Austin Mahone upset his fans when he posted a picture of himself and his entourage standing in front of a private jet this week. Many fans thought Austin looked a bit too much like Justin Bieber in the photo, and they are worried that Austin is going down the wrong path.
However, Austin has assured fans that he is not going to go “crazy” like Justin or Miley Cyrus! He spilled to the press:
The shocking and risky thing that [Miley] has done has definitely got her more well known. I feel like a lot of fans on YouTube and Twitter are like, ‘Oh, don’t go crazy like these people’ And you know, everyone’s definitely going to make mistakes. But I’m not worried, because I’ve got a big family around me… who are going to keep me in check, so I’m not too worried about it. I feel like all these teen stars, they’re doing what normal kids are doing, but because it’s in the spotlight it gets blown up.
Back in 2011 Justin told the press:
It’s hard to really balance myself. A regular kid, if he catches the flu, he just gets to go home. But I can’t do that…. Everything is important. But, you know, my sanity is important, too. Even if I’m angry, I’ll just put a smile on my face and fake it. I don’t often fake it—what’s me is me….I know I have to give up a lot of myself, or a lot of a private life.
Do you think Austin will start making headlines like Justin and Miley in the future? Or do you think he will be fine?
