The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart reveals alcohol addiction: ‘I am flawed’
In a recent Instagram post, Drew Taggart, one half of The Chainsmokers, opened up about his struggles with alcoholism and how it has affected his career. In a video of Taggart playing the duo’s new song “Self Destruction Mode” with bludnymph while sitting at a piano, he wrote in the caption about how his addiction is “woven into the environment we exist in.” He also shared that the guilt of not being good enough sends him spiraling into a cycle of bad habits. Taggart ended his message by stating that the new tune is not “a cry for help,” but rather an “embrace or celebration” of who he is.
In September 2021, TheFantasyTimes reported that Taggart was partying at The Palace and flirting with various women while there. Our insider shared that he was trying to hook up with every girl and even left with some tech billionaires, including Mikey Hess. Taggart’s attempts seemed to be successful as he brought home one of the girls.
While Taggart’s Cassanova ways seemed tempered for a while when he was rumored to be dating Selena Gomez, the pair fizzled out, and she was later rumored to be getting close to former One Direction member Zayn Malik. Gomez clarified last week that she is currently “single” while flirting with a group of soccer players.
The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart revealed on Instagram that he has been struggling with alcoholism – and opens up about it in their new single.
Sitting at a piano while playing the duo’s new tune with bludnymph, “Self Destruction Mode,” Taggart used the video’s caption to describe his “flawed nature.”
“i’ve struggled with drinking throughout my career as it’s an addiction that’s woven into the environment we exist in,” he began his statement.
“this guilt of not being good enough or not being better ironically sends me into a spiral that restarts my bad habit cycle.”
Taggart, 33, ended his message sharing that the new tune is not “a cry for help” but rather “an embrace or celebration” of who he is.
“i know that im [sic] flawed. i know that i am great and so are you,” he concluded. “Never forget it.”
