I saw the video of Post Malone addressing his drug & alcohol abuse and when he said he doesn't use drugs the only thing that crossed my mind was that's exactly what a drug addict would say 🥴😂— Cherie 💋 (@mericanmademama) March 8, 2020
"Anybody that's concerned here I appreciate the love and support, but I feel f—ing fantastic," the "Circles" singer concluded his statement.
Malone is currently in the midst of a national tour, which hits Denver, Colorado on Thursday.
