There’s a Reason Why Shawn Mendes is Single, and It’s Actually Super Sweet

By  | 

Shawn Mendes has been romantically linked to tons of celebrities, including Camila Cabello and Hailey Baldwin, throughout his career, but the “Lost in Japan” singer insists he’s single at the moment. You’d probably think the 20-year-old pop superstar has lots of love prospects, ya know, since millions of people basically throw themselves at him on the daily, but, as it turns out, that’s not the case at all.

Shawn sat down with Variety recently to discuss his transformation from a Vine star to a pop-music sensation and also spilled the tea about his love life and why he’s not in a relationship right now.

“I’m not currently dating anyone, but it’s not because I don’t have time — I don’t know if I’d be dating anyone if I was home in Pickering, either,” he explains. “It hasn’t stumbled across me, and I’m not chasing it. Of course, seeing all those other artists and people in relationships, you think, ‘Maybe it would be nice; who would be great for me?’ And that’s when you realize: ‘This is wrong. Let it be. I’m not supposed to be with anyone right now.'”

RE-FREAKIN’-TWEET, Shawn. You shouldn’t try to force romance, no matter the circumstances.

The Canadian crooner does find love beautiful, however, specifically calling Hailey and fiancé Justin Biebertwo amazing people.”

“If you know them both separately it does make a lot of sense — a little bit of yin and yang,” he adds.

Shawn previously admitted that he’s never had his heart broken, but “can’t wait for it to happen because [he’ll] probably get some good songs out of it.”

Welp, that’s one way to look at it!
