Definition of "stan":
Based on the central character in the Eminem song of the same name, a "stan" is an overzealous maniacal fan for any celebrity or athlete.

It's different from being just a fan.



For example:

A Typical Kobe Bryant Stan would say something like:
"Kobe Bryant scored 81 points last night. Kobe could beat God himself in a game of 1 on 1 hoops. To hell with Michael Jordan or Wilt Chamberlain, they arent on Kobe's level!"

-------------------------

So which celebrity / athlete / band / famous person do you stan for?

I stan for two. The one on my avi, and 2NE1.

Celebrities are boring =/ I like Johnny Depp because he keeps to himself and seems very down to earth and open about his past. Which is a pretty badass past

No one. Hey, I hate ravenous and maniacal fans. I don't want to become one because I know how stupid they are.

Wrong. What you stated was the opposite of what I am. Stan is basically a fine example of fandumb at work. I am moderate in my hobbies, likes, and dislikes. I can't stan because I have fixed temperament.

I respect celebrities who bounce back after going through really shit press, like Spears and any other who hit real lows and sink lower due to the eyes of the world judging them, but still come back out better than when they went in. I know I mate the Celebrities You Hate thread but those people piss me off. Dealing with press is more of an achievement in my eyes. Can't imagine what it must be like -__-

Not anyone, really. I'm a regular fan of quite a few people, but I wouldn't go crazy over them or keep on saying how better than everyone else they are etc.

Btw, Stan is a combination of Stalker and Fan. FYI, JIC.
