23. What Made You Want To Get Into The Music Business?

You see I’ve had a very good life at the beginning but from 12 to 18 years of age or some of my darkest times. I don’t even think I was allowed to look up at the sky and Pray I don’t think God even heard me or at least that’s what I thought. I felt so unloved that I wanted to start out being part of the music industry because I’ve seen all these artists and celebrities getting tons of love and support it almost seems like you know they’re having a good time and being the unloved and unlikable person I wanted love
So I spent most of my life chasing Love and acceptance in the form of billboards and Grammys but boy am I opening a different can of worms if I do that. Because i’ve learned from YouTube videos from other people who had signed with labels that Music and celebrity culture is seen as more of a business than a friendship.

24. How Does Your Family Feel About Your Music And Your Choice Of Career?

It’s a painful reality that when people see differences in you they take it as just another justification to oppress you

I hope that my music is heard because I want to be that person on the Internet and all over the world that everybody knows
