22-year-old ‘Stitches’ superstar Shawn Mendes is opening up about his sexuality, and says he’s tired of being called GAY!
In an interview with Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast, Shawn said he’s frustrated at the rumors. The ‘There’s Nothin’ Holding Me Back’ singer said: “It was so, so frustrating for me because there were some people in my life that I was very very close to, who were gay and in the closet. And I felt like this real anger for those people. It’s such a tricky thing. You want to say, ‘I’m not gay but it’d be fine if I was gay — but also there’s nothing wrong with being gay but I’m not.’ You don’t really know how to respond to the situation.”
Shawn continues: “I’ve realized that we just have to stop having to be experts and politicians about it, especially as a famous musician who’s a guy. I need to be really f—ing messy and say the wrong things and apologize and say the right thing after I apologize and be confused about how to respond when people say I’m gay. Everyone’s been calling me gay since I was 15 years old. I’m not gay and I’m like, ‘What does that mean?’ I had these problems with the way my voice sounded. I’m like, ‘How do I sit?’ I’m always first to cross my legs and sit with a position of this feminine style and I really suffered with that s–. think a lot of guys go through that and even worse than that there are just so many guys who are gay and in the closet and must be hearing s— like that and just being like, ‘I’m terrified to come out.'” Listen to Shawn Mendes’ full interview with Dax Shepard, 45, below and let us know what you think:…ARE YOU SAD THAT PEOPLE KEEP CALLING SHAWN GAY??
