How many 22-year-olds do you know who can claim to be the proud uncle of a pet pig and the proud owner of two BMWs?

Well, there’s Big Time Rush lead singer Kendall Schmidt, who’s been spotted in Los Angeles walking brother Kevin’s pig. Yuma. Though these days, Kendall is driving around windows down in his shiny new BMW.

The “Windows Down” singer purchased a glacier silver metallic 2013 BMW Hybrid 3 on Tuesday. The sports car costs over $64,000, and as a testament to the boy band’s commercial success, this is Schmidt’s second BMW.

A source close to Schmidt told Celebuzz the singer chose the BMW Hybrid because it was eco-friendly. Schmidt originally eyed another luxury vehicle, but his father Kent Schmidt was on hand to steer his son in the right direction. Schmidt also took the time to pose with his young fans before speeding off in his new ride.

Schmidt is so passionate about environmental issues, he recently teamed up with his brothers Kenneth and Kevin to launch, a site designed to educate the public on the commercial food production system known as Aquaponics. He even wrote a letter to First Lady Michelle Obama asking for her support.

“The traditional method of food production — farming outside cities and trucking it all in — seems to make less and less sense as transport costs increase,” Schmidt told Celebuzz in September. “Plus, there’s the nutrient loss to consider.”
