Shawn Mendes Considers Himself 'Lucky' in 'Notion' Magazine

Shawn Mendes lands the brand new cover of Notion magazine’s 72nd issue.

Here’s what the 17-year-old “Stitches” singer had to share with the mag:

On staying grounded: “The most important thing is to recognize that I’m not a god, I’m not a special person by any means. I’ve just been lucky to have such a great fanbase who are into my music and who connect with what I’m saying. They are really taking what I say to heart, so I guess the best thing I can do is keep writing music, to help inspire them.”

On his ideal girl: “I really like funny girls, girls with a witty sense of humour; so if someone is able to catch onto what I’m saying very quickly, I find that very attractive. I really like brunettes… and also, dancers! I have a thing for dancers!”

On Ed Sheeran: “Ed Sheeran takes personal experiences and makes people want to listen and want to know. He finds the words to describe things in the best way he can. With ‘The Man,’ at the end, you find yourself feeling so, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe this happened!’ as you’re so engaged with him and what he’s singing about and that is very difficult. It’s easy for artists to write about relatable topics but it’s hard for them to write about themselves and make people love them…”
