Camila Cabello Tells the Funny Story of What Happened Before First Date with Shawn Mendes

Camila Cabello is telling the funny story about what happened right before her first date with boyfriend Shawn Mendes.

The couple has been dating for two years, though they have known each other for much longer than that.

Camila, 24, just did a Carpool Karaoke segment with her Cinderella co-stars Idina Menzel, Billy Porter, and James Corden. During the segment, they all sang Idina‘s Wicked song “Defying Gravity” and Camila revealed her connection to the song.

“I swear to god, before Shawn and I’s first date, I was so nervous I took two tequila shots and sang ‘Defying Gravity’ in the shower, over and over,” Camila said.

James then asked her to set the scene and what led to her doing all of that.

“Okay, so Shawn and I have been talking for a couple weeks now, like, ‘Oh my god, I’m so excited to see you.’ Like, ‘I can’t wait to kiss you,’ all that stuff, you know what I mean?” she shared. “So obviously, there’s a lot of stakes, you know, before the first time. I’m like, oh my god, do I kiss him when I see him? I don’t know…”

“We already had the duet together. We were friends, but we weren’t together,” Camila continued. “So, he’s about to come over and I’m like so nervous I just like can’t take it. My dad is there, I’m like, ‘Pour me two tequila shots, just do it.’ And I just sang ‘Defying Gravity.’”

Camila also opened up about running lines for Cinderella with Shawn.

“We did run lines together, for a brief period,” she said. “Shawn was self-conscious running the lines with me, and he wasn’t even in the movie.”

“He’s probably more the Cinderella in our relationship than I am,” she added.
