What do you think about people who has this kind of attitude?
Example: Eminem, Johnny Knoxville, Steve O, Kurt Cobain, Taylor Momsen, Julliette Lewis, P! nk, Lady Gaga, nd many more...
i think that kind of people is the best, I live when people just don't give a fuck and just let everything flow. Isn't it amazing? To never care about what people think? Those guys are my idols, my role models lol

I can only speak for Kurt Cobain because I don't know the others well enough. As for Cobain, you're very wrong to assume that he just "didn't give a fuck" as you phrased it. Instead, Cobain's attitude has a lot to do with the youth culture of the 1980s. Unfortunately, you're way too young to know this ;-). So you need to read up on it a bit. The 1980s was also where the original, "real" punks came into existence. The punk subculture is many ways tied to Kurt Cobain's Grunge music and Grunge was in fact also quite heavily influenced by Punk music (and mentality). It's hard to put the attitude of these youth cultures into a nutshell but if you want to have it in one single word, it would probably be "disillusionment". Many people who were growing up in the 1980s were very disillusioned and frustrated about politics and society. It would be wrong to assume that they were simply indifferent. Many punks for example were in fact very political and in some cases well-educated. Cobain (though not a punk himself) is actually a good example for this. Cobain wasn't just some hillbilly who was like "oh fuck everything and everyone". He was a very smart and thoughtful person and I believe he had to say a lot about human nature. But he was also frustrated and perhaps sort of fatalistic about the state of the world and things. That's not the same thing as indifference.4

I think Kurt Cobain was a hecka sensitive guy, hence why he committed suicide, so i'm gonna have to disagree with you there. He is awesome though. I don't really know enough about the others to say, but i'm not sure that I really admire a person who pretends they don't care about anything when I believe that the most powerful form of strength lies in vulnerability. What I do love about these people is that they are relentlessly themselves at all times and embrace who they are without reservation/inhibition.1
