“I used to like Eminem, until I got ‘The Real Slim Shady’ rammed down my throat, played to death. I mean, it was a good song, good lyrics etc. but I got sick of it, hearing it so much.” Well, that’s a stellar reason to no longer like an artist. You’d be surprised as to how many times I’ve heard words along those lines. It seems that as soon as an artist becomes successful, and the media takes over, noticing what sort of a draw the artist’s material has – that the artist all of a sudden has fallen off. Or has sold out. This doesn’t make too much sense to anyone who is able to see through the fog, but few seem able to penetrate the mist.
