If you don't know the name Vance Joy, that's going to change real soon. Not only is the handsome Aussie the voice of hits like "Riptide," "Mess is Mine," and new single "Fire and the Flood," he's been traveling the world as the opening act on Taylor Swift's epic 1989 tour.
Since he's in Los Angeles to attend the Video Music Awards — he's nominated for Artist to Watch, which you can vote for here — Vance stopped by BuzzFeed LA and played a little game of "Mess is Mine/Mess is Yours."
Let's get started!
1. They don't share the same taste in music as you.
Vance Joy: That's OK, I can deal with that.
2. They don't want to hang out with your friends.
Vance: I think that would be a dealbreaker because I'm personally always talking about my friends. If I'm seeing a girl, I'll tell her how great my friends are so I guess she has to deal with that.
3. They barely text you at all and can go for days without communicating.
4. They're attached to their phones at all times.
Vance: Look if it was just that one thing — I can accept that.
5. They talk about their exes all the time.
Vance: Especially early on because you go through that jealousy phase when things just make you insanely jealous. It's OK... eventually.
6. They want to introduce you to their parents after the first date.
7. They're rude to waiters.
Vance: That's maybe a true indication of someone's personality.
8. They’re a super health nut who hates junk food.
Vance: They hate junk food?! [Shows "MESS IS YOURS"]. I have a sweet tooth.
9. They're your number one fan.
Vance: Definitely. It's too hard 'cause they think you're one thing and you might be another thing.
10. They're constantly late.
Vance: I'm a late person so in that instance, I'll be the early person.
11. They're pretty sloppy drunks who just can't hang.
12. Their family is really overbearing.
13. They have bad taste in movies.
Vance: You know, I've had instances where I've walked out of movies and I've loved it and the person I'm with is like, "That was the worst movie ever" and I'm just like, far out I'm making some serious judgements about you right now.
14. They hate vegemite.
Vance: It's fine!
