Shawn Mendes Addresses Gay Rumors & Suggestion That Relationship With Camila Cabello Is A PR Stunt

Published: Wednesday 9th Dec 2020 by Sam

Shawn Mendes is hard at work promoting new album ‘Wonder.’

And though the LP is on-course to premiere at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, the 22-year-old has his eyes set on global domination.

To assist the realisation of that goal, Mendes sat down with UK publication The Guardian. 

During the candid chat (which was anything but the usual Q&A), the star addressed some of the murmurs directed his way.

Full story below…

Speaking about the rumors surrounding his sexuality and authenticity of his relationship with girlfriend Camila Cabello, Mendes said:

“There was a desperation for me to come out as being gay, which is such a ridiculous thing. I got upset because I know people who are gay who haven’t come out and I know the suffering they experience because of that. It’s just completely ignorant and insensitive of people to be on that sh*t.”

On the pressures of appeasing everyone musically, he added:

“That’s the problem. That’s where you go into a complete meltdown, when you try to make something that’s impossible to make: something that the whole world likes. It is a psychological head-f*ck. It completely is, and that’s after three therapists and 55 self-help books plus meditation and exercise and life experience and all of the things I’ve been working through for the last year and a half.”


With that, what are…

    Honest question what makes him seem gay to others cause I don’t see it ? Yet nevertheless let him live smh all the s*** that’s happening and as he stated I too have friends that aren’t ready because of their families, culture or religion it’s messed up but that’s how life is sadly for others. Some can embrace it while others simply need time. Yet again too, it’s truly nobody’s business – family included.

      Damn, what a matured response

      Pls we need more people like u on this blog to share ur opinions on various issues

      • UHoesFunny December 9, 2020

        Bro that’s you that come on here with all the hate. We keep the same energy you give. Keep your mouth shut, and maybe ppl won’t have a lot to say about your racist kinfolk.

      • Adam December 9, 2020

        Can I atleast ask why so many people care so much about his sexuality. Am not a fan but am not here using those ridiculous claims to show how much I hate him. Does it even matter. He is here because of his music not his sexuality.

      • Fancy BISH December 9, 2020

        And yet you’re the biggest child on this site! 😂 Give me a BREAK Clarkson 🙄

    • Truth December 9, 2020

      All that said- he is evidentially GAY

      And it’s cool. Leave him alone.

    • Paulo December 9, 2020

      You know how it is – people rightfully bash toxic masculinity but if a man does not display toxic macho traits publicly then he’s “not really a man”. And a lot of times it’s gay men who endorse this type of b******* 🙄

      Still think his relationship is fake tho but that has nothing to do with how he expresses his sexuality.

  2. Christopher Gomes December 9, 2020

    He’s in denial.. poor thing. #flaming

    • Real20 December 9, 2020

      He sexuality is none of your business unless your in his body and know his attractions you can’t confirm that. Leave people alone.

  3. Detruth December 9, 2020

    Don’t know anything about him but I hate when ppl try to force ppl to come out as if it benefits the person forcing them in anyway.

  4. tyty December 9, 2020

    That greasy mop on your head making you look like a girl doesn’t help. His relationship is PR if it wasn’t you wouldn’t be trying to use it to sell your flop album in such an obvious way. Racist loser.

    • Clarks0o0ñ December 9, 2020

      The way you’re foaming on ur mouth

      4th number one album coming
      We love to see it

      U will die of that bitterness in ur ugly heart

      • Adam December 9, 2020

        Dude, who cares about number ones. Tbh, u re such a clown. Missy Elliot has no number ones, but she’s at least recognized for her contribution to the female rap game. What do u think Shawn will be remembered for. Trying to be Harry Styles? Shawn lacks the charisma to reach the height of Harry Styles.

      • tyty December 9, 2020

        If I’m foaming at the mouth what does that mean about your Normani obsession, Beyoncé obsession and dua lipa obsession? That you spew in here 24/7. You stay self dragging. A number 1 with no hits and selling a measly 80k. Means no arena tour and less budget for next album.
        We love to see it.

      • Clarks0o0ñ December 9, 2020

        “next album.”

        Key words, NEXT ALBUM

        Atleast he would have a next album cause he is a musician.
        Normani will never have a 2nd album talk less of a 5th album. I dont even see the ugly manly rat making music in the next 3 years.

        Her first album will tank and she will “part ways ” with RCA records. 😂

        None of shawn Mendes albums had number 1 hits on them, only top 10s.
        And shawn is predicted to sell 96k first week , which will probably go up hopefully

        U keep pushing lies to further a false narrative. That’s what losers do. Ur a normani stan so I dont blame u. Pushing false narrative is ur thing.

        Normani will not see these pure sales numbers. Deep down in ugly heart u know it and that’s why u mad MAD

        U can shout Camila cabello is a racist all u like, normani will NEVER still happen, cause she’s just not a star neither is she a musician. Cry 😘😘

        The year is over and this bìtch still has 1 solo song that spent 1 week in the top 40 after all the hype and celebrity endorsements. Smh

  5. UHoesFunny December 9, 2020

    Who cares, gay or not, album and girlfriend still trash 🤷🏾‍♂️

    • HELLOKITTY December 9, 2020

      @Uhoes… – hahaha that was pretty funny and sadly, about the album, kinda true. I don’t know what it is exactly about his album but it didn’t flow well and there are very few songs that are exactly album worthy.

