The inevitable comparisons to Justin Bieber don’t seem to bother Austin Mahone too much. Austin tells MTVnews:
“I mean, it’s flattering. It’s not that bad of a thing. It’s cool because he’s such an inspiration to me and he’s so successful, and I just hope that I’ll be as successful as him someday.”
The comparisons do, however, bother many Mahomies (Austin Mahone’s fans). A 14-year-old Maggie Benzenhafer tells MTVnews as she waited Austin on Time Square in NYC:
“People say that Austin is the new Justin Bieber — I don’t think that at all. I think Austin’s going to be the new Austin Mahone.”
