SHAWN MENDES Comes Out As MARSHMELLO
Shawn Mendes, of course, is not Marshmello. But if you're just new to this game that the masked DJ plays every now and then, you would have probably fallen for the trick they laid out for the audience of the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards.
During the show, "Marshmello" took the stage to accept the Best EDM/Dance Artist or Group award for his Anne-Marie collaboration "Friends." But the crowd went wild when the DJ-producer removed his marshmallow helmet and revealed himself as Shawn. “Woah! Hot in there. Well, thank you so much!” said the Canadian heartthrob.
The two entertainers continued to tease and confuse fans on social media after the big reveal. "Secrets out... we’re a duo now," Marshmello wrote alongside a photo with the "In My Blood" crooner. Shawn’s manager also tweeted a photo of two Marshmellos and wrote in the caption: “Who’s the real @marshmellomusic?"
In this case, we have established for oblivious fans that Shawn Mendes is not Marshmello—but the more important thing we need to know is if the pair is working on a collaboration. Are they?
