Kid Cudi

"I started doing cocaine to get through interviews, 'cause people wanted to know a lot about my personal life and I wasn't prepared for a 60 Minutes interview every time. Doing bumps I was able to get through the day, but then I would smoke weed to calm me down it was the only way I could get through the day without people noticing I was doing it... never thought it was a problem, but I was definitely high-fiving death a couple of times. It took a lot for me to talk about **** like this on the album."
