Liam Payne Checked In With Shawn Mendes About Pressures of Superstardom

Liam Payne wants Shawn Mendes to know he always has his back.

The 24-year-old former One Direction member has reached out to the 19-year-old “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” singer to lend his support when it comes to the ups and downs of fame.

“With the way this lifestyle is, we don’t help each other and there’s just not much point to it,” Liam told MTV’s TRL about the music industry on Wednesday (May 16). “I went and saw Shawn Mendes recently when I was at an awards show. I think he’s doing fantastic, but I could hear the slightest bit of sorrow in a recent song he wrote, and I wanted to make sure he was all good.”

“He’s only 19 years old — not to belittle him in any way, shape, or form because I think he’s incredible,” Liam continued. “He’s got his head screwed on and he’s gone about it the right way. Now [that] he’s known all over the world, it’s a bit of a transformation.”

“I just wanted to offer, ‘If you ever have a problem or something’s going on, call me and we can have a chat about it,’” he added.
