Shawn Mendes - "When You're Gone" + General Discussion

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by -Jay-, Aug 7, 2021.

  1. Wow... for his management to allow him to cancel 80 shows, some difficult things must be going on. I had a feeling that, if he's struggling so bad with his mental health, 3 weeks away wouldn't be enough for him to feel secure enough to take on such a long tour.

    “You’ve got x days to get back in shape” (but no pressure!!1!) in general doesn’t really work with mental issues, does it?
    Does seem like he’s having a tough time but I try to think of this statement as a positive when comparing it to probably countless scenarios where an artist in a similar state just ‘kept pushing through’

  3. I remember reading this "blind item" months ago about this big name being forced to go on tour by his management... i don't really pay too much attention to gossip in general, but ever since Shawn's first postponement, I keep wondering if that's him (if factual).
     
  4. I just hope that he isn't hurting too much from the cancellation and after the initial hideousness for him today that he will start to feel relief. I very much get the feeling that he might end up being more of a recording artist than a touring act. Just hope he feels better soon.
     
  5. Bless him I hope he gets the rest and help he needs. Definitely not a quick fix sorta thing when it comes to mental health matters. I hope for his sake the break he takes comes with changed behaviour of the people around him who will hopefully position Shawn’s wellbeing over treating him like a cash cow.

  6. I just keep thinking of the one scene in the Wonder documentary where he went home and finally seems happy. I really hope he gets the chance to be a person first for a little bit, fuck whatever the labels or charts say. I know he’s said and down stupid things but as he has matured he’s shown himself to be a positive force in music and the culture and I hope he gives himself the time he needs to focus on the positives and rebalance himself.

  7. It's interesting because I feel like a lot of his 'brand' and 'image' is this young Bruce Springsteen styling, especially when it comes to touring. And so, well, that is definitely incompatible now. Regardless, I hope he's well.

  12. 'Heartbeat' is brilliant.
     
  13. This album feels like it will be a mop up of songs that were not good enough to make the last two albums, and the movie looks diabolical… but I really do find myself rooting for him?
