Eminem: More Popular Than MJ on Facebook

Move over Michael Jackson, Eminem is now the most popular artist on Facebook; alive or dead.

AOL News reports that the Detroit lyricist officially claimed the title over the weekend when he surpassed the King of Pop with the most likes on the social networking site. As of press time Em has 30,339,050 likes, while MJ has 29,889,0268.

Last month, the Detroit bred superstar made headlines after he exceeded Lady Gaga’s status on Facebook. She is currently in second place with 30,150,676 likes. This battle is sure to be ongoing, as both Gaga and Jackson are known to have very supportive fanbases.

In related news, Em’s third solo album for Interscope, The Eminem Show, was recently certified diamond by the the Recording Institute Association of America (RIAA). This isn’t the first time he shipped over  10,000,000 copies of one of his discs. 2001’s The Marshall Mathers LP also earned the Em a diamond plaque.—Elan Mancini
