8 Mile Slim is very shady

8 Mile Slim is very shady

Once again, the author wishes to express his sincere gratitude for those who have most recently decided to become followers here at Newsspell.

If you’re a new arrival, you’re in for quite an introduction.

In a recent installment concerning the renowned pop music career of Madonna, one identified Hollywood and Broadway legend Ann-Margaret as a hidden family member, most likely her mother. In expanding one’s research, it seems Madonna has additional family relations, relations which have also been renowned as award winning stars in the contemporary music industry. These shocking revelations support one’s ongoing hypothesis that for decades, and perhaps since its inception, the American music industry has been monopolized by nepotism.

Admittedly, the recent media hoopla – which is no doubt completely drummed up –  between Eminem and music industry upstart Machine Gun Kelly served as a catalyst for the author to delve even further.

Once again, one shall present a well-known performer who was touted as having been plucked from the dregs of obscurity while struggling as a young artist in the trailer parks of a Detroit ghetto known as 8 Mile before eclipsing fame and fortune’s elusive mantle. But it turns out, this wasn’t so, and like Madonna and her mother Ann-Margaret, this particular performer was not only born into wealth and privilege, but also portrayed multiple personas within the music industry.

Loyal readers shall readily recognize his name, and the name of yet another famous, though controversial pop music industry personality he flawlessly but secretly portrayed during the decade of the 1990’s and proceeding well into the new millennium.

Having been born into wealth and privilege rather than working-class drudgery, this performer, like others of his ilk and his famous family members, was most likely trained from the earliest age and at the finest and most prestigious performing arts institutions before appearing onstage and on record to receive widespread fame and popularity.

And, before he became known as one of the music industry’s premiere performers and one of the most controversial stars in not only the genre of hip-hop but in the popular genre of alternative rock, he started off his skyrocketing career as a teen idol, known to his rabid teenage female fans as Leif Garret.

In fact folks, this former teen idol’s stage name exists as a primary clue as to the host actor’s actual genealogical identity, a stage name he used long before going on to portray other famous music industry personalities. Minus the letter M (=3/33), the name of Garret turns out to be a clever anagram for the pseudonym of the former teen idol’s legendary family relation: Garret (Margaret)

Prepare yourselves folks, because it only gets wilder from here! Continue reading “8 Mile Slim is very shady”
