Bow Wow Clarifies Allegedly Suicidal Tweets

Reflecting on how the entertainment game has affected him, Bow Wow says, "I'm unbalanced because I've only seen one side of life."

In November, recent Cash Money signee Bow Wow published a series of messages to his Twitter feed that had fans and casual observers wondering if he was contemplating suicide. During a recent interview with Angie Ange of WKYS 93.9 FM, Bow Wow addressed his Twitter rant and clarified what he meant by the messages.

I swear i be wishing i was dead sometimes. Because i feel like that's the only way ill get peace.less than a minute ago via web

People don't know me man. Yall don't ... start looking at Shad. Not Bow wow. Fuck Bow. I go through shit daily. I'm Just like yallless than a minute ago via web

I sacrificed my life for this Hip Hop shit. I put my "REAL" life on hold. If i could do it over.... I wudda went to school. Got me a reg jobless than a minute ago via web

“All I know is the business,” he said. “I ain’t had time to play football and do the regular stuff. At times it haunts you. Of course you’re going to be unbalanced. How can you have balance in life if you haven’t seen the other side of life? I’m unbalanced because I’ve only seen one side of life. It’s not by choice, but that’s the way it is.”

Drawing parallels to the movie Richie Rich, Bow Wow stressed the fact that he is a “regular person” and shared anecdotes such as shopping at Target. His Twitter feed was inactive for a while after the aforementioned Twitter rant, and he thanked his fans for supporting him as well as fellow rapper Game, who gave him some advice. As for the more cryptic messages, Bow Wow and Ange chalked them up to misunderstood statements.

“I didn’t really mean it like, ‘I’m about to kill myself,’” Bow Wow added. “But I wonder, ‘When will I get peace? I guess the only way I’ll get it is when I’m dead.’”

    its the demon inside of him that whats him to commit suicide.... when he gets rid of that demon 'bow wow' than maybe he can get some peace being Shad

  • anonymous

    You people are absolutely ridiculous! Why are you all in his shit calling him names when you dont even know the man... WTF has he ever done to you people to get this type of hate? All he has done was made good music and movies for us to enjoy. When people hate it's just a sign of jealously and envy because he has accomplished things that you may never attain in life. It's sad because I should be the one bitch talking since i'm a female, but you GUYS are showing me how bitch made the men of today are by your statements..

  • Desu-Ops

    Lemme just say this: Bow Wow does have a point. Growing up as a child star, he probably never had a chance to be the regular ol nigga you see around you. All he knows is fame, stardom, and this balla shit. Eventually, you get tired of it, and want something simple, a regular life. That doesn't excuse the fact he's a conceited, arrogant asshole who the industry looks at as a fucking joke.

  • timtyt adms

    Side Note: Jermaine Dupri probably Chris Stokes'd his ass. Bow Wow is mad because he got buttraped....smh

  • Beasley

    Rich or Poor, famous or regular dude, the only way to truly find peace is to be at peace within yourself. Meditate and get knowledge of self and you will be at peace brother.

    I swear i be wishing i was dead sometimes. Because i feel like that's the only way ill get away from these illiterate rappers.

    Man, leave the guy alone. All of you kids wanna be the next Gay-Z. But I bet back in the day every body wanted to be like Mike Jackson to, so goes to show you, you don't who these people are in the first place.

  • Anonymous

    lol you retards have no clue about anything. Same shit with Michael Jackson, he never got to have a life. Not that great living just on that side of the game.

  • YouAllAreIdiots

    TUPAC FELT THE SAME WAY. None of us know what it's like to live that lifestyle- you can't assume just because he has money, his life is easy. If he's ungrateful, say the same thing about Pac.

    • Anonymous

      Pac was an overrated dramaqueen too

    • Enlightened

      Except Pac didn't get famous until he was grown. You have to compare Bow Wow more like to some Gary Coleman shit. Pac got a chance to go to regular schools, act in plays, and grow like a normal human being. Bow is one of the few true "child stars" we had in hip-hop and you see how most of the regular child stars' lives turned out.

    GO KILL YOURSELF FAGGOT! WE'LL BE CHEERING! HAHHAHHAA

  • FUCKBOWWOW

    FUCK BOW WOW musta been listening to too much biggie

  • Donnell Robertson

    Excuse me but it's real i must say this...Ya'll are some idiots, selfish son of guns! Bow Wow never really had time to do things like other kids..And him with the suicidal tweets, that's normal for someone to feel that way! He shouldn't put it on his tweets but talk to someone about it. I feel bad for him alittle, ya'll shouldn't say BS like that man. Even if you DID have the money, cars, clothes and stuff..you'll began to realize you miss something..a childhood. Get ya'll fact's straight before making fun of a good artist! I don't like Bow Wow's music but i respect him as a person! That's coming straight from the heart!

