Rihanna
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed,
get along with the voices inside of my head!
You're trying to save me - stop holdin' your breath!
And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy...

Eminem
I wanted the fame, but not the cover of Newsweek;
oh well, guess beggars can't be choosey.
Wanted to receive attention for my music,
wanted to be left alone in public, excuse me...

For wanting my cake, and eat it too, and wanting it both ways;
fame made me a balloon 'cause my ego inflated,
when I blew, see, but it was confusing,
'cause all I wanted to do is be the Bruce Lee of loose leaf!

Abused ink, used it as a tool when I blew steam; (Ahh!)
hit the lottery, oh wee!
But with what I gave up to get was bittersweet,
it was like winning a used mink.

Ironic, 'cause I think I'm getting so huge I need a shrink;
I'm beginning to lose sleep: one sheep, two sheep...
Going cuckoo and cooky as Kool Keith,
but I'm actually weirder than you think cause I'm...

I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed,
get along with the voices inside of my head!

And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy...

Well, that's nothing!
Well, that's nothing!

Eminem
No, I ain't much of a poet, but I know somebody
once told me to seize the moment and don't squander it,
'cause you never know when it all could be over tomorrow,
so I keep conjuring; sometimes I wonder where these thoughts spawn from...

(Yeah, pondering'll do you wonders;
no wonder you're losing your mind, the way it wanders.)
Yodel-odel-ay-hee-hoo! I think you've been wandering off down yonder
and stumbled onto Jeff VanVonderen!

'Cause I need an interventionist
to intervene between me and this monster,
and save me from myself and all this conflict,
'cause the very thing that I love's killing me and I can't conquer it!

My OCD is conking me in the head;
keep knocking, nobody's home, I'm sleepwalking!
I'm just relaying what the voice in my head is saying;
don't shoot the messenger, I'm just friends with the...

Eminem
Call me crazy, but I have this vision:
one day that I walk amongst you a regular civilian,
but until then, drums get killed
and I'm coming straight at MCs, blood get spilled.

And I take it back to the days that I get on a Dre track,
give every kid who got played at, pumped up feeling,
and sh*t to say back to the kids who play 'em;
I ain't here to save the f**king children!

But if one kid out of a hundred million
who are going through a struggle feels and then relates, that's great!
It's payback, Russell Wilson falling way back in the draft;
turn nothing into something, still can make that, straw into gold chump;
I will spin Rumpelstiltskin in a haystack!

Maybe I need a straight jacket;
face facts, I am nuts for real,
but I'm okay with that!
It's nothing, I'm still friends with the...

I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed,
(Get along with...) get along with the voices inside of my head!
(You're trying to...) You're trying to save me - stop holdin' your breath!
(And you think I'm...) And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy...

Well, that's nothing!
Well, that's nothing!

The Monster by Eminem featuring Rihanna

This Eminem-inspired wallpaper took me about 2-3 days to complete; titled "The Monster" after the song of the same name by America's most controversial rapper of the early 2000s, I wanted to portray Twilight Sparkle in some sort of... conflict with her inner monster alter-ego.

Twilight was chosen due to a line in the second verse of the song ("My OCD is conking me in the head / Keep knocking, nobody's home, I'm sleepwalking") - both Em and Twiley seem to have OCD, or obsessive-compulsive disorder, whereas the rapper is always perfecting each song he crafts and Twilight being very organization-heavy - she WILL get pissed if one thing looks out of place for her.

Influenced by some of ~JAVE-the-13's works, I continued practicing some lighting and shadows on this wallpaper while keeping a minimal and (slightly) bright but dark look.

Concept
"The Monster" is, conceptually, a sequel to my collaboration with ~Omniscient-Duck, titled Demons. In that wallpaper, we see a determined Twilight looking to face her fears and even the demon/monster inside her mind - but in this wallpaper, however, it seems that she may be giving in to her own personality, represented by her angry, outta-control ego (Angry/Crazy Twilight). Concerned, Twilight eventually decides to accept herself as she is, as if the monster within her swallowed her own dignity... or something.

A JPG version, along with a textless variant in PNG and JPG formats, can be found here.

I know i always listen to thisdeviantART +fav deviantART 
This is beautiful.  I'm not a fan of those particular artists, in fact it seems you and I have vastly different tastes in music, but if their song inspired this beautiful wallpaper, then kudos.  Oh and good job on the wallpaper, I wish I could art.

Ohh, this is sorta sad, but I really like it! It has a great feel to it!~
Twilight would be my third favorite character, but Rarity is mah first. ^u^ 
Actually, Rarity is my favorite, and all the others are my second favorite! haha!

Have you ever watched Friendship is Witchcraft?
elitewonderbolt's avatar
Nah the title doesn't really interest me. 
Kishmond's avatar
I wasn't really too excited about it either. There are lots of parodies out there, after all. The first two episodes are kind of boring, but it really picks up after episode 3.
