Although Eminem has been a mainstay in hip hop for over a decade, he continues to break records, this time however, not in album sales but rather online popularity.
According to Famecount, Eminem became only the third person in the world to receive more than one billion views on youtube, barely behind Lady GaGa and teen sensation Justin Beiber:
"At Famecount, we have watched Eminem’s social media fame explode over the last 6 months. Eminem is only the third star in history to achieve 1billion YouTube views, while on Facebook Eminem looks on course to take the top spot". (Daniel Darlove, founder)
Another online feat was surpassing Lady GaGa and her "little monsters" on facebook with 28.88 million facebook fans. GaGa is just slightly behind the rapper in fan count, with 28.87 million fans. However, both concede the number one spot to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, who currently has 29.13 million fans.
