On the surface, it impossible not to compare Austin Mahone to Justin Bieber: They're both pop singers, they're both teen heartthrobs and they happen to share a similar taste in clothes and hairstyles.
And while Beliebers and Mahomies understand the difference between the two guys, critics and naysayers don't. "Justin's inspirational and it's flattering to be compared to him. It's cool," the "What About Love" singer says in the new issue of Details. "But I don't want people to see me as a copy of Justin Bieber."
Though it seems there's always someone jumping to the conclusion that he's a Bieber clone thanks to his wardrobe choices. "Sometimes I can't breathe without being compared to him," Austin says. "If I wear a certain hat: Justin Bieber. Wear a certain shirt: Justin Bieber. It's so annoying," the star admits.
