Shears takes the opportunity to speak out about mental health, saying:

As out-and-proud and independently-minded as I like to think I am, I have felt pressure to conform in all kinds of ways. I’ve had major body image issues for the last 10 years. Like, what the fuck? Why do I struggle with that? I think about it all the time, and I feel like I’m in a better place with it now, but it’s definitely something I’ve struggled with. I’m super excited to go into my 40s, but I do feel like I have to reassess what it all means and I’ve been thinking a lot about that.


Shears also contradicts his carefree image bravely, by acknowledging his struggle with depression:

When it comes to mental health issues, I’m always going to struggle with depression, it’s something I know I’m going to have for the rest of my life. But I have really learned how to manage it. I can look inside now and say, “What is not making me happy? What is giving me anxiety?” And then face it and change it. That’s how this whole record was made. I wanted to get back to this place where I’m putting out music I love and getting to perform on stage. Getting to be creative makes me really happy.

More in the issue, out at the end of August.
