Will-i-am thanks ADHD for his success

It is known that Will.i.am, who is currently judging The Voice UK, pulled his family out of poverty and made his dreams a reality. During a recent interview with TheSun.co.uk, the rapper said, “Every person I know, who’s a little ‘off’, is the most creative. Their hyperactivity means they’re capable of taking on a bunch of things at once. Thank God my mum never put me on anti-hyperactivity drugs.”

He added, “I’ve learned how to work the ‘H’ in ADHD to my benefit. I can work longer hours than anyone on this planet. It so happens that my work is around creativity so I can go and go and go. I could work 20-hour days.”

About the time he suffered from depression, and he says, “I don’t like to talk about that kind of stuff. Some people, when they talk about it, they are induced. Just the idea of thinking about it can bring on an episode.”

Talking of how his mother has been a constant support, he said, “Gangs, guns, warring between the gangs, cops warring with the gangs, cops shooting kids, kids shooting cops. It was bad. But my mum kept us safe.”
