Shawn Mendes just recently gave a soul-baring interview with Billboard, talking about everything from his music, to what he thinks about Justin Bieber, and his fans of course. But it looks like the singer wasn't too happy to see a tweet that referenced a quote he may have said about his fans not knowing who he truly is.
Shawn was quick to defend himself and his Mendes Army, clarifying what he actually said in the story.
I explained how im growing up and so are you guys and how it takes time for you all to fully understand me and me to understand you— Shawn Mendes (@ShawnMendes) August 25, 2016
Its really unfortunate when what you say gets turned into the bad version of it. Im sorry guys— Shawn Mendes (@ShawnMendes) August 25, 2016
and the part that i spoke about how much my fans mean to me and what i owe them is not even touched on— Shawn Mendes (@ShawnMendes) August 25, 2016
Again, im sorry. Very frustrated ❤️— Shawn Mendes (@ShawnMendes) August 25, 2016
Looks like Shawn just wants his supporters to know how much they mean to him! In the actual interview that this supposed quote came from, the "Treat You Better" singer did make a general statement about how people in general, not just his fans, don't ever really know the full scope of what it's like simply having his career and being a famous musician.
"People know me but they have no idea. I can't be best friends with the entire world, I can't fall in love with every girl, I can't be a father figure or older-brother figure to every person. But I hate being alone. I just want someone there — to get out of my own head for a minute," Shawn said.
So there you have it, Shawn will always be there to defend his fans, no matter what!
