[about his father] He knows so many things. He's into mathematics, so when he sees me getting into maths and sees me building, working power tools and learning how to cut angles he's like, 'Wow,' and that makes me feel really good.
I'll watch movies I like to see, Steve Jobs interviews, something that's going to make me smart and then go to sleep.
My dad once told me, he was like, 'The only time you should lie is when someone's holding a gun to your head and says 'Okay, lie or I'm going to shoot you.'' And that really stuck with me.
I used to not be really honest with girls and then I dropped a song called 'Starry Room' and then I started turning over a new leaf.
