q This on Shawn Mendes' Rolling Stone interview and the death of the celebrity profile
Every Friday, the q This music panel looks at the biggest stories in music news. Today, freelance music journalist Stuart Berman and CBC arts reporter Lisa Christiansen join Tom Power to talk about a new interview with Shawn Mendes from Rolling Stone, called Shawn Mendes: Confessions of a Neurotic Teen Idol.
The young pop star has been open about his feelings of insecurity and anxiety in the past, but this latest profile has left him feeling overexposed. It's raising a lot of questions about celebrity interviews, and why fewer stars seem to be open to taking part. The q This music panel breaks down the story.
