Bow Wow [real name Shad Moss] is a young, handsome and famous rapper who hit the limelight at an early age, and just like any other celebrity kid, he found it hard to move on with life at one point that he contemplated ending his life.
The 29-year-old spoke with VLAD TV about his career, love and life.

Bow Weezy reveals in a recent interview that his life isn’t all about the money and fame. He admits that achieving almost everything he had desired–luxury cars, gold chains, diamond rings, cribs and even women–wasn’t enough to take away dark moments in his life.
One might wonder how it started and ended for this boyish-looking musician.
Well, his reasons for wanting to commit suicide are likely to provoke a variety of reactions; disgust, sympathy and perhaps, surprise.
Bow Wow explained in the interview with VLAD TV that he felt close to the edge after doing “everything” at the peak of his career.
Stardom could feel like a prison when one gets to the peak too soon. Enjoying “everything” in his context means having carefree sex or simply–as he put it, “smashing every girl there is to smash”.
“Let me start off by saying i love my fans. With out yall i wudda been left the game.
“For the past 3 years i been batteling life. Even thought about taking my own. I felt like as a kid i did everything and saw everything too fast which spoiled my adult years.
“I felt as if i had no purpose to live(Thinking selfishly) until god gave me the illest gift of my life. No lambo, no blk card nuffn ammounts to my lil girl.
“I waited so long to tell yall the truth because i was nervous on how yall would look at me. Yall know everyone makes a big deal out of everything i do. I wanted to be 1st n let yall know the real.”
His letter revealed for the first time in 2011, that he has a secret lovechild. He was 24 at the time of this revelation as reconfirmed in his latest interview.
“My lil girl is getting BIG fast. i love every minute of it. She inspires me to go harder. Even made me treat my mother better, its like it made me into a man over night. Never been a fan of posting pix of my daughter. Reason is because i want my boo boo to have everything i didn’t.
“Want her to be able to cheerlead with her lil friends with out some asshole sticking his camera all in my lil girl face. I know how fame is. I missed out on so much that i now know how important it is to cherish and have those things in your life.
“Yes! I change diapers. Aint as bad as i thought hahaha. I want her to live with me so bad. Jus us 2. Thats my dream man but fellas yall know how it go. Baby gotta stay with they momma and all dat bull. I hate that! So i have to fly 5 hrs away to see her.
“I find myself going into my i phone book jus lookn at pix of her. Sometimes i tear up cuz i just cant believe it brotha be emotional. All in all im good. This is my 1st.
“I know all my fans gone support me and ride for her like yall been doin my whole career.
