While the Marshall mathers Lp is known as the most provocative of Eminem’s albums, the Eminem show is getting more personal and also more introspective.
Eminem exposes his life like a show to his public.It’s like a total exposure, something he wants to share with his public.
Some of his songs like “Cleaning Out My Closet”,”Soldier”,”Saying Goodbye To Hollywood”,”Hailie’s song” are personal.Some others like “White America”,”Square Dance” do raise political debates.
Eminem also targets his enemies like Moby in his album.
“Cleaning Out My Closet” is an emotional and moving song. This songs helps Marshall to work out his hatred for his parents. Often misunderstood for the hate he feels towards his own mom, his hatred is justified,though. Debbie emotionaly abused her son, she’s also responsible of his drug addiction: she put him on “ritalin”( which is a medication for hyperactive kids) when he was little.
Woul you forgive your mom if she said she wished you dead? I guess the answer is no.
Moreover,if we take a deeper look at “Cleaning Out My Closet”, we clearly understand that this song has not been written to express selfish views. It has also been written to prevent from children abuse.
This song helps many young people who come from disfunctional families to work out their problems with their parents and to express the rage they feel inside. Hailie’s song is a beautiful hymn of fatherly love and an expression of Eminem’s real side.
According to a new survey, Eminem is “more truthful” than President George W. Bush. How is that possible? Simply because the youth is fed up with empty political speeches. Eminem clearly shows the hypocrisy of politicians.The assassination of Dick Cheney in the “Without Me” video is a symbol for freedom of speech.
Eminem fights for the right to say ” something you might not like” (Square Dance”). He doesn’t rap to please people, he speaks his mind.He is an engaged artist.
The “Eminem Show” is excellent. It reveals the mind of a genius, as Eminem expresses it so well in “My Dad’s Gone Crazy”:
My songs can make you cry, take you by surprise at the same time, can make you dry your eyes with the same rhyme/see what you’re seein’ is a genius at work, which to me isn’t work, so it’s easy to misinterpret it at first”
Eminem masters his art.
