During a fashion magazine interview he said that the thing he regrets the most in his life is dropping out of high school. He said, "I think it would have been okay even if I didn't (drop out)." He later amended how this was said due to it seeming he made a mistake attending SMI, and a tweet was uploaded on February 19th. 2013.
