Q: What do you sing in the shower?


A: Usually songs by The Weeknd. My shower acoustics are impeccable.


Q: Describe your craziest studio experience.


A: My producer let me try spiked eggnog for the first time last Christmas. I got so messed up we ended up recording a 20-minute freestyle about eggnog. I’m thinking about releasing it this year as a Christmas album.


Q: Where did you play your first gig?


A: My first live performance with a microphone in my hand was at a high school rally. I was a sophomore and very nervous.


Q: How much music do you own?


A: Five CDs, more than 100 records and 7,899 MP3s.


Q: Name your guilty pleasure.


A: I’m embarrassed of nothing. But people look at me weird when I sing “I’m Too Sexy.”
