Shawn Mendes: “I Am Not Gay”

Published: Tuesday 15th Dec 2020 by Sam

Shawn Mendes is hot on the promotional trail for new album ‘Wonder.’

And while the singer has typically skewed politically correct in prior interviews, he didn’t in a new chat with Armchair Expert.

Specifically when it came to the ever-active speculation about his sexuality.

See what we mean below…

Speaking on the discourse surrounding his orientation, the 22-year-old said:

“It was so, so frustrating for me because there were some people in my life that I was very, very close to, who were gay and in the closet. And I felt this real anger for those people. It’s such a tricky thing. You want to say, ‘I’m not gay, but it’d be fine if I was gay — but also there’s nothing wrong with being gay, but I’m not.'”

He went on add:

“Everyone’s been calling me gay since I was 15 years old. I’m not gay, and I’m like, ‘What does that mean?’ I had these problems with the way my voice sounded. I’m like, ‘How do I sit?’ I’m always first to cross my legs and sit with a position of this feminine style and I really suffered with that sh*t.”

On his upcoming, he said:

“I didn’t grow up wrestling. I grew up getting my hair braided on New Year’s Eve. It just completely depends on the way you grew up in your life and your surroundings.

I think a lot of guys go through that, and even worse than that, there are just so many guys who are gay and in the closet and must be hearing sh*t like that and just being like, “I’m terrified to come out.”

Mendes concluded by saying that toxic masculinity has made men “a**holes”:

“I’m in a relationship where my girlfriend is like, “We’re going to get in bed and you’re going to put your head on my chest and you’re going to cry into my chest. You’re going to tell me how you feel because if you don’t do that, you’re just going to be an a**hole for the next week and I’m not going to deal with that sh*t.” I’m just lucky to be in a relationship that’s for it.”

Well, that’s that.

With that, what are…

    That’s right girl! Deny deny deny until you think it’s true! Cant wait for you to sissy that walk! Seriously It’s so sad that someone needs to fake their orientation just for a career because you know the second he comes out his career is done… Don’t care how good the music is

    • AJ December 15, 2020

      On what basis?

  4. Xavier December 15, 2020

    Lol, why do people care about his sexuality so much. If her say he’s not GAY then he’s not. Why are people making a deal about it.

    Stereotypically, any male who is feminine is gay, but it doesn’t have to be that way though. You guys make it more and more difficult for closeted gay men to come out.
    If he’s in fact gay, that is his problem. He will decide when to come out and when no to.

  5. All.Tea.All.Shade.B.All.Offense December 15, 2020

    He’s not gay! He’s Bi.. 🥴 Notice he didn’t say he was straight either? Oldest trick in the Bi book.. shouldn’t matter either way tho..

  6. Nicky December 15, 2020

    Lmaoooo!!! He said he’s not gay, doesn’t mean he’s not bi 😂😂😂

    Camicky Christmas Song is a certified flop. Won’t even be certified DUST

    What a wonderful way to end the year with another L

    What a FlopPopStar

  7. Hmmm December 15, 2020

    No PR training. Keep your mouth closed on these personal matters. You are a fantasy for some gay men and they’d likely continue to support you if there’s an iota of a possibility that you could be gay. But your continued denials serve only to alienate that fanbase. Case in point….Harry Styles.

    • PinotNoir December 15, 2020

      Who’d lust after a scrawny Canadian with locker-room-smelling foreskin and not an ounce of scruff?

  8. Paulo December 15, 2020

    He went from flying above the rumors to having to address them for shock value and clicks. The Crowmila Effect 😫😂

    • Nicky December 15, 2020


      He should try to at least get a woman who has a real woman’s body with a pretty face

      • #WAP December 15, 2020

        I’m dead. LOL

      • Keyword December 15, 2020

        Yes Nicky, we all know flopmillas shaped like a ruler..FLAT

  9. UGH… December 15, 2020

    This queen again? His mouth is the only place I’ve heard these rumors from. Why does he keep bringing it up?

