When I'm singing a song on stage, I hate hypocrites.
If you don't put yourself in that lyric and emote and be what that lyric says that you are, then you're just going through the motions and you're being hypocritical. I just take that same approach with acting. I just take the dialogue and I emote it and become that. I use the same technic.

I only record songs that I really like and believe in and can sing with conviction.
If I feel like doing something, I do it.
If I feel like saying something, I say it. If I feel like dancing, I do. If I don't, I don't.
