Certain stars in the entertainment industry develop certain images over the course of their careers and, while some of these stars do not like the way that they get perceived, there are others who are more than happy with the way people think of them. Rapper Wiz Khalifa has developed a reputation for being a bit of a stoner and the singer has now opened up about having that label.
In a few interviews recently, Wiz Khalifa seemed to be saying that he did not want the stoner reputation anymore but Wiz has now cleared up exactly what he meant. Wiz says that he is and always will be proud of who he is but he would just like it if people could give him and his music a little more credit.
Khalifa explained, "People kind of keyed in one part of that article and didn't read into what I was saying; that's cool, because that makes headlines too. I wasn't saying that I want to shake my stoner image, because I'm always going to think of myself as a stoner and marijuana enthusiast."
He added, "I just don't want to be overlooked as anything more. It's just easier for people to lean on that, rather than looking into my music or my message behind what I do. I just want to make it less easy for people to lean on marijuana; they're going to have to pay attention to other things."
As for his personal life, Wiz Khalifa split from his wife Amber Rose earlier this year, with there being plenty of rumours about cheating on both their parts. It is highly unlikely that these two will ever get back together.
