Austin Mahone Shows Off First Car on Twitter
Kids, pay attention. This is what viral videos and a subsequent record deal can get you. Sixteen-year-old singer Austin Mahone has bought a brand-new Range Rover.
If you're gonna hang with the Young Money crew, you need a serious ride. Mahone shared the photo on Twitter and wrote, "My first ever big purchase! #RangeRollin." The casually-dressed teen from San Antonio looks excited as he proudly strikes a pose next to his big purchase.
Hopefully the teen didn't blow his entire bonus on the vehicle, but we bet the new Chase Records signee has a team helping to look after his finances. Either way, we send him a big congrats for his awesome new ride.
Mahone has been compared to Justin Bieber because of his similar musical style and hot dance moves. Like Bieber, Mahone first earned a following thanks to YouTube. His video 'Say Somethin' is approaching 2 million views on the site, and he's hard at work on his full-length album.
You can expect that Kelly Ripa will ask Mahone about his new purchase when he makes his television debut and sings 'Say Somethin' on 'Live With Kelly' this Thursday, Sept. 20. Mahone already has plenty of experience performing live, having played at various radio station festivals this summer. He also gave Elvis Duran an exclusive in-studio acoustic performance during an interview in June.
