Because of course he did.
Post Malone always looks like a competition winner that can’t quite believe his luck. Now it’s emerged that the superstar chose his name from an online generator.
Which, let’s face it, is the most Post Malone thing ever. The rapper confessed all in a video interview with Vice.
He says he came up with the name back in high school after he entered his real name of Austin Post into the generator. Lo and behold, it came up with the pseudonym of Post Malone, and the rest is history.
“I was looking for a name because I already had all these songs done,” he said.
Inspired by him, social media users have rushed to use The Rap Name Generator to find out what their rap star name is.
Just FYI, you can now call me by my new name of Juicy Curves. Thanks, myrapname.com
Malone was asked if he’d consider working with 6ix9ine. He replied: “Would I? Chances are, no.”
Many musicians definitely have too much time on their hands.
Lil Uzi Vert recently had an obscenely large pink diamond pierced into his forehead. He claims the gemstone set him back $24 million, or £17 million.
He’s been showing it off on social media, but received a huge amount of ridicule after people decided the new jewellery made him look like Marvel’s Vision.
Machine Gun Kelly is also a musician who really needs someone to tell him “no”.
He’s been photographed wearing a pendant of girlfriend Megan Fox’s blood around his neck. Move over Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie.
On Valentine’s Day (so romantic) he shared a photo of a necklace with what looks like blood floating in the pendant. He wrote the caption, “i wear your blood around my neck.”
Megan returned the favour by writing some truly terrible poetry:
there goes my heart
manifest outside of my body
draped in the towering silhouette of a most unusually handsome boy
magical and haunted
kinetic and tortured
ethereal and dangerous
the journey will likely be perilous
but there is no destination without him

Who needs capital letters and punctuation, eh?
