If you could go back (or forward) to live in any decade, when would you choose?
I like the social justice age we are in right now — a culture shift where people can be themselves and bring the change they want to see. Music is expressive and honest.
Who would be your dream co-writer?
Stevie Wonder or Pharrell
If a song started playing every time you entered the room, what would you want it to be?
“Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough” by Michael Jackson
What was your favorite grade in school?
Ninth grade because I couldn’t wait to be a high schooler.
What are you most afraid of?
Why would I tell you? Then you can dress up like a clown and try to scare me.
Who is your celebrity crush?
Pickles or olives?
Plane, train, or automobile?
Automobiles. I love a good road trip with the homies.
Which is worse — rainy days or Mondays?
I love rain and Mondays. Can I say Thursdays?
