Shawn counts on John
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
