Appeared blurred to a million true believers
DOOM “appeared blurred” because he wears a mask and guards his secret identity, but also because he had a habit during this period of sending surrogates to his concerts while staying at home himself. Since DOOM wears a mask, it was not always easy to tell when he was live in person and when he wasn’t. “Blurred” can also mean drunk or high, DOOM’s likely state when performing. Triple entendre, don’t even ask me how.
And if you thought that was all, he calls himself a “church nerd” and then makes a religious reference in the next line. There’s been lots of reported sightings of Jesus, Mary and other biblical figures, though even the best of them tend to be blurry. Like this image of Jesus on a Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
