AJ Mitchell Explains Why Social Media Numbers Don't Matter to Him

AJ Mitchell looks so handsome in a photo from his cover shoot with YSBnow, online now!

The 17-year-old opened up about his musical roots, staying true to who he is and social media. Check it:

On his musical upbringing: “I grew up in a musical household. My sisters were always singing and we’d always be harmonizing… [I] hopped on the piano and started playing. [My first song] was called ‘Two Little Birds Falling Out Of A Tree’ – ‘Two birds sitting in a tree, one fell off and broke its knee.’”

On why he doesn’t care about social media numbers: “I have a number on Instagram but that doesn’t mean anything. I’ve always had that number, but I never really saw my fans so when I went on tour and I actually saw my fans in real life, I was like ‘Wow, these people are actually real, and they support me’. Before, it’s all just a number—I just saw names, but I didn’t see those people in real life.”

On being authentic: “I think it’s very important that you stay true to who you are because if you’re trying to be someone else, it’s really obvious—you can see that. And I think don’t think people like that. People like seeing people who are true to themselves and are grounded.”
