In a new interview with Pitchfork , daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, Maya Hawke says: “I love Eminem. His music is so angry and thrilling. I think “The Real Slim Shady” is the epic of our time, about the feeling of being like everybody else, but still being an individual—that song always meant a lot to me. With “My Band”, it’s kind of the opposite, about the desire to be recognized through your community.”
“Like: “The thing that makes me special is the people I surround myself with. You say you love me, but you don’t even know the name of my band! My band is the most important thing about me!” I love being a part of ensemble performances and collaborating on songs, and I love my family, so there’s something about that song and wanting recognition for your team that I just love. Recently, I’ve been listening to it a lot in the car with my boyfriend.”
