Shawn Mendes Thinks People Took Justin Bieber's Shade 'The Wrong Way’

Shawn reveals he's down for a collaboration with Justin.

A lot of people may have thought Justin Bieber threw some shade at Shawn Mendes last week when he revealed he had no idea who he was, but there is someone that wasn't bothered at all about it: Shawn.

After Justin revealed during an interview that he had never heard of his fellow Canadian, he did what he promised and checked him out. "Shawn I checked out the music and I'm so proud! So glad to see another boy from Canada crushin it. #canadiansdoitbetter," he captioned a photo of Shawn's single, "Stitches."

"It was really cool, really sweet of him. I was really happy," Shawn told us at the iHeart Radio Music Festival of Justin's shoutout. "Obviously, people took that the wrong way, so it was really nice of him to do that."

Shawn even wants to take this newfound musical friendship to the next level, saying that he would "love" to collaborate with Justin. Fingers crossed!
