Taylor Swift Sent Shawn Mendes a Text That Made Him 'Feel Sick'

Taylor Swift once sent Shawn Mendes a text that made him wake up in a cold sweat!

The 20-year-old “In My Blood” singer revealed what the 28-year-old “Look What You Made Me Do” crooner texted him in his new interview with Rolling Stone.

Earlier this year, when Shawn joined Taylor on her Reputation Tour in Toronto, Canada, she posted a video of herself putting glittery makeup on his face while backstage.

Taylor then texted Shawn to make sure she had permission to share the clip, and he agreed.

The article reads, “Swift was texting Mendes a cellphone video of them together, just to make sure he was cool with her posting it — a short clip of the night they were hanging out backstage at her Reputation Tour and she put her glittery eye makeup on Mendes’ face, to his delight. He told her it was fine without thinking, but later that night, he woke up in a cold sweat.”

Once the video was posted, Shawn had some regrets. “I felt sick,” he said, addressing those gay rumors. “I was like, ‘F–k, why did I let her post that?’ I just fed the fire that I’m terrified of.”

Shawn added, though, that he played with makeup as a kid, and he grew up with 15 female cousins, “braiding hair and painting nails. Maybe I am a little more feminine — but that’s the way it is.”

    Maybe he should do more therapy, less music and especially avoiding painful interviews like this one. How did a writer get so much access to him? Seems like that never happens this days and this is probably an example of why

    Mendes’ response to the text later made him feel sick. That’s not the same thing.

  • Lewisbieber

    yes he and Seacrest are straight. rotflmao

  • Sprite

    Macho football guys wearing cheerleader skirts waiving pom poms, what’s the diff?

  • ✮ Jenichu✮

    It doesn’t really matter if he’s gay. The bigger problem is his reaction to the rumors. He’s so afraid of people thinking he’s gay. He doth protest too much, methinks lol

  • robert wood

    Thou dost protest too much.

  • Karla

    Ok let me get this right. He said there’s nothing wrong with being gay and who cares if he is but he’s terrified of people thinking he is? I feel like he’s on denial, to be honest he looks, acts and even speaks totally gay for me. This is like when everyone knew Kristen Stewart was gay except her.

  • hannah

    Um no. A gay person would not like to keep being referred as having ‘straight’ mannerisms, over and over again. Similarly, Shawn being straight and keep getting called out to be gay is not fair to him and he has every right to be upset about it. His bestfriend is a transgender, so before attacking him for his reaction to being called gay, maybe understand who he is as a person first.

  • Karla

    And there really is nothing wrong if he is gay, I just feel like his reaction and attitute towards the rumours is strange, almost as if he were offended by it

  • Captain

    What is more sad here is that he is afraid of people thinking that he is gay. If he is gay that is actually cool. It doesn’t matter actually at all. It’s none of our business. He should calm down some and not feel offended if people call him gay. That word is not a bad one. It’s 2018, close to 2019, move on!!

  • Green envy

    He’s definitely gay. I always sensed this kid was a boy lover. He can have any girl but instead he’s never seen with a girl, ever. Only fans. He’s just a boy lover.

  • Judge Mental

    He’s bi, no big deal. In a few years he will come out like Ricky Martin did.

  • DUDE

    He is offended because people wont leave him alone about it and its none of their business.

  • DUDE

    Because he isn’t gay. He is allowed to whatever reaction he wants to the people that for years wont leave him alone. MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS.

  • DUDE

    He dated Hailey Baldwin….

  • Lola bien

    If he isn’t gay, he isn’t gay. He doesn’t need to be ashamed to be heterosexual. Geez…get a grip. He should deny being gay if he isn’t gay.

  • Jessica Rabbet

    What I don’t get is, I mean…if you didn’t know Ricky Martin was gay you are blind (not you, in general) so his whole music career is based on a lie bc he sings songs about women….how come nobody has brought this up? He’s a fraud.

  • ✮ Jenichu✮

    What are you, his Mommy? He’s a public figure. Gossip comes with the territory.

    all I said was he should stop getting upset by people accusing him. Chill.
