Here is what James had to say:

Your life has probably changed a lot since news came out you are dating Kristen Doute of 'Vanderpump Rules." Are the fans going crazy?

Well, I wouldn't go that far and say my life has completely changed after getting with Kristen, I definitely will say that I'm having the time of my life with her. Fans of the show are certainly shocked. It's a good mix between positive and negative feedback, at the end of the day haters exist but it doesn't phase me one bit.

You work at SUR as well. How long have you been there and is there any chance of seeing you on an upcoming season of the show?

I've been working at SUR for about 8 months now. As for season 3, it hasn't yet been 100% confirmed yet so I'm going to have to wait and see. I'm sure they will get picked up though considering the reunion was the highest rated episode ever I believe.

Are you still working with Tom Sandoval on music or is that over?

No, I'm definitely not working on music with Tom Sandoval anymore. I feel like as a music producer that he was completely fixated on the fact he had songs that he wrote over a decade ago and expects me to basically produce them for him. It was a DUO not a single act, however I always felt like it was all about him and his general idea of how the music should if been when it wasn't, it was about us creating something new and original, not something that sounded like a horrible 80's band haha

Tell fans a little about yourself.

As for me I was born and raised in London, UK. I moved to Ibiza, Spain at the age of fifteen where I discovered EDM (Electronic Dance Music). I then moved to Los Angeles as a music producer/DJ where I have been touring with some of the worlds biggest acts, Eric Prydz, Porter Robinson, Steve Aoki. I've focused pretty much all my time working in the studio and generating a sound of my own, I absolutely love what I do and nothing could make me happier than doing just that. As an extra money maker on since music doesn't do it all yet, I do some male modeling as well as work at SUR.

Where can your fans check out your music?

My fans can check out all my music on Sound Cloud. It can also be found on iTunes, YouTube and Spotify!

Is your Twitter the best way to connect with you?

I would say Twitter is for sure the best way to connect with me @jam3sk3nn3dy, I am also on Instagram "jameskennedymusic"

Don't miss part two of the "Vanderpump Rules" reunion on Monday February 17 on Bravo.
