And the song they preformed was the track "Stan" off the Marshal Mathers LP. The whole thing was a shout out to his fans to learn to separate fact from fantasy and to realize that the whole Slim Shady thing is an act, an outlet for Eminem's anger and frustration, and something not to be emulated.
Act or no, it was offensive.
I honestly had no idea Hailie was a teen. Children of celebrities are always coddled and pampered their whole lives though, so who knows how they've fared psychologically considering their father's highly offensive style of music from his past.
I do hope he's a good enough father to not allow his girls to listen to his music. They'd probably freak out and/or kill him in his sleep hearing about how he wanted to shoot Hailie's mom...
今 現在 過去 未来 その先や後は 全然 見えないみたい
期待膨らませ夢見る未来 だからもう過去には 戻らない
今のまま そのままの自分で十分だな この人生の中
明日 あさっての自分を想い描こうなんて 考えたらきりがないし
わがままに ただ 遠回りしたけど
ガムシャラにただ… 見えるだろう ほら 君のストーリー※
僕らの放つ言葉を Check it I know I know! know you can make it
これから 続く旅路の中で いったい幾つの出会いや別れを
繰り返して時が薙がれて また 大人になってゆく
今を一歩二歩三歩 これをkeep on 願いはきっと叶うから
la la la…
la la la…
これからも旅は続くけど ずっと ずっと そのままで
It's just a sham, an act. He didn't actually mean any of that stuff.
You have to realize that most Americans don't know Mandarin from Korean from Japanese in terms of text, which makes copy-pasting into a translator much more difficult.
Back on topic, I could care less about Eminem because for one I never listened to or even heard of his new stuff (Recovery, etc.), just his "Angry Raging Hormone Man" years or "Slim Shady" act, but if he's went from Savage to Saint this quickly then I may have to try to listen to his Recovery album some day. Leech it off of a friend or something, I refuse to pay for anything Rap related.
Most of what turns me off of Rap however are the fans and the "Gangsta Rap" fans.
I cannot believe how many young people at my school with real potential to be something threw it away to be like 2pac or Eminem or whatever. Black, white, Asian-descent, any of them got into fights quite regularly and one even had to get tazed by the school's resident security officer for wielding an assisted-opening knife and threatening to stab another student.
If more young people realized these people are musical artists that sing about fictitious situations drawn from a whimsical interpretation of their lives rather than a literal representation of their life story, I wouldn't have a problem with these guys. Sadly kids are stupid nowadays and can't separate fact from fiction without a jolt of electricity and some shiny silver bracelets on their wrists.
The future ahead looks like no other in the past.
It's because the past held so many expectations.
It left just enough in this life for myself.
Somethings things change but right now is not enough.
People go for their goals which cannot be changed.
I stopped here but I don't know where I'll go.
Let's not go on forever!
I think about my feelings for the drawn tomorrow.
We care about your feelings right now.
Send this message as is.
I know the tough say 'take the longer path'
I just spoiled the dream I drew from my heart.
I'm not wrong! I'm just reckless!
Your story will appear in time.
You were walking along until my heart came in your path.
No need for you to change.
We should leave it as is to someone we can trust.
Because we will always be stuck on the same page.
So lets unleash our future now!
Check It! I know I know! I know you can make it!
It flows through for many days,
since the night I shed tears in fear I was helpless.
Now I drift along with what seems like everyone behind me.
They help so that this song can reach the sky.
Nothing has changed though.
I'll never forget this feeling
Meething several friends to follow on this earth into the future.
As an adult I see my footsteps will be repeated by others.
I just wish they couldn't see my detours along the way,
So they can see my wish to be perfect.
But now I face forward and continue walking to the end.
La La La...
I know there is much for my heart to feel in the future.
La La La...
I will remember that my future journey continues as is.
