Shawn Mendes revealed that he was under great pressure to have a perfect body all the time, which made him compromise on his sleep hours.
“Some days I would have three hours of sleep, [because] I’d get up two hours early just to be able to work out,” the young singer told British GQ in an interview.
Mendes said the constant pressure to be the “pinnacle of fitness” at all times affected him adversely and he’d think to himself, “If you don’t work out, you’re going to lose fans.”
He further added that the 2019 Calvin Klein campaign only aggravated his concern.
According to the singer, the things that really helped him to come to terms with his body were meditating, journaling and the support from his girlfriend Camila Cabelo.
