Eminem, Facebook King. The rapper has that title all to himself after surpassing 60 million "Likes" Wednesday, more than any other living person.

Rihanna and Lady Gaga, who each have huge social media followings of their own, are Liked by about 59.4 million and 53.5 million, respectively.

Despite the fact that fan interaction and writing in first person on Facebook is the #1 way to get shares and Likes, being famous trumps all.

On Eminem's Facebook page, the 39-year-old generally posts links to YouTube videos of his music and interviews, with little or no comment.

According to AppData, Eminem is close to nabbing more than 26,000 "Likes" each day, with Rihanna not far behind with 22,000 "Likes" per day.

Rihanna and Gaga's more engaged approach top Eminem in the "talking about this" metric, however, which measures overall activity on a page.

Eminem has 290,896 people talking about him, while Rihanna has 1,016,304 and Lady Gaga has 1,209,588 ... that's a lot of Little Monsters.

When it comes to Twitter, however, Lady Gaga is the undisputed queen with more than 27 million followers. Justin Bieber has nearly 26 million.

P.S. Please Like THG on Facebook and help us catch Eminem! We're only like 59 million behind! Hey, 872,000 isn't too shabby people.

Mitt Romney. Eminem. We never thought those two people would be used in the same THG headline, but one epic music video parody has united them at last.

This amazing mash-up of Mitt Romney quotes and Eminem's "The Real Slim Shady" takes dead aim at the presidential candidate's flip-flopping reputation.

President Barack Obama and Mitt's all-but-dispatched GOP rival, Newt Gingrich, also make cameos in "The Real Mitt Romney," which is a must-see ...

Oxford student Hugh Atkin created the video, combining the Republican candidate's soundbites and the hit song from the rapper's 2001 Marshall Mathers LP.

Obama begins the video in much the same way as Em begins his track: "May I have your attention please. Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up?"

"Y'all act like you haven't seen a Mormon before... I'm not concerned with the poor," Mitt says in spliced-together clips from various campaign speeches.

As for that catchy chorus, Romney raps, "I'm Mitt Romney and I'm the real Romney ... All the other Mitt Romneys are just masturbating." Obviously.

In other mashup news, check out Obama singing "Sexy and I Know It"!

The bigger the crowd, the bigger my habit got.

So says Eminem in the latest issue of GQ, as the rapper holds little back when discussing the addiction that almost got him killed.

Eminem in GQ

“I’m very much a creature of habit,” the artist tells the magazine. “If I’m used to waking up in the morning and having [a Red Bull], I could do it every morning for the next ten years straight until I find something else to move on to. So if I’m used to taking a Vicodin when I wake up in the morning because I’m hungover from ­drinking or taking pills."

Pick up GQ for a lot more from Eminem's interview's, excerpts from which we've posted below.

Put your lighters in the air, music fans, and give it up for Bruno Mars, Eminem and Royce da 5'9″.

This trio has collaborated on the track that currently sits at number-five on the Billboard Hot 100. You've likely already heard "Lighters," but we've posted the newly-released official video for the single below.

It features Slim Shady navigating his way through a dark chamber, with a road flare as his only illumination. He soon comes across Royce in a jail cell, as the pair finds its way above ground and Mars just does his thing on the piano throughout...

A new Rolling Stone study has concluded that based on a variety of different factors, Eminem is the undisputed King of Hip-Hop. Do you agree?

No one's downplaying Eminem's talent, but with Jay-Z and Kanye atop their game, Lil Wayne back and the emergence of Drake, it was a tough call.

How did the magazine conclude who was the best of the best?

RS based its rankings on albums (2009-present), sales, rankings on various charts, YouTube views, social media, ticket sales, critical and peer opinions.

Had felonies committed and women impregnated factored into the metrics, Weezy would have taken this. But alas, he had to settle for #2.

Here's where Eminem and everyone else ranked:

With profits fading year after year, the decline of the music industry has been well documented, so it can hang its hat on this achievement courtesy of Eminem:

He became the first artist to sell a million digital copies of a single album with his aptly-titled Recovery. His manager, Paul Rosenberg, said in a statement:

"Over the years, we've made a concerted effort to engage Em's online fan base, so this achievement is especially rewarding."

Recovery Album Cover

Recovery features the major hits "Love The Way You Lie" and "Not Afraid." Recently, Eminem released the latest single from it, "Space Bound."

Lady Gaga is close to joining Eminem in this club, with more than 900,000 digital sales and counting of her monster 2008 release, The Fame.

Adele's sophomore smash 21 will beat her, though, and may even surpass Recovery before long. It's at 992,000 digital copies in just 19 weeks.

These are full album sales, mind you. The most-downloaded track of all time, the Black Eyed Peas' "I Got A Feeling," has sold seven million plus.

In fact, more than 200 songs have sold two million downloads or more, but Recovery's digital numbers are the first to track seven figures.

Filming yourself choking a porn star and then committing suicide is sure to upset a few folks.

But a British group known as Mothers Against Violence has taken criticism of Eminem to a new level. In a recent statement, the organization bashes the heck out of the rapper for his "Space Bound" music video (below), referring to the star as "evil."

"People who do this are really quite evil," the group says. "Children are influenced by the things they see. If we feed violence, it becomes strong. Like an addiction. It's all about the money with these videos. Eminem isn't thinking about the families affected. It's selfish - it comes to a point when selfishness becomes evil."

Do you agree? Is Eminem evil?

Whether he's dressing like Elvis or having Dominic Monaghan simulate domestic violence against Megan Fox, Eminem is not one to hold back in music videos.

Never has that been more true than in his latest offering.

For "Space Bound," the artist recruits porn star Sasha Grey to portray his source of torment. Rapping that "I blow my brains in your lap and lay here and die in your arms," Eminem and Grey go to a motel... where he attempts to choke his lover, watches her disappear in his arms, and then pulls out a gun and kills himself.

Shocking? Disturbing? Too dark? Or just Eminem being Eminem? Watch and decide now:

Slim Shady is back to his smack-talking ways.

In his new track "A Kiss," from Hell: The Sequel, his new collaborative album with Royce da 5'9, Eminem is in rare form, hammering away at two of the biggest names in the entertainment world today.

The rapper references the Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors (been awhile since we've heard about that) and basically calls Bieber Satan.

He raps: "Tell Lady Gaga she can quit her job at the post office/she's still a male lady. Wouldn't f--k her with her d--k/ You heard it/The verdict's in."

Okay then. As for teen sensation Bieber, he's apparently the devil, according to Eminem, who raps in the song that "evil runs through him."

Sounds about right.

At least he's cool with Katy Perry, though. We think. "Aw hell Shady, he'll tell it like it is/So Katy Perry he's on her tail/He's tailgaiting," he raps.

Pretty standard Eminem right there, although we doubt the fact that he's gone after anybody and everybody will assuage the singers' fans.

Little Monsters and Beliebers, have at it in the comments!

Peanut butter and jelly. Kim Kardashian and giant breasts. Blake Lively and a camera phone.

Some things just go together well. Consider Bruno Mars and Eminem as part that grouping.

The music heavyweights have collaborated on "Lighters," a track that also features Royce da 5′9″ and which will be featured on "Bad Meets Evil Hell: The Sequel," Royce's upcoming album with Eminem (out June 14).

Listen to the single below, as Mars sings on the refrain: This one’s for you and me living out our dreams, we’re all right where we should be. With my arms out wide, I open my eyes and now all I want to see is a sky full of lighters.
