Post Malone has addressed his bizarre stage antics that have caused concern among fans fearing he was possibly using drugs.
During a show at the FedEx Forum in Memphis on Friday night, Post took a minute to clear the air around the unsettling videos that surfaced recently. "I'm not on drugs and I feel the best I've ever fuckin' felt in my whole life," he proclaimed. "And that's why I bust my ass for these shows and fuckin' fall on the floor and do all that fun shit."
He then goes on to express his appreciation for the people who are looking out for him, reassuring them that he's staying away from drugs. "But for anybody that's concerned here I appreciate the love and the support," he said. "But I feel fuckin' fantastic and I'm not doing drugs."
Posty was responding to a series of videos showing the Dallas artist acting out of control on stage. In one clip his eyes are rolling back into his head while he screams the lyrics to his hit song "Rockstar."
In another, he's crawling around on stage and struggling to get to his feet. In a third, he looks super out of it and nearly cries as he tightly holds a microphone with two hands.
In a recent interview with GQ Style, Post discussed the string of artists who have passed away far too soon due to overdoses, including his friend Mac Miller. “That could have been me,” he recalled. Earlier in the piece, however, he mentions that he doesn’t consume anything stronger than alcohol these days.
He's currently on the second leg of his massive Runaway Tour in support of his latest record, Hollywood's Bleeding. Shout out to White Iverson for attacking the negative rumors head-on and easing fans' worries. 💯
