slim shady

'Cause I'm Slim Shady, yes I'm the real Shady
All you other Slim Shadys are just imitating
So won't the real Slim Shady please stand up,
Please stand up, please stand up?

~ Eminem on The Marshall Mathers LP,2000 ~

If you're familiar, you may have a good chuckle. For those who are not, just who is Slim Shady? If you decide to Google it, I'm curious about your interpretation before you do so. As much as I love the song, this painting didn't start out as a pop culture slam. For me, Slim sounded like a charming, although Shady (hahaha) 1940s character, walking around with a healthy swagger.
