Big Sean Shares How Therapy Helped Him Find Clarity

Big Sean has reached a new point in his life and career that provided a much-needed moment of clarity. The Detroit native shared personal news on Instagram that he sought therapy in order to re-center his focus. The revelation arrived a day before his 31st birthday (March 25).

In a trio of Instagram video messages, the "One Man Can Change The World" rapper explained his stance and what he was missing from his life that led him to contract professional assistance. "I got a good therapist," he said. "I was blessed enough to talk to some super spiritual people, and they made me realize one thing that I was missing in my life, one thing I was missing was clarity...clarity about who was around me, what I was doing. Even the music which is my happiness, my joy, that was always an escape for me, was starting to feel like a burden. It was starting to feel like a job."

In a previous interview with Billboard, Big Sean revealed his battle with not only depression but also anxiety. "I never really took the time out to nurture myself, to take care of myself. It took me a lot of depression having a lot of anxiety to realize something was off," he said. "I've been getting myself together, getting my mind right, so I have been taking better care of myself," he continued before stating he was working on music.

That sentiment was echoed in Sean's recent revelation, assuring fans that he's still nurturing his passion for music. The last full-length project, Double or Nothing with producer Metro Boomin, was released in 2017.

T.I. Grills Candace Owens On Trump's 'MAGA' Slogan At The Revolt Summit

T.I. had one pressing question for Candace Owens during the 2019 Revolt summit that Owens couldn't quite answer. The two-day conference held in Atlanta brought together music executives, activists, and entertainers to discuss hip-hop, it's power, the current climate of the genre and to network. However, with the 2020 presidential elections nearing politics were also a hot topic.

For Saturday's (Sept. 14) Hip Hop and Politics panel hosted by Jeff Johnson, T.I. asked the conservative commentator to explain Donald Trump's campaign slogan. "When you say Make America Great Again, which period are we talking about?" Tip questioned. "[Is it] the period when women couldn't vote? The period when we were hanging from trees? The crack era? Which period in America are you trying to make great again."

The 30-year-old Connecticut native said: "I actually think that I would totally rock a hat right now that says Make Black America Great Again," which prompted T.I. to interject and restate the original question.

"Which period was America great that we're trying to replicate? Which era was it? Tell me." T.I. questioned. With an excited audience, Owens' attempt to explain Trump's slogan didn't go so well.

Felicity Huffman Sentenced To 14 Days In Prison For College Admissions Scandal

Felicity Huffman was sentenced Friday afternoon (Sept. 13) to 14 days in prison, CNN reports. Judge Indira Talwani also tacked a $30,000 fine and 250 hours of community service onto Huffman's sentence. Additionally, she faces one year of supervised release.

“I am deeply ashamed of what I have done,” Huffman reportedly said to the judge. “At the end of the day I had a choice to make. I could have said 'no.'”

The 56-year-old also shared a conversation she had with her daughter concerning the college admission scandal. Huffman revealed that her daughter said, “I don’t know who you are anymore mom? Why didn’t you think I could do it on my own?” Huffman's child with actor William H. Macy has a learning disability, which prompted Huffman to engage in the scam in an effort to allot more time for her to take the SATs.

“I felt an urgency which built to a sense of panic that there was this huge obstacle in the way that needed to be fixed for my daughter’s sake,” she wrote in a previous statement. “As warped as this sounds now, I honestly began to feel that maybe I would be a bad mother if I didn’t do what Mr. Singer was suggesting.”

Huffman will report to prison in six weeks. In April 2019, the actress pled guilty to paying $15,000 to William "Rick" Singer to increase her daughter's SAT scores.

Further details for this story are pending.
