Austin Mahone Flexes Muscles, Releases Video For ‘What About Love’
Austin Mahone, the YouTube sensation turned pop star, stopped by MTV’s Newsroom for Live From MTV to discuss his new music video and a recent Instagram pic in which he’s flexing his muscles.
After discussing the choreography he had to learn for his "What About Love" video – and filming in Miami’s intense heat with his signature beanie – the topic turned towards a recent shirtless Instagram picture of the singer. Mahone admitted he’d been hitting the gym lately, and then gamely accepted the audience’s pushup challenge.
The 17-year-old singer was willing to answer just about every fan question that came his way – including his biggest celebrity crushes and whether he’d consider dating an older woman. Actress Mila Kunis was his female celeb of choice, while he revealed Mark Wahlberg as his “man-crush.” And would he go for an older woman? Mahone answered in the affirmative, joking, “Sky’s the limit.”
“What About Love,” which Mahone said was inspired by his many musical influences, including David Guetta, Backstreet Boys and Trey Songz, reached #5 on the iTunes charts on Monday.
