To most of her friends at Jess and Trevor's wedding, Katie was known as Katie the Bridesmaid. But by the end of the day's festivities, we like to think guests were calling her the Real Slim Katie. After all, that is how the MC introduced her to the crowd when it was time for her to deliver a speech in honor of the newlyweds.
A video has emerged on YouTube of a bridesmaid named Katie performing a five-minute version of Eminem's "The Real Slim Shady" at her friends Jess and Trevor's wedding, but her rendition of the song features new, ultra-specific lyrics that tell the bride and groom's love story, and she performed the whole thing from memory.
As you may recall, the chorus in Eminem's original version went a little something like this: "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?" Katie perfectly wedding-ified her rendition, with a foot-tapping chorus that the whole crowd could join in on: "We're all here to celebrate a couple that is really great/Help me with a toast to the lovely hosts/Will the bridesmaids please/Raise your glass, raise your glass and drink?" And every time that chorus came around, she swapped the word "bridesmaids" out for a different group of wedding-goers: groomsmen, the family of the groom, the family of the bride, the bride and groom, and, finally, everyone.
Katie proved that not only does she know Jess and Trevor's love story really well, but she also has a gift for telling said story with seriously awesome rhymes. Here's how she told the story of their proposal: "On April 1st they pulled a prank we never would forget, fooled us all with a fake proposal at sunset. We shot him a death glare, but as we started to stare, we saw a small box—what was in there? OMG, Trevor got on one knee, pulled out a ring and said, 'Jess will you marry me?' " If you ask us, this rap was a better gift than something off the registry.
