“I resented that somebody got a picture of it by spying on me,” he said of a paparazzi photo of his full-color phoenix back tattoo, which covers his back.

“It felt invasive. But you’re right. I could have said, ‘That’s none of your business.’ I guess I got a kick out of messing with Extra. ‘Is your tattoo real or not real?’ Of course, it’s real! No, I put a fake tattoo on my back and then hid it,” he went on to say of his 2016 interview with Mario Lopez, in which he said it was fake.

He also revealed “the biggest regret” of his life during the interview. Find out what it is!
