I was determined not to mention Debbie Mathers in my upcoming articles. However, her recent, full detailed statements about her son Marshall push me to utter my opinion.
Debbie might not be likable in many fans’ opinion, but I think that we, the public, have no right to judge her. Despite the numerous public arguments ( not to mention the Court cases that opposed her to her very much famous son), despite the quite obvious lack of sincerity in some of her former statements, we are totally ignorant of what happened behind closed doors between Eminem and his mom.
The question that is going through my mind is: does Debbie currently lack publicity for her book? Is she so desperate for attention that she needs to give full details about her son’s eating behavior and health disorders?
Why did Debbie release this tell all book? What are her intentions?
A wrong and common opinion is that people who are writing a book‘s intention is to make big money. True and dedicated writers know that every book doesn’t make a best seller.
Tabloids revealed, back in 2005, that Eminem’s mom was gravely ill, in terminal stage of breast cancer. So maybe this book was intented to be her version of the facts revealed to the world. Maybe Debbie Mathers feels the need to clear her image.
But why does Debbie always need to put her son down in her revelations? Why does she overload the media with annoying and embarassing details, such as those contained in a recent Daily Mail article?
Do real fans really care about Eminem’s weight? The answer is a straight no. While groupies might care, dedicated fans do care about the music.
During Christmas Holidays, Eminem has been rushed to the hospital. He is just recovering from pneumonia. It looks like the artist is exhausted after years of a devilish tempo dictated by the music industry.
Em’s family also has this destructive habit to wash its dirty laundry in public. We shouldn’t add to it.
I think the world should give Eminem a break and help the artist to release the pressure.
Eminem has been working hard for years for our ears’ greatest pleasure. We have been to his concerts, rejoiced with his successes, been supportive when needed.
Now everybody is impatient about Em’s next album…please give the man a break. He’ll come back when ready.
And if he doesn’t, let him live his life, listen to his music, remember the good times, explore new artists…the world of hip hop isn’t limited to Slim Shady!
