During his appearance, he was asked by the broadcast and internet radio platform about having to step back from TikTok every once in a while.
Mendes shared, “TikTok is great. I have extreme social media addiction, so I have to really balance myself out,” according to Just Jared.
He added: “I have to delete those apps every now and again.”
Mendes confirmed he was “on a TikTok break right now. But when I have it, it’s everything… I am a child of Vine. They’re different, TikTok is much more advanced.”
