Camila Cabello & Shawn Mendes Post Fake French Kissing Video At The Same Time Camila’s “Liar” Music Video Dropped

Marketing 101.

Aside from Camila and Shawn’s die-hard stans, the collective Internet agrees their relationship is a publicity stunt. Hey, “Señorita” hit No. 1 didn’t it?

Shamila isn’t shying away from the attention, either. After the two faced scrutiny for not locking lips during their performance together at the VMAs, they decided to kiss on camera finally. Sort of.

Instead of something heartfelt and intimate, they mocked haters’ criticism that they kiss like fish. So to prove them wrong, they… kissed like fish. It’s, um, something?

Camila outshined her newly-premiered, Dave Meyers-directed video for “Liar,” which happened to go live at the exact same time of the kiss clip (at the time of posting, there were 300,000 replies and more than 12 million views of this debauchery – way more than “Liar”). In it, Camila experiences groundhog’s day until she comes clean.

Jason Derulo Low-Key Shades Shawn Mendes

Jason Derulo drags Shawn Mendes’ VMAs performance.

What’s that sound? Those are the sirens cause IT’S JA-SON DERULOOOO. The singer is upset Shawn Mendes, who just scored his first-ever No. 1 with “Señorita,” is getting critical acclaim without (according to him) putting in the necessary work to up his performance game.

Derulo was asked by Official Charts if whole idea the traditional ‘popstar package’ has fallen out of fashion. Here’s what he had to say:

“Performing is such a lost art. I come from a different school,” Derulo said.

“When I watch these award shows and I see a dude comes out in a white t-shirt, I’m like, s**t, that’s terrible man, this is what the music industry is. And that s**t happens over and over again. How is that okay? How are we okay with our award shows looking like this? I love the total package, so you know, you kind of feel a little slighted.”

Derulo doesn’t mention Mendes by name, but it’s safe to say he’s referencing the “In My Blood” singer.

He also praised Normani and her back-flipping performance that same night. “Man, it’s so refreshing. So refreshing. That’s a clear example of the difference. And peoples reaction to is like, ‘What is this? Someone is singing and dancing? I don’t understand?!’”

Watch Camila Cabello And Shawn Mendes’ Hot & Steamy Video For “Señorita”

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes heat up the Internet with their new visual.

Camila and Shawn captured lightning in a bottle when they released “I Know What You Did Last Summer” in 2015, but a lot has changed since then. Both become pop superstars in their own right, but what hasn’t differed is their in-studio chemistry with one another.

Their new collab, “Señorita,” is a slinky mid-tempo that finds the two duetting over sugary guitar strings crafted by Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat. It’s a romantic summer fling transformed into song.

I love it when you call me señorita
I wish i could pretend I didn’t need ya
But every touch is ooo la la la
It’s true la la la
Ooo I should be running
Ooo you keep me coming for ya

There’s also a video for the song. In the Dave Meyers-directed video, Shawn and Camila fall in love. He’s a badass bruh with a motorcycle and she’s a waitress. They cross paths and engage in a dreamlike fantasy where they’re banging in a sun-lit hotel room. It’s going to be an uphill battle for Shawn to escape the gay rumors, but this is a step in that direction I suppose. It’s also worth mentioning he shows a glimpse of his tighty-whities, but they’re not Calvin Klein. That’ll cost extra.

Somewhere Justin Timberlake is seething.

Watch the new video below:

New Music Friday: Iggy Azalea, Shawn Mendes, Sabrina Carpenter, BANKS, Vampire Weekend And More

TGIF!

New Music Friday gives me anxiety. It’s a race! If I don’t post the new tunes promptly at midnight EST with every other music blog I turn into a pumpkin. Just kidding, but I feel so late (is anyone reading this?). But I think Iggy and Shawn would want me to get a good night’s rest so I can accurately describe their new tunes. No one wins when Jordan is writing while tired.

Iggy Azalea – “Started” (Video)

Iggy Azalea jumping ship to release music as an independent proved a very wise decision. She’s released slay after slay, and her new song/video for “Started” deserves glory. On it, Iggy boasts about starting from the bottom and now she’s rich. Her flow is a swift punch to the gut, and the icy beat is infectious.

Better yet – the video is brilliantly maniacal. In it, she’s a blonde bombshell gold digger who marries a 90-year-old millionaire, but before the ink dries she’s poisons the old ******* and inherits his fortune. She’s two for two this era!



Shawn Mendes – “If I Can’t Have You”
(Video)

Shawn dropped a new bop just in time for summer. It’s titled “If I Can’t Have You,” an upbeat ditty about wanting someone. A GIRL.

