(Radio.com) When it comes to fans, artists know how much they owe their listeners for helping them succeed, which is why Shawn Mendes wasn't too happy when he learned how a recent interview left his fans seeing red.

Mendes appears on this week's cover of Billboard, and on Thursday (August 25) he took to Twitter to clarify a statement he made in the interview which, according to him, ended up looking much different in print. Billboard teased its cover story by claiming Mendes said his fans don't really know him. One user questioned that assertion, retweeting Billboard's original link with a "b-- what?" added on for good measure.

When Mendes saw that response, he began tweeting how parts of his interview had gotten twisted. Mendes explained, "I have no idea why they would say that. I did not say that!!!" He said he'd initially told Billboard something different. "I explained how im growing up and so are you guys and how it takes time for you all to fully understand me and me to understand you," he wrote.

He clarified, "Its really unfortunate when what you say gets turned into the bad version of it. Im sorry guys." Read the full explanation here.
