Initially, his show had been planned for 2020, but was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It was one of those last-minute changes to something that Jen and I organized a year ago. And all of a sudden COVID came around. So I thought, why not just give everything I would’ve made back to the MAC?”
