Breaking up in the public space

Our culture has really got it messed up. People sit behind their screens and they pretty much depend on other people’s downfalls to make themselves feel really good and I fed into that. I wanted to be validated. I wanted to voice my opinion and I wanted people to be on my side. And I really got caught up in that. And there was no growth from it and I felt really bad about all of it. If you look back now, it doesn’t look good. No one’s going to evolve from that.

And you don’t ever think my kid is going to be 20 one day and he’s going to see this stuff and his kids are going to see it. And no one thinks that far ahead. I had done tons of interviews, just running off at the mouth. I was living in the moment, I wasn’t thinking about the higher version of Mashonda.
