Shawn Mendes Says He's Having a 'Hard Time' with Social Media Right Now

Shawn Mendes is opening up about the difficulties of having social media while in the public eye, just days after his ex-girlfriend Camila Cabello announced a break from social media apps.

The 23-year-old singer took to Instagram on Thursday (December 30) to share a video with fans, talking about his new song “It’ll Be Okay.”

In the video, Shawn talked about the responses he’s been getting from fans because of the song and he revealed why he’s been off of social media lately.

“I’m a having a little bit of a hard time at the moment and just kind of my relationship with it,” Shawn said. “But I have lots of people sending me videos and telling me what’s going on.”

He continued, “I think that when I make music, the ultimate goal is to kind of be sitting there and have my own truth revealed to me. A lot of the time when I’m writing songs, I’m using music as a platform to be able to get to a place inside myself that I wouldn’t be able to get to by just talking to people or thinking about it.”
