They weren’t trying to sell like, “Oh, we have this huge music library that you can cover songs.”It really just happened. Like we just had to do it, and I was like, “I don’t wanna hear it! We just had a distributor who just distributed for us and was sharing my numbers as if I was an artist on a record label.

I went into Petsmart one day — no, Petco — and I saw this ball python, and they are just like little babies, and they were just looking at me through the glass, and I was like, “Dang, I want one! I’m not really sure why that happened, but once my mom said no, I started looking for the next best thing, so I got a blue-tongued skink because I was doing my research on different reptiles and like reptiles that are easy to take care of, because snake is probably the easiest thing you can take care of truly. So that was really cool to get that happening without that.

When I’m at Disneyland, I get recognized by mostly Asians, and my friends have a freakin’ like game like where they’re like [snaps] these guys are fans, you know what I mean?

And if not of me, then of our other friends on You Tube.

I think more Asian Americans watch You Tube because it is pretty much the only place where they can watch Asian Americans.

It’s tough, and I’ve talked about this in a lot of these interviews when they talk about the Asian-American thing is that — well, it’s funny; I don’t even think there is even an Asian on “Glee” anymore this season, but when Harry Shum was on “Glee,” nobody knew his name.

And of course having my whole family and just being happy I think.

I truly — even when I first put together my band and things like this, we were all getting excited. We’re going to be huge, we are going to play for stadiums and stuff,” but really that stuff doesn’t matter to me anymore.I live with my mom and my little sister Justine, but I still think that my mom being proud of me is success.The fact that she supports what I’m doing is like the best thing to have, and if she approves of that, I think you are on your way to success from there, to have your parents’ approval and things like that.It’s sad because a record deal is like a loan with really bad interest. They’ve been in control for way too long; we don’t need them anymore.Maker, as far as I’m concerned, was started by You Tubers, and Maker music was a huge deal for me to sign with them as well.Success to me is, I reached success when I wrote my first song, and I brought it to a show and people were singing along.
