Hip hop icon Eminem recently shared a picture on his Instagram which apparently gave a huge thanks to Jim Carrey. In 1998, Carrey starred in The Truman Show, which told the story of a man who’s entire world was one giant TV set.
Eminem wrote, “The concept for the Eminem Show was inspired by ‘The Truman Show’ because my life felt like it was becoming a circus around that time and I felt like I was always being watched. Basically, Jim Carrey wrote my album.”
The homage was paid to Carrey due to the 15th anniversary of Eminem’s album “The Eminem Show”. Since its release on May 21st 2002, the album has sold over 29 million copies. A part of the anniversary celebration includes a re-release of the album, and a “time capsule” which includes a cassette of the album, a retro Slim Shady t-shirt, and a poster.
