At that point, it's not even a relationship."

As for his music, the "Boyfriend" singer said, "I feel like it's my responsibility to be the greatest I can be." He elaborated, "If I start making terrible music, I don't expect people to like me. If I'm making great music and there's no reason for people to dislike me, that's when it's going to make me upset. People just need to take a chance and listen. If they don't want to take a chance, then I don't know. That's going to be the biggest problem, to make them feel like it's cool for them to like my music."
