Shawn Mendes is turning up the heat with his latest post. Over the weekend, Shawn took to his Instagram Stories to share a photo of him chilling outdoors without a shirt. The singer has clearly been hitting the gym as he showed off his chiseled chest and flat abs. Last week, Shawn made headlines when it was revealed that he had cut off his signature locks. The "Treat You Better" singer was spotted on Saturday, January 7th, with a buzz cut, which can also be seen in this latest photo. Mendes also caught the eyes of fans after he went skinny dipping in a freezing-cold lake earlier this winter.
The new haircut and shirtless pic come as Shawn continues to take a break from the stage. Last year, the singer announced he would be canceling the remaining dates of his Wonder World Tour to focus on his mental health. He made the cancellation official in a post to social media, citing that the decision came after speaking with his team and a group of health professionals, saying, "it has become more clear that I need to take the time I've never taken personally, to ground myself and come back stronger."
Later on, Shawn opened up more about his decision. "I think I needed some time just to ground and spend some time with family and friends and gain some perspective of how beautiful it is what I get to do for a living," he said, adding that he's feeling more relaxed. Despite the break, Shawn has been keeping fans updated on his life through social media.
