You’re not the same Eminem that you used to be, but that’s okay. Because I, too, am not the same person I used to be when I first listened to you. I was 12 then, I’m 23 now. Things change, your situations change, people change. I know how life can be sucks sometimes but you can’t stay and whimper about it all your life.
In fact, I’m glad you’ve changed. I’m glad you grew up, coz I’m growing up with you and your music. If you stayed the way you were, I’d be growing up alone and leaving you behind.
But the very fact that you’re moving on with your life, the very fact that you’re better in handling your bitterness, taught me (and lots of your fans, I believe) a lot more than any haters could ever imagine.
I don’t know if you’d ever read this, but Em, I’m proud to be your fans. You Won’t Back Down, you’re Not Afraid.. You might be Brainless and went Berzerk from time to time, but for me you’re So Much Better than any other rapper in the world. You taught me about Survival, and not only that you’re Stronger than You Were, you made me stronger than I was too. I wish you know how much I owe you for making me as strong as I am now.
Long story short, I love you Em. I really do. I don’t care how many people told you it’s time to retire, screw them. Do whatever you want, your fans will always back you up.
Truly yours, your biggest fan. Not Stan.
