I've been doing transcendental meditation every day on the road, and it's one of the best things I've ever done.
But 'Sixteen Candles' is the only movie I could watch over and over and over without getting sick of it.
I get inspiration from movies, from fashion, then completely random things you'd never think of.
I'm kind of thinking that I might start trying to do some acting. I really enjoy role play.
I pick up inspiration from everywhere and it all manages to keep stored in my brain somewhere.
I'm hoping to knock down the walls and broaden the lane a little bit more for music that's pop music at the heart of it.
I love watching movies. It breaks up the monotony of the road and momentarily takes you somewhere else.
So I don't think of myself as just a musician at all, I think of myself as an artist.
I've just been learning how to direct my own videos, choreography, doing costumes… every creative opportunity there is with my music I've taken.
My mom's collard greens. No one else in the world can make them like hers. I'm not just saying that because she's my mom. She's got some Mississippi secret. I could seriously eat them every day.
