The 24-year-old musician, who also became famous through his Awkward Puppets comedy show, opens up about how they became friends.
“We just became good friends, and kind of organically, our brains meshed because we’re both creative, and I was fond of his skill and he of mine, and we just almost accidentally created this friendship and partnership,” Rudy told People. “My friendship with Justin, I’ve treated it as any other close friendship I have. To be quite honest, I don’t have a lot of close friends, and I actually would consider Justin to be one of those friends, and it’s only because pretty much after the first time we hung out a couple years ago, he wasn’t anything more than ‘that cool kid Justin with a good heart.’ That was it; it was just easy. It’s like hanging out with a buddy. He’s just a good, talented friend.”
As for what he’ll do on stage, Rudy said, “It’s gonna be a little bit of a surprise. I’m gonna try to do something new, but I can tell you that’s it’s gonna be very different, and it’s not gonna be your average opening act. I’m not saying it’s comedy or music or both — but it’s definitely a one-man show, and I’m attempting something I’ve never done before.”
Justin was with best friend and videographer Alfredo Flores when he jumped on IG Live and started answering questions.
“Favorite song at the moment? Umm,” Justin repeats the question and then pauses. “‘Starboy’ by The Weeknd.” And then breaks out in laughter.

The 22-year-old singer never intended to attend tonight’s show.
Reportedly, Justin is not happy with the way the Grammys work, so he decided to no-show, despite his album, Purpose, getting four nominations this year.
So where is he spending the evening?
At famed sushi restaurant Sugarfish.
Clad in a yellow hoodie, Justin posted a video that flashes across his face and a plate of yummy looking food on his Instagram story, just days after he made his Instagram return nearly six months after his last post.
