Shawn Mendes gushes about quarantining with girlfriend Camila Cabello: ‘It’s been really nice’

Shawn Mendes has dished on how he’s been coping in quarantine with girlfriend Camila Cabello.

The 22-year pop star revealed his creative juices were following during lockdown as the pair holed up together in Miami amid the pandemic.

During his appearance on Tuesday’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, he explained: ‘ It’s funny. When I got here, it was like the beginning of the album process and I was like in a full panic state.

‘I was like, “There’s no way I’m going to make music. This is going to be impossible.”

‘But like a week goes by and you start cooking eggs in the morning, you start doing laundry and taking dogs for walks, and you like have a coffee mug that you use the same one every day, and it just becomes like really nice.’

The singer acknowledged that things like this sound ‘so normal for everyone else,’ but it’s somewhat ‘abnormal’ for him.

He continued: ‘I’ve basically been living in hotel rooms since I was 15. So it’s been nice, man, it’s been really nice.’

The hitmaker explained: ‘I had a real moment to find some stillness and just be quiet with myself and also find some confidence with my work that I was doing. There was a real place inside of me that was scared of saying something wrong or saying something wrong or doing something wrong or saying the wrong thing.

‘After chilling out and reflecting a bit, I found this place where, when we’re talking about matters of the heart, you don’t have to be an expert.’

The chat came after Shawn posted a rare shot of his home life with Camila as they cuddled together in the kitchen.

He captioned the shot: ‘reina [queen] ?’

Shawn Mendes’ documentary, In Wonder, drops on Netflix on November 23.
