The Vine sensation, 16, just released his debut album, Handwritten, and will tour with Taylor Swift this summer

What made you start posting videos on Vine?

I was just bored and wanted to know what my friends thought [of my voice]. I didn’t think I’d become famous from it.

Did your parents worry about your online presence?

They kept an eye on me. But I was never putting anything inappropriate up or that they wouldn’t like.
