Shawn Mendes: 'The interaction between me and my fans is so important'

Shawn Mendes has spoken of the bond between himself and his fans.

The singer and musician found fame through the internet and he has a large social networking following.

Speaking in a new feature with the Telegraph, the rising star said there is huge importance placed on the relationship he has with his devotees.

Mendes said: "It’s so important, the interaction between me and them.

"Sometimes I ask how they’re doing and they tell me stories. It’s cool. They know when it’s me [tweeting] or not."

Speaking meanwhile about his worries, the 16-year-old added:

"I don’t want to just be a teenage star. I want to be known by parents and I want them to go, 'Oh I love that song; he’s really good for his age. My daughter loves him but I love him too'."
