Kid Cudi penned a heartfelt letter to fans and the public on his Facebook page discussing his depression and his ultimate decision to get help. While most people showed support, there were of course a few people telling him to toughen up. Though awareness on mental health issues continues to grow in our society some people still don't get it. So do your damn Googles. 

Ben and Jerry’s released an eloquent statement on their support for Black Lives Matter but of course people had to wild out. While nothing they said was new or shocking or otherwise, some people took it poorly. To say the least.

Roger Goodell, the Tyrannical and the NFL are gonna start fining teams for posting non approved content on social media as a response to declining primetime viewership. Because that makes sense?!

ASAP Rocky is the newly appointed Creative head of MTV Labs. He's getting busy teasing this promo including Lil' Uzi Vert and vintage labs themes

Thank you sprite for ruining Minnesota’s best anthem and halloween costumes all around the world with this bizarre commercial featuring LeBron James and Lil' Yachty.
