Kid Cudi delivered a stern message to critics of his nail polish choice.
rap reader, someone who has shown an aesthetic that is not gender-conforming in the past, said he felt compelled to disable Instagram comments on a post that featured him wearing a bicycle helmet and brushing his nails.
Cudi took to Twitter last night (July 17) to explain why he decided to block negative.
“Disabled my comments on instagram,” he began in the tweet. “It seems like people really have a problem when I paint my nails. I’m tired of so many blocked accounts. I really need you to understand, if you don’t like me doing this or whatever I do, please don’t buy my albums, don’t come to my concerts. Damned. “
Turned off my comments on instagram. Looks like people really have a problem when I paint my nails. I’m tired of so many blocked accounts. I really need you to understand, if you don’t like me doing this or whatever I do, please don’t buy my albums, don’t come to my concerts. Damn it.

Cudi wore a dress during his appearance on SNL in April. After receiving some backlash, he explained that he didn’t care: “I want to be a troublemaker, I want to fuck” he said HBO Max‘S Store: Uninterrupted.
He continued to explain Kurt Cobaininfluence his choice of clothing. He said: “The sight of seeing Kurt Cobain in a dress got me excited. “That’s great. So I decided years ago that I wanted to do this. And it’s great because I’m also instilling confidence in the kids and telling them to be themselves and do what they want to do. “
The rapper continued, “I’ve never been one to think about backlash. I don’t care what people think. You can’t when you’re doing this. I know it’s going to piss some people off, but I like it. Because hip-hop is so weird about crap.
Elsewhere, last month Cudi talks about mental health. He said in an Instagram post: “Sometimes, sadness eats away at me. “How should I cope? A lot of u hit me and asked how i got over it. Honestly, idk. Some days are great, others not so great. I just try to believe that God has something better for me.”
