Shawn Mendes Wants His Music To Be The Soundtrack Of Your Life

Shawn Mendes is all about telling the best story through his music and he’s aiming to make new music that will turn into the soundtrack of your life.

“I want to create anthems for people,” the “Mercy” singer told Clash magazine. “I want to create anthems for big moments in their lives.”

Shawn adds that he wants all his music to have that staying power.

“I don’t want my music to play for a few months and then go away forever. And not only that, I want to do incredible things that make a difference too,” he shared.

“I think it’s not only about the music you release, it’s about the things you do while you’re making the music.”

Niall Horan may think collaborating with his former One Direction bandmates would be “a bit weird” right now, but he definitely does share the sentiment when it comes to his friend Shawn Mendes.

In a new interview, Niall talks all about his friendship with Shawn, for whom he acts as a mentor of sorts.

“I love Shawnie, he’s the man. He’s great,” Niall told Entertainment City. “He keeps saying to me, ‘I’m so new to this’ and keeps asking me questions and stuff, he’s just a great guy.”

Fortunately, Shawn has Niall to give him advice and keep him calm in this challenging industry.

“He gets really nervous a lot and I try to chill him out a little bit,” Niall continued, “He’s 18 years old, we all forget. Just because he’s 6 foot 5 and looks like Michael Phelps doesn’t mean he’s not 18! I went to watch his gig and I watched him at the O2 in London I was like this guy is 18 years old and he’s selling out arenas on his own all over the world. I was proud of him. He’s a good guy. I love that he still lives at home as well, it’s great.”

It’s so important to have mentors in every career-path, but for celebrities especially, it can make all of the difference.

Shawn Mendes Refuses to Give Man Autograph for Fear He Will Sell It (Video)

Shawn Mendes Refuses to Give Man Autograph for Fear He Will Sell It (Video)

Shawn Mendes is totally sweet to his fans. He spends hours posing for pictures with them and trying to be the absolute best performer he can be for them.

That’s why a new video of Shawn refusing to give an autograph to one man seems to be upsetting some people.

Still, upon watching the video in its entirety, Shawn isn’t being unreasonable at all — he is simply being wary that the man will sell his autograph to exploit his young fans.

In the video, a man repeatedly asks Shawn for an autograph for his sister, and Shawn refuses. “Because people like you! You sell the signatures!” he repeats.

Eventually, when the man doesn’t back down, Shawn tells him to call his sister (whom he doubts exists) so that he can confirm it is she who wants an autograph.

Throughout the video, Shawn continues to pose for pictures with other fans, saying, “You guys know what I mean?” They all nod in agreement.

Eventually, he talks to the man’s sister (or someone) on the phone and agrees to sign the autograph, noting that the man got his sister’s age wrong.

“Sorry. I hope you’re cool with that,” he ends the encounter.

While some people are calling Shawn a diva, it is clear throughout the video that he is trying to do right by his fans and make sure that no one is trying to use them. This man may have had a sister, but if he did, the lucky girl got a phone call from her idol too! That’s better than any autograph, right? Win-win!

Shawn Mendes is Always Trying To Be A Better Performer For His Fans

Shawn Mendes is Always Trying To Be A Better Performer For His Fans

Shawn Mendes steps out for a radio interview in London, England, all while wrapping up his European tour dates.

The “Mercy” singer recently spoke with The Standard about always trying to one-up his own performances.

“I came offstage today and thought: ‘I gotta go and learn how to win over a festival crowd’,” Shawn shared. “They [the fans] were amazing out there but I need to really be something that takes people’s breath away. I don’t want to get on stage and just be another act.”

Shawn also revealed that he’s this hard on himself all the time, too.

“Totally. And at times I f****** wish I wasn’t…It’s annoying. But there’s a reason I’m in this place, and that’s because I question everything I do, and I make sure it’s better next time.”

Shawn is also pictured taping his upcoming appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
