I believe Tupac had some bi-polar, maybe some schizophrenia. Maybe he had both…Especially after he got shot. He said some crazy things and he always seemed to be in a bad mood when he wasn’t drinking or whatever. Always talking about paranoia, calling himself black jesus. And stuff.
I also believe biggie had bad depression…always talking about wanting to die. He never seemed to be in a good mood.
Exactly what I was going to state. If you can manage that much public life or work you’re not truly fitting the definition of mentally “ill”.
My illness leaves me bed-ridden all day and I only go out twice per week - once to see a therapist and once to shop for groceries. I don’t have motivations and high-minded aspirations like normal people do, but these celebrities have time to travel all over the country, act in front of others, and do a whole broad range of other things.
I understand they might have mood disorders, but I don’t count mood disorders as mental disorders or illnesses.
He seems to cycle through phases of grandiose thinking (which everyone likes to mock and then feel satisfied that they know everything there is to know about him) and self-loathing (which everyone likes to ignore or chalk up to him “deserving” it). Which is a bit more complicated than him just being an ass, though he certainly behaves that way not infrequently.
I’d agree with you on the presidential bid. I thought that the idea that everyone had probably guessed that he was going to run was even odder.
Ahahaha I think it’s more than simple narcissism. He’s had too many episodes where all he talks about is what a jerk he is. Even his music: 808s, MBDTF and Yeezus in particular are laced with self-hatred. Jay might be a straight up narcissist (assuming it’s not just the posture that sells records.) Ye is messier.
