Kid Cudi is making his second appearance in Esquire this year, this time in the May 2014 issue for their “music extravaganza” feature.Kid Cudi sits down with Esquire for a brief interview about life and the road he has taken to this point while taking a couple shots at Bieber (“He ain’t my son, thank God”).
Here’s an excerpt from the story as Cudi provides some interesting thoughts on fame:
Whatever age you are just before you’re famous, that’s where you stop the growth. Look at Michael Jackson, who got famous when he was really young and didn’t have a childhood. His whole life he was this childlike person. I got famous when I was twenty-three, so in my mind I’m almost still the twenty-three-year-old Scott, because I’ve been disconnected from reality and society for the past six years.
