It's now been a day since our world was rocked by the revelation that a famous pop star enjoys marijuana. In an interview with Rolling Stone, three-time Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award-winner Shawn Mendes, said the following:
"I love weed...I wouldn’t tweet that — not yet, at least — but it’s really good for me. When I’m home, I’ll smoke and then play guitar for seven hours."
Seems...pretty chill, actually. So how did Mendes' many online fans react? Well, some thought he might actually die.
.@ShawnMendes I love you. I know you have your insecurities and stuff but like who doesn’t. I know the the Rolling Stones interview that it says you take weed, now I’m not saying it’s wrong, it doesn’t change you as a person in my eye but please don’t abuse the drug+— G͙e͙o͙r͙g͙i͙a͙ (@malonemendes) November 26, 2018
My mom found out Shawn mendes smokes weed and took my vip tickets away and sold them :(— Sky and Daisy Prado (@allieprado5) November 26, 2018
Of course, many Mendes fans were quick to point out that there's nothing to worry about here.
The moral of the story? Perhaps we should all log off and go play guitar for seven hours.
