Full wall of tile over drywall

I have a wall of half inch drywall. If I want to tile the entire wall with glass tile, will the drywall support it? The studs it's screwed to are about 16 inches on center.

I've read some conflicting things online. At this point reno fatigue is setting in, so if the answer is 'no' I'm more likely to just paint the wall than replace it with tile backer.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

The drywall will be fine for your glass tile.
