THE BOY WHO IS SUDDENLY EVERYWHERE IS ABOUT TO BE RIGHT HERE!
GF: Is this going to be your first visit to Australia. What are you looking forward to doing while you’re here?
JACOB: I’ve never been to Australia before and I can’t wait to do some sightseeing, explore the country and connect with my fans there for the first time. It’s going to be an amazing trip.
GF: You’re basically a worldwide superstar now – can you tell us how this came about?
JACOB: Isn’t that a crazy thing to think about?! It all started from an anti-bullying Vine I posted, which received millions of loops. From there, I began making Musical.ly posts, which were getting quite a lot of attention. I’ve always been interested in music and did musical theatre as a kid, so being a music artist has always been a passion.
GF: We’re obsessed with your song ‘Last Text’ – what was the last text you sent? JACOB: It was to my sister. My family is all really close and most of them travel with me while I’m on tour to give me support. My sister is in college now so can’t make it to everything, but we talk all the time.
GF: What’s your favourite and most used emoji?
JACOB: I use the smiley one with the heart eyes all the time.