      • UHoesFunny December 9, 2020

        It’s gonna drop HARD after this week 😢

  6. Susan December 9, 2020

    Shawn, none of us believe a thing you say. Your entire career is payola and smoke and mirrors.

  7. Nicky December 9, 2020

    Camicky Christmas Song takes another tumble

    #82 US itunes

    Just released a couple days ago 😂. She has taken so many Ls

    FlopPopStar. We truly love to see it 🤣😂

  8. IJS December 9, 2020

    Rumors come with the territory; some are easier to deal with than others. But he’s young and wants to be liked by everyone so I get why he’s frustrated. I think he should just focus on his musical talent and everything else will fall into place. Being a little ambiguous about his sexuality can be advantageous for his career like it’s been for countless others. Even Harry Styles is out here trying to spark rumors and ambiguity because he knows that it can potentially propell him into mega super stardom. Play this to your advantage Shawn cause the rumors ain’t going anywhere.

    • UHoesFunny December 9, 2020

      The problem is we’re living in different times. The social media age. Everything you do is being watched. And sadly nowadays, regardless of the truth. The internet will always choose the lie. Being a celeb is no longer what it once was, and not nearly as fun.

    Go against the well loved Normani, it’s gonna cost ya.


    • ShesABottom December 9, 2020

      Other gays can sense a queen and we have Gaydar, it doesn’t make a difference. But when you a throwing a gimmicky relationship, when you can’t even kiss properly, look feminine, speak softly, girl. As Phaedra once said, “if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, its a duck” Mary. Be yourself boo.

      • Ana December 10, 2020


  10. Susan December 9, 2020

    He looks like a young Caitlyn Jenner in the main pic y’all posted 🥴😂 the earring and the hair aren’t helping his case.

  11. Haterz Gon’ Hate December 9, 2020

    It isn’t even about him being gay tho. It’s the fact that “industry relationships” thrown together by label “handlers” have been going on since forever – and him and Camicky are as forced an inauthentic as they come. Even Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley was more convincing. 🤷🏾‍♂️ But no matter, he is young, there is time for him to publicly eat Camicky’s face again when her next album flops and she needs to entertain her Instagram followers the only way she knows how, because that album is not going to entertain its way to no.1 on BB. 🤭🤭🤭🤭

    • Ana December 10, 2020

      I think the same

  12. Swifter2020 December 9, 2020

    Why are people so obsessed with these men sexualities. Let them be, s***. It’s always the homos and their f** squad wishing all the men are gay, so f****** disgusting. Let him live, whatever path he decides. There’s no need to box people in. Not everyone wants to be gay you know. God bless.

  13. J December 9, 2020

    It took Ricky Martin centuries to come out, so he probably will try to make as much money before he does too lol good pivot sis

  14. Clarks0o0ñ December 9, 2020

    Thatgrapejuice knew what they were doing with the picture they used for this post 😂😂

  16. #TheTruth December 9, 2020

    Some of you need help, to spit your venin like this online, you must be very frustrated in life.

    Who cares about people’s sexuality, why the F does it matter to you ?
    So now we live in a world where straight people should fit a certain standard and if they don’t fit your stupid expectations they are automatically gay ?

    See as far as I know, the LGBT community is asking for tolerance. But by calling out other people gay and all sorts of non sense, you are doing exactly the opposite of how you wish people would treat you, which is respect.

    And if you’re straight and also call out people gay because of whatever criterias you’ve decided… have a sit.

    Happy holidays everyone.

    I’m bout to snitch. Shawn came to the restaurant I was a busboy at on July 18th, 2018 (Pink Taco on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, but not the gay part of West Hollywood). He refused to make eye contact with anyone at the restaurant the entire night, except his male companion (whom he spent the night gazing at). I got the vibe the male companion was straight, starstruck, and just happy to be there with his boss (he looked like he’s probably in Shawn’s band). Anyways, after trying to make eye contact with Shawn *Lionel Richie voice* all night longggggg, I will never ever forget until my dying breath, I looked directly in front of me at the mirror behind our barbooth as I walked past him to find he turned his head all the way to his left to stare at my voluptuous light-skinned ass as I walked past the bar (like a runway, sweetie), and into the kitchen. My initial reaction was “Oh s***! He’s gonna catch me looking at him in the mirror and tell my bosses to fire me!” but he was so focused on my ass that he didn’t realize I was looking directly at his reflection. *Isley Brothers voice* “Cause you BUSTED!” Things seem genuine with Camila so I think he’s probably bi like Usher, Justin Timberlake, and Justin Bieber but feels no reason to come out of the closet as bi unless he ever finds himself in a serious relationship with a man.

    • Max Goldbug December 9, 2020

      Also, Shawn is a big girl lol. She’s 6’2″ with wide hips in real life FYI. I see why Camila’s looking past things cause he’s a big dude.

    • PinotNoir December 10, 2020

      His moon is in Aquarius. So he likes ethnic looks (think Jerry O’Connell kissing Wendy’s 13 foot) and his guitar likely swings both ways on dem hips.

  18. PinotNoir December 10, 2020

    From that pic, SHE thrusts. He just lies there and lets his pelvic bone take a beef curtain beating. #SlabOnBone

    • PinotNoir December 10, 2020

      Oh, who am I kidding? 🙃
