I’ll never forget the first time I became a Shawn Mendes fan. I was back home in Seattle driving the family car when I started to notice every radio station playing “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back.” I didn’t want to like it, but this played out exactly like the scene in “Easy A.” Emma Stone hears that Natasha Bedingfield song for the first time until it becomes her favorite song!
Honestly though, loving Shawn Mendes isn’t a bad thing. I was pleasantly surprised watching this short doc. I also had no idea that he became famous through YouTube. He’s a Justin Bieber with a little less extra and we don’t mind it. Shawn seems like a kid with a good head on his shoulders. If you haven’t listened to his last two albums (my favorites!) you should definitely check them out.