There’s also a new black & white video for the track. In it, Shawn shows off his immense musical talents in an oversized sound stage. There’s also an unnamed woman who joins him in bed momentarily, but she disappears… so he romanticizes his music instead.

“It’s a confident pop record and it’s clearly that for me,” Shawn said of the song, produced by frequent collaborators Scott HarrisTeddy Geiger, and Nate Mercreau. “I’m going through this phase right now where I’m testing out all the styles I can possibly be doing. Pop is whats in my blood no pun intended.”



Sabrina Carpenter – “Exhale” (Song)

Sabrina cools down the warmer months with a somber ballad titled “Exhale.” On it, the pop star croons about life’s mundane pressures that don’t weigh a lot individually, but together can really bring you down. “I listen to the labels / listen to the man / try to keep a sense of knowing who I am,” she sings over a whimsical beat. “I try to be an angel but I don’t think I can / think I’m reaching my limits.” Everyone just take a step back and take a deep breath; adulting is hard. Also, sign up for Exhale here.



BANKS – “Gimme” (Song)

BANKS’ synth-heavy new song is a gem. The singer’s subdued vocals slink over stuttering production and an infrequent pound of the bass. “’Gimme’ is a song about getting what you want,” Banks said of the ominous new tune. “It’s about knowing what you deserve, saying it out loud, and demanding it with no apologies. I’m ready to release this into the world and begin a new chapter.”



Vampire Weekend – “Sympathy”

Taking a break from pop for a moment, Vampire Weekend just put out a fiery rock tune with “Sympathy.” It’s one of their many new songs featured on the band’s double album, Father of the Bride, out today. Harrowing background vocals and a frenetic snap beat assist strumming guitars and frontman Ezra Koenig’s lead. A refreshing change of pace!



Shout-out to Logic and Eminem’s “Homicide.”



Happy New Music Friday:

Pop Prince Shawn Mendes Says The Gay Rumors Are Hurtful

The Internet won’t let it go.

I know what it’s like for everyone to think you’re gay, it’s just that I am. Shawn Mendes on the other hand says he isn’t, and has doubled, tripled, quadrupled down on that for years, but the people have spoken. No matter how many times Shawn defines his sexuality (HE’S STRAIGHT!!!1), the Internet won’t listen, and it’s taking a toll.

“For me it’s hurtful,” he tells The Guardian. “I get mad when people assume things about me because I imagine the people who don’t have the support system I have and how that must affect them.”

He adds: “That was why I was so angry, and you can see I still get riled up, because I don’t think people understand that when you come at me about something that’s stupid you hurt so many other people. They might not be speaking, but they’re listening.”

In 2017, Shawn posted a Snapchat story that read: “First of all, I’m not gay. Second of all, it shouldn’t make a difference if I was or wasn’t.”

Is Shawn also tired of being the nice guy?

“Yeah, I am! It sounds so stupid – to be a nice person is the best thing in the world – but, yeah, I’m 20 and I just want to have fun. What I don’t want to do is live the rest of my life thinking, ‘I wouldn’t do that because I’m known as Prince Charming.’ The second that someone corners you into a personality, you don’t want to be that person any more.”

This is normally where I’d ask Shawn to call me, but I’ll refrain.

I’d also like to point out that Shawn’s new cover labels him the “Prince of pop, ” and it caught the attention of Justin Bieber, who left a comment on Shawn’s post that read: “Hmm Gonna have to break a few more records to dethrone my title there bud (canadian voice)..but if you want we can play hockey for it but i heard your a real bender on the ice we could just drop the buckets and tilt for it.” He’s obviously joking, but is he???

Miley Cyrus and Shawn Mendes Team Up For New Song

Miley Cyrus and Shawn Mendes are reportedly collaborating on a new song together.

[adinserter block=”1″]

The collabo is only a rumor right now, but Miley seemingly confirmed the news. She liked and commented a heart on a fan’s Instagram post that circulated the rumor.

Adding fuel to the fire – the two might perform it together at the Grammys. Miley posted a photo at rehearsals, and eagle-eyed fans noticed Shawn Mendes’ name is marked on a piece of equipment (the black & white pic).

Related: We Vibin: Miley Cyrus Flawlessly Covered Ariana Grande’s “No Tears Left To Cry”

Both singers are formidable songwriters in their own right, so their new tune is sure to be immense. I predict a sugary guitar melody with Shawn singing in falsetto and Miley crooning in a low-tone, raspy Tennessee twang. I hope it centers around boys being boyzzzz.

[adinserter block=”2″]

But what about that Lady Gaga collab, Miley?
