Your fan fiction video showed a different side of your fan base. What was it like for you reading those pieces -- even though it was a bit uncomfortable?
I really can't explain that. I have no idea. It's a little shocking when people send you those things. But at the end of the day, they're expressing themselves in a similar way that I express myself.
Where did you even find the pieces?
People will just Tweet them to me, and if you search my name and add fan fiction you will see it. At the time, there was a trending hashtag going around of people doing that stuff, so I just hopped on it and showcased it to my fans.
How many did you have to read in preparation for that video?
I went through at least 50 of them, but I could only choose like four of them since a lot of them were very R-rated. You have to keep it clean for YouTube.
What's been your favorite video that you've created so far?
Man, that's a tough one. I did a what's in my mouth challenge and that was really fun. We put like fish food in my mouth -- just some really disgusting things. Coffee grinds, flour, stuff like that.
I can't believe that challenge was trending!
Yeah, but it's so entertaining to watch it.
