Shawn Mendes got his start singing Justin Bieber songs on Vine, so it was shocking to hear that the "What Do You Mean?" singer has no clue about the Canadian pop star! When asked what he thinks about the success of the "Stitches" guy, the Calvin Klein model claimed not to have heard of him.
In an interview with 95.5 PLJ, he asked, “Who is Shawn Mendes?”
The DJ responded that he thought they might know each other because they're both from the same region of Canada, saying, “He’s on Island, he’s from Southern Ontario, he’s 17 years old, he has a song called ‘Stitches’ that’s doing okay at pop radio.”
“Nice. Good for him. No, I don’t know him, but I will check him out. For sure,” Justin answered.
Sounds pretty heartfelt to us! We're just shocked that JB hasn't heard Shawn's music yet. Has he been living under a rock?!
Did you think that Justin was throwing shade, or did he honestly not know? Tell us in the comments!
