Eminem has dethroned Lady Gaga as the most popular living person on Facebook, according to Famecount (dot) com. The Queen's reign lasted eight months.

With almost 29 million Facebook fans (people that "Like" is page), Eminem overtook Gaga, who still remains within a million fans of the rapper's overall total.

Only one person retains more Facebook popularity than Eminem - the late Michael Jackson. At just over 29 million Likes, Michael looks poised to fall to #2-3.

Lady Gaga held the lead since June 25 of last year, when she overtook President Barack Obama (who has since fallen to 12th place among living humans).

On Twitter, Gaga's 8.4 million Little Monsters dwarfs Eminem's modest 3 million, while he lags both Gaga and Justin Bieber on Twitter and YouTube as well.

Whoever's #1, they're in a class by themselves. Perhaps the three can form a social media triumvirate, pooling resources en route to world domination.

In perhaps the most anticipated event of the 2011 Grammy Awards, Eminem took the stage with Rihanna, Skylar Grey and Dr. Dre for a seven-minute performance.

Eminem and Rihanna opened with Part II of their collaborative hit, “Love The Way You Lie,” and as her vocals soared, Eminem appeared amid a fiery background.

Rihanna sounded so good, you'd never know she battled laryngitis and bronchitis leading up to the show, while Eminem's animated effort was brilliant as usual ...

After "Love the Way You Lie," he performed another slow-building track with female backing. Skylar Grey joined in on "I Need a Doctor," as did his one-time mentor.

Dr. Dre himself came on stage for the last verse, putting the finishing touch on this star-studded effort. Take a look above if you missed it and comment below.

Hyped as Super Bowl commercials may be, most are gimmicky and quite forgettable. Chrysler's effort featuring the Motor City's own Eminem was anything but.

Two minutes of gritty footage set to the rapper's "Lose Yourself" served as both an homage to Detroit's past and a look to the future in introducing the Chrysler 200.

Moving doesn't usually describe ads during football, but it sure applies here as the iconic American brand - and city - defiantly picks itself up off the mat.

With an assist from Eminem and a gospel choir, this is a bad ass commercial ...

The 53rd Grammy Awards are set for February 13, and some of the biggest names in music - Lady Gaga and Eminem among them - are set to perform.

Eminem leads with 10 nominations, while Gaga has six. Other nominees performing are Miranda Lambert, Katy Perry, Arcade Fire and Cee Lo Green.

It's unclear what they'll perform, but in Gaga's case, look for a bombastic rendition of "Born This Way," which is set for release around that date.

Here's a remix of some of the vocals from the much-anticipated title track to her new album, which will also be featured on Glee in the near future:

A sequel is rarely as good as its original. Just ask The Matrix and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Still, Rihanna and Eminem have chosen to tempt fate, releasing a follow-up to their number-one smash, "Love the Way You Lie."

In this version, Rihanna takes the lead, while the rapper sits back and gets his own verse near the end of the four-minute plus single. What prompted the female singer, who was initially opposed to the idea, to go along with part two?

With his new album climbing the charts, Eminem leads the list of nominees for the American Music Awards with five. Lady Antebellum also netted five nods in all.

You could definitely call this a successful Recovery.

Predictably, not far behind the star were Justin Bieber, who followed with four, then the likes of B.o.B., Katy Perry, Ke$ha and Usher, collecting three nods per.

Justin Bieber, Eminem, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry are all vying for the trophy in the coveted 2010 Artist of the Year category. Who do you think should win?

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn. But that's alright because I love the way it hurts...

Rihanna and Eminem already own the number-one song in the land. Now this power duo has come out with a hit video for the single "Love the Way You Lie."

And it stars Megan Fox! What else could you ask for? Watch below and then read Rihanna's take on the tune:

The song deals with domestic violence, something Rihanna says she and Eminem "have both experienced... on different sides."

She's referring, of course, to Eminem's problems with his ex-wife and her relationship with that monster Chris Brown. Adds the beautiful star:

“It just was authentic. It was real. It was believable for us to do a record like that, but it was also something that needed to be done, and the way he did it was so clever. He pretty much just broke down the cycle of domestic violence, and it’s something that a lot people don’t have a lot of insight on."

What do you think of the video?

Miley Cyrus has made it painfully clear for weeks now: she simply cannot be tamed.

But while this may be true in her wardrobe choices, the singer was cut down to size on the music charts last week. Her latest album, "Can't Be Tamed," finished third in sales, behind Eminem's "Recovery" and Drake's "Thank Me Later."

It was expected that Eminem would lead the way, but not by this wide of a margin. His new CD had the biggest opening week of any in 2010, moving over 753,000 copies.

As for Miley? She has to be disappointed, as "Can't Be Tamed" sold just 106,000 albums. That's an astounding 250,000 fewer than Cyrus' 2008 effort, "Breakout," sold during its first week of release.

Sales

Miley's fans will surely complain about our biased coverage now and make up excuses for their favorite artist. And that's fine, that's their right and we admire their passion.

But numbers don't lie: recent poll results show 70% of respondents laugh at the idea of Cyrus as a role model; moreover, her new CD actually sold fewer copies than her previous CD sold in its second week of release.

As we've been saying all along, is it possible Miley's new image may have gotten her attention, but turned away her fan base? Might she have been better served by slowly evolving as an artist, as opposed to pulling every transparent, cheap trick in the book just to prove she's changed?

These are questions Miley, her handlers and her cult-like followers will need to consider carefully.

  • I'm So Edgy!
  • A Tired Move

The public - literally! - is not buying Miley's tired attempts to be edgy and mature.
