“I just needed some time to ground and spend time with family and friends,” Shawn Mendes said.
Shawn Mendes revealed in an emotional Instagram post back in July that he had to cancel the remainder of his Wonder World tour to deal with mental health issues: “After speaking with my team and working with an incredible group of health professionals, it has become more clear that I need to take the time I’ve never taken personally, to ground myself and come back stronger.”
Now, Shawn Mendes is returning to the limelight with upcoming movie Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile. Shawn’s new honey vocals will also be heard in the live-action/animated musical comedy for the first time following his breakup announcement. Ahead of the release of Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, the Mercy singer is candid about his mental health and his return to the stage: my feelings are great. It doesn’t seem like it requires a lot of pressure. I think it’s always going to take time.
“I think I needed some time just to ground and spend some time with family and friends and gain some perspective of how beautiful it is what I get to do for a living,” A lot of fans became worried because in an Instagram post, Mendes said he would be slowing down the recording of new songs and going on tours in the near future. However, in his aforementioned Instagram post, he assured fans that he would still be making new music and have touring on his mind, in the future.
Shawn Mendes prioritizes his mental health over anything else, and we’re glad to hear that!
So that being the case, Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile premieres in India on November 4, as well as Javier Bardem and Constance Wu as well.
