    Austin Mahone is feeling back to normal following his hospital scare last month.

    After landing in the hospital for a blood clot and dehydration, the singer is back and better than ever, telling E! News, "I am 100 percent now and feeling great."

    "I've been in my bed for the past two weeks on YouTube, studying Chris Brown, Usher, [Michael Jackson] and all those guys and I've just been chilling. Slowly getting back to the gym and dancing, so I feel good and I am excited to perform my new single. My fans were really supportive. I had girls send me cakes to my condo and cards so it was really nice."

    Mahone performed a special MTV EMA performance live from New York City Sunday in a stateside show kickoff, which also included performances from Fall Out Boy and Jason Derulo.

    The show marked his first performance since his hospitalization.

    And now that he's ready to perform again, Mahone is also addressing his thoughts on those who've compared his musical stylings to that of Justin Bieber.

    "It's definitely flattering," Mahone said. "But, I just want people to give me a chance to let me show them I am different and I am my own person."

    Bieber comparisons aside, the "What About Love" crooner is still looking for that lucky lady.

    Although he doesn't have a girlfriend "just yet," Mahone said he would break the ice with a potential ladylove using this line: "Hey do you know how much a polar bear weighs?"

    "She would say no and I would say enough to break the ice. I am Austin Mahone."

    Too cute.
