Baby, there’s nothing holdin’ him back! Shawn Mendes was like a little kid as he gleefully dashed outside to feel the snow in a video shared on Sunday (Jan. 7).
But the 25-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter was seemingly not under parental supervision when he went outside in only shorts — no shirt, no shoes and nothing to cover the bottom half of his legs, never mind a coat, hat, scarf or mittens.
Mendes put on a brave face as he ran out to the snow-covered yard, carefree and barefoot, and laid right down on the ground, as seen in footage he posted on X and Instagram. While baring his abs in likely freezing temperatures, he admitted, “This is cold, bro.” In another video, he sledded down a small slope toward a wooded area, still barely clothed.
“you can take the boy outta Canada,” Mendes quipped in a caption for the clips. Fortunately, it looks like he warmed up by the fire (with a guitar) after his snowy plunge.
On Jan. 2, the pop star took to Instagram to reflect on the past year. “The biggest lesson for me this year has been to accept and welcome the lows of life… not to constantly need to change or fix something in order to feel high again, because i know if i really slow down and listen when i’m low there’s always something to hear,” Mendes noted.
