I knew I’d do the high stuff, these guys [Justin and JC], would do the leads, Joey would be in the middle and Lance would be the bass. It was a lot easier since we started with a sound rather than five amazing vocalists. I mean not to say we’re not, but I just did."

I feel like Taylor Swift because of my relationship issue. I recently started dating Brian. I thought he was a great guy until his ex-girlfriend contacted me and warned me about the way he treated her and some of his other girlfriends. It wasn't pretty. I read yesterday that Travis Kelce's ex-girlfriend is warning Taylor Swift about the same things I've been warned about. Should I listen to the warnings or form my own opinion? I've never been in a situation like this before. Who should I listen to and what should I do? Is Brian's ex-girlfriend credible? Should I confront him?
