Last night, Shawn Mendes stepped out to celebrate Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood issue.
“Extra’s” Renee Bargh spoke to Mendes, who clarified his statements in the issue about being single. He reiterated, “I didn’t mean it like I have to be single, I meant love isn’t something you should chase because then it isn’t real, so you have to just kind of let it happen.”
Mendes also pointed out that he isn’t too busy for a relationship, saying, “I don’t think you ever really get too busy for a relationship. I think you make time for it 'cause that’s important."
The 20-year-old also dished on opening the VMAs. He said, “It was fun it was nerve-racking with the rain. I never had rain on me like that.”
At the show, Shawn had the honor of presenting the Video Vanguard Award to Jennifer Lopez. He dished, “The funny thing [was] we were walking off stage and she goes, 'I owe you one,' and I was like, 'No, I owe you one, I was the one who got to present you.'”
When Renee suggested a collaboration with J.Lo, Shawn responded, “That would be cool.”
