MAN:
E, E, E, E, E.

Then I would go to, like, a G. And

these are all just power chords.

Hey, how you doing? You're tuned

in to Style Boyz television.

I'm just sparking up.

Style Boyz radio hour.

Sparking up this French fry.

K-F-F-F-R.

I am French Fry Guy.

Hello.

No! French Fry Guy!

I am French Fry Guy.

Not again!

LAWRENCE:
Cut!

Yeah!

Style Boyz.

(SINGING) Me likey that

When a genie grants wishes

About girls blowing kisses

And your momma doing dishes

Me likey that

CONNER:
Okay.

Where to start?

Ever since I was born,

I was dope.

TILLY:
Honey.

(PLAYING DRUMS)

Oh, my gosh, sweetie!

CONNER:
I loved music,

and as soon as I could,

I started a band with my two

best friends, Owen and Lawrence.

The Style Boyz.

Right away, people noticed us

because our lyrics were beautiful

and insightful, poetic even.

(SINGING) You're a motherf*cking,

titty-sucking Two-bailed bitch

With a popcorn pussy

And a full-on dick

Style Boyz in the house

And we give a f*ck

So whip out your nuts

And shut the f*ck up...

QUESTLOVE:
The thing

about the Style Boyz

is that their chemistry and their

friendship was really authentic.

You know, you could tell that they

were really friends with each other.

They were hot.

(CHUCKLES)

CONNER:
Before you knew it,

we signed with a major label

and put out our first

single, Karate Guy.

One, two, three, four.

(SINGING) I like to kick

it, I'm a karate guy

Kiya, Kiya

Kiya...

Karate Guy?

Are you kidding me, man?

That song changed my Ne.

Now I'm in a cowboy hat

ALL:
(SINGING)

Yee-haw, yee-haw

Now I'm in a cowboy hat

ALL:
(SINGING)

Yee-haw, yee-haw

Now I'm in three cowboy hats

ALL:
(SINGING)

Yee-haw

USHER:
Kid Contact. He handled

the beats and the music.

Kid Brain, you know,

he did all the lyrics.

And then, Conner,

he was the charismatic one.

The one who brought it

all together.

You tell me you didn't see him

and say, "Yo, he's the star."

CONNER:
Things definitely

started to get complicated.

I couldn't help it

if the world chose me.

PHOTOGRAPHER:

Take one.

You want me to look here?

Pretty funny, right?

(LAUGHING)

CONNER:
Be original.

Be fearless.

I love my White Butt Jeans.

As my star kept burning

brighter, some stood by me.

Others couldn't take the heat.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

CONNER:
We broke up

the next day.

I went solo,

and Owen became my DJ.

Lawrence quit

the music biz altogether.

And our DJ, Francis, moved

to Japan to hunt dolphins,

like a dickhead.

But it turned out all of that

was just a blessing in disguise

because it turned me into

Conner4Real-(LAUGHING)

I dropped my first album. And

what can I say? It was a smash.

And I owed it all to my fans,

who I share everything with.

Yo, brushing my teeth.

Yo, I just ate a taco.

It's Conner's Confessions,

hoverboard edition. (LAUGHS)

Oh, f*ck.

(GRUNTS)

(CHUCKLES)

Dude.

Yo, just got my butt waxed.

That shit hurt.

(LAUGHS)

He's painfully honest with his fans,

probably too honest, really, like...

But they love him for it.

Yo, just jacked it.

Um... Feeling pretty

mellow right now.

Doink de doink.

ALL:
Doink de doink.

Doink de doink.

I think he's incredible.

He really is the real deal.

CONNER:
My fans and me, we're in love.

(GLASS SHATTERS)

My songs are love letters,

and the arena is our bedroom.

The stage...

The stage is where we f*ck.

(VOCALIZING)

(CROWD CHEERING)

Watch out Watch out...

It's Conner!

(SINGING) Bar none,

I am the most humblest

Number one at the top

of the humble list

My apple crumble is by far

The most crumblest

But I act like it tastes

bad out of humbleness
