It’s been a super busy year for Cody, who is now looking forward to some down time down under. HollywoodLife.com has all the EXCLUSIVE details on what the singer has planned for the holidays!
2012 has been an incredible year for Cody Simpson with the huge success of his Paradise tour and his gigs with Justin Bieber. The Aussie says he’s now eager to go back home for Christmas where he can just be a teenager and hit the waves with his surfboard!
HollywoodLife.com spoke to Cody exclusively at the 5th Annual Holiday Tree Lighting at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles on Nov 28, where the singer performed “Jingle Bells.”
“I am going back home for Christmas. I am going to Australia,” Cody told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “I have a week free in my schedule, so I told my manager I am going back home. I haven’t been back since March and last time I was there I was only there for a couple of days.”
“I am really looking forward to surfing, hanging out with my friends and just be a kid again. I know I can always go back there and just be a teenager,” Cody said.
And what else is Cody looking forward to?
“There is something that my Grandma cooks that I am excited about. She cooks this amazing pavlova, it’s like cream and meringue and all these berries. She will cook that up for me, and I will eat the whole thing.”
The inspirational singer also revealed his New Year’s resolutions:
“My New Year’s intentions are to just keep growing as an artist. Last year, it was to do a lot for charity and I was able to do that. I did a lot for anti-bullying. This year, I just want to keep on making great music and inspiring people.”
Cody, who is a delight to speak with and incredibly polite and sweet, credits his father for being his mentor.
“My dad is just incredible. He is always reminding me to do my very best and treat people the way I would want to be treated. I may be a celebrity, but I am first and foremost a person. I am grateful to have such wonderful parents and such a close, supportive family.”
We hope Cody has a fun time back home. Happy Holidays Cody!
