No matter where you play, a stadium or an arena, when you're present on stage, it's going to feel like a theater.
I think I was just bored one summer afternoon, and I decided to post a little video of me singing and playing guitar out of tune.
I wanted to be an actor, like, so, so bad. I took acting classes, I auditioned for Disney, and then I realized how nervous I got with remembering lines.
I think my all time favourite song would be between 'Slow Dancing in a Burning Room' and 'Dreaming with a Broken Heart' by John Mayer.
Being 15, I feel like people want me to go down the Justin Bieber, Cody Simpson sort of genre.
I want to graduate high school, so it's very important to me, and I'll be focusing hard on that as well.
There's so much negativity on social media, I don't want to add to that.
I have a thing where if I'm not in control, I feel the whole world is about to collapse.
From 15 to 18, everybody is a different person. Every six months, I have a whole new outlook on life.
I don't want to just be a teenage star. I want to be known by parents, and I want them to go, 'Oh I love that song; he's really good for his age. My daughter loves him, but I love him, too.'
I carry around this little lion named Leo, which I've had for as long as I can remember.
I have a song called 'I Don't Even Know Your Name' which I think is going to be well liked across the board.
What I love about my fragrance Signature is that it's subtle and great to wear for any person at any time.
I used to write stories. Handwriting stories in school were a big deal for me. That's kind of what I did.
I've watched pretty much every Ed Sheeran video on You Tube that is possible to watch.
I'm always wanting to spread as much positivity as possible, so I really try to keep that the case with my fans and with the campaigns that I do.
I really think the best fragrances are ones you can wear every day.
From day 1, Justin Timberlake has been a huge inspiration for me.
I can't believe how fast things have happened, and I'm just so honored that people are able to look to me as a leader.
As soon as I get time, I really wanna dig down and do some acting.
I like to think of 'Illuminate' as the mature version of the previous one, a year older, more experience.
I love Milan, and I'm not just saying that. It's a city that gives me a great sense of euphoria. I can't explain why, but I feel a special energy there.
There have been artists who've sold out arenas one year, and the next they can't fill a theatre. There's always more to achieve.
I was one of those kids who was just always on the Internet, always on YouTube, so it was easy for me to do it. It's not work. It's just fun.
I think when I do things outside of music, I am always thinking of different things that are eventually one way or another going to come back to my music. I have to make sure it is all cohesive, as that's important to me as an artist and a person.
Did people care about how a singer sounded live back in the day? I don't really feel like they did. Not everything was being filmed. Today, one huge mess-up, and millions are seeing it. There's a lot more on the line nowadays. We're so cautious and scared of messing up. It adds a lot of stress to a career.
It's hard for me to just say, 'Wow, this is amazing - I'm famous. I'm living the dream.' I sit there and think, 'I'm scared - this can go away tomorrow.' My dad always says that I'm a tortured soul because I'm never pleased; I never feel like I deserve what I've achieved.
A lot of people who are 'social media' stars aren't considered to be 'real' stars, and people underestimate the amount of work it takes to edit and upload a video every single day and document your life like that.
I come up with more ideas when I'm on the road, but I don't get to finish them. I don't get to fully flush them out because I'm so busy on the road. I'm very all over the place, but I'm definitely most creative when I'm out here.
If I don't have cereal on the bus, I'm going to be really upset.
I think when you have raw emotion in a song, it makes it great.
I'm 100 per cent involved in everything that happens with my name, and I think if you're not, then there's something wrong.
I loved entertainment and acting, performing. I just liked the stage and having the spotlight and stuff.
I really love going back home. I think going back to a nice, relaxed little town is the best way to do it.
With love, there are so many layers to it that you can write all day about it. It's not just heartbreak or falling in love; there's so many different ways to look at it.
Someone was like, 'If you wanna be a celebrity, know that every girl you talk to is going to be your girlfriend.' And I was like, 'Fine. I accept that for getting to do what I love for the rest of my life.'
I'm not just writing songs that are narrating my life, but everyone else around my age because they're super-relatable.
I picture myself now, and I picture myself in 30 years, and I'll probably be the same. I'll still think I'm not the greatest singer I can be.
