Inside, the 24-year-old “Love More” singer opened up about a plethora of things including his issues with the media, his infamous Twitter rants and whether or not he really plans on quitting music. Check out a few highlights from his interview below.
On mainstream media:
“If we lived in an ideal world, we wouldn’t enjoy seeing other people fail and falter and suffer, but unfortunately that’s not the case. People want to know who you are and about you but some of the media doesn’t always give the full story…”
On Twitter rants and claiming he’s quitting music:
“Everyone has moments of frustration. I tend to voice what I’m feeling, for the good or the bad … I think I wear my heart on my sleeve … Music will always be apart of my life.”
“…I expect to have highs and lows, that’s life. I am open to every day and to every experience. I’m only 24. I have a long way to go and I embrace that journey…”
On his new album, X:
“I tried to stay away from the euro pop beats. This record pays homage to the sounds of Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, [and] Sam Cooke.”
