The 18-year-old singer/rapper opened up to the glossy all about her relationship with Austin Mahone. Check it:
On how they went from friends to more: “I can’t tell you when or where, but it just happened…It kind of took me by surprise. For me, it was the first time dealing with being with somebody in the public eye. I thought, ‘OMG, I’m living the teenage dream, a pop star dating a pop star’…He and I had to make a decision. We were just like, ‘We’re together. We’re not going to hide it.’”
On why they broke up: “We both really cared about each other, but we had to decide if we were going to stay in this until the wheels fall off and we hate each other, or if we’re going to put our friendship first. We both knew what was coming in our careers, and that we just have to press pause, for now. Yeah. Keyword: pause.”
On seeing him move on: “When you let go of it, you’ve got to let go. As tough a pill as it is to swallow—if he finds happiness in another person, then it just is what it is.”
