Adam Rippon Met His Celeb Crush, Shawn Mendes, During the Oscars
Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon might’ve said he was “sleeping on” the beauty of Shawn Mendes for a while, but he definitely did NOT sleep on that thought for too long, because the two officially met during the 90th Annual Academy Awards!
Within the span of just a few weeks, Adam has officially tacked on an Olympic bronze medal AND a photo opp with his NEW celebrity crush, Shawn Mendes. Sorry, Harry Styles…
Although Adam has always talked about having a crush on Harry, he recently sat down with Ellen DeGeneres, where he revealed that Shawn Mendes has recently entered his radar.
“I used to have a really huge crush on Harry Styles… but here’s the thing, I was sleeping on Shawn Mendes,” he told the talk-show host after winning his bronze medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics. “I didn’t realize how cute he was. I know Harry will be upset but love is a funny thing.”
Adam attended the 90th Annual Academy Awards and the Vanity Fair party that followed on Sunday night and while we’re sure this experience would’ve been life-changing nonetheless, the fact that he actually got to meet and take a selfie with Shawn was most definitely the cherry on top.
The 28-year-old athlete posted a photo of himself with the 19-year-old musician to his Instagram story, captioning the photo with a simple ‘bruh’ to describe his emotions (we felt that):

Adam was also interviewed at the Oscars before he met Shawn and was asked if the singer’s Canadian blood is a problem considering the U.S. and Canada have quite the ongoing sports rivalry:
