Can you imagine that a man can also lead on social networking site? Who would you guess? Justin Bieber? Michael Jackson or Lady Gaga? Close, but no cigar.
According to the App Data page, Eminem has become very close to 60 million Facebook fans by beating Lady Gaga and Rihanna. Eminem has long been the most popular person on the social networking site, after taking the honor away form Michael Jackson in 2009.
Eminem’s new record comes just a few months after announcing his latest solo studio album. “I’m kinda getting into my next record a little bit,” the rapper told Hot 97′s Peter Rosenberg in May.
The rapper-turned-actor even postponed filming “Southpaw” — originally billed as “8 Mile” with boxers instead of rappers — to focus on his new record. According to social media tracker site Star Count, 195,000 of the likes came in the last week.
Rihanna is the second most popular person after Eminem, with 59,318,829 likes. Meanwhile, soccer star David Beckham has thanked his fans on last Tuesday after he caught 20 million Likes on his social network account.
Asked in a twitter chat via the Adidas UK account if he would set up his own page, he replied: “Will have to wait and see, I like to do things properly so will only do it when I can commit to it.”
