Hugging and laughing, Shawn Mendes, 19, and Hailey Baldwin, 21, hung out at the Met Gala this year just as friends. In an interview, Mendes informed W Magazine that Baldwin is his, “really good friend.” However, the singer-songwriter seemed to be really entranced by Baldwin, calling her “amazing” and appreciating every minute of her company.
Both celebrities posted a few Instagram photos from the Gala, “holding each other,” and looking stunning. It is unclear whether Mendes is telling the truth about their friendly ties, but according to E! News, he recently wrote a song in which he exposes his true feelings for someone. It will debut on his new album, still a mystery about who it is about.
Shawn Mendes explains that expressing feelings through music is one of the “best ways” to do it. It’s certainly a creative and romantic way to say you care. And imagine if you’re the one the song is for – now that’s special.
