Odd Future frontman Tyler, The Creator has jumped back into the spotlight in a hurry, first by launching his first digital media platform Golf Media, then by announcing his new album Cherry Bomb and now, by unveiling some serious details about a nervous breakdown he experienced about four months ago. Tyler admitted he had realized that he was partially lonely and unsettled by the amount of good fortune he has experienced in his career. In his confusion, Tyler shared to interviewer Andrew “Noz” Nosnitsky that the only two friends he felt comfortable reaching out to were his pal Earl Sweatshirt and Andre 3000. Check out the full interview on his app and watch for the release of Cherry Bomb on April 13.

The only thing that’s sad is the fact that my mansion is empty. My sister lives in Utah, my mom’s always in Sacramento and I’m always sleeping on a friend’s couch out here. I went home the other day to grab something and I walk in the fucking house and it’s no one home. It’s six rooms, no one there. That bummed me out so bad. Oh and my bed is too soft. Those are my only complaints. What the fuck? I had a mental breakdown like four months ago for a couple hours. I was sitting there just fully losing my mind.

I was too happy! I know it sounds crazy but I was sitting there at 2 in the morning thinking about how my life is too good right now. I can buy anything I want, I can wake up and do whatever I want. I was like okay something bad has to happen. Someone is gonna die soon, I’m gonna break an arm. I wasn’t sad, I think I was panicking.

The only people I talked to about it was Thebe and Andre 3000. Andre was just like [in an Andre voice] “hey man that’s just how it goes man you just in a good spot.” Then I talked to Thebe about it and whoa… did he go left field. I remember texting him like “life is cool but the fucking cameras, I don’t know if people like me or they just want a photo for me for their instagram. am i a pawn? am i just an object that they use me for? when they ask me for photos do they actually give a fuck about Tyler? Or do they just want a couple likes? Is it just like taking a picture next to a car for them?”

I forget what he said but he got so weird about it. That made me snap out of it like “Yo Thebe dog, are you okay?”
