While Austin admitted that he never got flowers in high school, we came prepared, whipping out a dozen roses for the singer at the beginning of the 30-minute live stream. And then of course, we had to get a little information from him, prodding him about his still-in-the-works album, coming later this year. So far, we’ve heard two singles from the LP: “MMM Yeah” and “U,” which dropped this morning.
“I did a little rapping on there, hopefully I didn’t sound too white,” Austin said of the track. And when correspondent Christina Garibaldi asked if Cash Money labelmate Lil Wayne helped guide his rap skills, Austin boasted proudly, “No, I did that all on my own.”
We played games with Mahone, including one where he challenged a fan to a Hershey’s Kisses eating contest. Whoever could fit the most chocolate in their mouth won!
Throughout the show, we hooked Austin up with his biggest Mahomies. He made special Valentine’s Day calls to lucky fans who had tweeted out #AustinMaPhone earlier in the day. How did they react when they got a call from their favorite singer? Well, you’ll just have to watch. The conversations are priceless.
