Shawn managed to keep up with his education despite his packed schedule thanks to online coursework. “I really miss that whole experience of being in the classroom,” the singer said in an interview with Just Jared Jr. “And then also, all the sports teams, all the music events, the talent shows, the camps — and actually, they’ve let me go to the leadership camps, and I’ll be able to go to prom. So it will be really awesome.”
Just before graduating, the singer got his very first tattoo — a Bob Ross-esque scene of a lake and trees in the shape of a guitar, with Toronto’s CN Tower at the end of the guitar’s neck. “No he did not cry,” his tattoo artist Livia Tsang of Chronic Ink tweeted.
