Mike Posner’s monastery go to | Leisure

Mike Posner will celebrate the conquest of Mount Everest by spending several weeks in a monastery so he can figure out what challenge to take on next.

The hit maker “Cooler Than Me” will take over the expedition and mark the occasion with “doing absolutely nothing” and “without human interaction”. He said, “I just have to stop and do absolutely nothing – without my phone, without any human interaction. And then I figure out what to do next. This is my after-party, dude. No champagne, no strippers. “

The 33-year-old singer has investigated the risks of the expedition.

Speaking to People magazine, he added, “I’m happy with the risks, especially given the work I’ve done. My goal is to go there and have fun. It’s like a trip of a lifetime. The The risk thing is we’re going to die anyway. We’re all going to die. My dad is dead. Avicii is dead. Mac Miller is dead. One day I’ll be dead. Hopefully not soon.

“But before that happens, I want to live. I want to live my life. So I’m happy with the risk after doing the research.”

Meanwhile, Mike had previously announced that he would attempt to climb Mount Everest to raise funds for a nonprofit judicial reform charity in honor of his late father.

He tweeted at the time: “SO EXCITING to announce that I’m going to try and climb the highest mountain on earth, Mount Everest, this May with @DrJonKedski to raise funds for @justcitydetroit … PLEASE DONATE what you can. .. or just share the GoFundMe link (sic) “

As he added in a statement, “Before my father died, he was a detroit attorney for 40 years. I decided to dedicate my advancement to the Detroit Justice Center, a nonprofit, because they are doing criminal justice reform work in my city that would make my father beam with joy to let. “
