Taylor Swift Is Making Shawn Mendes’ Dreams Come True

Shawn is 'blown away' about going on tour with Taylor.

Things are just going to keep getting bigger for Shawn Mendes.

Like so big that even he can't believe it.

Just seven months ago, Shawn was making a name for himself as a Vine star, but now he's taking his turn as a pop star. He just released his brand new video and single for "Something Big," and it was just announced that he will be going on tour with Taylor Swift for her 1989 World Tour.

"It's completely surreal..." he told MTV News recently during an interview in front of 30 of his fans. "The fact that I'm going on tour with Taylor Swift like how crazy is that? It's crazy. As crazy as you guys think it is I'm blown away just as much as you guys are. All I can say is that it's surreal I really cant explain it."

So what was it like getting that phone call that he was hitting the road with the biggest pop star in the world? Basically it was the "biggest news" ever.

"Taylor Swift to me is the coolest tour I could possibly be on ever. You can't really beat that tour so that was the biggest news," he said. "It's almost like as a kid when you try out for a rec soccer team or hockey team and you get the call like you made the team. I had that same exact feeling."

Shawn, who is gearing up to release his debut album, will be joining Taylor starting May 22, 2015 on the North American leg of her tour. Oh, and don't mind Shawn if you see him from time to time pinching himself, since he still can't believe that he will be taking the stage in front of thousands of fans.

"I cant really think about it because by the time it gets there I'll start getting excited," he said. "I will have to pinch myself every day when I'm on that tour. She's Taylor Swift, it's crazy."
