My favorite thing about being famous… it's not really as big of a deal as everybody says it is. Being on the road is tough, doing interviews, and all the stuff. It's still pretty tough.
I want to be a real artist to consumers. I want to be the real thing for them.
When I was 6 years old, I was in a rock band that was horrible called 'Dead End.' The name kind of described us. People liked us; we would go and perform at coffee houses and stuff.
There's not a day that I don't work on vocals, have vocal coaches, go to acting classes, read books.
I would forgive my mom, but she's going to have to admit she did some things that were wrong.
Music is something that always lifts my spirits and makes me happy, and when I make music I always hope it will have the same effect on whoever listens to it.
When it comes to relationships, I think I'm pretty experienced – you'd be surprised.
Love shouldn't be about jealousy or anything like that. It should be about commitment and being able to trust that person. If you can't have that from the get-go, there's a problem.
I was singing in a mall, and I picked a girl to come up onstage with me. As I was grabbing her hand, I fell off the stage. It felt like I was in the air forever, flying like Superman.
People have their own opinions but sometimes with the media things get chopped up and cut around to make stories out of it.
I've had my run in with trouble. Fortunately, you know, one slap on the hand is usually the last time for me… I learned my lesson.
Having a dream, living that dream, losing that dream, dreaming again and then having that dream come true again is one of the greatest feelings ever because I'm stronger.
I'm always studying my craft because I want to be the best at what I do.
Animals keep you company when you're really lonely. It helps because when you have a friend around who always likes you no matter what – it's harder to feel bad or down.
