2 His songs are pathetic

His songs are not pathetic, they are very nice. Who is writing hate comments to shawn IS PATHETIC BECAUSE SHAWN SINGS FOR YOU AND YOU don't APRICIATE

These people commenting hate towards Shawn are probably just craving for attention. I would like to hear you singing in front of thousands of people. I would like to see your albums hit number one in the charts. I would like to see you keep your cool in front of crazy paparazzi and I would like you to sing while going through puberty. You people whining about Shawn need to grow a pair and find out what you really like in life; instead of obsessing about something that you don't like. Geez! Obviously no one is perfect!

This is ridiculous! U guys r complaining that shawn is too whiney. Like no. He's not offending women in any kind of way. He's just trying to demonstrate men can also be sensitive. Most celebrities do songs about their break ups and stuff, making the opposite gender look stupid. But shawn Mendes isn't.

Not In My Blood though. - allamassal

3 He is only famous for his looks

Yes I bought his album to listen to his face

Stop envying shawn. Yes he is beautiful and is very good looking. But he is a good hearted person and has an amazing voice. His passion for music is inspiring.

That's why I bought all his albums. Sure - CaptainCookie

Bahahahha I'm still wondering why people are jealous and bitch go listen to his voice first u’ll change your mind quickly

4 His utter annoyance

Has anyone ever told you that you are an utter annoyance?

These comments are racist. Offending shawns background is too much. Racist people. Would you haters like it if someone hates on you because of your background. I don't think so. So you guys can shut up

I don't agree in the way that some of the things about him are being said. But as a music major and a person who is deeply into music from today's culture and older musical cultures as well? I might say he is slightly overrated.

I call justin bieber annoying bitches - benitosthebest

5 He is selfish

How is he selfish? Huh give me one example. I bet u can't. He has a tattoo dedicated to his family just saying.

Ya that's why he spend his time off at hospitals meeting fans

What, he isn't selfish. Look at yourself

Well hi there Shawn welcome to my hell do you like my new guitar 🎸 maybe if you're lucky we can be a band together you seem like you would make "corps"😈 you seem "you're hopeless". You seem like you would make a great drummer ha😈ha😈 oh but I suppose it'll be hard drum without any arms do you ever feel a knife " pierce slowly into your flesh well gosh. I guess there's a first time for everything, come here you little rascal so I can torture you for hours and hours of fun!

6 His lyrics are stupid

Honestly I would like to see you do what he has done and he is so young so why don't you just shut up because his songs are amazing


For haters everything shawn does is stupid.

Not true. Performing at the Global Citizen Festival wasn't stupid to me. I don't think what he does is stupid, I don't even think he's stupid. I just think his lyrics are stupid. The concepts of his songs are repetitive and annoying. What does that have to do with what he does? - RaireFox

Cause your sayings aren’t? - benitosthebest

7 He has no musical talent

Yeah that's why his tickets for Madison Square Garden were sold out in less than 5 minutes - HY

Yes, everyone else sounds the same too, I feel like it's copying from someone else, his content may be not THAT bad, but his voice definitely not original. And people ask why I like Imagine Dragons, their both content and voice are original.

I feel that's true, every artist from LA to Timbuktu sings about loving a girl, leaving a girl, or wanting a girl, its tired, tried and overused. I believe his beauty is blinding people to his voice, he can't really hit high notes, and he never really sings low notes, its just a bland cut & copy voice.

His newest hit (In My Blood) proves this wrong. - allamassal

8 He brainwashed teenage girls

9 His fame makes Rae Sremmurd unknown across Canada

This is a reason to like him. - WonkeyDude98

No, more popular artists, like Beyonce, also brainwashed everyone so they don't listen to Rae

Shawn Mendes has no talent but Rae SREMMURD does? LOL, are you on drugs? Don't answer that, because u obviously are!

Good. Rae Sremmurd don't deserve fame. - allamassal

10 People hate any guy that teenage girls like

This is just because of stereotypes, not him. - WonkeyDude98

Not his fault - CaptainCookie


Vuck he's

The Contenders

11 He is whiny

You are whiny by writing reasons to hate a guy that has NEVER EVEN SPOKEN TO YOU

How is he whiny? Give me an example, I bet u can't. because there isn't

All his songs are really just, something that makes me want to punch someone in the face. Like, you know the emphasis kids put on words when they don't get what they want? He sounds like that.

