If you’re spending time with Charlie Puth, your phone better be on silent!

The “Attention” singer checks his phone occasionally, but warned his fans about becoming too attached to their devices:

“We’re in a world of Facebook and Instagram,” he explained. “If you get a ‘like,’ you get this rush of dopamine to your mind. Social media is important, but we should venture out a little bit and not rely on it for self approval.”

Charlie went on to say that we should learn to appreciate our surroundings and “smell the air in nature.” Smart guy!
