This is Austin’s backstage interview from the 106.1 Kiss FM Jingle Ball. Austin talks about why he moved to Florida, he felt like moving to LA or New York would be too cliche. A lot of aspiring singers and actors do that, also because that’s where his manager is based.
He is also asked for a crazy fan story. What I like is the interviewer specifies that he wants a recent story, so we don’t end up hearing the same ones again. Thank you sir! So here is his story. He is on a float at the Macy’s parade waving to people. There is a barricade and a load of cops lined up along it. Somehow this girls gets over the baracade and sprints toward the float. Austin sees this girl coming at him and then a cops catches up to her and tackles her against the float. He felt bad cos she got taken down by a cop and she just wanted a high five.
She was still smiling when they were taking her away. At least she’ll be happy that she is a part of his fan stories now. I love how animated he got telling that, he gets up off the couch and starts waving his arms around.
He then talks about how he is the only one using his twitter/facebook accounts and all that. Cos some celebs have people do that for them. He said he once went away for a week and left hsi laptop on (I assume is was pluggin in). He has left twitter open and came back to 3,000,000 mentions.
Austin performed at the 101.3 KDWB Jingle Ball last night! He was interviewed by the station backstage. They talk about pretzels, the pre show, and he talks about his plans for Christmas.
He talks about what music he listens to and what TV shows he is into (Family Guy Spoiler).
Austin was interviewed by an over excited host at the 99.7 Triple Ho Show. They talk about Austin’s show and his success. He gives advice for people chasing their dreams, and talks about Banga Banga. The DJ behind the Banga Banga leak asked if they were cool, apparently Michele isn’t a fan of him.
What I find odd is that the DJ said its not his fault his boss told him too. But at the same time he is saying he was taking the blame and not letting his boss get into trouble… yet he is clearly running his mouth and telling everyone it was his boss’s fault. What is that guy on? Watch Austin completely lose interest as he keeps going…
The thing is, no matter how annoyed any of Austin’s team are, they can’t say it publicly or they might look bad. That must suck not being able to vent:
Here is an interview from the Q102 Jingle Ball. Austin said he still hasn’t figured out a name for his album yet, but it is full of HITS not just tracks. He answers some fan questions too. He is asked if he has any good luck charms, has he ever had the urge to ask a fan out, what does he put on his chicken nuggets, and does he sing his own songs in the shower:

Austin had an interview with Billboard at the Kiis FM Jingle Ball! Fifth Harmony turn up again, that is happening waaay too often:
Austin was interviewed backstage at the Kiis FM Jingle Ball yesterday. He talks about going home to Texas for Christmas, and how he manages to stay a kid on the road. Next year the Foolish Four will be on the road with Austin!
The next big thing he is most excited about is his album coming out (us too Austin ). He talks about how he picks songs for his album, he says he has a lot of good people around him to help him pick. He says he doesn’t have too many yes men yet, but he thinks sometimes people tell him things are greater than they are. I hope he stays on top of that, that’s probably the hardest thing.
He wants to get 5 Million followers by the end of 2013!
Watch Austin’s interview with Mario Lopez on Extra right here!
He talks about what he wants for Christmas, being sick, the Jingle Balls and if he is seeing anyone at the moment:
So this journalist seeems to have given a really honest description of what went on at the red carpet of the Q102 Jingle Ball. All the press are assigned spots that they have to stay in. If a star gets tired of interviews before they make it to your spot, tough luck (Avril Lavigne).
“Austin’s here!” was the cry, followed a flurry of flashes and the clicks of camera shutters. There was a lingering worry, however, that he wouldn’t talk with me at all.
Avril Lavigne had stalked through, posed for pictures, conducted two television interviews before fleeing the carpet, refusing to talk to anyone else.
I needn’t have worried about Mahone though, he spent time chatting with every person on the line, mugging for photos the whole way. A perfect sweetheart, he even complimented my iPhone case. He took his time to answer every question fully, even elaborating on a tale of his worst travel experience ever (it involved a baby, getting hit in the head and the loss of his pillow).
In my case, he grinned as he told me his favorite Christmas song (my question for all the artists) – “Jingle Bells.”
So yes, fans, Mahone is just as nice in person as you would expect him be. Fangirldom is justified this time around.
So Austin is as lovely as we all thought, he’s really nice But since gossip is fun, lets check out who else didn’t do interviews:
Paramore was rushed through (although this appeared to be a time issue – the group was already running late) and Pitbull refused to do any interviews. Robin Thicke also declined press interviews. Fall Out Boy talked to some press, but didn’t make it through the whole line – the group clearly tired of chatting by the time they got to me. Flo Rida and Jason Derulo were both sweet and polite.
Fifth Harmony are so chatty that they used up all their time on the first few interviewers and couldn’t get to everyone. That sounds about right lol Click here if you want the full article.
M Magazine have made a list of 5 things they think would be most important to Austin in picking a girlfriend:
1. Austin prefers to be the taller one in the relationship.
“[I like] someone who’s shorter than me,” Austin tells M. If you’re under 5’10″ you’re in luck, but if you’re not, don’t rule yourself out just yet!
2. Austin likes girls who are “cool.”
Which translates to: Be yourself! Don’t try to be someone you’re not, just for a guy.
3. Austin prefers girls with silky, smooth hair.
But don’t worry about length. “Long or short hair doesn’t matter to me,” Austin says. What does matter? Austin can’t help but notice a girl with luscious locks.
4. Austin loves a girl who enjoys traveling.
Austin’s constantly on the road, touring, and traveling, so any girl that’s okay with being in a different city every day is Austin’s perfect match. “Someone who likes to travel [is important] because I do a lot of traveling,” he says. And traveling sometimes means waking up early. “Someone who likes to wake up at 3am [is crucial] because I do a lot of that, too.”
5. Austin loves a girl with a great smile.
Show your pearly whites the next time you’re at an Austin Mahone concert because he reveals to M that he loves “someone with a nice smile” — to go with his, natch!
SugarScape posted an interview of Austin with a whole commentary about this Austin and Kendall Jenner thing. They were wondering if he was heartbroken hearing about Kendall and Haryy Styles.
Apparently not, he talks about his dream date with her and what he would do:
Austin talked with MTV about his new music video for Banga Banga! He is really excited about it! It was supposed to take about two weeks to edit and release so it should be soon. The two week mark is tomorrow! Maybe we will see the video this week?
“I’m pretty excited,” he told MTV.com on Nov. 6. ”It’s going to turn out amazing … I see it kind of fun because I think the song is not really that serious. It’s fun and loose, so I mean I see the video definitely a lot of dancing, a lot of smiling, just a fun video. It can be real loose and real cool.”
Watch Austin’s interview at the American Music Awards. He talks about basketball and what he is doing this year for ThanksGiving. He will be in New York for the Macys Parade, and is going back to Texas for Christmas and New Year:
Austin stopped to do some interviews at the AMAs. Some stuff he talked about, he wants to meet Justin Timberlake, he was looking forward to Mileys performance and hoped it was outrageous. He talks about how he is getting ready for his tour, and what he has to have on tour.
He then chats about what its like hearing rumours about himself, what’s going on with Camila… did you know that he has a hat he wears when he gets out of the shower? It’s to keep his hair flat, otherwise it will puff up into a fro.
