Cody Simpson was spotted as he hit a Grammy after-party in West Hollywood, Calif. on Sunday (February 10). The singer was dressed in a casual Marc Jacobs suit, and earlier in the day the designer tweeted about dressing Cody for the occasion. “Our friend @CodySimpson stopped the LA store for his #Grammys look. Good luck Cody!”
Later, Cody wrote about being part of the big night:
“what a night at the Grammys. a kid from the beach with a dream, & the hard work has put me here – so very grateful”
The teen heartthrob is about to kick off his first UK/European tour, and in a recent interview he talked about his journey to stardom that began with posting videos of himself singing when he was just 12-years old. “Putting my music on YouTube was something that I was just doing for fun, and I never expected that it would lead to me going to America,” Cody told the Australian Times. “I met with Atlantic Records, my current record label, on my 13th birthday actually and since then it has all been a whirlwind.”
The now 16-year-old also remembers being conflicted when he was told he would have to move to the U.S. to pursue his dream. “It was a difficult decision because I have a younger brother and sister and I didn’t want to drag them across the world for my career,” he said.
“I have always had a really good relationship with my family though, and they made it 100% clear that they supported me and thought that it was something that we should do.”View Slideshow »»
