There is nothing more awesome than being yourself.
[on touring with his two brothers,(Ross Lynch, Rocky Lynch) sister,(Rydel Lynch) and family friend(Ellington Ratliff) as 'R5'] There's definitely moments here and there where we'll be rehearsing and we'll disagree about playing this song first, or closing with that song, and it will turn into a mini argument. But most of the time we're all actually pretty good with each other and all get along.
