If there’s one thing Shawn Mendes wants you to know about him, it’s that he’s not gay. Apparently, a lot of fans have been accusing him of having a ‘gay vibe,’ so he used Snapchat to set the record straight. Watch his video confession here.
“I Know What You Did Last Summer” singer Shawn Mendes, 17, posted several video messages to his Snapchat account on June 23, declaring that he’s definitely not gay, despite the “gay vibes” his fans have been picking up on.
Shawn said the following in a series of Snapchat videos:
So I don’t usually do this or bring up problems but I was on YouTube just watching some of my interviews and I was going down the comments and noticed a lot of people were saying I gave them a “gay vibe”.
First of all, I’m not gay. Second of all, it shouldn’t made a difference if I was or if I wasn’t. The focus should be on the music and not my sexuality.
Now I know 99% of you guys aren’t making assumptions like this but this is for the 1% of you that are. I just want you guys before you judge someone on the way they speak or act to think, I want you guys to think ‘hey, maybe I shouldn’t be judging someone’ or ‘wait it actually doesn’t even matter.’ They can do or be or feel however they want to feel.
Now I’m not frustrated because people were saying that I was gay at all, I have no problem with that cause it wouldn’t make a difference to me. I’m frustrated because in this day and age people have the audacity to…write online that I’m gay as if it were a badall I really have to say about that. I just wish those 1% of people would grow up. I love you guys.
