Shawn Mendes needs to stop teasing us.
It was bad enough when the GRAMMY-nominated singer posted a 90-second teaser video for his latest single “Wonder,” giving fans an ornate panoramic tour of his shambled urban apartment (I wonder what his piano smells like?) Now, Shawn says he can neither confirm, nor deny a potential collaboration with mustachioed heart throb Justin Bieber!
"If I turned one down, that would be insane, considering he’s been one of my favorite artists since I was like nine years old,” Mendes told UK radio station Capital FM over video chat. "I cannot confirm or deny." Fans – prepare yourselves for a potential Men-ber single. Or Bieb-es, depending on how you look at it.
Apparently Shawn and Justin have gotten much closer during the coronavirus pandemic. Mendes tells the show hosts it’s “really cool to have him as a mentor in a lot of ways, just to kind of talk through stuff with, because there's not many people who do this type of stuff."
Alright, Mendes stans. Check your pulse. Are your vitals good? Because we have another Shawn bomb to drop on you, this time from the podcast Smallzy’s Celebrity Small Talk. He revealed to the publication what he and girlfriend Camila Cabello have been binging on during quarantine. "We watched all the Harry Potters probably three times, 'Stranger Things' three times,” Mendes says.
"I mean to be completely honest, it was my first time spending time with my girlfriend and her family in their house in Miami. I was there for like three months so I got really like, I was doing laundry, well I was barely doing laundry. I was trying to do laundry. I was learning how to cook. It was nice man, it was really nice."
Shawn’s latest album Wonder is due out on December 4.
