Who knew Post Malone loved grapes this much?
We saw some touching speeches at Sunday night’s (24 November) American Music Awards. Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes thanked their mothers during their heartfelt speech, while Halsey took a swipe at the Grammys. And Post Malone? He gushed about his love of… grapes. Yep, seriously.
The ‘Goodbyes’ rapper won the Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop album for Hollywood’s Bleeding. The album features artists like Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott, who he actually beat in the category.

Before getting up on stage, Post admitted he’s not the best public speaking. But he still managed to thank his fans for their support. “Honestly, words cannot express how grateful and thankful I am for everything that y’all show me,” he said. “Thank you for all the fans for showing love and support. We busted our ass for it.”
Well, here’s where the speech took an unexpected turn. Post was wrapping it all up and then he decided on the perfect closing sentence. He added: “We love you very much and I love grapes.”
The internet was in stitches over his random outburst and the memes came rolling in.

Why did Post Malone say “I love grapes”?
Apparently, there’s a reason behind Post Malone’s comment. According to Variety, he made the remark after entering his dressing room trailer to find grapes among the catering options. He then decided to just blurt it out on stage.
