Austin Mahone is often compared to fellow teen heartthrob Justin Bieber, but they are a lot of things that set the two boys apart. In honor of Mahone’s second EP The Secret, Us Weekly caught up with the 18-year-old singer to put together a list of 25 things you might not know about him.
Here are some of our favorites (find the whole list at the link):
- The first album he ever bought was Rascal Flatts.
- He had his first kiss at 13.
- He’s obsessed with drinking sweet tea.
- The first thing he does when he get back to his hometown of San Antonio, Texas, is eat Whataburger.
- He owns at least 300 pairs of sneakers.
- The first thing he notices about a girl is her hair.
- He brings a jar of sand from the beach on tour to remind him of home.
- On his very first date, he took a girl to see a movie.
- His favorite dance move is the “Old Man.” (Does that involve sleeping?)
- The best gift someone gave him for his 18th birthday was a diamond necklace.
