Shawn Mendes is just like everyone else – and needs a break from the virtual world from time to time. The 20-year-old heartthrob revealed that he is currently taking a break from social media. "I struggle with social media a lot, too," the In My Blood singer shared during a fan Q&A. "To be honest with you guys, I deleted Instagram and Twitter three days ago, but I send my manager pictures and I'm like, ‘Can you post this?'" The Nervous singer has always been active on Twitter and Instagram, and makes it a point to use the social sites to connect with his fans.

However, the crooner admits that it’s good for him to unplug and leave his posts in the hands of his team. "Sometimes I need to take a break from it, too, because it gets to me just as much as it gets to anyone else," he added. "You have to take care of yourself. It's really really important. Make yourself come first." Shawn didn’t go into the reason why he decided it was the right time to take the apps off of his phone.
