Celebrities don’t inspire me, artists do. Scott Mescudi (Kid Cudi) really inspires me for a lot of reasons. For one thing he made it out of Cleveland. As much as I love my hometown I’ve always known that living there wasn’t for me. Being there wasn’t in my best interest for what I want to do with my life. Scott is honest in his lyrics , they’re not even lyrics they’re poetry.
Scott is a great poet and musician. He taught himself how to play the guitar and he isn’t afraid to share his emotions. These qualities have helped me become a better writer and a happier person.
I’ve admired Scott since I was in high school. But now in my 20’s I can truly say that Scott’s music has saved and changed my life. For a long time I hid my depression and anxiety. I hid it so deep inside of me that it became poison and made me go into a dark place that frightened me. I was lost and sad. Loneliness ate me and I felt like I didn’t serve a purpose in this world.
The truth is, I do serve a purpose. I’m not sure what it is but I do and I will make changes in people’s lives the way Scott did For me. Some people may think I’m strange for admiring him but his art played a role in saving me along with the love of my mother and sister and besides I don’t care about what people think. I’ve learned not to care about fitting in.
I’m never going to just blend in. I will always stand out as an individual and I’m cool with that. I can be anything I want to be. All I need in my life is my mom, sister , my writing gift, and the few people I can trust. The other things are just extra, extra like the celebrities that are famous for being famous. But Scott is an artist, one of the best artists of this generation.
