Hidden talent?
00:01
I can demonstrate it for you.
00:02
(pops)
00:08
Three words that describe my style
00:10
would be street chic, rock 'n roll and swarve on occasion.
00:16
I'd probably never wear onesies or overalls.
00:19
The songs I have on repeat right now
00:20
would be Blue Neighborhood by Troye Sivan,
00:23
the acoustic version of What Do You Mean by the Beebs
00:28
and Seven Years by Lukas Graham.
00:31
First song I learned to play on the guitar
00:33
was Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day.
00:35
(laughs)
00:36
Most fanboy I've had with a celebrity
00:39
would be the time I met Martin Scorsese
00:42
on live TV in France.
00:43
Number of unread emails I have right now.
00:47
Let me just check my phone real quick.
00:49
Oh my goodness, 2,959 unread emails.
00:53
A lot of spam, keep that in mind
00:54
and I have about 300 unread DMs.
00:57
A very funny comment I got on Instagram,
00:59
it's a little inappropriate,
01:01
so I'll leave the more inappropriate word out.
01:03
The comment was, shove a Tamagotchi up my
01:07
and call me a hamster because you're hot.
01:09
(laughs)
01:10
I gotta good laugh out of it.
01:12
Do I follow my ex?
01:13
No, we mutually blocked each other on social media.
01:16
Something on social media
01:18
I wouldn't want my parents to see
01:19
would definitely be my shirtless selfies.
01:21
I feel like they'd judge me for that.
01:23
(laughs)
01:24
Go to snack?
01:26
Red pepper hummus with pita chips.
01:27
My guilty pleasure.
01:29
I have two.
01:30
An excessive amount of caffeine and veeping.
01:35
Yeah, let's talk about my tattoos.
01:36
The question I get a lot is, do you regret any of them?
01:39
And the answer to that would be, no.
01:41
They're reminders of where I was at
01:43
in that period of my life when I got them
01:45
and where I'm at now.
01:46
I believe that the body is a canvas
01:48
and some people like tattoos, others don't.
01:51
For me, it's a form of self-expression.
01:53
And, yeah, I'm not gonna stop any time soon.
