Unless you spent your whole Christmas with your head in a mince pie, you'll be more than a little aware of *THAT* naked cover and interview 5SOS did for Rolling Stone magazine, which taught us a lot and led to Justin Bieber saying some words on Twitter.

WELL, Rolling Stone have now released a follow-up to said interview, presenting us with: '21 things you learn hanging out with 5SOS'.

This could be the most important lesson of our lives (apart from all that algebra obviously, which we've used approximately zero times since we learnt it), mainly because it's the closest we're ever going to get to spending an entire week with Michael Clifford, Ashton Irwin, Calum Hood and Luke Hemmings.

There's loads of stuff crammed in, starting with the boys seeing Green Day as 'the ultimate', and agreeing with Billie Joe Armstrong on not wanting to be described as a 'pop-rock' band, with Calum saying: "It's just as isolating as being called a boy band, you know, being [called] a pop-punk band.

"I don't want to make just one type of music. I really want to evolve as a band with our sound. Bands like U2 have songs which are almost completely different genres, and that's what I love."

Then there's their plans for their Sounds Live Feels Live tour, with Ashton admitting: "You go out there and play a few songs and then you go out there and do an encore. I want to do something cooler.

"Maybe start out with 'Carry On' and end with 'Carry On' and then maybe try some different things, take inspiration from Queen and use some piano. I just want to make it cooler and make it challenging. I got bored of the show last year. After 70 times, I was like, 'Ah ...' I loved it, I loved the fans there and the energy of the show, but it wasn't really challenging."

Michael, who played guitar in the church band, also revealed that he'd love to be able to sit down and talk to the band's fans, saying: "Usually it's like, take a picture first and then sign. I can understand why, but I wish the dynamic was that you can go out and talk to fans. It's so f**king interesting if you can sit down for just five minutes and have a conversation. It would be so sweet."

Mikey also cleared up all that stuff about Taylor Swift supposedly blocking his phone number, adding: "I said that and everyone freaked out. I texted her for a bit one day, and then I just never texted her again.

"I was like, 'Nice party.' [She said,] 'Yeah, thanks.' 'How are you?'. [She's] so ridiculously famous. We can't be friends with people that famous. It doesn't really work."

There's LOADS more in there, including the boys getting used to people 'wanting to cut them down', nuggets of joy from touring with One Direction, Ashton Irwin explaining how he relates to 'Broken Home' and the band revealing that they want to address current events in their music following the horrific Paris attacks, with Ashton saying:

"We have such a voice; how do you sooth people? I've been thinking of how to do it well. I don't want it to be cheesy. I don't want it to be, just getting on board with it. It needs to be real. I just haven't had the right idea yet. This band is going to write about it. We're going to write about it. Everything is so f**ked up at the moment. We have so many young fans that have never experienced anything like this [the Paris attacks] in their life. They have never seen anything like this. It's new to them, so it's up to us to articulate to them because we are the voice of the culture. We are the voice to these people, these young people. We have to get it right, we need to articulate ourselves really f**king well. We'll get it right, man, it just takes some time."

So there you go. Thoughts on this follow-up piece? Let us know with a tweet to@Sugarscape.
