Shawn Mendes is from Toronto and is becoming one of the bigger pop stars in the world.

The 19-year old had met Drake a couple of times and decided to approach him when they were both in the VIP section of a recent Weeknd show in their shared city.

As Mendes explained last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, things went poorly after that.

“So I go over and I see [Drake]. He’s a huge guy, right? So you don’t just go over to him. I guess not. So I go over to touch his side, and his like 6’6″, 300 pound security guard… next thing I know I’m in the middle of The Weeknd show with my arm hooked behind my back. Drake’s security guard just has me completely at his mercy. And I’m like, ‘Oh no!’ I see Drake look over, and in my eyes it was like, ‘Help please, Drake.’ In that moment, if he didn’t remember who I was, I probably would have… I don’t know what I would have done. I would’ve been in jail, yeah.”
Mendes says he doesn't blame the security guard for not recognizing him. "Don't expect everyone to know who you are," he told Fallon's audience.
