Does a bad photo of Shawn Mendes even exist?
A week before Shawn is expected to touch down in Australia, his newest photoshoot with L’Uomo Vogue features the singer-songwriter looking ultra sexy in a fashion spread shot by Sebastian Kim.
The shoot is part of the magazine’s October feature, called The Charmers.
Here are a couple of highlights from the interview:
What he has learned from Taylor Swift:
“One of the important things I learned from Taylor Swift during the tour we did together this year is that there is no level of success that allows you to stop working hard. The way I stay ‘healthy’ is by reminding myself that I sing out of passion, to have fun. I make music because I love it, but I want to keep my feet on the ground. My parents (English mother and Portuguese father, ed.) and my 12-year-old sister are proud of what’s happening, but they haven’t changed anything in the way they act around me. And the same is true for my old friends, who are and remain my whole world. It was with them that I celebrated my 18th birthday on August 8th.”
How he handles stage fright:
“The first few times I was really nervous. And in the end I always am whenever I step onto a stage, although now I’m more aware and confident. How do I beat the tension? I prepare my voice by eating manuka honey according to grandmother’s recipe. And then I isolate my mind, focusing only on the music.”
