Post Malone reveals a lot in his Rolling Stone story.
Post Malone's been winning throughout 2017. The singer's made bigger waves through the year and is now gearing up to deliver his forthcoming, Beerbongs & Bentley's album. With a number one single and turning into a household name, he recently caught up with Rolling Stone for a profile article. The piece provides insight to Post's life aside from the fame. A particularly interesting part of the article is when Post is asked about his relationship with Justin Bieber.
Post Malone and Justin Bieber relationship stems back to around the time "White Iverson" initially dropped. Bieber later brought him out on the "Purpose" tour across North America and they've been close ever since. However, Post did reveal that Justin Bieber's changed a bit since joining the mega-church, Hillsong. He told them that Bieber's been a bit "culty" since joining them and even estimated that he gave the church $10 million so far.
When I ask Malone about Bieber, he calls him “a fucking awesome, great dude” and “a genuine friend.” He adds, “He’s gotten super-religious recently. Real culty.” He’s referring to Hillsong, a megachurch that Bieber belongs to. “It’s not culty!” Ashlen interjects. “It’s a total cult,” Malone continues. “He’s already given them, like, $10 million. Those are the worst kinds of people. I used to be super-religious. I believed in God. But now I see through it. It’s nice to support something you believe in, I guess, but people are spending so much money, and God doesn’t care that your church has a fucking gold roof.” I ask if he’s shared these thoughts with Bieber. “We don’t talk about this stuff,” he says. (A source close to Bieber denies that he’s given $10 million.)
While sources have since denied that large of a sum of a donation has been made on behalf of Bieber, it's still pretty crazy to hear Post say Bieber is deep into the mega-church many have been skeptical about. However, he's also said that he's into conspiracy theories and what not so maybe $10 mill is a stretch.
In other Post Malone related news, the singer's "Rockstar" featuring 21 Savage just hit platinum status shortly after it was announced as the longest running Hip Hop #1 single on the Billboard charts. Regardless how you feel about him, Posty's been winning this year.
