Liam Payne Reached Out To Shawn Mendes About The Pressures Of Fame

Liam Payne has revealed that he checked in with Shawn Mendes to check how he was coping with becoming a global icon in such a short space of time.

The former One Direction singer clearly has a shedload of experience when it comes to being famous and revealed that he was a bit concerned after hearing some “sorrow” in one of Shawn’s latest songs.

Let’s get checking out how good (read: awful) a bunch of grown men are at applying false lashes…

In an interview with MTV’s TRL, the 25-year-old pointed out that musicians should always have each other’s backs in private, revealing: “With the way this lifestyle is, we don’t help each other and there’s just not much point to it.

“I went and saw Shawn Mendes recently when I was at an awards show. I think he’s doing fantastic, but I could hear the slightest bit of sorrow in a recent song he wrote, and I wanted to make sure he was all good.”


“He’s only 19 years old — not to belittle him in any way, shape, or form because I think he’s incredible,” Liam said. “He’s got his head screwed on and he’s gone about it the right way. Now [that] he’s known all over the world, it’s a bit of a transformation.”

He added: “I just wanted to offer, ‘If you ever have a problem or something’s going on, call me and we can have a chat about it.’”

This comes as Liam opened up about being in the world’s biggest boyband, saying that the experience “nearly killed him,” before emphasizing how important it is for young people (famous or not) to open up about their mental health with loved ones.
