Shawn Mendes opens up to fans about feeling ‘overwhelmed and overexcited’

Shawn Mendes has said he feels “overwhelmed and overexcited” but was afraid to admit it in case people “think less of me”.

The 23-year-old Canadian singer opened up about his personal struggle in an open letter to fans posted on social media on Wednesday.

The Grammy winner, who rose to fame in 2016 with his song “Stitches,” said despite his success, he felt like “it’s either going to fly or drown.”

In a tweet shared with his 26.7 million followers, Mendes wrote, “I’m afraid people will think less of me once they know and see the truth. You might bore me.

“In those moments when I’m feeling down, I either show myself or hide.

“The truth is, in his current form, a 23-year-old who constantly feels like he’s either flying or drowning.

“Maybe it’s just being in your 20s (I don’t know), or maybe that’s just me.

“The truth is I’m overwhelmed and overstimulated.”

Mendes went on to reassure concerned fans that he was “okay,” adding that he hopes sharing his “truth” will “resonate with some people.”
