For a few hours today, Post Malone‘s fate was literally up in the air. Fresh from his VMAs performance, the mega-popular rapper was aboard a private jet to England when two tires blew on the landing gear, prompting the pilot to circle for hours and burn off fuel before a successful emergency landing in upstate New York. Post seems a little shaken, but ultimately fine and in good spirits. Soon after landing, he tweeted a “fuck you” to those who were hoping he’d crash.

And in a brief but extremely relatable interview with TMZ, he explained that after his brush with death, he mostly just wanted a drink:

“I hate flying in general. I don’t even know what to say, man. I’m shook. There’s one hell of a team on that aircraft. And we’re here, we’re here on Earth, and I need a beer, and I need some wine, at the same time, mixed together.”
