In an interview with Buzzfeed, he says, “When I was 16 years old I wanted nothing more than to go on testosterone and to pass as male and to fit into that stereotype,” he said. “And luckily my parents were like, you cannot start hormones until you’re 18. So I had two more years to think about it and I spent those two years thinking about it almost every day, like obsessing over it. And then I came to the decision that I don’t need testosterone in order to be happy, and I don’t need testosterone in order to be a man.”
"“I want my music to touch people,” he said. “I want to take people away from pain and I think that the good thing about music is that when you hear music it takes you away from whatever you’re going through. You could totally get lost in music and I think that’s why music is such a powerful tool and why I love music so much.”"
