“Man,” he told Billboard ahead of his current jaunt, “all I’ve been thinking about is the tour, and I’ll be going some places that I’ve never been before. But after the tour, and after all the shows, I’m really looking forward to just being with my friends. I think we’re gonna go on a trip to Greece and have two weeks and just live my life.”

The 21-year-old has been a regular on network TV this week. Earlier, he performed his hit for Today, looking relaxed in jeans, jacket and a bandana.
