Camila Cabello has opened up about her relationship with Shawn Mendes, after releasing ‘Shameless’ and ‘Liar’.
In an interview with Elle, she said: “Honestly, this past year and a half was the first time I really experienced falling in love with another person.
“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.”
When asked if she thought the ‘secrecy’ of hers and Shawn’s relationship created more ‘buzz’, she responded: “I don’t know; people can say whatever they want to say. They can speculate, but at the same time, we are going to live our own lives, enjoy it, and fall for each other like nobody is watching.
“That is how I want to live. I never want to open the door for people to feel like they are involved. Like I said, I want it to be mine and (his). That’s why I’m so tight-lipped about it: because I want to protect it.”
Shawn recently confirmed their relationship when a fan asked: “You’ve said you’ve never been in love, has that changed recently?”
The 21-year-old ‘Senorita’ singer responded, saying: “Honestly, I wanna say I wanna talk to you guys about this stuff but it’s not just me in the relationship.
“There’s another person involved and I can’t say things that I feel. It’s not just me deciding you know?”
Although he didn’t name Camila, fans were commenting under the video that was shared on Twitter, mentioning the ‘Shameless’ singer.
One fan said: “Honestly I am happy for the fact he is happy to be with Camila.”
Another wrote: “If Shawn and Camila wish to discuss their relationship they will do so on their own terms.”
