NEW YORK (AP) - Teen singer Austin Mahone has postponed his tour and is being treated for a blood clot in his throat.

A representative for the 17-year-old said in a statement Friday that Mahone was admitted to the hospital Thursday with a 104 temperature. The rep adds that he's dealing with "extreme inflammation in his throat as well as severe dehydration."

Mahone's U.S. tour was supposed to kick off this week but is being pushed to next year.

The singer, popular among teenage girls, has opened on the road for Taylor Swift. The music video for his single "What About Love" has close to 50 million views on YouTube.

Mahone won the artist to watch award at the MTV Video Music Awards this year. He will release his debut album next year.
