We won’t lie, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes calling it quits after two years of dating really hit us hard!
However, it now seems like we might be getting the answers we so desperately longed for, as Camila Cabello has finally gone into more detail about the shocking split that took the world by surprise at the end of last year, telling Zane Lowe from Apple Music that both of their priorities seemed to change as they got older…
“As I get older, the priorities shift. And I feel like it was that way for both of us,” the 25-year-old Havana singer confessed, before going on to say that she still “loves” the 23-year-old It’ll Be Okay musician…
“I love Shawn, and I feel like there is literally nothing but love for him,” Camila said.
“I’m finally at a place where I feel like I’ve had experiences – I’m doing the therapy, I’ve put in a lot of work. My focus really has shifted a lot.”
Camila continued to talk about the “shift” in her focus, referencing how her number one focus didn’t seem to be on her career while she and Shawn were dating…
“Those years that we were dating, I don’t even feel like, even while I was writing this album, and even still now, I guess, my focus is really on, how can I be a well-rounded person? And apart from my career, my focus wasn’t even on my career,” Camila told Zane Lowe.
“My number one intention was, how can I just make music with people that I want to [expletive] have dinner with afterwards? How can me talking about these things help me build trust with people?
“How can I talk about the icky things that I haven’t talked about with anybody and then get it to a place where these people, because they’re like, ‘Oh yeah, I totally relate,’ can validate my own experience?
“And same thing with those years that we were together. My focus was just, how can I live a happy life and be in a healthy, happy relationship?
“Because we both started so young too, we’re really learning how to be healthy adults. And that sometimes means not having your number one focus be your career. And that’s okay.”
We love how open Camila was – and still secretly hope that the pair will get back together in the not-so-distant future
