Over the past two years, Shawn Mendes has stolen our hearts by going from Vine song covers to the radio. And we’ve had the opportunity of watching this Canadian pop star’s career explode right in front of our very eyes. Meaning that his life quickly went from being seemingly normal to totally not in a short amount of time. With hits like “Life of the Party” and, now, “Stitches,” he is slowly taking over the music industry and proving to us just how crazy busy his life is.
And, we’re not going to lie, we’re a tiny bit jealous. Seriously, just look at the photos he posts on Instagram — the difference between our lives and his is readily apparent. And, yes, we know that all celebrities have a habit of gloating over Instagram — including his possible new girlfriend Camila Cabello’s Instagram posts — But his posts mixed with his totally humble and chill attitude is what makes his Instagram account bring tears to our eyes. Seriously, we’ll just show you how amazing his life is:
1. When he went platinum. Yeah, having the song “Life of the Party” go platinum in the United States isn’t a big deal at all. NBD.
2. Biggest Birthday celebration ever. We totally have that many people sing happy birthday to us on our birthdays. Pfft!
3. Hanging with Ed Sheeran. Let us just call up Ed now and ask him to get a drink or something. Yeah, we just call him Ed.
4. Being a cover star. Because being on the cover of Billboard magazine is kind of a huge deal.
5. Stage views. Look at that view! Look at those fans! It gives us chills just thinking about what that crowd must mean to him.
6. Recording session. Just hitting the studio and creating even more beautiful magic.
7. Tour bus driver selfie. We would take a selfie with our tour bus driver too…If we had one.
8. Buying himself. When you’re walking through Target and you suddenly see your own face and hear your own voice. That must feel super crazy!
9. Giant picture of his face. If only record companies kept giant pictures of our faces on the walls. That must be weird to see a picture of yourself that big on the wall, right?
10. John Garadedian and his planes. It’s not everyday you can check out a radio legend’s personal planes, right? Unless, maybe you’re Shawn.
11. Stage selfies. And people thought Ellen and Miley’s selfies were crazy! Imagine trying to fit that many people into a selfie?
12. Tour tees. When t-shirts with your name on them go on sale to the public and you have one too. #casual
13. iTunes charts. When you subtly share how you’re slowly taking over the music industry.
14. Personal tour bus. When you have a huge bus that personally drives you around the country and it has a giant picture of your face plastered on the side of it.
15. Partying with Tay. Um…jealous, much?! Seriously, how do we get an invite to this?
16. Music videos. The only times we’re posting photos like that on Instagram is when we’ve actually been beat up. But for Shawn? Well, he just got to look like that for fun in his new “Stitches” music video.
17. Going to surf. If only our surf board was a Teen Choice Award. But, on a more serious note, we feel like proud parents looking at this post.
18. Personal trailer. Not only does he sing, but he now acts too. When he’s not chilling in his personal tour bus, he can just go to set of The 100 and head into his personal trailer.
Ugh! How amazing is his life?!
