Shawn Mendes Actually Can’t Wait for the Day He Gets His Heart Broken

By  | 

Judging by his songs, it’s safe to say that Shawn Mendes is no stranger to heartache. However, the singer revealed in a recent interview with Foquinha that he feels like he’s due for a huge heartbreak very soon… and he’s actually looking forward to it! That probably sounds really strange, but there’s actually a pretty good explanation for it.

When asked if he’s ever had his heart broken, Shawn admitted that although he has kinda-sorta suffered for love, but he’s never really had a full-blown broken heart after being in a relationship. “I have mildly [suffered for love], not as much as I make it sound like,” he said. “I need to get my heart broken so I can write another album. I don’t think I’ve ever had my heart broken.” Fair enough.

While the 19-year-old admitted that he hasn’t had the worst of the worst when it comes to love, he knows that heartbreak is just around the corner. Mainly because it’s inevitable, but the “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” singer is super excited for that time to come. “I’m lucky, but that means it has to happen. But that’s good,” he said. “I can’t wait for it to happen because I’ll probably get some good songs out of it.” Anything for great music, right?

Anyway, Shawn may be looking forward to some inspirational heartbreak, but he might forget about those plans as soon as he finds out that he is the second most nominated artist at the 2017 EMAs. Shawn managed to nab FIVE nominations this year while his former tourmate, Taylor Swift, dominates the list with SIX noms. Meanwhile Kendrick Lamar and Ed Sheeran are following closely behind Shawn with four nominations a piece.

Heartbreak, EMA nominations, heartbreak, EMA nominations… we’re sure you know which one is better.
