The Real Slim Shady
This rapper from Detroit has so many names and nicknames that some people don't realize they're all the same person. Marshall Bruce Mathers III is what Eminem was named when he was born. He uses Eminem as his rap name because it represents his initials "M-and-M" - get it? Also, he sometimes uses the nick Slim Shady to express his rougher, meaner alter-ego (the other side of his personality).
Eminem Gets His Big Break
Marshall Mathers was discovered by rap icon, Dr. Dre. Ever since Emeinem's first big label CD dropped, The Slim Shady LP, he's been creating an upset with his lyrics and his style. Although some people (the US Congress, Tipper Gore and others) consider him a bad influence on youth, fans can't get enough of Eminem or his music. Eminem is considered the number one rap artist in the world right now.
Eminem Is Not a Moma's Boy
Eminem, as most fans know from his lyrics, is not a moma's boy. In fact, his mom, Debbie Mathers-Briggs, has sued Eminem because his lyrics bash her so much. Hopefully Eminem's daughter, Hailie Jade Mathers, won't feel the same hostility towards him.
And The Oscar Goes To...Eminem!
Eminem's tune, Lose Yourself, won an Oscar for Best Original Song at the 2003 Academy Awards. The song was from his debut movie, 8 Mile.
Eminem - Did U Know?
- When Eminem was young, he was bullied so badly, that a fight actually put him in a coma.
- Despite what people think, Eminem did not spend his whole life in trouble with the law. Eminem's first arrest came when he was 20 years old and it was for shooting a paintgun at a police car. The charges were later dropped.
- Emeinem has a younger half-brother named Nathan. Nathan Mathers lives part-time with Eminem in his Detroit mansion.
"It'd be stupid for me to sit here and say that there aren't kids who look up to me, but my responsibility is not to them. I'm not a baby sitter. "
I think Eminem is so fine and if I had one wish it would be to meet him. I love his songs, but my #1 favorite is Superman. Shady can you be my Superman? I love you!!!
