Some things you just cannot explain, some mysteries that will never be solved. Why no one believes that Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are actually dating despite being photographed heavily petting in public is at the top of my personal dream Dateline episodes.
As they took the stage for a sexual yet PG13 performance of their #1 song Senorita (will never be the real Senorita to me), I couldn’t help but think that even if they had actual intercourse live on stage at the MTV VMA’s, I would still kinda think it was a publicity stunt. But why? Why does no one believe these two very attractive people that are in the same age group and friend circle could be actually dating?? There had to be a reason why.

I googled it all, clicked on every article on the first page of results of ‘why does no one believe Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are dating?’ Truth is, there is not one good reason. We all just collectively agreed that in our hearts it doesn’t make any sense. They can make out in the water, on stage or at the altar…we ain’t buying it.
One of the reasons listed is that they have known each other for 5 years and only just started dating. Shawn Mendes just turned 21. 5 years ago he was 16 years old. It’s very possible they would have waited until they could legally drink before straddling each other in a public pool. Their VMA performance could have been classified as child porn back then.
Part of me would not be surprised if they were legit together. Living life that beautiful and talented; it’s probably hard to come across as normal and genuine. I imagine you just kind of walk around and everyone tells you how amazing and hot you are and so there’s no need to develop a personality. It sounds fucking awesome tbh.
But really, what is the point of Shawn and Camila faking a relationship? Why would they go through the effort to hire paparazzi to follow them around and take pics? Maybe it’s because they make pretty good music together so some savvy PR company pitched the idea of them really selling it and making #1 songs. Maybe it is to stage a future explosive breakup that leads to wildly successful Grammy winning breakup albums. It’s what Beyonce and Jay Z tried to do but no one bought that either.
I think really at the heart of it people deep down kind of think Shawn Mendes is gay. If he was, I don’t think one person on the planet would have a problem with it. He’s an absolute man rocket. There can’t possibly be one person on earth not attracted to Shawn Mendes. We’d still click on the grainy videos of Shawn and a guy make out if that was the case. You could argue Shawn Mendes would be more famous and rich if he were gay.
Honestly, even if they are using us for album sales, good for them. God forbid they have to hold up their end of the bargain by staging public makeout sessions with either Shawn Mendes or Camila Cabello. It could be far worse.
