Cody Simpson, the “Adorable Aussie” as we call him, has agreed to give Popdust the low-down on life on the road during his “Welcome to Paradise” tour: The good, the bad, and the breakfast. We’ll be speaking to Cody on the phone and turning his words into daily tour diary entries. We peered into a hectic tour day in Day One and a more relaxed tour day in Day Two. In this, the third and final installment, we see a day that is somewhere in between the two. Crashing weather reports, flirting with Atlanta beauties, and entertaining celebrity guests – All in a day’s work for Cody Simpson.

Girls in Atlanta are really beautiful…
I woke up and had school. I did a lot of mathematics. I don’t like mathematics. And chemistry. No test tubes or anything, it’s all on my laptop, so I don’t have to carry any books. I have a tutor with me, she’s very nice, very chill. She’s not too tough, but a reasonable grader. Like, if I say something that’s wrong, she’s not gonna say that it’s right. Too bad, that, eh?
I had breakfast somewhere in there. Not Special K, if you believe it! Cheerios. NO, WAIT. Toast. With jam. Not ketchup. I’m growing up, I guess.
After that, we were invited to The Weather Channel in Atlanta. They saw me crashing that weather report and asked me to come in and, like, let me be a weatherman for a bit. It is my other pastime, my fallback career. (Don’t quit your day job.) I did and interview, then I read the weather report from Australia. Mild, temperate climate there. So, I crashed another weather report! It’s what I do best.
We had lunch at Willy’s Mexicana Grill. Chicken burrito. No cheese, no guac. I always ask for extra rice. I prefer 20-30 more grains than the normal person. 36 is fine. Jokes.
After lunch, I went to the Ryan Seacrest Foundation at the Atlanta Children’s Hospital. I like anytime I can go somewhere and make people smile. The kids in these hospitals are in a stressful situation that they didn’t ask to be put in, so I make sure I bring smiles. Taking pictures, visiting, chatting. I love making their moms happy, really.
Then, we went to the venue – Center Stage in Atlanta. Did a soundcheck. A little rap this time. I only rap for the band. Listen, I can rap well, but I just don’t wanna do it for anyone. (I guess I just don’t wanna have to prove it…)
We had a VIP meet-n-greet at the venue. I realized something very important: Girls in Atlanta are really beautiful. Like, really beautiful. Like, I was stunned by their beauty. Ok, moving on.
I went backstage and started warming up, stretching, in my tour robe of course.
