Why he might be annoying
He was kicked out of his college (RISD) after his freshman year.
In college, he did a performance art where he had his beard and head shaved while an accordionist played and a women held up cue cards in Russian.
Even he doesn't understand what he is doing.
He said: 'I can't really hype my own record, or begin to tell what the songs mean, or why I wrote them.'
Why he might not be annoying
He is left handed.
He said, for the amount of money you pay art schools, it just isn't worth it.
He said: 'I want to move people to dance and cry at the same time.'
