The-Dream On His Divorce:

The-Dream claims that his highly-publicized divorce from actress/singer Christina Milian had a profound effect on his music. Never known for being the deepest songwriter, he says that the pain fueled his art and gave his sound more emotion and range.

"Itâs just allowed me to be more real," he says. "Iâd rather be the bad guy than anybody else be the bad girl because I can handle it. Itâs a bad thing that two people can break up, but the truth of the matter is that it happens all the time for different reasons. But whatâs wrong with a public breakup is that they never really know the truth. And I wonât be the person who says it. Iâm not going to be that type. If something breaks, itâs not something to celebrate.â

The singer-songwriter also addressed having suicidal thoughts following the end of his marriage.

âI think it was just how my mind works," he revealed. "You have so many things rushing through your mind and I was trying to figure out how to make it stop. Itâs easy to look at someone and say thereâs 80,000 different ways for you to deal with it. No. Maybe for you, but me having to one, be in control of every aspect of my life and two, loving people how I do and being so thoughtful⦠when certain things are out of control, if itâs the type of personality that I have, you start to lean towards the best way to make it end. Like what stops this for not only me, but everyone?â
