What was the concept behind the photo shoot?
Well it was a Derek Blanks shoot. He does a lot of alter ego stuff. So we liked the idea of us showing the other side to Dawn and Que. Like the heavenly and devilish looks or the lustful and innocent side to us. The purest part of our love. It was easy because our love is REAL. We were just being ourselves. The kissing and deep looks is what we do on a normal basis. People don’t believe its real because we met on Making The Band but it is real. It’s impossible to fake how much we're in love.
Well you are pretty tatted up..
Yes I am, I love artwork. I like to be in my own world and express who I am. All my tattoos mean something to me and they all tie together in their own way. Some people get tattoos cause they look cool I get them because of my love for art.
Speaking of love and tattoos, whose lips are those on your neck?
I figured I would get Dawn's lips because she will be mine forever and I’m hers forever, so why not? It's the best example of how honest I am in my relationship and about our love. Her lips and her name is an example to others that it’s ok to love your girl. It’s an example on how to be honest. I actually got her name when we started getting serious , so I had that way before the lips on my neck. I’m sure there will be more tattoos to come.
With all the celebrity break ups and hook ups. What do you think makes your relationship different? Why did you decide to go public instead of hiding your relationship?
It is what it is. I have to be real with myself. Whatever is meant to happen will happen. But our relationship is built off of trust, honesty, and love. It’s definitely that fairytale ending that people don’t believe in anymore. There's no hiding that. There’s no point in fronting when you are happy.
How do you handle growing stardom and growing love all at once?
Work is work and play is play. Fortunately for us we work together so I get to do both.
What’s your advice to other young men your age still single and playing the field?
If you want to be a better person you have to “ be honest with yourself and it ‘s ok to be in love and be proud to love your girl”. You don’t have to cheat because people tell you it’s not cool to be with one person. If you’re happy, do you. When you love yourself others will see that in you and do the same. They have no choice but to respect it.
