YMCMB signee Austin Mahone has been receiving relationship advice from country singer Taylor Swift.
The 17-year-old opened for Taylor at a number of her shows on her Red concert tour this summer. The two became close and have remained good friends, with Taylor telling him what kind of girls to look for.
Austin was clearly blown away by Taylor, both for her personality and her talent. The young pop star says Taylor has become a mentor to him.
‘She told me to find a good girl that’s not crazy, and has morals.
‘She’s gorgeous. She’s super talented, nice, she puts on an amazing, two-hour show,’ Austin gushed. ‘I don’t get bored watching it. I can learn a lot from that. She’s incredible,’ Austin gushed to OK! Magazine U.S.
Austin was rumoured to be seeing singer and Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello, but he says the reports are not true.
While he and Camila are friends, Austin insists he isn’t seeing anyone right now which is probably why Taylor offered up her advice.
‘I met her once at the Arthur Ashe event [in August],’ he said. ‘She’s a cool girl, very nice, but we’re not dating. I’m single.’
However, Austin knows what he’s looking for when it comes to any potential girlfriends.
As well as not being too tall, she has to develop a good relationship with his mother the teen star has confessed.
‘I like a girl that’s shorter than me, because when she wears heels, I don’t want her to tower over me, and me look all short,’ he said. ‘Also, my mom would have to like her because my mom has been there with me. Since the start, it’s been me and her, so it’s important.’
Austin’s debut album is set for release in December.
