Shawn Mendes Strips Down Shirtless for 'Hero' Mag!
Here’s what the 18-year-old singer had to share with the mag:
On his second studio album: “In the second album a lot of the songs are a little more produced, that’s because I’ve had a lot of creative control and been like, “This is what I want to do, these are the kind of movements I want to make….You just want to have more involvement with something that you put your heart into. So with this new album I made sure I was writing every single song, I was there for the production on every single song, I didn’t want it to be released without me being 100% sure about it”
On becoming famous: “The most truthful and honest thing I can say is the most famous people in the world, the majority of the time are famous because of their obsession with what they do, and their love for what they do. Not because their goal was to become famous. I don’t think being famous is an occupation, so for kids that are trying to become famous, I don’t really know, I don’t have advice – I wasn’t trying to become famous, I was trying to become a singer.”
On his concert: “You know how your parents say treat people the way you want to be treated? I perform my show how I’d like to see one. So that’s kind of how I look at it, when I go to a show I would feel overwhelmed with production and dancers and it would be too much for me to see, I love to see an artist when they’re just singing, I get chills when I see someone performing.”
