Post Malone’s life has undergone significant transformations, all of which are cause for celebration. Not only did the singer-rapper release his latest album, Twelve Carat Toothache, but he also gave birth to his first child with his newly revealed fiancée.
Malone recently completed a broad promotional tour to promote his new album, and he recently appeared on The Howard Stern Show to discuss his work and personal life, including his hardships. Posty revealed that he had hit rock bottom and that his drinking had gotten so bad that he didn’t think he’d make it.
“It was to a really rough point, and I couldn’t get up off the floor for weeks,” he explained. “It was screwdrivers, it was vodka and it was bodying fifths and trying to hang in there and talking to people who weren’t f*cking there.” Malone went on to say that he’s “responsible now” about his drinking and that he’s had “so much guidance” from celebrity buddies like Justin Bieber.
Post stated that he was “trapped” in his own harmful cycle, but he discovered that he needed to “do a lot less talking and a lot more listening” in order to make genuine changes in his life. His fiancée served as a sort of compass for him. Watch Post Malone tell his story in the video below.
