Kid Cudi Announces A Break From Social Media: ‘This Was Fun. Until It Wasn’t’

For quite some time now, Kid Cudi has been a very open person when it comes to his mental health. Last summer, he shared an honest message about his well-being through an Instagram post. “Sadness eats away at me sometimes,” the post read. “How do I deal? A lot of u hit me and ask how I get through. Truthfully, idk. Some days are great, others not so great.” Cudi has made it a point to do whatever he can to keep his spirits up, and in his latest attempt to do so, Cudi announced that he’s stepping away from social media.

He shared the news in a string of posts on Twitter. “I’m turnin’ off all comments on IG for all posts,” he wrote. “And I’m thinkin’ about gettin off IG all together, honestly. Think I’ma just keep my Twitter. And I’m only gonna do that cuz I have to. I really wanna get off all socials.” He added, “There’s a lot of love out there for me, which is why I got back on socials, but some of the shit I see, the trolls, I don’t need to see that shit. For my mental.”

Cudi also notified his followers that his most recent Instagram post would be the last photo that he shared himself. “So I think that pic is my last post. From here on out I’ma have my team make posts,” he wrote. “I love y’all. This was fun. Until it wasn’t.” Before stepping away from social media for the foreseeable future, Cudi assured fans that he was doing well. “And no im not in a bad mood or in a f*cked up place im actually very happy!!” he wrote. “In order to maintain that, im steppin away. I like being a mystery anyway.”

His announcement comes after he revealed plans to release two albums in 2022. Cudi is also set to appear in the upcoming Brittany Snow-directed film, September 17.
