Shawn Mendes Opens Up About Camila Cabello Relationship, Says He 'Really, Truly' Loves Her

Shawn Mendes is getting a bit candid about his relationship with Camila Cabello.

While some have speculated that they broke, when he announced his new music, Camila has been very supportive.

In a new interview, Shawn opened up about reflecting on himself the past six months, showing emotions and what was hurting their relationship.

“I think one thing that really kind of happen to me over the last six months is this real moment of reflecting and kind of looking at my own life, but also like being able to look at the world and not be so caught up in my career, my job, and my life, but able to kind of look around see things a lot clearer for the first time,” Shawn told “Learning that when it comes to matters of the heart you don’t really have to be a professor of it. You just have to know morally inside what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is bad…”

“I feel like ‘Wonder’ is in a lot of ways me just reflecting on my life, and life in general,” he continued. “I’ve never really done that before… probably because I didn’t have the mental capacity and clarity to even be able to reflect, and also probably because I was really scared of what people would think if I started to reflect in my music.”

Shawn then talked about how his emotions were affecting his relationship with Camila.

“I thought that I was a pretty open, emotional, guy until I started being in a relationship with someone that I really, truly love and, realizing that ‘oh no, I really have this big ego, and I don’t want to show her that I’m hurting and I don’t want to show her that that offended me, and like I want to be the man, and I want to be strong in this relationship.’ It actually was hurting our relationship,” Shawn said.

“To get to a point where I’m like, oh, the real strength does lie inside of being emotional, and being vulnerable was really hard for me,” he added. “I wrote songs like ‘In My Blood,’ and I thought I was vulnerable and emotional until I realized that I wasn’t, and I still probably am not comparatively to what we can be. It’s been a lot.”
