If I make a record I love, then somebody will like it. Maybe not everybody, but that won't matter.

You gotta remember, I'm 24 years old. Who knows if I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing? But yeah, I'd like to rock out some day!

A lot of pop people out there are cool, but they overdo it.

I'm not melancholy; I'm a happy-go-lucky person, kind of silly. I like funny things. I have a lot of energy. I tend to like music that's mellow, though.

I don't try to sound like anyone but me anymore. If something is out of my element, I try to avoid it.

That's been the coolest thing about all this - I get to meet people that I worship!

The coolest thing I've gotten to do in the past few years is guest star on Sesame Street.

I just do the same stuff I always did. I have a bigger apartment - that's the main change.

Without a piano I don't know how to stand, don't know what to do with my hands.
