Mindless Behavior sat down for an interview with Walmart Soundcheck Risers to talk about their new album ‘#1 Girl’, how they’re just like their fans, how they came up with the group’s name, what their single ‘My Girl’ is about, touring with Justin Bieber, what they like to listen to, and looking up to Michael Jackson.
“When we first joined the group, the four of us just thought that Mindless Behavior meant being mindless and being careless, because a lot of people think that,” group member Princeton explained. “But after they explained the movement to us, it’s just basically being yourself, being who you are, standing up for what you love. Just being confident and loving what you do. So we’re saying we’re being mindless, so the way you dress, the way you act, it’s a lifestyle. We’re just being mindless.”

Prodigy of Mindless Behavior sat down with Vevo Lift while at a photo shoot to talk about his role in the group. “I’m just the laid back one in the group,” he explained. “Just chill.”
As for what spurred his desire to be part of a musical group, Prodigy revealed, “The first time that I knew I wanted to be a performer is when I was 2 years old watching Michael Jackson videos. Watching all his movies and just watching all of his performances.”
Prodigy says during his off time, “I like to hang out with family. Go to the movies. Go go-kart riding, and just be normal.”
As for what he enjoys most about the career, Prodigy said, “My favorite thing is performing for the fans. The fans are #1. We did an in-store at FYE and this girl jumped over the CD rack, and she rolled over and fell on the floor, so I found myself trying to pick her up so I could make sure she was okay, and then she grabbed and thought, this is my chance, I’m gonna go for it. I didn’t even think she knew that she fell, she was just so excited.”

Princeton of Mindless Behavior sat down with Vevo Lift while at a photo shoot to talk about the group. “Being mindless is just being yourself,” he explained. “It’s just a lifestyle. You can life it everyday.”
“I think the best thing about being in a band for me is having good friends and cool brothers,” Princeton said. “I’m an only child, so coming into this group it was cool seeing three boys that love doing exactly what I love to do.”
Princeton added that he’s a big fan of being able to dance with the group. “My favorite part of the process is the choreography,” he said. “Growing up, that’s all I did was dance. I’ve known our choreographer Dave Scott since I was 6, so whenever I went to his masterclasses I always tried to immitate him, so everyone called me Little Dave.
Princeton cited Michael Jackson, Prince, John Lennon and Kurt Cobain as his musical influences, and said the favorite person the group opened for so far is Janet Jackson. “Probably because she’s an icon. She’s inspired a lot of people and she gave us great advice,” Princeton revealed. “She just said stay together and stay humble and you’ll go really far.”

ARTISTdirect.com sat down with the teens from Mindless Behavior for an interview. Ray Ray, Princeton, Prodigy and Roc Royal talked about their song ‘Mrs. Right’ and its accompanying music video, prepping for concerts, and fashion.
“We just practice every day, whether it’s singing one day or working out one day or dancing one day,” Princeton said about their show preparations. “We’re just working eight hours everyday on one thing and at the end of that month, or how long we have to practice, we get ready, and once that day comes we get really nervous, but then the minute we hit that stage, it’s just energy.”
