I follow Chipmunk on Twitter and read his ‘suicidal’ tweets. I didn’t think he was being serious. I thought he was being overly dramatic for the sake of it. Artists will say/do anything these days to generate publicity for themselves.
But I guess in his case I was wrong …

Chipmunk has cancelled all upcoming promotional appearances after “working too hard”.
The 18-year-old, who topped the singles chart last month with Oopsy Daisy, posted a message on Twitter claiming that he wanted to kill himself.
“I wanna die,” he wrote, later adding: “Is suicide easy?”
The rapper pulled out of the Modern Warfare 2 video game launch and the Tweets have since been removed.
A statement from his spokesperson reads: “Chipmunk has been working incredibly hard, which has taken its toll.
“Management have agreed to cancel all upcoming appearances to give him some much-needed time off.”
His latest post reads: “This has been the most difficult time for me… But I will get through it! Believe none of what you hear… And half of what you see!”
‘Mainstream’ success arrived at Chipmunk’s door earlier this year and he’s already suffering from some form of a breakdown.
That didn’t take long!
Get well soon Chipmunk.
