Shawn Mendes Explained His Recent Onstage Fall, and It's Kind of Hilarious

If you've been active on social media recently, you may have seen video of Shawn Mendes falling during a performance popping up in your feed.

The singer had a little onstage mishap in Quebec, so naturally, it went viral. Luckily, Shawn's fine after his fall, and he's even willing to laugh about it.

Shawn explained what happened during an interview with Dave Thornton of Australia's talk show The Project, and it's a pretty funny story. Apparently, he was just so amped that Foo Fighters leads singer Dave Grohl that he got careless and made a bad call.

"I was so excited that he was there, and I was like, 'I'm going to jump off stage. … I have to!'" Shawn said. "I miscalculated how high the stage was from the ground."

It was a little awkward, but he recovered from it well, both in the moment and after it started spreading around the internet. When people started sharing the video, Shawn retweeted it and wrote, "LOL yep. Im ok but also that was insane hahahahaha."

What a good sport! It's just another reason to love him.
