Do You ‘Stan’ Eminem? If So, He Has a Form for You to Fill Out

The rapper who coined the term for obsessive fans is now making a documentary about them

After filling out a new questionnaire, Eminem‘s most ardent stans will stand a chance to make it into the upcoming documentary, Stans. The rapper posted a link to social media on Wednesday that leads to a form to fill out in order to prove your devotion to the artist.

Here are some sample questions:

“Would you consider yourself a ‘Stan’? Why / why not?”
“Do you collect Eminem merch, make Eminem artwork, write fan fiction, etc.?”
“Have you ever been to Detroit? If so, when, why, and where did you go?”
“How often do you listen to Eminem’s music? Look at his social accounts? Google for news about him?”

The questionnaire asks interested stans to submit a one-minute video of themselves about why they’re Eminem’s biggest fan.


Considering the word “stan” originated from Eminem’s 2000 track about a homicidally obsessed fan, it’s safe to assume these questions could be coming from a psychologist or the FBI as much as Eminem himself. But since Eminem announced in February that he would be co-producing the doc, whose launching point was Eminem and “the fans that worship him,” you’re probably safe (depending on what kind of fanfic you’ve written and why you visited Detroit, of course.)

“Stans will be the opportunity for us to turn the camera around and ask the audience about being fans — and in some cases, fanatics,” Eminem’s longtime manager Paul Rosenberg and Stuart Parr of Shady Films said in a joint statement in February. “This is a study of the relationship between fanbase and artist through the lens of one of Eminem’s most fascinating songs and one of the world’s most important entertainers.”
