Chipmunk says he threatened to commit suicide because his life is so hectic and is now taking time to rest and come to terms with his success.
Chipmunk threatened to kill himself because he can't cope with his hectic life.
The 'Oopsy Daisy' hitmaker - who caused concern earlier this month when he posted a series of disturbing messages on his Twitter page, including "I wanna die" - is trying to scale back his commitments after a whirlwind year of success took its toll. He doesn't even plan to celebrate his 19th birthday today (26.11.09).
He told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "I just needed to take some time out to rest and get my head together. I try and take everything in my stride. It's been a successful year for me.
"But I still haven't had the chance to let anything sink in yet, I haven't had a chance to think about it all. I'm just too busy. And I get followed everywhere too, it's crazy.
"It's a bit boring right now, it's my birthday and I'm not even going to do anything."
The British rapper also thanked his fans for helping him stay sane.
He said: "They put me where I am, so no matter what crazy s**t happens, I'm with them."
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
