In a recent interview with The Guardian, Shawn Mendes admitted it’s “hurtful” for people to speculate about his sexuality.

The singer says his profile in Rolling Stone really “riled him up.”

“I don’t think people understand that when you come at me about something that’s stupid you hurt so many other people.”

Mendes also isn’t pleased about the “Mr. Nice Guy” perception, “What I don’t want to do is live the rest of my life thinking, “‘I wouldn’t do that because I’m known as Prince Charming.’” The second that someone corners you into a personality, you don’t want to be that person anymore.”

Does it make you mad when people question you about your sexuality? Do you think an artist is deceiving fans if they don’t reveal their sexuality?
