    Billboard reports that rapper Eminem is now only the third person ever to have more than one billion views on YouTube, according to Famecount.com. Eminem had hit 1,000,163,659 YouTube views as of Monday, February 21st. Em's only peers to share this accolade are Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. The Bieb has achieved 1.3 billion views, while Gaga has snared 1.189 billion views. Famecount.com, a social media fame tracking company, also reports that Eminem is also on track to defeat Lady Gaga as Facebook's top living celebrity sooner than later.

    What makes this news interesting to me is that Gaga and Bieber are new millennium celebrities, whose fame has come in the later years of the '00s. Em has been rocking our worlds since 1999, so he is considerably "older" than his peers in this category. It shows that he has longevity and is still relevant as he enters the second full decade of his career; he is not a flavor of the month.

    Who is your fave: Em, Gaga or The Bieb?
