Liam Payne and Shawn Mendes are already good friends, but Liam has been in this whole celebrity game a lot longer than Shawn, bursting into stardom when he was only 17.
So, if anyone knows how to handle the pressure, it's Liam. Especially after he got candid with his fans about how One Direction's craziness led him to over drinking and some mental health issues.
After Liam heard Shawn's new single "In My Blood", he felt the need to reach out to the star and make sure everything was okay.
What a man.
Talking to MTV’s TRL, Liam revealed how he offered his support to Shawn if he ever needed it.
"With the way this lifestyle is, we don’t help each other and there’s just not much point to it," Liam said, talking about the music industry. "I went and saw Shawn Mendes recently when I was at an awards show. I think he’s doing fantastic, but I could hear the slightest bit of sorrow in a recent song he wrote, and I wanted to make sure he was all good."
Ugh, the emotions. Can't.
He also spoke about the respect he has for Shawn. "He’s only 19 years old — not to belittle him in any way, shape, or form because I think he’s incredible," Liam said. "He’s got his head screwed on and he’s gone about it the right way. Now [that] he’s known all over the world, it’s a bit of a transformation."
He continued, "I just wanted to offer, 'If you ever have a problem or something’s going on, call me and we can have a chat about it.'"
We could all use a Liam Payne in our lives couldn't we?
Shawn recently opened up about the struggles he has been dealing with, after releasing his hit new song which seems to centre about anxiety.
Talking to Beats 1 Radio, he admitted that "[Anxiety] was something that hit me within the last year. Before that, growing up, I was a pretty calm kid, super steady."
Shawn even went on to say that he "spoke to a therapist a couple of times" to get his anxiety under control, as well as opening up more to his friends and family.
"I made a conscious effort to be more connected to the people in my life," he told The Sun. "I found I was closing myself off from everybody, thinking that would help me battle it, then realising the only way I was going to battle it was opening up and letting people in."
He added, "People forget how important it is to talk to family and friends about what’s going on in your life. The more you tell people how you feel, the more you understand it and have more control of your life."
