Shawn is breaking his mother's heart. Why?

Manuel's son Shawn was captured giving an interview at Elvis Duran Show. The young talent shared that his mom is upset with him as Shawn is ready to move out of his mom's house. 

Shawn feels that he is not attending high school every day and has been working more. Shawn, in that situation, felt that he is kind of ready to move out and do his own thing now. 

Listening to that, Shawn's mother is unhappy. He even told his mom despite moving out, he will face time a lot with her. 

The artist even shared that he told his mom at the time of making dinner, he would make sure to face time her and make dinner with her. 

Shawn says that he is away most of the time rather than being at home, and he claims that he has already left the nest. Lastly, Shawn confronted that Love is Selfish. 

Elaborating it, he said that even if you are not a selfish person at all, there is a thing called love that will overpower your personality completely and eventually makes you selfish. 

Has a matching tattoo with mom?

As mentioned earlier, Shawn shares a strong connection with his mom as they both have the same tattoos of an elephant on their fingers. 

No doubt, they give family goals who are devoted to their family indeed. Other than that, Shawn can't eat tomatoes. For him, Tomatoes is a great "NO" as it doesn't work out for him. 

Also, the artist is highly inspired by Ed Sheeran. He confronted that he listens to Ed Sheeran not only for pleasure but also admires his talent, pointings out that Ed always provides a perfect delivery for each and every tune. 

Moreover, Shawn flew him to LA to have a special bonding dinner experience. Nevertheless, Shawn was then linked to Hailey Bieber romantically.
