Eminem Is A Master Linguist, “Stan” Officially Added To Oxford Dictionary

In 2000, Eminem released the song “Stan,”about an overzealous fan named Stan who’s obsessed with Eminem.

“Stan” began becoming used as a term to describe overly-obsessive fans, and 17 years later, Oxford Dictionaries has officially added it as a word.

The dictionary even cites Eminem as being the origin of the word, and the entry even throws a bit of shade at his longtime rival, Mariah Carey.
