"If you're looking for lyrics, if you're looking to cry, if you're looking to think about life, don't listen to hip-hop," he said in a video interview, after joking that he had a lot of emotions because he's white. "There's great hip-hop songs where they talk about life and they spit that real shit, but right now, there's not a lot of people talking about real shit. Whenever I want to cry, whenever I want to sit down and have a nice cry, I'll listen to some Bob Dylan.

As far as his favorite occasions to listen to hip-hip, he said, "Whenever I'm trying to have a good time and stay in a positive mood, I listen to hip-hop. Because it's fun. I think hip-hop is important because it brings people together in a beautiful, happy way."
