There’s nothing holding Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello back from talking about each other and their romance anymore…truly. Over the past couple days, Cabello spoke to press, and Mendes spoke to fans about their feelings for each other and how their relationship is shaping them.
And in her third interview, the singer revealed on ITV’s Lorraine this week that yes, she’s writing songs about Mendes now. Genuinely, she is so thrilled to be with him. “I’ve known him for such a long time and I don’t know, he just feels like home to me,” she said, via Entertainment Tonight. “Yeah, I’m really happy.”
Are there songs about Mendes on her upcoming album Romance? Cabello wasn’t coy about it; there absolutely are: “Towards the end there were, yeah, yeah,” she said.
Expect mostly candid confessions on the tracks about Mendes along with her ex-boyfriend Matthew Hussey. (Their relationship ended this summer, shortly before she and Mendes started dating.) Cabello said she held back a little though: “It’s hard because I know people will know things are about them. Sometimes I won’t put that line in because it will hurt the other person’s emotions.”
She added that this is really the first time in her 22-year life that she has been in love. “I literally did not have time to fall in love before the age of 20, because I was just working all the time,” she said. “Everything from my first album was drawn from my imagination. I was single for, like, 20 years.”
Mendes, meanwhile, has spoken more conservatively about Cabello during fan Q&As. He spoke about their typical date on October 5: “Camila and I will basically wake up and find the nearest coffee we can find,” Mendes said. “She’ll have, basically, half a coffee and I’ll have, like, three. We’re always in different countries and cities when we hang out with each other.”
