When you think of the greatest male pop icons of all time, you might not immediately think Eminem.
But, when you ask Justin Bieber to name the greatest five male pop stars of all time, The Biebs gives Shady one of the top spots.
Here’s a look at JB’s list, as told to Billboard:
"The first thing that comes to mind is Michael Jackson, obviously. I just think that his iconic brand and what he stood for as an artist was groundbreaking."
"He’s really inventive. He had his own style."
"I guess Eminem is kind of a pop star. I know he’s a rapper, but I feel like he was a pop star too, a little bit, based on his brand."
"He was my mentor and still is my mentor. Coming up under him was really special."
"He’s an amazing pop star. I’ve always respected the fact that he wasn’t afraid to just be himself."
