Maybe it's the way he lies.
Rap star Eminem has become the most popular person in the world – at least, on Facebook, according to one measure.
The Detroit-born rapper officially became the most-liked person on Facebook this week with 28.9 million fans, beating out Lady Gaga by about 5,000 "likes" as of Thursday afternoon.
The accomplishment was first noted by Yahoo!’s music blog, the Amplifier.
While she may have lost the Facebook crown, Lady Gaga has 8.4 million followers on Twitter – more than twice as many as Eminem’s 3.2 million.
The Facebook "like" record isn't the only record broken lately by a rapper.
Last week, rapper Lil Wayne, who has 20.4 million fans on Facebook, broke the record for likes on a post. The idea came after an ad campaign where Oreo cookies tried to convince users to "like” them the most.
The brilliant post? "Everyone, please 'Like' this post. I'm trying to break the Guinness World Record for most 'likes' on a post in 24 hours. Let’s get it!"
All three of those musicians lose where it really matters, though: the charts.
Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber's album topped that measure of popularity this week, according to Billboard.
Earlier this month, Eminem won two of the 10 Grammys he was nominated for at the annual awards ceremony. His most heartbreaking loss was album of the year, to Arcade Fire's "Suburbs."
Luckily for Eminem, they can't touch him on Facebook.
The band has a mere 704,711 likes on its Facebook page.Source
