Shawn Mendes admits he’s been at rock bottom for a few years now. It’s hard to imagine something like this from an artist who is successful and seems to have everything he needs, but no one can know what’s on people’s minds.
In an interview with Billboard, he said that he fell headlong into a method to recover from the bad phase: meditation and study. Mendes took a deep dive into the Bhakti movement, one of the three doctrines of Hinduism.

“I think everyone has a moment when they decide it’s time to do something different” Mendes says naturally. Now, spirituality is “a part of my life that is much bigger than I really let on”.

“My priorities fluctuated and my focus changed throughout my life”, Camila said.
“Those years when we were dating, even while I was writing this album, and even now, I think the focus wasn’t really on how I can be a whole person. And besides, my focus wasn’t even on my career.“, she reported.
“And the same thing with those years we were together. My focus was just: How can I live a happy life and be in a healthy relationship? I did a lot of therapy“.
“I think as I get older, yes, priorities change. And I feel like it was like that for both of us. Because we both started so young too, we’re really learning to be healthy adults and that sometimes means not having the number one focus in your career. And that’s okay“.
