Did you know Cody Simpson well before the tour?
Yeah, Cody and I were pretty good friends beforehand. Not as close as we are now, we were on a bus together for six weeks, but we knew each other.
What did you do to kill time while on tour and not performing?
We had a lot of fun. The last show we threw a lot of pranks on each other, silly string, and just had a lot of fun with everybody.
Do you find a lot of people automatically associating your new single “Unfriend You” with Facebook?
It’s that breakup song. That girl who was a really big jerk to you and did not treat you so well. What’s so great about the record is I’m actually about ready to shoot the video and though it’s a breakup song, it always ties back to social media. I think (social media) is a very important aspect, especially in today’s world.
Do you have a favorite social media site?
I love Facebook and Twitter. I really love Tumblr and YouTube as well. I enjoy all of them.
that Top 4 Musical Influences?
For this record I was really inspired by Journey. I love Journey, Lady Gaga, David Bowie and Coldplay.
You love both old-school and new-school music?
Yeah, I listen to a lot of vinyl records so I’m very old-school.
What do you like to do for fun?
Writing music. Music, music, music (laughs). I like photography, I like writing, but (that and music) is really what it’s about.
