Austin Mahone Annoyed Being Compared to Justin Bieber: “It’s Obnoxious”


Austin Mahone is over the Justin Bieber comparisons. He is annoyed that he’s always compared to Justin! Austin recently spoke up in an interview with ABC News about how he’s trying to set himself and his music apart from Justin.

Austin said of the comparisons:

I can kind of see where they’re coming from, but at the same time, it’s kind of obnoxious. They see a young kid who sings and dances and … they’re like, “Oh another Justin Bieber.” Like, you don’t even know. You don’t know me. You don’t know my music. You’re just making assumptions.

I may not be the best dancer or the best performer right now, but I’m always getting better. Next year I’ll be even better than I am now. And the year after that, I’ll just keep getting better.

I’m sure when it hits me, it’ll hit me.

  • EmmaBieberxoxo

    Hes not trying to be like Justin

    • Lailani

      There taste is different. Both are talented and super hot.

  • Alee

    He is talented in his own way but if he doesn’t want people to think of him as justin bieber then don’t do things that remind us of justin like music videos and songs and dance moves

    • stringbiebs

      Never once did I watch one of Austin’s videos and think “this is just like Justin” he’s trying to be his own artist, I understand how all these comments can be annoying. You don’t want to be reminded of as just another somebody. Justin and Austin’s music is pretty different, Austin’s is a mix between old pop and new Justin’s is just new feeling.

  • Haha

    SAMETHING different face. Sorry not sorry.

  • Hannah bieber

    I love Austin mahone and I don’t think he’s trying to be like justin. Justin is Austin’s inspiration and his style is different. Austin sings about love and justin just sings about different things like believing in your dreams,partying,etc. they both have their own style. They say MattyB is the next justin bieber to and he’s like 8 years old . The person who I really think is trying to be like justin is Cody Simpson.


    I agree with Austin Mahone that he shouldn’t be compare to Justin Bieber because he’as not equaled to him .

  • Ammie

    Austin Mahone inspirited by him but I don’t blame him for opening up about it.They both are hot but I have to say Austin is the hottest scene JB always have to be called the hot one is just not fare this maybe why boys these days wanna come out cause of JB talent with a botch of girls running after him but then it turn out -.- with a different story.

  • Lailani

    They both are super cute

  • Birk

    I feel bad for Austin because he is trying his hardest to be himself and wants to be seen as his own person, not a clone of Justin Bieber.. Most people want to be seen as themselves not as a copy cat of someone else.. Austin is also a Belieber and it was his dream to record with Justin and that dream came true.. Austin is not dissing Justin in any way, he just wants people to see him for himself. I hope that Justin takes Austin under his wing and becomes his mentor like Usher did for him.

  • f.u.

    It seems like he is copying him though and he needs to be himself. :)

    • Lailani

      I don’t think Austin is coping Justin. There taste is different. But both love music. And there style is to.

  • April

    I agree it doesn’t work with Austin no one can be Justin!!!

  • tj

    musically he is copying nsync/bsb but his whole blueprint and look and stuff is justin.

    Gals I have been following JB’s career as a hobby I am not a fan girl I am interested in who are his producers,who actually writes the lyrics etc, I have seen JB 7 times I went to see Austin in Pittsburgh at AE Stage He was good but it would have been more enjoyable for me if I had NEVER seen JB Austin would do a dance move and my mind would go “JB” It did not help that some of his dancers were from the Believe tour and that his stage was very similar to JB’s2010 tour stage. I know he is a Belieber and he was ecstatic to be in the studio with JB on Austin’s birthday but if he does not want to keep being compared to JB then DO NOT hire Nick Demoura as your choreographer or have your videos shot by Colin Tilley who does JB’s and have them looking all golden ETC

  • Xavier Jackson

    Austin is copying justin

  • Tsehay

    I totally agree with Austin
    He has his own music, his own fan and he’s his own person. I’m also tired of people comparing Justin to Austin. Austin is waaaaaaay different then Justin.

  • Lailani

    There one of the hottest guys ever

  • Sarah Bieber

    I think he’s just influenced by justin alot. He definiately has his own style. Like jusitn is influenced by justin timberlake, MJ, and usher, but he still has his own style. And of course people are going to compare. It’s not fair to say that he’s copying justin because, well, in this day and age no singer can be original, even justin himself.

  • GiSou BelieBer

    Austin is copying but u know he can’t be like JB cuz justin is a suuuuuuuper star

  • Nicki

    I agree with Austin, they don’t really know nothing about him, they just say that for what they see. They both are great guys and I both luv them, but they are different.

  • Shantelle Perez

    Well, I only think their faces look alike but nothing like their behaviors, the way they act or their dance moves. Of course almost all singing celebrities do cool dance moves and you might find them the same but c’mon Austin and Justin? Naaaah.

  • Shantelle Perez

    They both have a lot of the same dance moves but not their behavior. I think their behavior is totally different. Forgive me if I’m wrong

  • Gary

    Justin has always been Austin’s Idol so naturally he always has loved being compared to him….(until Justin started to get into trouble)
