Just because Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have collaborated on songs together in the past doesn’t mean the Canadian crooner serenades his girlfriend in private. The Wonder artist revealed the reason why he doesn’t sing for the former Fifth Harmony member during an interview on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Tuesday. “You definitely don‘t just sing to your girlfriend, especially when your girlfriend is also a singer,” Shawn said.
The Stitches performer, 22, has been house sitting for Camila in Los Angeles while she’s away in the UK filming Cinderella. “I just basically use the utilities and sleep in the bed. That’s really my version of house sitting,” he said. “I’m lucky, she’s coming back tomorrow. I haven’t seen her in like a month and a half so I’m super excited.”
Although Shawn won’t be singing for Camila, 23, when she returns home, the Treat You Better artist revealed that he and his girlfriend enjoy listening to Latin music when they are together. “She knows what they’re saying in the songs, I don’t know what they’re saying,” he shared. “I’m just feeling this beautiful Latin vibe and it just kind of puts me at ease.”
Shawn recently opened up to RADIO.COM about how his relationship with Camila helped him become more emotional. “I thought that I was a pretty open, emotional, guy until I started being in a relationship with someone that I really, truly love and, realizing that ‘Oh no, I really have this big ego, and I don’t want to show her that I’m hurting and I don’t want to show her that that offended me, and like I want to be the man, and I want to be strong in this relationship,” he said, noting that it was “hurting our relationship.” Shawn admitted that it was hard for him to understand that “real strength does lie inside of being emotional and being vulnerable.”
