This is probably one of the better stories I’ve heard recently. It turns out that British singer Dido seriously enjoyed her 2000 collaboration with Eminem, because she named her son after the son’s protagonist, Stan.
Now, this would be pretty cute, except for the fact that their song “Stan” told the story of a psychotic obsessed fan, who decides to kill himself and his pregnant wife after Eminem fails to respond to his letters on time. Perhaps this isn’t exactly the best role model for a little boy, but hey, to each his own.
People tend to be surprised by this, but I’m a huge Eminem fan, and this haunting ditty was always my favorite. Even though this was a strange choice, I hope she enjoyed her first Christmas with the little tyke.
