Shawn Mendes sat down with Rolling Stone to have a
little chat about how he’s gone from a small town teen to international superstar, no big deal.
Throughout the interview, the prestigious music mag spoke with numerous fans who credited Shawn as basically being the sweetest guy to ever exist. “Fans feel like they have this “one-to-one relationship” with Mendes. It really does come down to him as a person.”
Speaking of how great he is, Camila Cabello was also mentioned quite a bit in the article and she said this about Shawn: “I always thought he was a charming dude.” WE SHIP IT, seriously can they just announce they’re together so we can cry at how cute they are?
Ed Sheeran was a topic that came up a lot and it seems like Shawn is taking steps in becoming the Canadian version of him! “I have to make myself [my own] ‘Thinking Out Loud,'” said Shawn. The article also suggests that the follow-up to Handwritten may have already been written. A new Shawn Mendes album? Hell yes! We can’t wait. We already know Shawn is working with Jake Gosling, who was the main producer for both of Ed’s albums ‘x’ & ‘+’.
Speaking about his idol Ed, Shawn said: “He’s just like an average guy and a very approachable person. I’ve actually gotten the chance to meet him, and he’s just like a very sweet guy. He is just so normal, and that’s the best part about him.” It seems Shawn and Ed have a lot in common, we think a collab is needed.
Speaking of collabs, it looks like a writing sesh with John Mayer is on the table too. “We have been talking a bit, so if I get to LA to write with him, that’ll be really cool.”
The article is pretty hefty and there is a lot more to enjoy, so if you’d like to read more about Shawn being the best person ever click here.
