YouTube-born singer and songwriter Austin Mahone is making the leap from the computer screen to the magazine cover. For Galore magazine, Mahone got those abs out front and centre.

Speaking on his ideal first date, he said: “Spending the day on a boat in Miami relaxing. Then pulling up to a restaurant on the water, Miami has all of these great waterside restaurants and you can just pull your boat right up. After dinner then we’d go out and dance somewhere. Always dancing.”

Let’s just clarify, that this is a 22-year-old YouTuber talking about pulling his boat into a Miami harbour. Just in case, you weren’t feeling bad enough about your life.

He went on to say that he doesn’t think sex on a first date is good or bad, “only you know what’s right for you and what’s right in the moment.”

Mahone is presented as the boyband heartthrobs we used to lust after in the 90s, with their A3 poster stuck to our bedroom walls with blue tac. Styled like Marky Mark was cast on Saved By The Bell, the editing details really finesse that 90s feel; the glossy shines, page creases and hand-drawn stars with curved borders of teen pop magazines, and even Mahone autograph resembles a time long before the selfie took over.
