He said his college GPA was 4.0, while his high school GPA was 5.45.

  1. dude talking about his kid side lol then you’re not a kid fam your just an underage adult

  2. Having a extremely high iq doesn’t mean they have more singing talent than jose jose, luis miguel, Elvis Presley & frank Sinatra: your singing ability has nothing to do with high intelligence. You be average intelligence yet the greatest singer in the world. A singer like luis miguel comes once every 1000 years

  3. He lept over his childhood into upper academia. Good luck Mike. You’ll be entering shark infested waters at such a young emotional age. Parents, please prepare him.
