Teenager Liam McBride, who is known as ‘the diamonds guy’, is ‘truly, truly proud’ that his father, Michael McBride Jr., had the privilege of being awarded the prestigious Diamond Jubilee Medal at a special ceremony held in his honour at the Royal Academy of Arts.
‘He’s so proud of me for being so proud,’ he told MTV News.
‘I’m so happy that I got to have this medal.’
Liam said his father was very proud of him for getting a diamond on his wrist for his 25th birthday, and the fact that he had the chance to give a diamond to his sister, who was the recipient of the award in the UK at the time.
‘She was so proud to get the medal and be recognised by Michael,’ Liam said.
‘Michael said, ‘Congratulations, Liam, you got a diamond’.’
I said, “Well, that’s nice, thanks for the medal”.’
And he said, and I was like, “What?”
And he said to me, “Congratulations on your birthday, Liam.”‘
And I was just like, I’ve got my dad’s medal.’
‘I just wanted to celebrate it with my friends and my family, and it’s just the way it is.’
Liam, who now lives in California, said he was also ‘very proud’ for the ‘very, very high’ level of support his father received.
‘It was amazing, because I was always kind of the only one that was like ‘I don’t get it, I can’t believe this’.’
It was really, really cool, to be able to have people around you who were like, ‘Oh, you’re the biggest fan of Michael McBrides, you should be in his band’, and I think that’s a really big thing.
‘And I feel really, very, very proud for my dad, because he has the privilege to get a diamond for his birthday, so it was really special for him.
‘People will always know me by the ring.’
Liam is a singer and rapper who recently released a music video for his song, ‘The Diamonds’, which is now available for free download.
He also revealed that he is planning on releasing another song in the coming months titled ‘The First’, which will be his first single for a long time.
Liam is currently promoting his new album, which he says will be ‘bigger than the last album’, in the US.
The new album will be released on November 23 and will feature a new track, ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, which was originally released on the album, ‘No More’.
Liam also shared his thoughts on the current political climate in the United States and his relationship with President Donald Trump.
‘This is not a time for the United Kingdom to be a safe haven,’ he said.
Liam said he has been ‘very shocked’ by the news of President Donald J. Trump’s presidency, and that his relationship has been strained by the current state of affairs.
‘Obviously I don’t agree with him, but I just have to deal with it,’ he added.
‘If he gets elected and he keeps doing this, I just can’t take it.
‘But I’ve never been a big fan of his, and my relationship with him has been so bad that it’s really tough for me.
‘My relationship with Donald Trump has been really bad for a very long time, and we haven’t really spoken for a while.’
Liam has also recently launched his own music project, entitled The Diamonds Guy, which features the likes of Jaden Smith, Macklemore, Travi$ Scott, and Lil Wayne.
Liam has released an album of songs, including ‘Lonely,’ which he recorded in New York and is currently touring the United State with his new band.
‘Loners are a little bit of an outcast,’ Liam added.
The Diamond Jubilees are awarded annually to honour the achievements of young people who have achieved outstanding achievements in their chosen field of study.
‘A lot of people are really surprised when they hear the word ‘diamond’ because I have never been one of them, so that’s something that is really hard for me,’ Liam explained.
‘Even when I was a little kid, I was not allowed to buy my own diamonds, so I would just go to the local gem store and buy my diamonds, and they would sell them to me for five bucks, so they would tell me ‘no you’re not getting your own diamonds’.
‘I was always a little boy, and so it really shocked me to hear that my father had to do this.’
Liam added that he was ‘so happy to be here in New Zealand, and just to be at the royal academy’ where his father has received the award.
‘The Royal Academy is such a special place, it’s so special for my father,’ Liam
