5. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eminem[/lastfm] — Slim Shady
So we’ve got [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eminem[/lastfm], the rapper. Marshall Mathers, the actual man. And Slim Shady, the alter ego.
Phew! It’s hard to keep up with that sometimes!
The rap superstar claims he uses his alter ego to preserve an air of mystery about who he really is.
As an artist, you wanna keep a certain mystique. I don’t ever want everybody to know everything that I’m joking about and serious about.
That’s the fun with creating and doing music — leaving that mystique for people’s imaginations so they can get what they wanna get out of it. I guess.
