LOOK: SHAWN MENDES Says JOHN MAYER Inspired Him To Be A Better Artist

Shawn Mendes already feels the weight of fame after being in the spotlight and touring at such a young age of 19. Good thing, he has someone to lean on. Kudos to his musical idol John Mayer.

 

Thank you so much @johnmayer

The "Stitches" singer shared in a PEOPLE interview how his mentor inspired him to be a better artist and to go on despite anxiety attacks. "He's a dude I can call - for him to be like, 'Hey man, how's life? You're gonna be fine'. And my anxiety levels down to a one instead of a 55. That's something that's really nice."

"It's cool to be able to see someone like him be so creatively inspired after so many albums and after so much touring," he added. "It gets me so excited to know that I can always be this pumped up - and you only get better, because Mayer has only got better."

The two singers performed together last April during John's Canada show. Watch their "Mercy x In Your Atmosphere" mash-up here:
