As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words – but some further explanation in a Snapchat caption never hurt anybody. (That is how it goes, right?) Singer Shawn Mendes posted a selfie to his own Snap story, and though he looks cute as usual in the photo, we couldn't help but notice that there was something unusual hanging off of his nose.
He explained that what we see here isn't a trendy nose ring or septum piercing like you may first think, but rather a remnant of stitches from the "small sinus operation" that he has just had.
It looks like Shawn had surgery for a deviated septum and is doing well and resting up.
Multiple fan accounts are reporting that Shawn is laying low and turning down fan requests for selfies right now – which is totally understandable as he's recuperating.
Shawn had a surgery on his nose and couldnt take pics with fans today. I hope he gets some rest and feels better soon!— Shawn Mendes Updates (@shawnmendestuff) February 12, 2017
