Remember when Adrian Grenier's character Vinny Chase failed his driving test on Entourage
and the driving instructor let him pass anyway just because he was famous?
Well, that did not
happen to Austin Mahone.
The pop singer, 17 – who has been called the next Justin Bieber and one of MTV's "Artists to Watch" in 2013 – seemed super excited about taking his driving test Wednesday morning. "Taking my drivers test today!! wish me luck," he Tweeted
But half-an-hour later, the singer Tweeted some bad news
: "I failed," he wrote. And in a separate Tweet, he wrote, "She told me to stop singing in the car."
The singer's fans – he has more than 4 million followers on Twitter who call themselves his "Mahomies" – consoled the singer with Tweets like
, "Awww so sorry for you. but next time you'll do it! #ibelieveinyou, and other encouragement
Better luck next time, Austin!
