- Eminem is commonly cited as one of many best rappers of all time.
- But, the habits of his followers and different weird hangers-on have made the information greater than something musically that the rapper has finished.
- Maybe it’s time to cease with the “stan” habits and begin specializing in what made Marshall Mathers well-known within the first place.
Eminem is commonly cited as one of many best rappers of all time. Whether or not you want his music or not, he has modified the face of hip hop.
Regardless of this, he hasn’t made the information for his musical choices recently. (And there’s a great motive for that, sadly.) Moderately, he’s made the information as a result of his kinda-sorta ex-girlfriend wrote a e-book…and since a fan in Scotland used him, in a method, to interrupt a world document.
Didn’t Eminem Rap About Stans Like This?
Within the traditional Eminem observe “Stan,” Marshall Mathers spits 16 a few fan of his changing into more and more obsessive about him and more and more unhinged to the purpose of murder and suicide.
As a refresher, take a take heed to the track beneath.
Because the video demonstrates, “Stan” just isn’t an instruction handbook. It’s a cautionary story.
Somebody ought to have let Nikki Patterson from Aberdeen, Scotland, know this — as a result of previous woman simply earned the Guinness World Document for having essentially the most tattoos of the identical musician. (I didn’t even know this was a factor.)
As NY Publish, through Fox Information, reviews:
Patterson, who goes by @CrazyEminemLady on Instagram, additionally tells Fox Information she’s additionally gotten a 16th tat since her document was confirmed, with plans for 5 extra within the close to future.
Patterson first turned an Eminem fan when she was 14 (she’s 35 now), has seen him reside seven instances, and has an extra twelve different tattoos on her physique which can be merely “impressed” by the rapper and never simply portraits of his face. Meaning this lady has a complete of twenty-eight tattoos of Eminem — both of his face or his lyrics — and has plans to get one other 5 quickly.
None of this — completely none of it — is important.
Don’t Let Fandom Turn out to be Obsession
Look, everybody is a fan of one thing. I, myself, am a self-admitted fan of each “Star Wars” and Okay-Pop bands. However there’s a world of distinction between having fun with a creation — and its creator — and changing into dangerously obsessive about it. Whether or not the goal of your obsession is Eminem or One Path, being this obsessive about a celeb that doesn’t know you exist is not wholesome.
For those who can not name a celeb in an emergency, they aren’t your pals — you’re a fan to them, and nothing extra.
And as somebody with expertise within the leisure trade, I don’t discover tales like Nikki Patterson’s humorous, cute, or newsworthy. I discover them downright scary — and there’s nothing “cute” about admitting to the world that you just’re “loopy” obsessive about a celeb.
Even Eminem’s followers — a faithful bunch, if nothing else — suppose even this is a bit of too loopy for them.
Eminem has already had an issue with harmful stans previously. Lately, one even tried to kill him. He’s not the primary movie star that’s had an issue with stans, and he gained’t be the final. And we, as journalists, must cease giving priceless headlines to stans who use his title — and different well-known names — to get consideration.
