EMINEM Makes the Oxford Dictionary via @lisafordblog.com Tuesday 06 June, 2017

The culture of Hip Hop continues to transform the modern world including our present-day language and the way that we speak day to day. Case in point…EMINEM’S song and term “Stan” has been added to the Oxford Dictionary. “Stan”, the hit record from Em’s “Marshall Mathers” LP released in 2000 is about “a crazed fan who became so irate that Eminem didn’t return his letters that he killed his pregnant girlfriend, drove off a bridge, and drowned. The term “Stan” has since been used in much less-than-gory contexts to describe one’s liking and admiration for pretty much anything.”

Oxford defines “stan” as “an overzealous or obsessive fan of a particular celebrity” and lists its origins as “Early 21st century: probably with allusion to the 2000 song ‘Stan’ by the American rapper Eminem, about an obsessed fan.”

See exact definitions below. Oxford Dictionary also shows you how to use “Stan” in a sentence with these examples:

“I’m an Outkast stan, so pretty much anything and everything they’ve done makes me happy.”

“I admit I used to stan for Mariah when I was eight.”
