Kid Cudi's debut album helped save the life of 'Saturday Night Live' comedian Pete Davidson when he was struggling with depression.
Kid Cudi helped save the life of 'Saturday Night Live' comedian Pete Davidson.
The 22-year-old actor - who is a regular cast member on the American sketch show - has admitted that he suffers with depression, and ''wouldn't be here'' if it wasn't for the 32-year-old rapper and his music.
Speaking on Clear Channel Media and Entertainment syndicated US radio show 'The Breakfast Club', the actor said: ''Cudi's the best of all. He saved my life. I would've killed myself if I didn't have Kid Cudi.
''I would've killed myself. Absolutely 100%. I truly believe if [Kid Cudi's debut album] 'Man on the Moon' didn't come out, I wouldn't be here.''
And Pete finds it ''comforting'' to know that Cudi - who recently checked into rehab for depression and suicidal urges - goes through ''the same stuff'' that he does.
He said: ''It's kind of comforting to know your hero goes through the same stuff you do.
''I think that's why a lot of kids my age can relate to Cudi and people love him so much is because he's a very emotional dude.''
The 'Day N Night' hitmaker - real name Scott Mescudi - booked himself into a facility earlier this month, after he admitted he was a ''damaged human''.
He wrote on Facebook at the time: ''It's 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 every day of my life. (sic)''
