Austin Mahone is perfectly content with where he’s at in terms of his fame and he promises his fans he won’t result to shock tactics to increase his image.

While speaking with Digital Spy, the 18-year-old pop star said that he hopes to stay grounded through his success, unlike some of his contemporaries who have made the news for reasons outside of their music, such as Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber.

“The shocking and risky thing that [Miley] has done has definitely got her more well known,” he told the site. “I feel like a lot of fans on YouTube and Twitter are like, ‘Oh, don’t go crazy like these people’.

“And you know, everyone’s definitely going to make mistakes,” he continued. “But I’m not worried, because I’ve got a big family around me… who are going to keep me in check, so I’m not too worried about it.”

Finally, Mahone doesn’t think stars like Miley are doing anything but being young. “I feel like all these teen stars, they’re doing what normal kids are doing, but because it’s in the spotlight it gets blown up.”

Mahone is currently out promoting his first EP titled ‘The Secret.’
