Advantages: Great Rapper
Disadvantages: Gets blames for pretty much everything...
"His lyrics are totally, socially, unacceptable, but you know, if we just spend some time with our kids, we'll be ok!!!"
That is the introduction that Jim Carrey gave Eminem at the MTV awards a couple of years back, and it sums up the truth perfectly. OK, his lyrics are, shall we say, opinionated, but they are only lyrcis, lets just remember that fact.
People say that Eminems lyrics inspire violence, encourage drugs and drive youngsters to shoot their schoolmates etc. Somehow, shootings are automatically blamed on usually rap artists in general, but more recently, Eminem himself, even though the incidents will have had nothing to do with him. As Eminem says in his song, "The Way I am", the lyrics "Where was his parents at?", suggesting that it is the way the parents bring thier kid up that influences them the most, not one of his songs.
Lately, people have been blaming homophobia on Eminem. How can this be branded on him, after his appearance with Elton John. He duetted with him, and then HUGGED HIM at the end. Surely not the work of a homophobic narrow minded lady-beater, but that of a normal human being, doing what he does best.
Now, violence has also been blamed on Slim, but while parents still encourage their kids to play with Action Men and toy soldiers, there is no way that this is fair.
Think about for a second if you are an Eminem hater. Everything I have said is just my opinion, but I believe it to be absolutely true.
It's JUST MUSIC...
