Lil Wayne is not getting high during interviews, he’s just trying to keep himself from dying. Apparently Weezy had a health scare on his private jet last month – an incident his reps say was a mixture of dehydration and a migraine, not a seizure – and has been taking antiseizure medication ever since. Via New York Times:
But during an interview with MTV in New Orleans on Wednesday to promote his new music video “No Worries,” the rapper said he now takes antiseizure medication. He added that his recovery regimen includes drinking four bottles of water each day. The revelation to MTV came after Lil Wayne expressed worry that fans watching the interview might think he was taking illicit drugs. “I don’t want y’all to think I’m on nothing, man,” he said. “I’m on seizure medicine, man, that’s all.”
So, it wasn’t a seizure, but they put him on antiseizure drugs anyway? Right, because doctors just hand those things out like it’s no big deal.