  10. musixxman96 December 15, 2020

    The pic used for this post again 😂😂😂

  11. Liam December 15, 2020

    Why do ppl want him to be gay if he isn’t! If he says he’s not gay he isn’t. not seeing the issue here 🤷🏾‍♂️

    • #WAP December 15, 2020

      Do you see the pic on this post? he outed himself with his mannerisms

  12. FMcL December 15, 2020

    Did you not post a variant of this story already?!

  13. PinotNoir December 15, 2020

    Cry on his girl’s chest all night? Told y’all he lies there as she thrusts! ☕

    • #WAP December 15, 2020

      LMAOOOOOOOOO and he’s probably calling Camilla “Big Daddy Cabello”

      • PinotNoir December 15, 2020

        She DOES have more mustache than he does. She really has learned enough controlling tactics from her “dating coach” ex.

  14. #WAP December 15, 2020

    Sorry hun, its the tiny rhinestone earring and the hair pulled behind the ear. Looking like a young Caitlynn Jenner. We know you’re a queen. I bet Camicky Mouse/Canola Oil uses a strap-on for him.

  15. #WAP December 15, 2020

    Wait. He cries into Camila’s chest? HONEY, you’re outing YOURSELF at this point: ““We’re going to get in bed and you’re going to put your head on my chest and you’re going to cry into my chest.” LOL

    • PinotNoir December 15, 2020

      Don’t you love mainstream “artists” who get their thoughts from social media memes? I’ll let you guess where he learned about “toxic” masculinity.

  16. Haterz Gon’ Hate December 15, 2020

    Oh Laawwwwwwd his handlers are playing close to the edge with this narrative – and all to give him PRESS to sell the new album 💿🤦🏾‍♂️ The fact that he needs to keep saying he’s not gay is offensive – he speaks about closet gays – but at the same day he’s making it harder for them to come out with his denials like being Gay is wrong and something to be repeatedly denied.

    He should have saved those 9 year old girl dropped her ice cream in the playground tears 😭 for lyrics of substance and let the music do the talking 🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️

  17. UHoesFunny December 15, 2020

    He cares way too much what people think, and his PR team petty for letting him say all this lmaooo. Bad move, bad album, bad girlfriend. Oof 😓

  18. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) December 15, 2020

    No no no baby no no no baby don’t lie💅🏿💅🏿 Shawna loves sucking wild c o c k s just like me

  19. Deal with it December 15, 2020

    Gay people get on my nerves. You can’t force someone to be gay. You thinking someone is gay doesn’t mean that they are in fact gay. You fantasizing about a person doesn’t make them gay either. Too many of you scream and cry you want rights for everyone and inclusion. Yet will sit here and violate people and demand them to be something they are not. Half you screaming this man is gay wouldn’t have a chance with him even if he came out tonight! So what’s the point?

    • Haterz Gon’ Hate December 15, 2020

      ERROR: Why do you assume: A: That it is only gay people that say he is gay? Is the whole media who have covered this story at points gay? What about the women who think he is gay? B: You assume ALL gay men who think another man is gay automatically want to sleep with him?? I’m gay, he is not my type, I don’t want to sleep with him. I DO think he is young and confused and will come out when he is ready. Not everyone feels the world will still value them if they are gay = closet.

      • Deal With It December 16, 2020

        Nope, there is no way to spin this. What female cares if this man is gay? Stop the bs! We know the main people calling him gay are gay males attracted to him!
        Social media really has warped the mind of humans! Conspiracy and opinion is now taken as facts. Facts are called lies!

  20. PinotNoir December 15, 2020


    You’re NOT gay.

    You just seduce gay label execs.

  21. Adele December 15, 2020

    Ricky Martin said the same thing during the peak of his career and….

  22. Puh-leeeeze December 16, 2020

    Why is this news? Who is this person? Who the **** cares? (I have so many questions)

  23. Delonjo D Barber December 17, 2020

    Hol’ up! He cries on his gf’s chest? Is he a lesbian?
