Camila Cabello Explains Why Shawn Mendes Romance Started Off 'Weird'

Camila Cabello is all too familiar with the ups and downs of falling in love. Thankfully, she's currently experiencing some pretty fantastic "ups" after making things official with Shawn Mendes.

The pair has been anything but private in the midst of their relationship and we as mere spectators only catch a glimpse of their whirlwind romance. As many know, the 22-year-old “Shameless” singer and 21-year-old “If I Can't Have You Singer” first linked up for their 2015 smash hit, “I Know What You Did Last Summer” before reuniting for this year's “Señorita.”

While Mendes revealed when they officially started dating, Cabello opened up about the first time they started having romantic feelings for one another. As it turns out, it was in those first 2015 meetings to write “I Know What You Did Last Summer” that the pair started to feel a ping of something more than friendship for each other.

“I really bonded with him as more than a friend. I think he did, too, but we were both really young, and he was experiencing the pressures of his career. I don’t think we knew what to do with those feelings,” she told Rolling Stone. “It was this awkward thing where we both liked each other, but we weren’t together. It was just weird. An energy was there from the beginning, but after that song, we didn’t spend as much time together.”

Cabello went on to date Matthew Hussey for over a year before calling it quits and taking a shot at love with Mendes in 2019 and it's been a fairy tale ever since (talk about worth the wait)! And we can definitely expect to hear all about their relationship on her new album.
