You're transitioning from "boy celebrity" to "man celebrity"? Which is better?
I think that this stage in my life is really, for a lot of reasons, pretty incredible. Being a solo artist and trying to take these bold steps on my own.
Do you feel more pressure?
I don't know if it's more pressure—both come with their own pressure.
But, like, before, if something went wrong, you could just be like, "Yo, that was Kevin."
It's definitely a lot more on your own, taking on all the responsibility.
More responsibility, but also more rewarding?
Definitely. I think anytime that you push yourself, it's more rewarding. It makes being on my own that much sweeter.
Do you ever get jealous of your abs for hogging the spotlight?
[laughs] You know what? If my abs drove them to the music and got them to access the other projects I'm doing, it's all good. It's all worth it.
I asked my 13-year-old what I should ask you, and she said, "Ask if he's single." So—and I want you to think very carefully about your answer—are you open to dating my 13-year-old daughter?
[laughs] No, I'm not.
That is correct.
It would be highly illegal. But I'm flattered.
Just stick to the script.
