YUNGBLUD is getting real with what he sees in the mirror's reflection.
The “Parents” singer was the most-recent guest to participate in the UK's Capital FM's “Reflections” series on YouTube and things got honest.
While YUNGBLUD has never been one to shy away from talking about difficult personal topics, the alt rocker opened up a bit more about his ADHD diagnosis and how it impacted him making friends when he was younger.
“I hated my ADHD, I hated that part about me,” he said. “I hated that people didn't like me because I was too energetic or I said too many things that they didn't want to hear.”
He goes on to say that since he found his fans, “I love my ADHD.”
“Maybe I figured out my mental health issues weren't a handicap, they were kind of a thing that brought me and you [the fans] together,” he explained. “The way I was born and the way I didn't like the things about myself might actually be the best thing that ever happened to me 'cause I got to find ya.”
He's previously explained that his new album is very-much inspired by his dedicated fanbase and stories he's been told by fans.
