That 5ive Feeling

When was the last time you cried?
Yesterday. I was really stressed out. I decided to go for a walk and I ended up sitting on a park bench. I was about 10 minutes away from home and there was nobody around, so I just sat there and had a cry, but as soon as I started crying it started raining and I was like, 'Noooooo! It can't get worse!' By the time I walked home I was soaked, drenched and really depressed. It's just it all gets on top of me sometimes, but I feel better now. I sound like a manic depressive, don't it?! 'When was the last time you cried?' ' Last night!'

What stresses you out, then?
Absolutely everything. Work stresses me out mainly. That's why it's nice having a girlfriend - it's someone to talk to. I talk to my mum as well - she sorts me out. Sometimes I'd like to go back to being normal again. None of it seems worth it, then I wake up in the morning and think, 'Of course it is.'

What's the worst thing about being a pop star?
Sometimes when I see my friends I feel stranger to some of them, and I don't like it at all.

How old do you think you'll be when you get married?
Oooh, I don't want to get married too soon. I don't know. (How much do you wanna bet he marries Danielle?) I think I'd like to have kids in my 20s because then you're still young but quite mature, but the thought of getting married scares me, so I can't really answer that question.

Do you think you'll make a good dad?
Yeah. Big time. No, actually I won't because I'll probably spoil them so much. When they're little I'll give them everything they want - why not? I've got three little cousins and whenever I go into Hamleys I'm like, 'I want that, I want that!' I love buying things for people because to me money's just paper and life's all about having fun.

Are you a very generous person, then?
Yeah. Like, if I got a pair of trousers or a top or something from this shoot, I'd go round to my cousins, and I haven't got a rich family or anything, and say, 'I've got a cool pair of trousers, do you want them?' And he'd be, like, over the moon. My mum tells me to stop, but I can't.

What would you call your kids?
I don't know. I kind of like exotic names for girls, but I've never really given it much thought. I think I'd decide after the baby is born, you know - wait and see what it looked like!

Where do you think you'll live when you "grow up"?
Somewhere quiet and away from everything out in the countryside. I've got a friend who lives right out in the sticks and there are trees, lakes and everything. I love going there.

What makes you sad?
Loads of stuff. I get sad when I see homeless people and I always give them my change. I get sad when I see little kids with their dads - I think it's really sweet, but it makes me sad as well as happy! Sometimes I get sad when I see old men (eh?), I think, ' He looks nice' (is Abs' trying to tell us something here?) then I get sad cos he's old. I don't like seeing people getting bullied - that makes me sad.

What do you daydream about?
I've been daydreaming a lot the last couple of months. Every now and then I'll just go into a stare - people will be talking to me, but I won't notice. The other day I was daydreaming about the Oscars and I was standing right next to Jack Nicholson!

Is there anyone you hate so much you'd like to punch them?
I don't dislike anyone enough to punch them. I think everyone's alright, everyone's cool. I'm not, "I love the world" - it's just I haven't got any reason to hate anyone. And I'm not a fighting kind of guy.

What's your worst quality?
I walk away from things too much. Like, say I was in a car with someone and they were talking about something and I said, 'I don't want to talk about it anymore,' and they carried on, I'd just get out of the car and walk off. That's happened a few times, and as I'm walking away I'm thinking, 'I should just get back in that car...' but I can't, so I keep walking. Once I got stuck on a motorway and my cousin was shouting at me out of the window, but I ignored him, so he drove off and I was like, 'What do I know?'

What's the nicest thing someone can say to you?
Anything. If someone says, 'Your trainers are cool,' I'll be on a high all day because I've got these trainers someone likes!! Even if someone says my skin's looking good, I'll walk round all pleased with myself.

Have you got any photos in your wallet?
Yep. I've got one of the band, one of my girlfriend, one of my cousin Izzy, and this doesn't really count, but I carry a picture of my favourite car as well!

When are you happiest?
When things are bought for me - I love getting presents. I'm happy when I'm with my family and friends - and if one of them's bought me a present, even better!

When did you notice you had chest hairs?
I'm not sure...Actually I shave my chest! I have done for a while cos I don't want to be like my dad - he's so hairy, it's all over his hands, just everywhere. He should have been in Gorilla In The Mist! I started shaving my face when I was 13 cos my Aunt told me I had a bit of bum-fluff (ie. hair under his lip!) on my top lip!
