Topic: The superstar performer writes about what he has been up to lately. Most of his posts are images, sometimes personal photos, that he deems worthy of noting.

Posted Wednesday: "If there's anything my mom taught me is to enjoy life. I just recorded my first verse in the last 6 months 2 days ago at Bape's Studio in Japan. It felt good and I was inspired. … I am a total mad man now, up till 3 am every night, trying 2 fight pain, board-um, and uncertainty with creativity. All that said, life is good..... good as finding the perfect fabric for a simple one button casual blazer with matching pants."

I've never felt so happy and in love, he's such an amazing guy and life has never been better! :) It's so much fun going to their shows every night, I now know every song by heart. I love Good Charlotte, they rock!! All the guys in the band are so cool and sweet."

Right after last night's results show, we ran up to wardrobe to begin working on our outfits. Since the Samba is the dance of Brazil and Carnival, we want to reflect that in the clothes. The hotter the better!"
