Looks like music is more important than all else! Regardless of how Justin feels about Austin’s friendship with Selena, the guys jumped in the studio together and a source tells HollywoodLife.com that they ‘really respect’ each other!
Justin Bieber headed into the studio on April 1 with his crew to record some new music — and shared a pic with Austin Mahone! The guys stood together with Young Money president Mack Maine and Cash Money founder Birdman, and teased their new music!
Austin Mahone &Justin Bieber Record Together
“What an amazing song last night..The world isn’t ready! @justinbieber,” Austin, 17, captioned the pic. Justin also posted it, writing “New music #YMCMB.” For those who don’t know, YMCMB stands for Young Money Cash Money Billionaires.
“They really respect each other’s music,” a source told HollywoodLife.com. “They work with a lot of the same producers and Justin knew Austin has been in the studio working on his album. Justin had a song he thought could be really perfect to do with Austin so they got together in the studio.”
What About Selena?
“Taylor loves [Austin]. She thinks he’s adorable and knows Justin’s threatened by him,” a source close to Taylor told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Getting him to hang out with Selena was her idea. It’s no secret she’s not a fan of Justin anymore, so it seems pretty obvious why she’d want to push Austin and Selena together. Plus, Austin is the nicest guy. He’s so genuine — what you see is what you get. He doesn’t party, he’s humble and he’s not taking any of this for granted.”
While Selena and Austin did hang out a few times, it was purely friendly, Austin told us.
“We’re just friends.When I was in LA [in January], I hit her up,” he told us in an interview. “I was like, ‘Hey, I’m in LA. What’re you doing?’ She was like, ‘I’m going to the Beats party tonight.’ I was like, ‘Oh, cool, let’s just hang out or whatever.’ I saw her there and then she was playing me some music, and she’s got some great music coming up.”
Well apparently he does too — with her man! HollywoodLifers, are you shocked that Justin and Austin are recording music together? Are you excited? Do you think Selena will like it? Let us know!
