Shawn Mendes is something of an internet sensation. Sharing a similar rise to fame that Justin Bieber experienced on social media, the 22-year-old “Stitches” singer has established himself as an internationally recognized music artist with a prestigious career.
One only has to view his recent social media activity to see just how popular he has become. Mendes just scored an incredible collaboration with Justin, in fact! The irony of the event couldn’t be greater. Not even that long ago (several years ago) Justin shared that he didn’t even know who Shawn even was!
The recent headlines have been highlighting how Shawn and his girlfriend Camila Cabello have been spending quality time together while self-isolating together. Camila, who is also a famous pop diva, shares a reputation for the extravagant, yet this time she is seen with Shawn wearing attractively casual clothing while having fun going through some mobile apps.
The most hilarious app they go through is called ‘Guess The Gibberish’, which presents a random phrase that doesn’t make sense at face value, but has a pronunciation that reveals the real phrase.
The post was made as an Instagram Story and wasn’t officially listed on his feed, but thankfully there is a snapshot taken where you can see one of the vids. Camila is seen with a black and white filter while lounging beside Shawn while enjoying the previously mentioned phone apps.
And although the post wasn’t reposted officially, Shawn and Camila did wish their followers a Merry Christmas online after announcing that they had made Christmas music together.
‘Merry christmas to you and yours ?#TheChristmasSong video out now. Shot by us, directed by Tarzan.” (Shawn & Camila)
Here are some of the comments that Shawn received on their post:
““Directed by Tarzan” I can’t ????❤️❤️❤️❤️” (Commentator)
“STOP MY HEART CANNOT TAKE ALL THIS CONTENT ??” (Commentator)
“but look at that perfection ❤️” (Commentator) “you guys are my everything!! merry christmas ❤️❤️❤️” (Commentator)

“I love the entire álbum, is the best of the world?” (Commentator)
“Can Tarzan Direct my next music video ? …OUR next music video??? ??? jk love this btw!” (Commentator)
Other news has been highlighting the controversy surrounding Shawn’s public image. Fans shared on social media that they felt his relationship with Camila was fake since he seemed so feminine. (Implying that he must be gay)
He was not pleased with these false rumors and shared during interviews that he was not gay. In fact, he scolded people who speculated about his sexuality so unemotionally. He told The Guardian that he felt that fans were lucky to even state such things since those who actually are gay are afraid to come forward about it.
