Post Malone has admitted that he writes 60 per cent of his lyrics while sitting on the toilet.
The rapper and singer said in a new interview that he considers the bathroom to be his “oasis” where he has also written around 30 per cent of his albums to date.
“Shit literally comes to me because I write all my songs on the can,” he told The Howard Stern Show. “I’d say about 30 per cent of all my albums have been written on the shitter, and I’d say 60 per cent of lyrics have been written on the shitter.”
He added that he can spend up to two hours on the toilet on occasion writing music and that he has a special notepad for the activity.
Malone continued: “It’s my special zone because no one wants to come talk to you while you’re taking a shit. No one, I don’t care who it is. I wouldn’t say it’s a hideaway as much as it’s an oasis.”
Elsewhere in the interview Malone confirmed that his girlfriend (now fiancée) gave birth to a baby girl in Los Angeles last month.
Malone also revealed that he asked permission from Frances Bean Cobain to do his Nirvana charity livestream event in 2020.
The rapper is well-known for his smoking habit, often seen in interviews and photos with a cigarette in his hands.
Speaking to Full Send, the star spoke about how many cigarettes he usually smokes.
“There’s a really fine line between a terrible day and a good day,” he said when asked by the hosts what his average is for a good day. “40, 45? By the time I ask Ben for that second pack, I’m like, ‘Alright dude, chill out’. But then by the time I open that third pack, I’m like, ‘I’m a total piece of shit and I need to go to sleep’,” he said.
