So was he worried about being labeled a pop artist? “I love playing guitar too much, and I’m far too invested in it to let anything happen in my life that would take the focus off of it,” he said. “I had this Hilary Duff dream where we were hanging out at this pool, and she was using me as a pool chair, just chilling on me. In my dream I said to her, ‘You have to get off me, we do different things.’ I couldn’t even have fun in my dream!”
