As you may recall, Joey's announcement earlier this week that three appearances on Logic's Everybody's Tour had been canceled "due to unforeseen circumstances" was met with fans immediately pulling up a pair of tweets about his alleged eclipse viewing methods.
Thursday, Peter Rosenberg gave Joey a call on Ebro in the Morning to clarify the rumors. "I'm legally blind," he joked at the start of the call, before later confirming that joke was indeed a joke. "I'm OK, guys."
Still, Joey decided to keep trolling everyone with additional faux updates on his post-eclipse eyes via Instagram. "Doc said I gotta keep these on in the daytime now," Joey said in one post, showing off a pair of glasses that at least one fan found enviable enough to publicly ponder staring at eclipses, just to have an excuse to wear them. "A lil annoying but they're pretty fire," Joey added.
In another post Friday, Joey clarified his previous joke to Rosenberg about being "legally blind" after the eclipse. "It's a lot of rumors and allegations going on about me, a lot of people are confused, a lot of people are worried and hitting my phone, so I just wanted to come on here and address the situation," Joey said. "Yep, haha, jokes is on me. It is true. I can now see the future. In fact, I am now legally blind to the bullshit."
For those wondering, staring at an eclipse isn't required to achieve a blindness to the bullshit.
According to Joey's website, his next scheduled performances are at the Meadows Music an Arts Festival in New York City Sept. 15 and the Spaceland Block Party in Los Angeles Sept. 17.
