If you stan a musician or celebrity you're a big fan. A person like that is also called Stan. "To stan" is the verb for being a Stan. You're obsessed witha certain celebrity and like them very much. You know almost everything about them and give other fans (who are not stans) information or help them because you know more than the maority of the fandom.

It is also used to simply say that you really like an artist.

There are two different kinds of stans, soft stans and hard stans
- "Do you know EXO?"
- "Yes, I stan them."

- "I stan 24K."

-"Do you stan them?"

-"You have to stan VIXX! They're the most talented group ever!"

- "Their new song is so dope, I think I gotta stan them."

A reference to the Eminem song Stan. The song is about an overly obsessed fan (named Stan) who writes letters to eminem and ends up driving off a bridge with his pregnant wife, because Eminem didn't write him back.

The terms means a very very overzealous and obsessed fan of a celebrity/band/cast of a tvshow or movie.
