Shawn Mendes channels Elvis Presley in the army in his new photoshoot with Hero magazine.
The Illuminate singer has discovered posing shirtless gets him a lot of attention, not that the 18-year-old needs it; his album debuted at No. 1 and he was just named as one of Time’s 30 Most Influential Teens of 2016.
Mendes graces the cover of Hero magazine where he opens up about his punishing touring schedule and his most memorable moment on tour. Did we mention he’s shirtless?
“I’m scared of over-using my voice to be honest with you. I don’t write in a low voice and quietly, when I write I’m singing full volume as hard as I can, as good as I can, because how am I supposed to know if it sounds good if I don’t?”
“When I was in Nashville… it was the night before I turned eighteen and I was just feeling really good, I was up there and I was playing ‘Ruin’ and my mum and dad were there… I just noticed for a second how many people were in front of me and it was just a really heart-whelming feeling.”
