Shawn Mendes talks about Justin Bieber encounter

Shawn Mendes took Vanity Fair’s infamous lie detector test Monday. During the interview, the 23-year-old Canadian singer was asked if he and Justin Bieber about the Met Gala three years ago.

During the said event, Mendes was linked to Hailey Baldwin. Mendes and Baldwin showed up at the event as each other’s date. It happened shortly before she got engaged to Bieber.

“When we met? No,” Shawn replied. “Never talked about that.”

In the same Q&A, Mendes who collaborated with Bieber for the single Monster, admitted he was nervous when he met Bieber. Mendes has credited the Baby singer as one of the reasons that got him into singing.

He added that he probably had some “face twitching” due to his nervousness. When asked if he said something weird during their encounter, Mendes said, “probably.”

Shawn and Hailey dating history

Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin dated between 2017 and 2018 months before she got engaged and eventually married Justin Bieber in late 2018. 

The pair sparked dating rumors when they were spotted holding hands at her Halloween party. Mendes also took Baldwin home to Toronto where they were seen cuddling over the holidays.

A source told Us Weekly their romance was casual because of distance. But they ultimately attended the Met Gala this year as other’s date.

During Mendes’ interview with Patrick Doyle for Rolling Stone, he said he was not bitter that she got back with Bieber. In fact, she texted Baldwin “congratulations” after learning about their engagement.

“She’s still one of the fucking coolest people ever—she’s not just a beautiful person visually, but she’s one of the most beautiful hearts I’ve ever met,” he said about Baldwin.

Meanwhile, Mendes and Bieber have developed a close bond over the years. When Mendes was starting out in the industry, he was often compared to Bieber and he didn’t find any problem with it.

When the Treat You Better crooner liked Hailey’s Instagram photos, Bieber defended him. The Sorry singer told their fans that Mendes and Baldwin are friends.

Shawn Mendes and his girlfriend, Camilla Cabello met Bieber and Baldwin at the 2021 Met Gala. The two gentlemen have a friendly encounter with Bieber telling Mendes “love you so much” when they parted ways.
