Foul-mouthed rapper Eminem has found himself cushioned between an American president and a comedy great in a list of the 200 greatest pop culture icons.

The list was compiled by TV station VH1 and includes a string of celebrities ranging from actors and singers, to athletes, authors, political figures and fictional characters.

The CLEANING OUT MY CLOSET hitmaker came 31st in the poll, one slot ahead of former US president John F Kennedy and one behind funnyman actor BILL COSBY.

VH1 executive ROBERT WEISS comments, "I really think pop culture is a moving target, and this list is very much about now in 2003. If we did a list next year, I think there'd be some changes to the list."
