Teen star Jacob Latimore,15, has an album set to debut next year. Latimore recently sat down with Singersroom to discuss his role in Scream Tour 2011 and life as a teen star.
On the Scream Tour.
“Scream Tour’s been going great actually. My first major tour, and I’m just having fun with it.[I’ve learned] Just how hard you really have to work being on tour, and how much work you have to put into it. Overall, it’s nothing that I didn’t expect. Just having fun really.”
On being a teen star.
“I embrace it. I don’t think it’s hard at all, because I’m going down a positive road and it’s pretty easy to encourage other kids. I just have to make sure that the music is having a certain message to it, and not anything that I wouldn’t relate to. I’m just like them so anything I relate to, I know they relate to because they’re around my age. I just have to make sure whatever I’m going through, I share that with them because they might be going through the same thing.”
New television show in 2012?
“It’s called ‘Young Man on Campus’ that BET developed. It’s about a 15-year-old boy in college, just basically dealing with that and being the young guy and trying to roll with the big guys being as smart as him. Basically, like tutoring his cousin in every subject. It’s really fun and I can’t wait to get into the works of that.”
New Years resolutions.
“[I resolve] to do better in math! I suck in math. And I want to just be a better person, and just live life as it goes and accomplish a lot more.”
