Shawn Mendes is quickly becoming a meme, a total catch, and an internet sensation. Although the 22-year-old singer and social influencer has pretty much been spoken for romantically (expected become engaged to fellow music artist Camila Cabello any day now) the “Wonder” artist continues to gain the hearts of the public by posting fantastic musical releases.
At one point, Justin Bieber didn’t even know Shawn’s name, yet the two released a song they collaborated on called “Monster”, released last year in 2020. If that doesn’t show recognition, what does?
The continuous engagement that Shawn has with his fans is simply phenomenal, and the controversy surrounding his private life has increased the engagement fans have with his music tenfold. If anything, the idea that he could be gay, or be in a romantic relationship with Cabello as a publicity stunt generated an immense media attention that he wouldn’t have otherwise had.
And as if on cue, in the moments when things quiet down and he isn’t blowing up social media under scrutiny of the press, he serves up some serious fan service by live-streaming himself performing some acoustic delights.
Just to preface his current activity on Instagram, it has been over three weeks since he last posted anything officially on his feed, so his live streams are exceptionally timed at a point when fans have eagerly waited to see him post something new.
His most recent interviews have indicated that he has been taken things slowly, especially in light of the lockdowns that prevented him from going on tour and making music more rapidly. The fact that he was even able to make new music last year is a testament to the dedication he has in his craft.
‘Daughter In Law’
During one of his last interviews on the Zach Sang Show, he shared how he is expecting to marry Camilla sooner than later, especially since his parents are already calling her their “daughter-in-law”.
“It’s like a real partner, a partner in crime, you have someone to bounce any ideas off of,” he shared. “The hardest ideas, which is the life ones, and yeah, we always talk about that stuff.”
“My dad is never very serious about things, but he would always bug me and be like, ‘How’s my daughter-in-law doing?’” Shawn added.
Camila has expressed her undying affection for her “tall sweet funny boy” (as she stated in one of her last posts showing the pair kissing in what looks like a hot tub.
The fans continue to share how much they love this beautiful couple. Here are some of the comments she received on the aforementioned post that literally raises the temperature with steamy moments:
“This is the Christmas kiss we all wished for. ????” (Commentator) “Queen of making out with Shawn Mendes.” (Commentator)
