Rapper Eminem Is The First Person To 60 Million Facebook Likes

Not long ago, Eminem surpassed Lady Gaga in terms of Facebook following. Now the rapper can celebrate another milestone: first human to 60 million Facebook fans.

Marshall Mathers, better known as Detroit-based rapper Eminem, still has an uphill battle if he wants to become the most popular page on Facebook. According to statistics from our sister site, PageData, Eminem has just a little more than 60 million likes, but his Facebook page ranks fifth overall — behind Facebook for Every Phone, Facebook, Texas HoldEm Poker, and YouTube.

Singer Rihanna, with whom Eminem performed “Love The Way You Lie,” is right behind the artist formerly known as Slim Shady, with almost 59.4 million likes of her own.

Shakira, another singer, is eighth with about 53.3 million fans. Lady Gaga is ninth with roughly 53 million likes. Even though Michael Jackson is no longer alive, he ranks 10th on Facebook, with 51.1 million fans.

Even though Eminem is the most popular musician all over the Facebook world, he has some competition in Kodiak, Alaska.
