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.

VARIETY – Popular MTV franchise “Unplugged” will return to the network this fall. Shawn Mendes, who’s currently No. 1 at Top 40 radio with his latest single, “Nothing Holdin’ Me Back,” will kick off the reboot with a performance from downtown Los Angeles’ Theater at Ace Hotel. “MTV Unplugged Shawn Mendes” is scheduled to air on Sept. 8.

“MTV Unplugged,” which features music acts reinterpreting their songs — and usually a cover — acoustically, first aired in 1989 and has showcased memorable performances from the likes of Nirvana, Jay-Z, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Miley Cyrus, Tony Bennett, Mariah Carey, Katy Perry, Lil Wayne, and Adele, among others. But for 19-year-old Mendes, it was a clip of Pearl Jam performing on the show in 1992 that got him hooked on the concept — even if it took place years before he entered the world. “It wasn’t so much about the commercial, showman side of it; It was really about the music,” Mendes tells Variety.

Mendes and his band have been rehearsing diligently in the days leading up to the Aug. 27 MTV Video Music Awards, where Mendes is nominated for Best Pop Video (for “Treat You Better”) and is set to perform. “We’ve been working our asses off just trying to figure out the most beautiful way to play these songs in a smaller, stripped-down way that still feels as impactful,” he says. “I feel like if I can do this right, then it will be a moment for me — where people can really understand and see me as a musician and a singer, and where I’m coming from.”

According to Amani Duncan, MTV SVP of Music and Executive In Charge of Music for “Unplugged,” for the “2.0 version” of the series, which had aired semi-regularly in the U.S. through 2009, each show will take place in a different venue of some meaning to the featured artist. “Let’s take it to cool locations” was the thought,” Duncan explains. “Like where the artist played their first major show, or maybe they choose a location to make a pro-social statement, or it’s, ‘I always wanted to play Carnegie Hall.’”

That the “Unplugged” franchise may not have been familiar to millennials wasn’t a concern. Adds Duncan: “At MTV, the brand equity is still so strong. It gives us an opportunity to bring back nostalgia and also recruit an entirely new consumer who may not know what ‘Unplugged’ was because they weren’t born.”
