Camila Cabello says few words about her relationship with Shawn Mendes.
"I always want the love to stay between me and this person," said the singer in an interview in September 2019. Now Cabello has given an insight.
The singer left a few personal lines on Instagram.
The 23-year-old wrote about a photo she showed with the singer: "I learned a lot about love from this guy." Accordingly, it is not just happy moments that make a relationship.
It feels like the other is a mirror reflecting them.
Therefore she has to constantly face her fears, apprehensions, insecurities and thought patterns.
"Sometimes it's not as easy as it looks in pictures," wrote Cabello.
"Sometimes it's messy and uncomfortable and ugly."
Nevertheless, nothing goes beyond the power of love, it brings light into the darkness.
It is the gravitational pull "that gives you the inexorable strength to be braver, wiser and better than you were yesterday".
For Cabello, being in love also means "repeatedly choosing this person with whom we go through dirty things." That is much nicer, more raw and more real than perfection.
In her post, Cabello called for people to be more vulnerable on social media, instead of always presenting a perfect life.
Because this behavior could lead to "we all feel particularly lonely and strange".
So she asked her followers and fans to raise their glasses to the clutter and weirdness of being human.
“And the ease.
And the inexorable force that love is, ”added Cabello.
The singer has been with Shawn Mendes for a year and a half.
Together they delivered the summer hit of 2019 with »Señorita«. The Latin song was number one in the German charts for three weeks.
