Justin Bieber’s Interview Gets Awkward FAST When He Says He Has No Idea Who Fellow Canadian Pop Star Shawn Mendes Is — Truth Or Shade??

no title

If you can’t keep track of all these YouTube and Vine stars blowing up these days, you’re not the only one!

Shawn Mendes is skyrocketing up the charts right now with his single Stitches, and many people are starting to learn his name!

One of those people is NOT fellow Canadian Justin Bieber, however, who just admitted he had no idea who the 17-year-old singer was!

Sitting down on 95.5’s Ralphie Tonight show, the What Do You Mean singer was asked if he had any advice for the YouTube and Vine sensation — to which Bieber responded:

“Who’s Shawn Mendes?”


While that comment could have been some Mariah Carey-style shade, Bieber (sort of) congratulated Mendes after hearing about his successful No. 1 album debut on the Billboard 200 chart, saying:

“Nice. Nice. Good for him.”

Do YOU think Justin really has never heard of Mendes before, or was he throwing a bit of shade? Watch the clip (below) and see what you think!
