Eminem’s Alter Egos In Albums
Eminem’s album The Marshall Mathers LP was very popular but also praised by critics. Most interesting thing about this album is appearance of his alter egos. First one is Slim Shady, psycho and rapist-and it became very popular among his fans, probably because of his ability to say everything about everyone, without any fear of critic. The second one is gay guy Ken Kaniff, whom Eminem used to ridicule gay people on this album. This album was also used to express anger toward ex wife Kim. They got married in 1999 and separated just 2 years later. Meanwhile they got daughter Hailey Jade. They separated when Kim become drug addict and also cheated Eminem with other men. Two of them got back together in 2006, but separated again just few months later. Now they are on good terms, and they say that’s because of their daughter.
Hailey these days lives in Eminems house in Rochester Hills, Michigan, just outside of Detroit, which has been home to the rapper for few years now.Eminem’s big friend Proof was killed in a club in 2006, and this hit Eminem hard-and pushed him into pill addiction. In 2008, Eminem managed to turn his life around and stop using pills, thanks to big help of friend Elton John.
These days, Eminem is laying low and keeping his private life for himself. There is even no definite proof of who is Eminem girlfriend now. There is rumor that it is one of his crew members, Tracy McNew, but they have so far denied it. Do you think that this lady is his true love? Please comment bellow.
Eminem’s life has had many ups and down, just as life of Dr Dre and 50 Cent, two other famous rappers. It seems that rappers’ lives are very dramatic, don’t you agree?
