Shawn Mendes reveals his pre-fame career goal

Canadian sensation Shawn Mendes recently took time out from his busy live schedule to sit down with Us Weekly and share a few random facts about himself

The 'Stitches' star explained that he used to think he was a wizard, he loves to swim but hates deep water, and he wanted to act before he pursued a career as a singer.

Mendes also revealed other fun facts and confessed that he is very clumsy, adding that he has lost his wallet over 10 times and has broken his phone screen over five times.

The heartthrob took to his official Twitter page last night (June 18) and told his fans that his beloved pet cat has died at the age of 19: "My cat died today after a solid 19 years. Her name was Jasmine. RIP Jasmine. Love u."

Back in May, he told On Air with Ryan that he still can't believe that he gets to record, play and perform for a job: "It’s amazing. It actually has been the fastest thing in my entire life. I don’t think I’ve sat down for a second to think about how quick it’s happened, but it’s just been amazing. The reaction I’ve been getting — I couldn’t believe how well the album did. After working so hard on this for a bit and putting my all into it, to have a reaction like that on your very first album is something that makes you think, ‘I’m meant to do this type of thing.'”
