(Radio.com) Many Eminem fans love his 2000 song "Stan" off his third studio album The Marshall Mathers LP. Now, the Oxford English Dictionary has acknowledged Real Slim Shady's contributed to rap and pop culture by adding the term "Stan" to its database, citing the rapper as the term's originator.

The entry for "Stan" used as a noun reads, "An overzealous or obsessive fan of a particular celebrity." When used as a verb, the entry reads, "Be an overzealous or obsessive fan of a particular celebrity."

In the track, Eminem raps from the perspective of a man "Stan," who loves the rapper more than his own girlfriend and kills her in frustration to the rapper not responding to his many letters. Read more here.
