MEMPHIS, TN – Post Malone shot down allegations he’s been abusing drugs during a show in Memphis, Tennessee on Friday night (March 6). At one point during his performance, the chart-topping artist addressed rumors he’s struggling with addiction and mental health, rumors that made him a trending topic on Twitter earlier this week.
“People are asking me if I’m ok or on heavy drugs or anything like that,” he told the crowd. “I’m not on drugs and I feel the best I’ve ever fucking felt in my life,” he said. “And that’s why I bust my ass for these shows, fall on the floor and do all that fun shit. But for anybody that’s concerned, I appreciate the love and support, but I feel fucking fantastic and I’m not going anywhere.”
The internet chatter started on Thursday (March 5) when the videos of Post began to circulate. A Twitter user by the name of Olivia Truesdale shared a compilation video of Post appearing to be under the influence.
“You can’t sit there and tell me that this is normal behaviour from Post,” she wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “it’s not and the man needs help before something bad happens to him. Whether it’s alcohol or drugs, he’s not using them for fun anymore, he’s abusing them. it’s too much now, people are worried.”
