The Kid Laroi Says He Doesn’t Have ‘Time to Be a Lost Teenager’ in ‘Kids Are Growing Up’ Film Preview

The Kid Laroi gets vulnerable in his upcoming Prime Video documentary Kids Are Growing Up: A Story About A Kid Named Laroi, and in a new clip shared exclusively with Billboard, the 20-year-old Australian star opens up about his current mental health state as he navigates the beginning of adulthood.

“Maybe I’m just feeling lost. Maybe I’m just going through what maybe most people my age go through,” he says in the clip. “I guess the difference is that this is the time for people to figure out what they want to do in life. I already know what I’m doing in life. I have a job, a family and a lot of people I support and stuff like that, so I don’t really have time to be a lost teenager. I’m just lost with a job.”


Directed by Michael Ratner, the documentary takes viewers on a journey following The Kid Laroi — born Charlton Howard — and how he deals with fame amid the massive commercial success of his Justin Bieber collaboration “Stay” leading into his The First Time debut album, which arrived in November and included the singles “Love Again” and “Too Much” with Jung Kook and Central Cee.

Prime Video is celebrating the doc’s arrival by hosting an interactive screening watch party and live Q&A between fans and The Kid Laroi from his home in Los Angeles on Wednesday at 4 p.m. PT. The full film hits Prime Video on Thursday.
