PAPER MAG – Like fellow Canadian Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes launched his career by posting cover song videos online. The 19-year-old singer has come a long way, currently performing on his second world tour and, when his song “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” recently went number 1, becoming one of five people to have two chart-toppers before the age of 20.

Looking back from your first concert ever to now, how do you feel like you’ve grown during this time?

It’s a world of difference, with 90% of it coming from how confident I am on stage. Confidence is everything when it comes to performing, so the more confident you get, the more exciting you are on stage and the more people are drawn in.When I look back at shows, I think the shows are well- produced, the music sounds amazing, my voice sounds good, but now I look back at a show I did yesterday and there’s an added magic to it. The truth is, I’ve played 500 shows now, and that’s why it’s a great show, not because it’s great production, great lighting, great set list — it’s the pure experience behind it.

How do your goals grow?

For me [my goals grow] whether it’s my music that I’m writing or it’s performing or it’s my personality and the way I’m handling business or anything I become very obsessed with it at any given time. As the tours get bigger, I become a lot more obsessed with making sure that the shows are good enough to be on the stage of an arena. Do you know what I mean?

Yeah. Do you think that comes with growing as an artist or just growing as a person?

I think a little bit of both and a lot of confidence. With a lot more popularity, there’s pressure in a good way to be a lot better and I think that’s what’s going on right now for me. You know, I feel like the more people get to know me and with my name starting to really get out there, I find in a good way pressure to really show up when it comes to my live performances.

Yeah, I completely understand that. If you’re performing at these dream stages, what is the next dream?

It can never end, you know what I mean? The dream is just to go bigger and better, bigger and better, bigger and better and when you think you’re at your biggest and your best, you’re not so that’s kind of the beauty of things — not just music but of anything. There’s no peak and that’s really cool.

i-D – Next month will be Canadian Vine star-turned-seriously massive pop heartthrob Shawn Mendes’ 19th birthday. The big day (make a note, 8 August) might be bang in the middle of his American tour, but he’s booked four days off work to move into the condo he just bought in Toronto. Hopefully his neighbours are braced for the inevitable double house-warming and birthday party situation that any right-minded 19-year-old would throw.

If you’re reading this, it’s pretty possible that you’re one of the 28 million people who have watched the video for his most recent single There’s Nothin’ Holding Me Back. Or maybe you’re one of his 23 million Instagram followers. Given all this, we thought we’d invite Shawn round for a chat, and he turned up with the biggest entourage we’ve had at i-D HQ since Japanese pop star Kyary Pamyu Pamyu popped by three years ago. Thankfully, he ditched them for some one-on-one with us — the label reps, security and management team loitering in reception whilst we sat with the (still fairly, all things considered) down to earth popstar. So let’s get stuck in.

Shawn, what do you do if you’re feeling a bit down, to help you get back to that place where there’s (sorry) nothin’ holding you back?
When I’m home sick or tired because I’ve been on the road for a long time — which is where I am now — I remember how much I believe that people were meant to do certain things. So sometimes, when I feel like I can’t do something, I end up having my best day and making my best work. I’m like, “Come on Shawn, this is what you are meant to do!” Other than that, perspective is the best thing in the world. I’ve just begun telling myself, live day-by-day, and when things get really hard, live hour-by-hour. It completely calms me down.

So mindful. When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be an actor, like, so so bad. I took acting classes, I auditioned for Disney, and then I realised how nervous I got with remembering lines. Then music kind of fell upon me when I was around 13. I started watching YouTube videos and singing and it became something that I was obsessed with. Next thing I know, I was fully in it.

What would you most like to change about the world?
I think what I’d like to most change about the world is both a good and bad thing. I wish people would care less, but also care more. Do you know what I mean? People care too much about the wrong things. If people were a little more light-hearted and cared about the right things, then it would all be a bit nicer.