He's not!

14 His voice

He is going through puberty and it's coming to an end. When he was 14 he reached F5 in his cover. He now can only hit D5 safely - right now if Shawn Mendes hits a note higher than D5 he'll get damage. In fact he has already experienced a bit of vocal damage In "I Know What You Did Last Summer." He should give his voice a break or he can ruin it after his tour

I feel like u waste your time to find negative things to say about him PLEASE PEOPLE don't SAY ANYTHING IF YOU don't LIKE HIM KEEP IT TO YOURSELF FOR ONCE - benitosthebest

I think when he prepared for his studio album he heard Taylor Swift sing and he got impressed so he altered his voice about an octave higher and copied her music and videos.

His songs are bad

15 His songs are overplayed

He has like 3 songs played on the radio and the only overplayed one is stitches and there are much better ones so please don't base someone on their radio songs.. do your research

I don't get it u just said that he is only famous for his looks then u come and say his songs are overplayed make up your mind - benitosthebest

He doesn't run a radio station. It;s not his fault

He is sooo overrated that its unbelievable...

16 He looks like an armpit

You look like ear wax

I really wanna understand - benitosthebest



17 All of his songs sound the same

No, they don't! If you listened to all of his songs, you would notice that every single song of him sounds different and unique

Then why would he make 3 albums of 16 tracks in each of them if they all sound the same? - benitosthebest


I'll tell you some of his songs and what the meaning behind them are:

Treat You Better; a boy who likes a girl that is dating someone who isn't treating her very well and the boy knows he could give her much more.

Mercy; having a passion and being so absorbed with it that it takes over your life and sometimes you need to beg for Mercy and take a break,
This song is describing how a boy is deeply in love with someone and would do anything for them. However they keep repeatedly hurting him and it’s taking a toll on him. He can’t handle anymore torture from his lover and is asking for mercy.

A Little Too Much; a girl who has too much going on and bottles up all of her emotions and can't deal with it but still keeps to herself.

Roses; a boy who's girlfriend breaks up with him, despite the fact that he still loves her. She moves on and gets another boyfriend while he is alone and he thinks about her all the time. He wonders if the love she has for ...more

18 His songs are annoying

Treat You Better is an annoying anthem for all little sniveling boys.

19 He sounds like Taylor Swift and copies her music

Ok, I Have A Question, Why Is Everyone Comparing Shawn Mendes And Taylor Swift? , You Know Your Comparing A Teenage Kid Who Makes Some Mediocre Songs To A Former Country Female Singer That Now Just Makes Songs About Break Ups, Right? - VideoGamefan5

Some of his lyrics are based on lyrics of Taylor Swift songs (Stitches, one of the lines: your words cut deeper than a knife. That is based on this line from Bad Blood: Still got scars from the back of her knife)

At her concert in Edmonton Taylor Swift got attacked on stage. Last year he got attacked on stage as well.

He also copies justin biebers music

20 He smells like coconut

How is that a bad thing?

I love coconut

Cause justin bieber spiting on his fans isn’t immature please - benitosthebest

22 His voice is annoying

What the heck he is the only guy to not use autotune in his songs

Yup that's true

Its not because he has an accent that is so beautiful

Very annoying...

23 He is ugly

So stupid and a total stupid butt head

He looks like an ugly crossover between a pig and a goat

Mick Jagger is so much hotter

"people like him for his look"
"He is ugly" definitely ran out of ideas - HY

24 He lied about his age

I think so? Who can prove it


What the hell? u really came from nowhere to say that - benitosthebest

25 He is overrated
26 His videos

Have you seen the end? its to raise awareness for abusive relationships? I bet you say that donation commercials scare you too

No SERIOUSLY! Stop trolling!

Look Shawn your video for Treat You Better really freaked the daylight out of me. As well as a million other little kids. Do you even CARE that little kids are watching abusive scenes like that?

Excuse me miss, but I believe that Channel V warns you about the videos and gives you age restrictions. It's the children's fault for continuing to watch and the parents fault for letting them watch. If you think it's too much for a 10 year old like you to handle, there's a door and a remote to turn the T.V. off.

