Shawn Mendes Opens Up About ‘Having a Hard Time on Social Media’ Following Breakup

Shawn Mendes revealed that he is “having a little bit of a hard time with social media” following his split with Camila Cabello.

The singer took to Instagram to share thank fans for their support of his new song, ‘It’ll Be Okay.’ Mendes told fans, “I’m having a little bit of a hard time with social media at the moment and just kind of my relationship with it. But I have lots of people sending me videos and telling me what’s going on.”

“When I make music, the ultimate goal is to be sitting there and have my own truth revealed to me,” he continued. “And a lot of the time when I’m writing songs I’m usually using music as a platform to be able to get to a place inside of myself that I wouldn’t be able through by just talking with people or thinking about it.”

He added, “And I hope that’s because there’s some truth in the song and there lies honesty in it and I just feel so proud of that song and I feel so grateful that you guys are connecting with it and I feel so grateful that people are be vulnerable with it and people are just having fun with it.”

“I just wanted to come on here and show my love and appreciation,” Mendes said. “I see you guys and I see how much love you’re giving this song and giving me and that means the world to me. So thank you, I love you guys.”
