Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart: ‘I’ve had a hard time drinking’ in my career

Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart: ‘I’ve had a hard time drinking’ in my career

Drew Taggart got candid about how his addiction to alcohol has affected his life over the years.

The Chainsmokers singer, 33, took to social media on Wednesday, June 14, to share a video of him playing the band’s recent single “Self Destruction Mode,” describing its meaning in the caption.

“I’ve struggled with drinking throughout my career because it’s an addiction that’s woven into the environment we exist in,” said Taggart, who works with Alex Pall, wrote via Instagram. “This guilt of not being good enough or not being better ironically sends me into a spiral that restarts my cycle of bad habits.”

He continued: “This song is not a cry for help but more of a hug or a celebration of all that I am. I know I’m flawed. I know I’m awesome and so are you. never forget.”

The song, which was released by The Chainsmokers and performs Bludnymph earlier this month, seemed to address Taggart’s personal battle more in the lyrics. (The Maine native hadn’t publicly discussed his struggle with alcohol before.)

“I woke up in self destruct mode / I press go and start again / I love my sins, they’re all I know / We got close to all my friends,” the chorus begins.

Taggart rose to fame after forming The Chainsmokers with Pall, 38, in 2012. The production duo began by releasing remixes of songs before releasing their own work. Taggart and Pall won a Grammy Award.

The couple made headlines earlier this year when they revealed they had had several threesomes due to their band’s popularity.

“I think we were like, ‘What just happened?’ Because they were never planned,” Pall shared during a joint appearance on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast in January. “It’s weird, I’m not going to lie.”

Taggart, for his part, implied that the sexual encounter was not a one-time event. He went on to say that he was in a “pretty new” relationship at the time of recording.

We Weekly announced in January that the musician was dating Selena Gomez following his separation from Eve Jobs. “They’re not trying to hide their romance by sneaking into members-only clubs,” an insider revealed to We. “They are so affectionate and have a lot of fun together. Selena can barely keep her hands off him.

The source noted that Taggart’s split from Jobs, 24, was “totally amicable” after their brief romance. Eagle-eyed fans noticed, however, that the California native deleted her ex-boyfriend from her social media feed amid news of her leaving.

Gomez, 30, meanwhile, poked fun at her own love life a month later as she lip-synced in a TikTok video: “Guys, I’ve figured out the reason why I’m Single. You have to go out and meet people. Like, you actually have to go out and talk to them.

The couple’s romance eventually fizzled out and Gomez has since been linked to Zayn Malik. Taggart, for his part, was recently spotted hanging out with the model Marianne Fonseca.
