Shawn counts on John

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Music -

SHAWN Men­des says he can al­ways count on John Mayer.

The 18-year-old mu­si­cian has been able to rely on the Grav­ity singer for help in nav­i­gat­ing the world of fame ever since the pair per­formed in Toronto to­gether in April, and Men­des has now said his reg­u­lar calls with Mayer, 39, have helped him lower his “anx­i­ety” lev­els.

He said: “(Per­form­ing with Mayer) was ob­vi­ously in­cred­i­ble. As a per­son I re­ally re­late to him and I think he’s awe­some. He’s a dude I can call – for him to be like, ‘Hey man, how’s life? You’re gonna be fine.’ And my anx­i­ety level’s down to a one in­stead of a 55. That’s some­thing that’s re­ally nice.”

And the Stitches singer is “ex­cited” for the next phase of his mu­si­cal jour­ney af­ter be­com­ing friends with Mayer, as he’s re­alised how things “only get bet­ter” the more he works on his mu­sic.

He said to Peo­ple mag­a­zine: “It’s cool to be able to see some­him one like be so cre­atively in­spired af­ter so many al­bums and af­ter so much tour­ing. It gets me so ex­cited to know that I can al­ways be this pumped up – and you only get bet­ter, be­cause Mayer has only got bet­ter.” – Bang Show­biz
