Kid Cudi Checks Himself Into Rehab For Depression

Before I go any further, please read the post that Kid Cudi put on his Facebook page before checking himself into rehab for depression and suicidal thoughts.

Its been difficult for me to find the words to what Im about to share with you because I feel ashamed. Ashamed to be a leader and hero to so many while admitting I’ve been living a lie. It took me a while to get to this place of commitment, but it is something I have to do for myself, my family, my best friend/daughter and all of you, my fans.
Yesterday I checked myself into rehab for depression and suicidal urges.
I am not at peace. I haven’t been since you’ve known me. If I didn’t come here, I wouldve done something to myself. I simply am a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions everyday of my life. Theres a ragin violent storm inside of my heart at all times. Idk what peace feels like. Idk how to relax. My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it. I cant make new friends because of it. I dont trust anyone because of it and Im tired of being held back in my life. I deserve to have peace. I deserve to be happy and smiling. Why not me? I guess I give so much of myself to others I forgot that I need to show myself some love too. I think I never really knew how. Im scared, im sad, I feel like I let a lot of people down and again, Im sorry. Its time I fix me. Im nervous but ima get through this.
I wont be around to promote much, but the good folks at Republic and my manager Dennis will inform you about upcoming releases. The music videos, album release date etc. The album is still on the way. Promise. I wanted to square away all the business before I got here so I could focus on my recovery.

If all goes well ill be out in time for Complexcon and ill be lookin forward to seeing you all there for high fives and hugs.

Love and light to everyone who has love for me and I am sorry if I let anyone down. I really am sorry. Ill be back, stronger, better. Reborn. I feel like shit, I feel so ashamed. Im sorry.

I love you,

In my opinion this is one of the bravest things that a person can do. If you are one of those people who will laugh and basically say that only soldiers and police are brave, take a seat. It’s not the fucking time and they are both brave.

When it comes to men opening up about mental health there seems to be a really big stigma around it all. Growing up men are basically taught to be robots who don’t feel, no crying, and only being strong. Well there is nothing wrong with admitting that you need help and I love that Kid Cudi was able to realize that he did in fact need help.

May you come back feeling better than ever Cudi. I hope that you find your peace and don’t worry, you didn’t let anyone down.

Zac Efron Gets Candid About Depression, Tinder, & More In Recent Interview

Recently Zac Efron opened up to the British newspaper The Times about his depression, single life, and more about being a young star in the spotlight.

On the internet: “I lost my mind because of the internet. I’d read 30 positive things and one bad thing, then I’d harbor that bad thing. It drove me crazy.”

On his dating life: “Dating is something I’ll never be able to do, as in the dictionary definition of dating, because one way or another I’ve impacted that person’s life and they’ll soon realize it. A date has to be very long to dispel whatever people think of me.” He also admitted to signing up on Tinder but nobody thought that it was him, so nobody swiped right.

Opening up about his struggles: “I don’t want to sound high and mighty, and I only know my story. There’s a theory that actors should live like monks. You stay private, you make a great movie, then that’s all people see and you’re not a product of your struggle. But if you’re comfortable sharing your story, celebrate it. Most days I wake up excited now. Fifty push-ups, it’s a tradition I got from Batman. Once you’ve done 50 push-ups, you’re not thinking about anything else.”

About always being shirtless in films: “Take your shirt off. Know you’re a douchebag. Make an idiot of yourself. Then reap the benefits. What you get by doing this is street cred, then you get to work with great directors.I need to meet somebody face to face, then I can earn that dramatic cool role, that good role.”

Like I said this interview is really a great piece about Zac and shows that he isn’t some idiot actor. He is putting thought into his roles and what he is doing with his career.

Back to his Tinder moment though? I mean I can’t blame those people but I feel like I would have to swipe right if I ever saw Zac pop up on Tinder. Might as well give it a shot!

I really hope that Zac eventually gets the more dramatic roles that he craves because he does deserve them.
