“I’m doing photo shoots, fashion shows, appearances. In the fall, I’m going out to Milan for his fashion show. It’s going to be nice going overseas. I have to get my passport. I’m kind of nervous though.”

“I want to rock the clothes so we can grow together as a team…Charging One-Way” and his signature spin move.
Miller had this to say about what keeps him motivated:
“I don’t like failing…That’s what keeps me motivated. I’ve always been a person that’s been different. When I have a vision, I go and get it. That’s what keeps me motivated — not failing at whatever I do. I just want to be successful so I can be comfortable when I go to sleep.”
