Austin Mahone is totally over the Justin Bieber comparisons — especially in the wake of all the pop star's recent racist scandal!
So that's why he's reaching out to the masses, saying that although he respects the great Bieberoni, they are nothing alike!
In a new interview while promoting his latest EP The Secret, Mr. Mahone explained:
"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."
Well then, good to know!
Both heartthrobs got their start on YouTube making the ladies swoon, but the comparison should end there!
The two definitely collaborated together recently, so other than that, they should remain separate entities.
Thanks Austy! Harshly noted.
