Post Malone fans are concerned about the “Circles” singer after videos of him stumbling, rolling his eyes and acting “weird” at recent shows surfaced online.
Several people who attended Malone’s current “Runaway” tour took to social media to post clips of the 24-year-old’s performances, and questioned whether his odd behavior was due to drug use.
“Guys please, Post Malone has been acting ‘weird’ on stage since a few weeks,” one person tweeted on Friday. “I’m not trying to assume anything, but he looks like he’s under drugs. So please, SPREAD THIS VIDEO. We lost too many artists over overdoses. I hope he’s gonna be okay.”
Another shared a video of the “Wow” singer cradling his microphone in his hands and waving with his eyes closed.
A third video circulating on social media shows Malone’s eyes rolling back as he performs his 2017 hit “Rockstar,” which features lyrics like, “I’ve been f—kin’ hoes and poppin’ pillies. Man, I feel just like a rockstar.”
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.
Earlier this 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.”
He also spoke to the magazine about his friendship with Mac Miller, who tragically died of an overdose in 2018.
In September, Malone opened up about the death of Lil Peep, another rapper who died of a drug overdose at just 21 years old.
According to Variety, he said, “I remember when Peep died and there was a bunch of shaming, like, on social media, like, ‘Oh these kids doing all their f—king drugs.’ At the same time you don’t know what someone is going through and you don’t know how easy it is just to get caught up in something to the point where you can’t stop. It’s not your fault.”
The rapper’s next show is scheduled for Monday at the Toyota Center in Houston.
