AceShowbiz - Post Malone had an embarrassing experience during his St. Louis show over the weekend. While performing his 21 Savage-assisted single "Rockstar", the 22-year-old rapper tried to stage dive. However, he seemed to have too much faith in his fans as no one in the lively audience bothered to catch him after he leaped.
Consequently, he landed painfully on the floor and the concertgoers, instead of helping him up, were more interested in recording the awkward moment. Post himself also laughed it off, continuing his performance while lying on the ground and trying to regain his composure. According to a witness, he even made out with a woman on the floor.
In response to the embarrassing situation, Post later took to Twitter to compare himself to Jack Black, who suffered similar fall in 2003's comedy film "School of Rock". "Felt like jack black in school of rock tonight when I staged dived and nobody caught my fat a**," he wrote. "Wish I had lil uzi [Lil Uzi Vert] body."

Aside from the failed stage dive, the Texas native is having a strong week. His latest single "Rockstar" debuts at No. 2 on Billboard Hot 100. It also broke Apple Music's single-week streaming record, which was previously held by DJ Khaled's "I'm the One".
The streaming company has a long history of supporting the rapper since the release of his breakout single "White Iverson". Carl Chery, Apple Music's head of artist curation recently said, " 'White Iverson' was being heavily supported in iTunes--that song is old enough that Apple Music wasn't even live yet. We were supporting him heavily back then, and we did the same thing with 'Stoney' project last year. The process is pretty simple for us, if we like it, we support it."
