Shawn Mendes‘ relationship status with social networks? It’s made complex.
Though he’s just recently taken an action back from Instagram, the super star vocalist went back to the social networks platform onDec 30 to thank fans for supporting his separation anthem, “It’ll Be Okay.” In a video message taken at his house in Toronto, Mendes, 23, informed his Instagram fans, “I just wanted to make a little video and say thank you to everybody who has been connecting with ‘It’ll Be Okay’ and posting videos. I’m having a little bit of a hard time with social media at the moment and just kind of my relationship with it. But I have lots of people sending me videos and telling me what’s going on.”
Mendes, who validated his separation from Camila Cabello in November, went on to share, “When I make music, the ultimate goal is to be sitting there and have my own truth revealed to me. And a lot of the time when I’m writing songs I’m usually using music as a platform to be able to get to a place inside of myself that I wouldn’t be able through by just talking with people or thinking about it.”
