Austin Mahone admitted that nobody thought he would ever succeed a few years ago.
He chatted about what life was like before he started getting famous. He said that nobody believed in him while he was at school:
“I didn’t really have too many friends, just a couple. Most of the people in my high school thought being on YouTube was pretty stupid and that I was never going to make it. I only had a couple friends, but once the ball started rolling and things started happening, I was amazed.”
Austin's YouTube channel started getting tons of visits and he started getting recognized for his talented. And now his classmates have changed their story:
“It’s like, ‘Why doesn’t Austin like us? We were so nice to him in school.’ Yeah, right.”
Austin knows that it's better to have a few real friends than lots of fake “friends” who just want to use you for something.
