Arguably because of his OCD tendencies, he gets bored and distracted very quickly. This in turn means he likes to keep things unpredictable when it comes to interviews, with answers often veering off into fantasy. He’s generally known for not taking anything very seriously, and in an early Vevo introductory video interview, when all the other boys explained that they came from Sydney, Australia, Michael insisted he was in fact from ‘Middle-earth, in Narnia’.
