So here it is, the interview in its entirety, courtesy of Hollywood Dame.

When did you realize you had an interest in music and what sparked that interest?

It started when I was really young, I think about 5 or 6. But it’s only gotten serious and I’ve gotten ideas in my head just recently. It pretty much started when I saw Lady Gaga perform at the VMA’s.

What has it been like to go from playing in front of your school to basically becoming a household name overnight?

It’s been an amazing journey. Really fun. Something I will always remember. It’s really a dream come true for me. It’s been great.

What are some of your plans for promoting your music and upcoming album?

I think we’re going to do the radio thing. I’m pretty excited about that. And we have a trip to Europe coming up soon. Recording the album is such an exciting process and it’s coming along great. It’s sounding really good.

What are some of your short term and long term goals that you have lined out for yourself?

My main goal is to just be myself and to stay grounded. My longterm goal is to make a career out of this. Ride the wave as long as possible.

What drives and inspires you to do what you love?

I think my inspiration to get up in the morning and go is my fans. They’ve supported me throughout this entire journey and have been there for me. They have been my support system and what makes me want to get up in the morning and do it all.

How do you balance a career and going to school while still trying to be a kid?

Well, when I’m home and with family or I visit my friends I’m just Greyson. I have a good balance between them. This year I’m actually going to be doing online school, so that will be a bit different. I think its an easy thing for me because of my parents, especially my mom, who still grounds me and takes away my computer and stuff when I’m in trouble.

Do you find it easy to play the piano and sing? Does it come naturally for you?

It comes naturally to me. About a year and a half ago I started singing and playing the piano and it opened a huge door for me that I never even knew was there.

What kind of music can we expect from you off your upcoming album?

It’s an interesting sound. Kinda a rock sense, so I’d have to say its a rock album.

If you had the chance to work with or record with anyone, who would you choose?

Lady Gaga. It would be amazing. She is great.

Besides music, what are some of your favorite things to do?

I like to play soccer. I like to watch movies, especially old time movies. But overall its soccer.

Lisa Chance, Greyson’s mother commented during the interview about how Greyson has always been destined for this, saying, “He’s always sung… Loud. Anywhere. We hear it all the time.”  Lisa also mentioned again about the fact that Greyson had never taken a formal voice lesson, “He literally just listens to a song and instantly knows what he wants to do with it” she added.

Tanner Chance, Greyson’s brother said Greyson just, “feels it”.

Greyson Chance Spills the Beans about “Broken Hearts”

Greyson Chance recently stopped by the BOP and Tiger Beat offices and gave them the low down about his original song, “Broken Hearts“.

For those unfamiliar with BOP and Tiger Beat, they publish a celebrity news magazine and also have tons of online content available through their website.  After Greyson’s visit they said he was the “biggest sweetheart” and “so cute” in person.  Although the published interview is relatively short, we do learn what “Broken Hearts” is all about!  You can checkout a video of Greyson’s visit at the bottom of this article, we’ve also transcribed the interview below for your convenience.

Greyson: Hey BOP and Tiger Beat, it’s Greyson Chance and so I think a lot of people want to know if I write songs about girls.  The only song i’ve written about a girl is actually “Broken Hearts”, that’s the only one.
BOP: What did you write the song about?
Greyson: I wrote it about two girls that kind of kicked me to the curb, it’s just kind of me venting, that’s all.
BOP: Do they know it’s about them?
Greyson: Actually I haven’t talked to them in a long, long, long time, so I really don’t know.

If you haven’t logged on to BOP and Tiger Beat’s website before, it has some awesome celebrity gossip that is definitely worth checking out!  One of their other recent stories which caught my attention was a hand drawn picture of Greyson Chance’s idol, Lady Gaga!
