The things you do when you’re promoting new songs (and soon – a new album) are sometimes… weird.

Hottie singer Shawn Mendes knows that all too well – he once had to sing a lullaby to a hedgehog, he once had to eat his most hated food (tomatoes), and the list goes on. But this week, while in Sweden, Shawn had to let a man sniff his armpits. In front of the camera, that is.

Shawn Mendes, the popular Canadian superstar, is in Sweden these days, where he’s promoting his newest singles, “In My Blood” and “Lost in Japan.”

While there, Shawn’s been giving a lot of interviews – one of them to famous Swedish TV host Martin Björk. Martin had an interesting selection of “unique” questions for Shawn. Among them – “Who is your most ugly famous friend?” (“I’m not answering that.”)

And another one – “Which one of your body parts are you most proud of?” – Surprise! His ears.

There’s also the question of things Shawn would NOT like to hear in bed… But the weirdest part comes near the end of the clip – when Martin asks Shawn to smell his armpit. Shawn says yes… and Martin is quite pleased.

Actually, we’re not really surprised.
