Post Malone wants fans to know that, despite rumors to the contrary, he’s not doing drugs.
Several viral videos recently appeared to show Posty behaving oddly onstage, with one fan commenting, “Bro is f**ked up on the drugs man; don’t let post malone die too.” Another posted a video of the artist singing while his eyes appeared to be rolling back into his head, and wrote, “look at this video 🙁 I’m worried and I’m not even a fan.”
Days after the videos went viral, Post addressed the rumors at a concert in Memphis. In footage captured by a fan, he can be heard saying, “I’m not on drugs. I feel the best I’ve ever f****in’ felt in my life. And that’s why I can bust my a** for these shows and f***in’ fall on the floor and do all that fun s**t.” He continued, “For anybody that’s concerned here, I appreciate the love and the support, but I feel f***in’ fantastic and I’m not doing drugs.”
Last May, Malone launched his own marijuana business called Shaboink, according to TMZ, but it is unclear whether he has dabbled in other drugs like his songs suggest.
Last week, the singer told GQ he quit smoking marijuana after a “pot-induced anxiety attack” and said he now likes to consume “nothing stronger than alcohol.”
