Despite the criticism he may face, Malone has been stepping up to the plate to perform for audiences since he was 16 years old. "I remember the first time I got drunk at [my friend] Drew’s house and they had a guitar, so I got out my guitar and started singing because I was hammered," he told Howard Stern in 2022. "I played … 'Wicked Games' by the Weeknd … [and] they were like, ‘This is really good. This is actually good.'"

“There was a point in my life to where I was not happy with who I was, and I was a f------ t--- and I sucked, and now I just want to be better every f------ day,” Malone explained. “All we can do is just don’t be a d-------, that’s the golden rule.”
