Eminem might have lost out on his bid for the Grammys’ Album of the Year, but that hasn’t weakened his following one bit. The rapper continued his recent siege on social networks and digital media by officially overtaking Lady Gaga as the most “liked” artist on Facebook. With over 28,883,000 “likes” at press time, Eminem has narrowly surpassed Lady Gaga’s “like” tally of 28,872,000, and with Em averaging over a half-million “likes” a week according to FameCount, the rapper will only widen the gap between himself and Gaga.
Lady Gaga attained the “most-liked person” distinction in July of last year, when she overtook the leader of the free world as most-liked. (At the time, President Obama had 9.4 million Facebook fans; Gaga had 10 million.)
This means Eminem is more well-“liked” than both Lil Wayne and Oreo’s, but not as well-“liked” as Michael Jackson, who leads all Facebook “likes” with 29.1 million. At this pace however, Eminem should steal the King of Pop’s FB throne in approximately one day.
