In an interview on the UK show GMTV he got to address a new topic, his painful perfectionism. “I am so hard on myself,” he said. “I’m a perfectionist and I get so frustrated with myself when it’s not perfect.”
With reflection, he isn’t too hard on himself to see the quality as a positive.
“But I think it’s a good thing. My expectations for myself are so high that when I go onstage, I have to try to live up to these expectations and that probably creates a stronger performance. If I were lazy and didn’t care as much, it’d probably be mediocre stuff I was doing.” Are you listening Season 9 contestants?
