Sometimes our whole world seems to break down and when we are going through harsh life situations, it looks like we hit rock bottom and are unable to stand up.
Liam owes a lot to Eminem’s music:
Â« Em is such an inspiration to me i would literally be dead if it wasn’t for him. Â»
Liam faced some serious charges in 2002 and was jailed. He was only released from jail a couple moths ago.
But it looked like life was even treating him harder afterwards. He had to cope with his father’s death and an alcoholic mother’s behavior. He was ready to take a bunch of pills in order to relieve his immense pain:
Â« I went to prison for a grievous bodily harm charge back in 2002 only got out a couple of months ago… A lot of stuff has gone on, the death of my dad being the most hard hitting to me……… after my dad died I moved in with my alcoholic mother, life got really shitty for me so i decided to take a overdose just a couple of weeks ago but as i was literally holdng the pills in my hand eminems song “When I’m Gone” came on and i just burst into tears and put the pills down…the song means so much to me now as does Em.. Â»
Eminem is a real inspiration to Liam and his recent song showed Liam that there was a way out of the world of addiction:
Â« He is my inspiration and thinking about him makes me feel strong. Â»
I’d like to address to the people who only see a bad influence in Eminem’s music. First of all, don’t judge the book by its cover: Eminem might appear as a full mouthed, always swearing and offensive emcee.
However, people gotta have a deeper look at the brilliant lyricist he actually is and also at the meaning behind his words. Many of us Eminem fans come from different countries and backgrounds, but most of us have something in common: we can relate to Marshall Mathers’ songsâ€¦maybe in very different ways, but his songs often have a strong meaning to many of us.
Next time you narrow minded are tempted to draw a very negative picture of Eminem, try to envision that his words have saved many people from drowning in their sorrows.
Thank you, Marshall, for the many lives you changed in a positive way through your music. Many of your fans owe you a lot.
