Our most recent and intriguing couple this year has been of Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello. The two have been sparking romance rumors for a while now and their recent PDA filled brunch spoke no different and collaboration music video spoke no different.
Breaking down the details of what the Paparazzi saw, the two came out of their brunch in West Hollywood, California, and were seen outside holding hands and embracing one another in sweet Sunday comfort hugs. The two were dressed in casual athleisure wear. Camilla had some booty flattering sweat pants on with black sneakers, a low cut tank top, and a navy blue pull over cardigan. Shawn Mendes was seen in navy blue Nike shorts and socks, complemented by a dark hoodie and white sneakers. It looked almost as though the two had coordinated their outfits because they were both sporting the exact same color scheme of dark blue, black, and white sportswear.
This all comes after Camila Cabello was seen at Shawn Mendes’ Friday concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Following her attendance, she also took to Instagram to post:
@Shawnmendes you couldn’t be more amazing. Wow. [red heart emoji]”
You’re unreal. @shawnmendes.”
Two outings in a single weekend says quite a lot about how much time the two are spending together. They also spent a lot of time together in shooting their steamy music video for the song Senorita by Shawn Mendes. That song is actually what initially sparked all of their romance rumors. The two seemed to have quite a lot of chemistry on screen and we can now see that they have a lot more in person as well.
That all said, we need to give them some space and not jump to any conclusions because the two do go way back. They’ve worked on music together before and have also gone on tour back in 2014 (back when Camila Cabello was still a part of Fifth Harmony. Oh yeah. That’s some good old sweet nostalgia.)
Now, Camila Cabello is speaking up about her and Shawn Mendes’ right to privacy away from the snooping public eye that’s sticking its nose into their budding romance. The star was featured in Elle’s Women in Music issue with her own featured hot cover photo. In her cover story, Camila spoke up about her feeling the need to protect her relationship with Shawn Mendes, saying:
Love is the most sacred, precious thing to me. I want to always feel like my love is between me and that person, and never belonging to anyone else. As much as I love my fans, and as much as I love people, I like to live my life as normally as possible. In a relationship, it makes me feel uncomfortable to invite everyone in on that.”
She further added, commenting on relationship speculation that:
I don’t know; people can say whatever they want to say. They can speculate, but at the same time, we are going to live our own lives, enjoy it, and fall for each other like nobody is watching. That is how I want to live .I never want to open the door for people to feel like they are involved. Like I said, I want it to be mine and [his]. That’s why I’m so tight-lipped about it: because I want to protect it. I mean, I love him. We have always connected; we have the best time together. Shawn texted me the idea for the chorus for ‘Señorita.’ He was like, ‘Hey, what if we work on this and do it together?'”
