‘Everyone Makes Mistakes’: Austin Mahone Speaks On Justin Bieber’s Controversial Antics

Austin Mahone may be spending an increasing amount of time with Justin Bieber these days but he won’t be following in the Canadian singer’s controversial footsteps, stating that while “everyone makes mistakes,” he has a good team around him to make sure he stays out of trouble.

The pop hotties were once thought to be chart rivals but they joined forces last month to work on music together for the first time, with Justin, 20, sharing photos from their studio sessions together.

Judging by their dinner and basketball hangouts, their friendship clearly extends outside of the studio but Austin insists that he won’t be influenced by some of Justin’s controversial behaviour which includes getting arrested for a DUI.

In an interview with Celebuzz, Austin said: “I mean, everyone makes mistakes. I think it all comes down to having a good, solid team around.

“Like I have my best friends to travel with me, and my mom to travel with me, so I think I have a pretty good base. I think that’s what it all comes down to.”

Sharing details of their recording sessions, Austin revealed: “We were in the studio for about a week. And when we were in there, he was helping me with [my] music, and we were doing a little writing. He was just giving me little tips.”

He may have some answering to do though as when asked whom he would choose out of Miley Cyrus and Justin’s ex Selena Gomez, he simply answered: “Selena.” Is that a crush you’ve got there, Austin?
