On Monday morning — when most celebs were offering their opinions on Miley Cyrus' tongue-laden twerkathon — Harry Styles opined that the MTV Video Music Award for "Artist to Watch" had gone to the wrong person.
"IGGYAZALEA should've won last night.." Styles tweeted.
By Wednesday, word had gotten back to Austin about what Styles had said. He handled it pretty well (brilliantly, really, when you consider he's only 17).
Austin, who hails from San Antonio, Texas, opened for select dates of Taylor Swift's Red Tour earlier this year.
