Shawn Mendes Shares His Feeling After Canceling His World Tour

Shawn Mendes talked about his mental health and the upcoming film, Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile.

Shawn Mendes cancelled his tour citing mental health reasons. However, in a recent interview with ET, the singer opened up about his mental health after the sudden cancellation of his Wonder World tour this summer. The singer revealed to the outlet that he now feels more relaxed ahead of the premiere of his new movie, Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile.

While gushing about the film, Mendes shared, “It doesn’t feel like such high pressure.” The movie will be the first time fans hear his singing voice after announcing cancelling the tour dates. “I think I needed some time just to ground and spend some time with family and friends and gain some perspective of how beautiful it is what I get to do for a living,” he added.

For the unversed, Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile is a film adaptation based on the children’s book series of the same name, which tells the story of a young boy who discovers a singing crocodile in the attic of his family’s new home. Mendes voices the musical reptile, and the movie includes several of Mendes’ original songs as well.

“When it comes to art and showing yourself I think that vulnerability is kind of what gives other people the power to feel that they can also be vulnerable,” Mendes said of what the film had taught him. “I felt really connected with Lyle’s sensitivity and sensitivity in the film. I feel a lot of that in myself.”
