Post Malone is clearing the air and clarifying that, despite the speculation, he has “never felt healthier!”
The “Rockstar” rapper took to Instagram on Thursday evening and shared a selfie from Antwerp, Belgium. He swiftly acknowledged, “I wanted to say that I’m not doing drugs.”
“Hello everybody, I hope you’re having a great night. I wanted to say that I’m not doing drugs.”
Post Malone added, “I’ve had a lot of people ask me about my weight loss and I’d suppose, performance on stage.”
However, he assured fans that he “has never felt healthier” and is merely “having a lot of fun performing.”
Additionally, Malone credited “dad life” as positively impacting his lifestyle, as he welcomed a daughter last year. After all, he wants to “be around for a long time for [his] little angel.”
“I guess dad life kicked in and I decided to kick soda and start eating better so I can be around for a long time for this little angel. Next up is smokes and brews, but I like to consider myself a patient man… lol!”
He then acknowledged that he’s been hittin’ the studio lately and is “excited to share” new music before stating that he’s “in a super dope place.”
“My brain is in a super dope place, and I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time.”
The artist wrapped his message up by writing, “Goodnight nerds. Spread love and rock on.”
The Speculation Was Sparked By Viral Videos Of The Rapper Performing
It’s important to note that Post Malone’s commentary isn’t coming out of the blue.
Last year, shortly after taking an on-stage tumble, a video of Malone vibing during a performance began to catch some attention. However, most people focused on him bouncing back from his fall.
Eventually, after additional performances showed a slimmed-down Post Malone exhibiting similar behavior, people began to speculate about his health.
