[Ed. – Sounds like a real genius.]
Joey Bada$$, a hip-hop artist who has earned praise from Malia Obama, asked his Twitter followers if he was “crazy” for staring at the solar eclipse without protective glasses — then canceled his upcoming performances.
“Am I crazy for watching the eclipse today w no glasses?” the rapper tweeted. “I’ve sungazed before and afterwards saw colors for a whole day. I didn’t die tho.”
He continued: “This ain’t the first solar eclipse and I’m pretty sure our ancestors ain’t have no fancy eyewear. Also pretty sure they ain’t all go blind.”
Bada$$ then nixed three upcoming performances without any clear explanation.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, my Cleveland, Chicago & Toronto shows on the #EverybodyTour are cancelled,” Bada$$ told his followers.
“Seeing double, stacking triple,” he tweeted Wednesday evening.
