Tyler, the Creator has no plans of living a long life. The Odd Future frontman who is known for his violent lyrics predicts that he will only live until age 40.

In an interview with the U.K.’s Q Magazine, Tyler revealed that he will either be killed or die from a drug overdose. “I’ll be dead [by the time I’m 40],” he explained.”Either an obsessed fan or a heroin overdose. I’ll probably get into that at 24.”

The Los Angeles native also admitted that his controversial comments have gotten him into arguments with people other than Chris Brown, detailing a disagreement he had with a fan via Twitter. “I got into an argument because I said the Columbine [shooters] were probably really cool people,” he said regarding the 1999 school shooting which left 12 students and one teacher dead. “I was just saying they could have been really nice people, probably could have taken them to a game. I wasn’t saying what they did was right.”

Even if he continues to put his foot in his mouth, his unapologetic attitude resonates with fans, who showed their support for his ‘Goblin’ album, which debuted at the No. 5 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The album sold 50,000 copies in its first week and has sold 75,000 units as of June.
