There are several ways of measuring a celebrity’s popularity, but one of the easiest is by looking at the amount of likes the person has on Facebook. The first entertainer to reach more than 60 million likes on Facebook isn’t Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Rihanna or Lady Gaga, but Detroit rapper Eminem.
While Rihanna trails close behind with 59.4 million fans on the social networking website, it’s Slim Shady who was first to reach the 60 million threshold. But Twitter is a different story where Rihanna has nearly double the amount of followers with 23 million compared to Marshall Mathers’ 11 million.
In other Facebook news, David Beckham cracked 20 million likes earlier this week and celebrated by posting this image.
Here’s a ranking of the most popular Facebook celebrities:
1. Eminem 60.1 Million
2. Rihanna 59.4 Million
3. Shakira 53.4 Million
3. Lady Gaga 53 Million
4. Michael Jackson 51.1 Million
