The 20-year-old singer opened up to the glossy about what he does in his spare time, his sense of style, and more. Check it:
On what song would be the soundtrack to his life: “Probably the Full House theme song, because I love that song. I love that show. I don’t know how I feel about [the reboot]. When shows come back a second time, it’s cool but it’s not the same. Seeing the characters all grown up and still doing their thing, that was pretty interesting. But nothing beats the original Full House.”
On his newfound love of fashion: “I really do like fashion. I don’t know too much now, but I’m learning as I go, [like] you can pretty much wear whatever you want, you just gotta know you look good in it. You have to be confident. Sometimes I’m like, ‘Oh I don’t know if these pants match with this shirt or these shoes might be too much.’ But then I’m like, ‘You know what? I’m just gonna wear it and know it looks good.’ And that’s how it looks good.”
What he does in his off time: “I’m pretty much just making music all the time. I don’t have too many hobbies that I do when I’m not working, but I like to play basketball. I work out a lot. I’ve really been getting into reading books. I’ve never been a reader, but for some reason, I’ve been feeling the need to pick up a book recently and I really enjoy it.”
Austin Mahone has an explanation for why he has yet to release an album.
The 20-year-old singer recently dropped his mixtape, ForMe+You, and assures fans that he also has a full-length record in the works for 2017.
“It’s gonna come this year. I’ll tell you that,” Austin said (via HuffPo). “I know I’ve been saying that every year, but it’s for real coming out this time. I’m literally starting the process now.”
“I think it’s really just finding the music that I really can connect with and I feel like these are the songs that people are going to love,” Austin said about delaying it. “I’m still growing as an artist. I’m still growing as a producer, as a writer, so I want my project to be the best that it can be. I don’t want to put out something that’s half good…I want to make sure that it’s fire before I put it out to the world.”
