Big Sean In Concert - Detroit, MI

December 9, 2000 Eminem released his extremely emotional & aggressive song, Stan. If you haven’t heard the song, it’s about an obsessed, stalker- like fan who eventually ends his life as well as his girlfriends, all because Eminem didn’t respond to Stan’s fan mail in a timely fashion.  As of yesterday, the term “Stan” has been added to the Oxford Dictionary. It’s definition- An obsessed fan who is fixated on a specific celebrity.  The term isn’t new, though! Fan bases all over the world have been using it to explain their love for their favorite celebs.
