There’s Nothing Holding Us Back From Looking at How Far Shawn Mendes Has Come!

He’s grown up so fast! Shawn Mendes first appeared on the scene in 2014, and since then, he has become a huge pop star. If you have ever seen him in concert, you know that girls are constantly going crazy over the Canada native. Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we?

Though it didn’t seem possible that Shawn could get any more famous, he did just that when he and girlfriend Camila Cabello started dating in 2019. They sparked romance rumors several times that summer while being spotted locking lips and holding hands in different cities around the country, including New York City, Los Angeles and Miami.

In September 2019, the former Fifth Harmony star opened up about her romance with Shawn. “Honestly, this past year and a half was the first time I really experienced falling in love with another person. I think there is so much more depth to love when you know you are in it with another person. You have so much more to say — I think that’s what makes me emotional,” she gushed to Elle. “I’ve loved people from afar, but falling in love with someone and having feelings for someone, but they don’t know … It’s different.”

It’s clear the pair have learned a lot from one another. Shawn previously revealed that his girlfriend has taught him a lot about body positivity. “[Camila is] so strong, so clear and confident with her [body] and so articulate and empathetic about other people’s,” he revealed to British GQ in a November 2020 interview. “It really changed my view of mine. It really changed my life. … You are not your body. You are not your voice. You are not your songs. You are you and people love you because of you.”

The pair have been going strong lately and have been spotted out and about on several dates together over the last few months. “Despite their busy careers, they’ve spent much of the past year together. They were in love and were best friends — they still are,” an insider previously told In Touch. “The past year was a whirlwind for them, and they supported each other so much.”
