Camila Cabello has not been subtle: Her album Romance is about her two big real-life romances, including her current relationship with Shawn Mendes.
As she told Ellen DeGeneres on her appearance on the Ellen Show that airs today, the album is “about being in love. I was basically completely single for 20 years, and it was like the intensity and adrenaline of my life was in the studio, writing about an emotion that I wanted whereas this time, it’s just been a lot that has happened and I’ve fallen in love and out of love and in love, and that’s basically what this album is about is just kind of falling in love and what that feels like.”
Cabello also told DeGeneres that she and Mendes had feelings for each other way back in 2015, 2016. “We were stupid,” she said. “I think we both had a crush, but we were being babies about it. But we’re grown now!”