    Tell this crybaby to go and use his celebrity for something useful other than tweeting about himself then. You got two wars going on longer than any other american war in history but nobody gives a shit. You got politicians shutting down inner city schools and tearing down projects left and right...Less and less jobs in america. Most of the towns outside of big cities look like 3rd world countries now...and this guy just wants to be regular. Stop whining and become something more than a bow wow.

  • B

    uhh..... when greenlight came out he was aight, but now that hes in young money nothing goods gonna come of him..... smh he had potential

  • amber rowland

    IREALLY WISH THAT THINGS GO WELL WITH SHAD BECAUSE WHEN I WAS ON FACEBOOK AND I SEEN HIM WRITING THESE COMMENTS I HAD TO TELL HIM TO NOT SAY THINGS LIKE THAT AND THAT EVERYTHING WOULD BE OK I SENT HIM MESSAGES BUT NO RESPONSE BUT IF HE HAD READ HIS MESSAGES THEN HE KNOW THERE IS PEOPLE OUT HERE THAT WANT TO KNOW SHAD MOSS. I AM A FAN OF BOW WOW I HAVE BEEN FOR YEARS. I HOPE THAT HE CAN GET BETTER AND PRAY TO GOD THAT HE COULD WATCH OVER HIM AND GIVE HIM THE STRENGTH TO PULL THROUGH THIS.

    Im unbalanced too because I havent seen what its like to be a spoiled little rich kid who didnt have to work for anything in their lives. boo hoo

    • Anonymous

      @Balloon brain If by BK you mean owning my own restaurant and 4 roomates you mean my g/f and 2 kids your right on point. Bow Wow hasnt had to "work" a real day in his life. Sitting around in a music studio is far from "working", having TI write your lyrics is far from "working", having Jadakiss write your lyrics is far from "working". Grow up you pathetic piece of trash and stop trying to result to pathetic racial terms because you cant come up with an intelligent response, but not like much intelligence is expected from a site like this.

    • Anonymous

      Yeah I agree, nothing wrong with Bow Wow. He's just explaining that he is having a hard time. Money's not everything it's not a 365 day a year music video. Maybe shit is more complex than rich or poor

    • deuce

      WTF are both of yall talking about, two dumb ass dudes speaking bullshit. So this man is not allowed to be mad that he grew up rich, not everyone wants to grow up in the spotlight like that,trust me if u had ur 15 minutes of fame u probably wouldnt be able to handle it, look at how many celebs are fucking up there lives cuz of the type of life they have. I think people should always try to look at the other person and try to see where he is coming from. Im not a Bow Wow fan or anything, but i think i understand what he is trying to say.

      lol u kno what im saying hes crying n shit most of us without the money dont be like im unbalanced cuzz i need to live the other half!! thats summ dumb ass shit he should of just killed him self fuck him crying lil bitch!!

    In that case, quit rapping for awhile and live life--you have the f*cking money to do it! This sh*t right here annoys me. There are millions of real people in this world who go through FAR worse to survive every single day, and this fool is crying because he wants to be normal for 5 minutes..I don't feel sympathy for millionaires.

    • Anonymous

      Yeah these people talk like money is the end all be all. Like someone doesn't have the right to feel a certain way because they have money in their pocket. Answers to lifes questions don't come from buying an I-pod or a Tiger Woods escort. Maybe they can buy food and shelter, but that's about as far is it goes in terms of helping to gain ones stability. People are too phased with getting rich.

    • Kalin Maurice Leonard

      Why do u people think more money means less stress. You have zero clue what his life is like. Why are you judging someone when you haven't walked in their shoes. Life is hard for everyone even rich people.

    • call me li

      yall aint lived his life. you don't know the stresses he has or doesn't have. Everybody needs to find that balance. fall back off him

    • BraveHeart

      Too true mayne. He mite of HAD a struugle wen he was younger but he could retire now and NEVER have to work again, fucking mardy bastard!

  • Well...

    "I wudda went to school. Got me a reg job". In that case, with all the money you got now, GO TO SCHOOL AND GET YOU A DEGREE! YOUR RAP CAREER AIN'T GOIN NOWHERE!
