Alright, when I went to his show, he brought the song for the crowd and the 80,000 people singing it with Eminem, the word Stan was from the 2000s, so I was 2 years old, and definitely, I’m not listening to Eminem at that time. AND 17 YEARS LATER the word made it to Oxford Dictionary! Indeed Eminem is a genius, he read the dictionary despite failing the high school for 3 times. WELL you know, now that READING is the key to success am I right? if you want to see more you can check out genius.
The song Stan is a song written by Eminem through the point of view of a fan, you know a lot of people today has become the celebrity worshipers, and there is a term for that “celebrity worship syndrome”, for example, Indonesia has been the attention regarding the Burning Sun case, where fans from Seungri hold a meeting despite the concert is cancelled, later that day the fans issued an apology letter. This meaning to say a stan will do anything for their celebrity no matter what’s the condition is. And a stan is a parasocial relationship, between the fans, and the celebrity,
“Just to chat, truly yours, your biggest fan
