Quotes

  • I can give you the most lit advice ever but when it comes to applying it in my life It's a train wreck[4]
  • Never told this story, but when I first met Michael on boyband I thought he was a mega douche. Went on the first couple weeks really not liking him. Then one day during the six track rehearsals he and I ate at McDonalds and stayed there talking for like three hours. We talked about how hard it was to make music and the challenges to keep going no matter what people said and did to try hate on us. FINALLY I felt like someone understood me! Needless to say we were best friends from there on out. Each week I watched him grow as a singer and a performer. He proved everybody who ever doubted him wrong and landed him a spot in the band. [...] I'm so proud of you bro and you inspire me everyday. Never stop being you lil bro[5]
