Kid Cudi is a rapper musician who crossed over into comedy nerd world with appearances on Brooklyn Nine-Nine and his stint as Comedy Bang Bang band leader. He’s awesome and wonderful and talented.
Today he announced he’s entered rehab for depression and suicidal urges.
When someone makes the choice to get help, it’s brave. But to do so publicly, to let their millions of fans into the very brain that is attacking them, it’s a heroic act. Like Jon Hamm announcing he’d completed rehab for alcoholism, simply owning the narrative is a huge first step toward betterness, or whatever “betterness” looks like when you have a chronic disease that continually and eternally turns your own mind against you.
Love love love love to Kid Cudi. We need you, Cud Life.
