Charlie Puth Admits He Said, ‘I’m Hungies’
A 2018, Billboard profile of Charlie Puth forever linked the singer to the phrase, “I’m hungies,” but did he really say it?
In a recent conversation with Interview magazine, Puth told writer Hilton Dresden that he doesn’t remember saying the infamous line, but he does think it probably happened.
The “Light Switch” singer said, “I’m sure I said it in my subconscious and I just blurted it out. I think I was probably half-asleep. I remember seeing it and thinking, ‘Oh God, that does sound like some stupid crap I would say.’ I don’t remember saying it, but it sounds like something I would say.”
He continued, “It’s kind of like baby talk. It’s like what you’d say to a dog or something. When I meet a dog, I kind of allude to a baby tone like, ‘Oh my god, you’re such a cute little baby dog.’ But maybe I just didn’t eat that day and I was on the way to lunch. ‘I’m so hungies.'”
Back in 2018, a Billboard documented Puth telling his driver, “I’m hungies,” only for him to deny it one year later to BuzzFeed Celeb.
