Props to Scott Mescudi… Don’t think I can add anything further to his words from his official release describing his checking into a rehab program … to deal with his depression…  just a few minutes ago on his Facebook page:

 

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,

Scott Mescudi

He’s one of my favorite recent rap musicians and I came across this excellent TED talk by Kid Cudi (Scott Mescudi) about his challenges from being a young teen & going forward to live his passion and pursuit for happiness… wise words from this 31 year old success story who’s super down to earth.

A must see for my boys (and any other young person)…

and a couple of my favourite music tracks from him (keep in mind, he’s being sarcastic and self-deprecating with his lyrics and visuals … 🙂):

Amanda Todd

Simply put, if you’re a parent of kids – boys or girls – you need to watch the incredible investigation (totally depressing, but essential watching) by CBC Fifth Estate on the online sextortion, harassment, and shaming to the point that Amanda Todd took her own life. All this despite several critical warning signs by both Amanda and her family to authorities including the RCMP.

It’s moments like this,  steps away from my home in Varennes… Accompanied by music,  the sounds of birds in their sanctuary,  the lapping of waves,  thoughts of those I truly love – and truly reciprocally love me…. That keep me going! Despite the worst adversity.

Le parc frayère Saint-Charles à Varennes est absolument recommandé… Sans doute un endroit relativement peu connu comment mais très magique.

Note : mosquitoes,  moustiques….

conrad-hilton-maldives-underwater-bedroom

Well, with 3 beautiful children, I’m quite decided to not have any more babies… but I must say, this underwater bedroom in the Maldives Hilton Conrad resort hotel might result in something like that. Oh, and yes, the Maldives Islands are just a relatively short flight from the southern coast of India.

Sure, if you can afford $3-5K per night … and don’t mind the fish watching YOU in the aquarium…

With the right person, I could see myself spending a night here.
