Shawn Mendes taking break from TikTok

71

Shawn Mendes has “extreme social media addiction” and is currently taking a break from TikTok.

The 23-year-old singer gets obsessed with various online platforms so regularly forces himself to take a break by deleting the apps from his devices, and he’s currently trying to avoid TikTok because it is “everything” to him.

He told Audacy: “TikTok is great. I have extreme social media addiction, so I have to really balance myself out.

“I have to delete those apps every now and again.

“I’m on a TikTok break right now. But when I have it, it’s everything…I am a child of Vine. They’re different, TikTok is much more advanced.”

Shawn’s girlfriend, Camila Cabello, previously revealed she also takes regular social media breaks for the sake of her mental health, because of the expectations to make everything look happy and positive.

But the ‘Havana’ hitmaker also understands the positive aspects of social media, including the fact it allows her to “take control” of her “own narrative” and show fans who she really is.

“The thing I’m thankful for social media is that it lets me kind of take control of my own narrative and actually share who I am, as opposed to people telling other people who they think I am. That definitely makes me feel better because the other thing is just really frustrating.”
