Most people know Charlie Puth from his song "See You Again" with Wiz Khalifa written for the Fast and Furious 7 movie to honor the late Paul Walker. This isn't surprising considering it was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 12 weeks straight. You can hear his current single "Marvin Gaye" ft. Meghan Trainor on the radio now! Let's learn ten fun facts about the New Jersey singer that makes us swoon.
1. Ellen DeGeneres Signed Him
Charlie put up a cover of him singing Adele's "Someone Like You" that got a lot of attention. So much attention that Ellen DeGeneres called him up and wanted to sign him to her record label. What did he do? He hung up the phone! Charlie thought someone was pranking him. It turned out not to be a joke, and he did get signed to her label, eleveneleven.
2. He Loves Lean Cuisine
Or really any microwave foods. He loves microwave pizza and Lean Cuisine- the chicken sesame entree is his favorite. He loves it so much, he even bought Ryan Seacrest Lean Cuisine's and made them in the microwave for him at the studio!
3. He Has Perfect Pitch
No really! If someone taps something like a glass, or plays any note on an instrument he knows immediately what key it's in. Perfect pitch is a talent Charlie was born with, and he learned he had it when he stepped up as a child played the whole church sermon from memory.
4. He Has A Scar From A Dog
When Charlie was two years old he was attacked dog and that is where he got his permanent scar on his eyebrow from the stitches. We think it gives him character!
5. He's A Nerd
In high school, Charlie never went to parties. Instead, he stayed home and coded software for computers in his bedroom. He says he had "no social life, just computers." So cute!
6. He's Incredibly Smart
Charlie graduated from one of the most prestigeous music schools in the country, Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship. 99 Berklee alumni have accumulated 229 Grammy Awards.
7. He's An Introvert
You might not know it, but Charlie actually says he is an introvert and very shy. How cute!
8. He Started On YouTube
In 2009 Charlie started his YouTube channel, CharliesVlogs. Our Second Life fans might remember his voice from singing the O2L theme song (all the feels).
9. He's A Producer
A singer, writer, and producer! Charlie has produced music for Jason Derulo and Trey Songz. He enjoys working with other artists and actually suggested Wiz Khalifa for the rapper on the song "See You Again".
10. He watches Keeping Up With The Kardashians
Celebs, they're just like us. They like reality TV too! He says he will just leave E! Entertainment on in the background of his home and admits Kourtney is his favorite Kardashian.
