Kid Cudi has issued a strong message to those criticizing her choice of painting her nails.
The rapper, who has displayed non-conforming gender aesthetics in the past, said he was forced to disable Instagram comments on a post depicting him in a biking helmet and polishing his nails.
Cudi took to Twitter last night (July 17) to explain why she decided to stop the negativity.
“Turned off my comments on Instagram,” he began in the tweet. “Guess people really have a problem painting my nails. I’m tired of blocking so many accounts. I really need you to understand, if you don’t like me doing this or If you do anything, please don’t buy my albums, don’t come to my shows. Fuck you.”
Kicked off my comments on Instagram. Looks like people really have a problem painting my nails. I’m tired of blocking so many accounts. I really need you to understand, if you don’t like me doing this or anything, please don’t buy my albums, don’t come to my shows. go to hell.

Cudi wore a dress during her appearance SNL in April. After receiving some backlash, he explained that he didn’t care: “I wanna be a disruptor, I wanna fuck”, he told HBO Max. Shop: Seamless.
He explained Kurt Cobain’s influence on his costume choice. “The image of seeing Kurt Cobain in a dress was very rock’nole to me,” he said. “It was cool. So I made up my mind years ago that I wanted to do this. And it’s good because I’m also giving the kids confidence and telling them to be themselves and do what they want to do.” Do that.”
The rapper continued: “I’ve never been the kind of person who likes to think about Backlash. I don’t give a crap about what anyone thinks. You can’t when you’re doing this shit. I knew it would offend some people, but I like that. Because hip-hop is so weird about crap.
Elsewhere, last month Cudi spoke out about mental health. “Sadness sometimes eats me up,” he said in an Instagram post. “How do I behave? A lot of you hit me up and ask how I got through. Idk to be honest. Some days are great, others are not so great. I just try to believe that God has my hands on me.” There’s something better.”
