Kid Cudi has been really quiet regarding a sensitive subject for him. He didn’t talk about his depression for quite a while, and he motivated this with the fact that he felt ashamed.
During an upcoming episode of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook series called Red Table Talk the rapper has opened up about his mental health and his struggles.
‘I was really good at keeping my troubles hidden. Even from my friends,’ he said in a preview clip (via People), as reported by Page Six.
He continued and stated ‘I really was good with that. And it’s scary because you hear people say, ‘I had no clue.”
It also seems that some of his pals have been regretting not seeing the signs, but Cudi said it was more about him.
‘It was me,’ he explained. ‘I really went out of my way to keep what I was going through hidden because I was ashamed.’
This is not the first time when the rapper addresses the subject. Back in October he talked to the GQ magazine about this and said that he was considering checking into rehab.
He wanted to seek help for ‘depression and suicidal urges.’
Page Six reported that he said ‘I was thinking of ways to do it. It scared me straight. What scared me was that my mind was willing to go there. After all these years.’
If you want to check out more details, ‘Red Table Talk’ airs Monday on Facebook Watch.
Kid Cudi was in the spotlight again in November when he and Kanye West performed together at Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival.
After the performance, singer Lorde decided to slam them for ‘stealing’ her set design.
