Shawn Mendes Explains Canceled Tour and Shaved Head

Shawn Mendes turned heads recently when he shaved his head.  Now the singer is revealing what inspired him to make the big change.

Mendes told The Wall Street Journal that he thinks “everyone should know what they look like with a shaved head.”

The “When You’re Gone” singer further explained his newly buzzed hair by saying, “I also was just feeling this urge to just shake myself up a little bit.”

Mendes also opened up about his mental health struggles after calling off his world tour in July.

He told the outlet, “It’s been a lot of work, but I think the last year and a half has been the most eye-opening and growing and beautiful and just healing process of my life. I’m also really grateful for all the people that were so accepting and loving and kind and understanding.”
