"Them tight -ss jeans with his old -ss," a third social media citizen noted, while a fourth asked, "Why did he jump down like that tho???" and a fifth commented, "His foot got caught on the edge of the stage with a net he couldn't see from his angle."

Before the fall, The Blast reported that Cudi had gotten fans' attention by alluding to an impending exit from the music industry. 

Speaking on it during an October 2022 appearance on First We Feast's "Hot Ones," the "Pursuit of Happiness" performer said:

"I just don't know if I wanna do music, drop albums for too much longer, you know? I'm kind of nearing the end on all things Kid Cudi, I think." 

Despite that, Cudi was quick to hint that he was not throwing in the towel just yet as he was "really curious to see what else" he could still accomplish in the music industry.

Some fans promptly took the declaration to mean that the Cleveland native still wanted to create more albums or even work on a few collaborations with other musicians.

Later in July 2023, Cudi slammed his homophobic followers for questioning his sexuality based on his appearance. The Blast observed that the drama began after the "Need for Speed" actor shared a snapshot of himself smiling on Instagram. 

Unfortunately, the innocuous post led critics to make unfounded claims about his sexuality. Without wasting any time, he took to X, to address the issues, typing:

"You know what's crazy, and makes me question the world we live in, is when I post a picture of me smiling on it and there are mad comments questioning my sexuality flooding my page with insults."

After pointing out that he felt "terrible" for the critics, Cudi concluded, "It's sad out here. A man can't even smile and be happy anymore. SMH."

As expected, fans jumped into the replies to air their thoughts about the producer's rant. The real highlight came when one person stated, "I'm sorry it got to you, Cudi. I'm sad you think it's a diss," and the Grammy Award winner typed a lengthy response, which began:

"It's more the ignorance; Im not insulted. It's just sad to see people so lame; it's sad someone, a man, cant show joy without there being some conversation about their sexuality."

He emphasized that even though he was not insulted by the comments it was "just sad to see people so lame; it's sad someone, a man, can't show joy without there being some conversation about their sexuality."

Cudi went even deeper, reflecting on the kind of childhood he had with his strict father. He shared:

"When I was a lil boy, my dad was super militant. He never liked us playing around most of the time. He was very strict. It's almost like being silly was a sign of weakness to him." 

Ultimately, that experience made him promise himself that nobody not even his father would "dim my light."
