People only get to see only what we show them, as artists. They don’t get to see the other side. The happy times, the pain, the tears, the loneliness, the fear and pain of losing someone you love and more. They don’t know how difficult it is to put a story to paper, turn it into a song and the give that piece of art, life. They don’t hear or see your struggle, because we’re taught to smile when camera lights are flashing. They don’t know about the story about the four times I’ve overdosed on a cocktail of nonsense. They don’t know about the struggle with drugs. The cocaine addiction. In the studio, cutting lines and getting high, just to numb your face so you can write. They don’t know about the times you’ve woken up with women you don’t know in your bed & so much more. They don’t know even a 0.1% of our lives.
We talk about our struggles and life through our art and how difficult it is to overcome. Every day is a battle. It’s mentally draining. But we do what we do to send a message, positivity, that you’re not alone, there is always someone willing to hear you out and help you. Us as artists, when we write, it’s raw, unfiltered, it mentally draining and damaging. If someone can relate, that’s great, but at the same time it really sucks to see so many romanticise a mental illness and make it trendy. It’s not. (Y’alls e boy/ e girl TikToks are cringy af. You bunch of virgins are just weird. You don’t know what goes in to make that art.)
Have you ever stood in front of a sea of faces, people screaming your name, yet you feel lonely and dead inside? But there is something beautiful behind the madness, it’s our normal.
You like Euphoria? That’s something like our reality & much more. Our reality makes that look like a Disney show. Our reality is a shit show. Welcome.
