EMINEM Makes the Oxford Dictionary via @lisafordblog.com

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."
