“It sucks because I really just want to just scream and cry and sit in my room and just wait for someone to come tell me it’s going to be all good,” Kelly told the outlet of the situation in an article published on Friday. He said his father had grown proud of him for picking up yet another instrument.

“He’s so stoked that I’m playing guitar now,” raved Kelly. “He called me the other day and told me that he’s really starting to enjoy my music. And he’s super proud of me.”
