Eminem, Marshall Mathers, Slim Shady...has surpassed 10 million fans on Facebook, according to Famecount. As the reports, he thus becomes only the second living musician to have done so - behind Lady Gaga - whose recent smashing of the 10 million fan barrier was well documented and now boasts more than 15 million Facebook fans.

So far only 4 total musical entities have made it passed the 10 million worldwide Facebook fan mark, and it is indeed an elite group. Deceased musician Michael Jackson leads the charge with 18.3 million fans, followed by Lady Gaga (15.3 million), and Linkin Park (10.3 million). Lil Wayne currently leads the 'Best of the Rest' with a total of 9.7 million fans.

The ranking represents a return to the top of the industry for the reformed star, who confesses in the first single from his most recent album Recovery that his previous album, Relapse, represented less than his best work. 'Eminem's base of over 10 million Facebook fans is currently growing 4 times as fast as the global Facebook average according to social media monitoring tool,' said Jamie Gavin, Founder and Senior Digital Media Analyst at Jay-G Media.'This makes him one of the fastest growing Facebook entities in the world. Additionally, the star's online fan base of 1.3 million Twitter followers and 158,000 YouTube channel subscribers make him the 16th most famous social media entity anywhere in the world on an aggregated basis.

With his latest single, Love the Way You Lie ' a haunting collaboration with fellow Facebook top 10 ranked music star Rhianna ' sat firmly at the top of the U.S. singles chart, Eminem's online popularity looks set to grow even further as he appeals to a whole new generation of music fans.
