I mean, I honestly couldn't tell you what he's thinking and what his thoughts were, but I think at the end of the day I helped him just as much as he helped me grow and, you know, kind of relax. I think that was a lot of the situation. It's just sometimes just when you get fame so fast and everything's going at you, you just have to really learn who you are.
