Rolling Stone recently visited “Rockstar” Post Malone at his home outside of LA. Hot on the heels of the success of his latest single, which has been number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for 5 weeks and counting, Malone gets real about his life outside of his impressive music career.
Check out the highlights below, where Post talks about his love of guns, a $3 million dollar bunker-style mansion he’s about to buy, and why he thinks Justin Bieber’s church is a cult. He also spills some deets on his upcoming sophomore album, Beerbongs & Bentleys, the follow-up to his 2016 debut Stoney. Read the full article here.
He celebrated the success of “Rockstar” at Olive Garden.
When “Rockstar” first went to Number One, he says, he celebrated with a blowout meal with [his girlfriend] Ashlen at Olive Garden: “I love Olive Garden.”
Shooting guns is one of his preferred forms of self-care.
“I love shooting,” he says. “The feeling is pure . . . inebriation. It’s like hitting a punching bag to let off steam.”
He thinks pal Justin Bieber’s new church Hillsong is a cult.
“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.”
He’s about to buy a $3 million dollar hideout in Utah.
He has no home studio here, but there will be one, he vows, in his next house: a 13,000-square-foot home in northern Utah that he’s about to buy for “like, $3 million.” Set on nearly seven acres, it will serve as both a party palace for his homeys – “I’m gonna put in, like, 30 bunk beds” – and a secluded compound for him and Ashlen to hunker down at, playing Xbox together, riding motorbikes, firing off guns that no one else will be able to hear.
His sophomore album will feature some notable guest artists.
When he hasn’t been touring, he’s been working on his second album. It’s nearly finished and is set to feature collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign, John Mayer and Tommy Lee.
