Is there a unpronounced weirdness between Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes, or do they really like each other? Well, recently when they and a hurdle of other well respected artists showed up to honor a Universal Music CEO at the “Hollywood Walk of Fame”, people began to put into question how they interacted with each other. Or maybe the lack of interaction. Awkwardly, Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber’s now wife Hailey Bieber had a very public fling that eventually did bubble out due to Bieber and her reconciliation. Was Mendes just a rebound? Or was Hailey just his “beard”. Many people have theories over Mendes and his sexuality. The outright seemingly fake relationship between him and ex Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello doesn’t come off as strikingly genuine.
So, does Justin have a problem with fellow Canadian superstar Shawn? By his acts of continuous praise through social media, it would appear to be a no. But, the fact that Hailey did delete most of her pictures with Shawn once she and Justin reunited is a bit telling. Is it a prerequisite that you must absolve yourself completely of everything to do with your past love just because you’re married. Are pictures from years ago really that painful? For some, it would make sense for Hailey to take those types of actions out of respect for Justin, but the question that should be asked concerning her doing that is why? Someone who is secure with their relationship and their partner would not be offended over some old photos from 2017. But, someone who is immensely insecure and a tad narcissistic might.
When you breakdown the relationship between these two it is clear who has the upper hand. Bieber seemingly looks like a man who has to be nurtured and saved. With Hailey it is as if she possesses a mother like poise to her that makes Justin feel safe and secure. In some ways that can be regarded as beautiful. Ultimately it can be detrimental. Not to mention the narrative that’s been thrown out there of Bieber being a wounded bird as a result of his toxic relationship with Selena Gomez. Could the boogeyman of Gomez still be haunting their relationship? To paint her as the one to blame in all of this looks to be a wrong way of beginning a healthy life with his wife Hailey. If Selena is always superimposed in everything he does, can Baldwin really compete with that?