That video was to 'raise' awareness of domestic violence, so I don't understand why you're complaining.

27 His songs all convey the same theme of whining about a girl because she doesn't love him

I'm pretty sure that you've only heard like 2 songs. Have you heard a little too much, or understand, or hold on - HY

Yes! Build a bridge and get over it Shawn!

It's a tired, boring, overused theme that comes off as "I'm totally a nice guy so why wont you date me" in his music. Even other artists branch out into different themes relating to love, but Shawn just continues to do the same boring theme over and over again.
(Before you chime in about "Treat You Better", the song isn't about abuse. The music video is. The song itself makes no reference to abuse at all.)

Yeah, because he hasn’t written a song about anxiety, (in my blood). Another about how the world is going, and all the terrorist attacks that are happening (youth). One about finally finding your place in live and remembering your friends that you’ll always be there for them. Or another about his father. I could continue telling songs that aren’t about girls who don’t like him back but the comment would be so long so I better stop

28 He screamed at fan and refused to sign autographs

He thinks he wrote an amazing song “Stitches” which wasn’t even good

That wasn’t a fan. The guy wanted to sell Shawn’s sign, and he just protected his fans from paying too much money. If you don’t know the whole story, then f. off


29 If you hear his voice too many times, it annoys you a lot

You're the only one who feels that way - benitosthebest


30 Most of his fame is from Vine

He was discovered on vine then grew to make more music and turn it into a serious career. Everyone has to start somewhere and at least he worked hard for his fame.

Errm so. How is this bad.? He sings. So what. Stop hating losers

Wow I may not like him but that's racist.

He also got fame from YouTube, where he first started posting covers.

Justin Bieber got most of his fame on YouTube, you probably accept that. I don't see a difference between the two.

31 His defending comments are all by teenage girls

Yeah because teenage girls love him is that so hard for you to understand


32 His song lyrics bother you

Maybe because you don't seem to understand them - HY

NOT AT ALL! - MrsMendes


33 The tone of his voice

Come and say that about Shawn when you've sold out Madison Square Garden in 3 minutes.

I don't understand why his facial expressions are bothering you. If you don't like it, don't look at him. His facial expressions have nothing to do with it.

May I clarify, that not all of Shawns songs are about bashing someone (the only song he wrote about someone getting bashed was Stitches and the person getting bashed was him) and/or about having sex. None of the songs on Handwritten are about having sex, listen to the whole album if you have to. As for Illuminate, the only songs about sex are Lights On and Reputation.

Please reconsider before ever writing a comment like this again,

Stop using Justin bieber's name

Just like Bieber, in every song he sounds either like he's bashing someone, or ready to have sex. It's creepy and pointless. His facial expressions are freaky.


34 He is an idiot

Wow. You have no idea what you are talking about - CaptainCookie

You ran out of ideas, haven't you? - HY

He's a complete idiot

35 Releases an album called 'handwritten' while not having written 1 song on the entire album

Dude. Lies. He wrote like 75% of the song - CaptainCookie

GET. THERAPY. He wrote almost EVERY song on the album

36 He's a liar

Yep ran out of ideas - HY

Well, some of Taylor Swift's songs are about boys lying but none of her songs are about this teen


37 He's ugly

What no he's not. And don't think I'm only liking him for his looks either. His looks was just a bonus after I fell in love with his music

Not really - CaptainCookie

Sehr gut


38 He cries over little things

What? - CaptainCookie

39 Yelling at his fans

It wasn't even a fan

I watch a video that his yelling to his fans IN RUDE WAY! believe it or not it's face-to-face

Again and again u wont stop are u? - benitosthebest

40 Yelling at his fans in a rude way

When did he do that? - CaptainCookie

Third time u said that - benitosthebest

41 His voice sounds older than him.. thought he was in his late 20s at least.
42 His songs are terrible

No u


43 His fans get extremely butthurt whenever anyone criticizes him

I mean all the comments on this list from Shawn Mendes fans pretty much speak for themselves.

44 He sounds like a baby


45 Too modern

The music is too modern and brainwashes young teens. listen to the stones or the beatles instead. PLEASE. it'll make your life so much better. and the lyrics of their songs are really meaningful.

Cause lyrics to a song that talks about anxiety is meaningless? - benitosthebest
