Shawn Mendes Was Nearly A DISNEY KID

Shawn Mendes has been busy spilling all the details on his childhood dreams and now we know the popstar nearly made it as a Disney kid!

In a recent interview with I-d, Shawn revealed his childhood dream was acting, NOT singing and he even did an audition for Disney.

“I wanted to be an actor, like, so so bad. I took acting classes, I auditioned for Disney, and then I realised how nervous I got with remembering lines,” Shawn said.

But by the time his teen years came around, Shawn realized singing was his real dream.

“Then music kind of fell upon me when I was around 13. I started watching YouTube videos and singing and it became something that I was obsessed with. Next thing I know, I was fully in it,” Shawn revealed.

With his latest single 'There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back' racking up 48.8 million views in less than three weeks and his second album debuting a number one in the US, Shawn certainly made a good choice!
