The boys of Big Time Rush have been busy touring acrossCanadathis past month, but Kendall Schmidt still had time to chat to KW. Find out more in our Kendall Schmidt Q&A!
KW: You just played a show in Montreal, what did you think of your fans in Montreal?
Kendall: I was blown away by the Canadian bands and
it was kind of cool since we don’t speak much French at all, so it was
KW: We all know on the show you play characters named
after yourself, what is the main difference between Kendall on the show
and Kendall in real life, and what is like having an alter ego?
Kendall: It’s really interesting, you know the show
is completely fictional but there is us in those characters, I’m a
little more laid back than Kendall on the show.
KW: Your story is kind of like a fairytale, what kind of advice do you have for other people who want that kind of success?
Kendall: For me professionally, all 4 us had
different situations, I grew up acting and music came later into my life
and I had probably been to 4000 auditions before I hit Big Time Rush,
and once I got that my whole life changed but I just think work hard and
your life can change.
KW: You are 4 guys in the same group, how do you get along? What is the best quality of the group?
Kendall: I think the great thing we have is that we are all passionate about what we’re doing, and our performances really show heart.
KW: How do you have a normal life being young and famous?
Kendall: I get up every morning and shower andbrush my teeth, I don’t feel or act that different than I did before.
KW: How involved did you guys get in the writing of the upcoming album?
Kendall: The last one we were writing and
collaborating and getting as much of ourselves in the songs as possible,
we have lots of involvement and hopefully the third album will show
KW: What characteristics do you think people need for success in this business?
Kendall: One if you’re talking about singing there
are a lot of great singers in the world, and I think if anything people
who are famous are more than just good singers, they have to do
something different and have a concept of who they are.
KW: What is the most important thing you’ve learned since starting out in the band
Kendall: I have learned a lot of really cool stuff, but for me having the opportunity to go on vacation, learn how to board, I’ve learned how to keep a crowd entertained and how to keep people happy.
KW: How do you see the band growing in the future?
Kendall: I think a lot of our young fans watch the TV show so things will happen there and obviously the music will evolve.
