Now we really know what Shawn did last summer.

Shawn Mendes is a mega star and so, obviously, his fans wants to know everything about him. It could be anything; his height, his weight, what he had for breakfast, what presents he received for his 5th birthday, how many moles he has on his feet. But, let’s be real, most of us want to know about his mysterious love life.

There has been a lot of speculation but very little confirmed. There were those gay rumours which he flatly denied and then more recently there were rumours that he was dating model Hailey Baldwin. It was truly the darkest of days for the Mendes fandom.


Well now Shawn, who is usually quite protective about his private life, has given some exceptionally juicy details about his private life in an interview on the Jay-Jay, Dom and Randell show, a radio show in New Zealand.

During the interview they start to play a game in which the hosts ask Shawn questions and if he refuses to answer them one of the hosts gets an electric shock. Given he has the option of just shocking the host instead of asking some incredibly personal questions, Shawn is pretty chill about it and answers most of their questions, much to our delight.

The tea starts to spill around halfway through when the hosts ask, in reference to his song “Patience” which is about a hook-up with an older woman, what is the oldest lover that Shawn has ever had? To which he responds, “25” and then adds that he was 19-year-old at the time. The host hilariously replies “oh so recently!”, as Shawn only turned 19 back in August. Hailey Baldwin is 21-years-old, fyi.

Then things step up a gear when they ask Shawn if he “manscapes”, which is when men shave their pubes for those not in the know. Shawn, cool as a cucumber, responds, “Yeah, absolutely. I mean it would be weird if I said no.”

Just take a moment for mental image to sink and enjoy it everybody.

Next up, the million dollar question: when did Shawn lose his “v plates”?

Shawn takes second to think before saying “Uhh…16.”


Well there you are then. Shawn shaves his pubes, he's slept with a 25-year-old and lost his virginity at 16.

The more you know.
