Original "Stan" Devon Sawa Weighed In on Eminem's Oscars Moment, and I'm Cracking Up
Eminem's surprise Oscars performance sparked plenty of reactions, including a few choice words from the original "Stan" himself. When the rapper appeared on stage to perform "Lose Yourself" 17 years after the hit won for best original song, he got a shout-out from his number one fan. Actor Devon Sawa, who played Stan in Eminem's music video for "Stan" back in 2000, took to Twitter on Sunday night to call out the rapper. "Oh look it's the guy that never calls or writes," he joked, giving a nod to the song's lyrics.
In case you've never connected the dots, yes, Eminem's song is where the phrase "stan" comes from, and when it comes to this memorable Oscars moment, well, we have to stan.
