Kid Cudi Says Telling His Life Story For Upcoming Book Is ‘Scary’
In an interview with BET.com, Kid Cudi and Williams discussed the special, quality of their personalities that endears them to fans, and the tale Kid Cudi is most excited to tell in his autobiography.
BET.com: Love is a central topic of this televised program, with the finest kind of love being love for oneself. For each of you, what do you think is the most endearing quality that causes others to fall in love with you?
Williams: A lot of ladies spill their guts to me when I’m out with strangers. I’m glad there’s anything about myself that can elicit such a response. In social situations, several women have told me that I remind them of their best friend. They then on to tell me personal details about their lives, such as the man they’re seeing or the onset of their period, which I find endearing since, after all, things might be much worse.
Kid Cudi: Probably my affability.
New York’s BET.com One can never duplicate love. Just what is it that you’re looking for in terms of a romantic relationship?
Williams: I’m in my thirties now, and I’ve learned that it’s alright if not everyone loves me or even likes me. In order to attract more love into my life, I need to first love myself more deeply so that I can be the best Jessica that I can be. As a young adult, you may find yourself spending a lot of time with individuals you neither want nor need to be with. As a kind of self-love, my 15-step skincare routine has gotten me to a fantastic place.
BET.com: After the success of your animated program about Jabari, which had an accompanying record, you’ve decided to write a biography about your own life. If you could tell your audience one tale from the memoir, what would it be?
Kid Cudi: The first chapter, which I began writing between the ages of three and eight, starts when I was a little child. I’m curious to hear more about my childhood since most people don’t know that I grew up in a home with three siblings and a single mom, that I lost my father when I was 11 years old, and that I’ve had three consecutive years of family deaths. What it did to my spirit and how it shaped me into the guy I am today — how it messed me up and how I got over it — are topics I want to discuss.
A lot more light will be shown on the guy I am, which is crucial. Aside from the mainstream media, you also get tabloids and other sources of news and information that you may not fully understand. I feel safe enough to open myself up and share my thoughts and feelings.
In their new Netflix show, Intergalactic, Kid Cudi and Williams take viewers on a psychedelic journey in which they summon romantic success.
