Shawn Mendes Explains Why He Refuses To Have Social Media On His Phone
Shawn Mendes is getting real about his mental health.
The Canadian cutie, 20, chatted with fans ahead of a concert this week about why he decided to wipe his phone clean of negative energy, including social media.
“I struggle with social media a lot too,” he explained. “To be honest with you guys, I deleted Instagram and Twitter three days ago, but I send my manager pictures and I’m like, ‘Can you post this.’”
And while social media “gets to him as much as anyone else” he says he’s thankful for the breaks.
“Sometimes I need to take a break from it too because it gets to me just as much as it gets to anyone else,” he shared.
Adding, “You have to take care of yourself, it’s really really important. Make yourself come first.”
Mendes’ new girlfriend Camila Cabello has also erased social media from her phone.
