Kid Cudi loves painting his nails and he has been spotted with different nail art over the years. The Grammy-winning rapper decided to paint his nails again and share the same on Instagram over the weekend. However, within an hour of the rapper posting a picture of his on the photo-sharing app, he started getting hate in the comments section.

With an intention to preserve his mental health, the 37-year-old rapper turned off the comments and posted a short note on Twitter asking people not to buy his albums or come to his shows if they don’t like him doing this. The Ohio native then quickly became the hot topic of discussion as his loyal fans came to his rescue while slamming the haters. For the unversed, celebrities like MGK, Lil Yachty, Harry Styles, ASAP Rocky, Bad Bunny and Jonathan Van Ness among others have been spotted wearing nail art on several occasions in public.

‘I got tired of blockin so many accounts’, says Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi shared a picture of him wearing ‘The Mandalorian’ mask while showing off his painted nails to his close to three million followers on Instagram. In the picture, we can see the award-winning hip-hop artist rocking a bright blue and bright orange nail color on different fingers. He captioned the picture as, “Mando Cud”. However, seeing a lot of hatred, Cudi decided to block several accounts but after getting tired of doing it, a frustrated Cudi ultimately turned off the comments.

Talking about the same, he took to his official Twitter account and said, “Turned my comments off on Instagram. Seems people really have a problem w me painting my nails.  I got tired of blockin so many accounts. I really need u to understand, if u dont like me doin this or anything I do, please dont buy my albums, dont come to my shows. F**k way off.” Cudi, who has been painting his nails for quite some time, had also shared a post on Twitter way back in 2014 where he had spoken on similar lines. “Oh, I painted my thumbnails becuz I think it looks raw. So theres that. Opinions not needed. I shine. All day. Do u.”

The ‘Day 'n' Nite’ hitmaker also made headlines in April 2021 when he donned a floral dress on ‘SNL’  in order to give a tribute to Kurt Cobain. He drew a lot of flak for the same but an unfazed Cudi later spoke on HBO Max’s ‘The Shop: Uninterrupted’ saying, “The image of seeing Kurt Cobain in a dress was very rock’n’roll to me,” he said. “That was cool. So I already made my mind up years ago that I wanted to do this. And it’s cool because I’m also giving confidence to the kids and telling them to be themselves and do what they want to do,” as reported by NME. He further said, “I’ve never been someone who’s like thinking about the backlash. I don’t give a f**k about what anyone thinks. You can’t when you’re doing this s**t. I knew it would piss some people off, but I love that. Because hip-hop is so weird about s**t.”




‘Salute you Cudi for being yourself no matter what’

The loyal fans of Cudi rushed to Twitter to slam the haters and spread positivity about being comfortable in their own skin. One fan questioned the rapper, “Do you prefer only the positivity in any form, or do you welcome critiques of any and every part of the publicized life that your prominent music has brought?” While another stated, “Instagram imo is the more negative social media. This is the least I’ve ever used it this year. You’re doing the right thing turning off comments. Protect your mental.”
One user stated, “Masculinity is about being confident in yourself, it does not matter if you wear a dress, paint your nails or wear a Gucci bucket hat. Is about being comfortable in your skin. I salute you cudi for being yourself No matter what. Huge inspiration.” Another added, “Keep doing you Scott. They are tasteless and have fragile masculinity. We love your nails.” The next one shared, “Dudes really be pressed over someone they don’t even know painting their nails smh.” One slammed the haters and tweeted, “I saw that you turned them off and was mad confused, don’t let them get you down cudi, your nails seriously looked great. love you.” Another concluded while voicing the same, “Painting my nails everyday now , f**k tha haters.”
