Unpopular opinion: I feel really bad for celebrities. Well, to clarify, I specifically feel bad for them when it comes to their romantic lives. Besides the fact that so many of them wind up divorced, just simply dating comes with a whole slew of unique pressures. Figuring out where a relationship is going already confusing enough as it is for normal people in this day and age but can you imagine trying to figure that out when you’re constantly being scrutinized by the public eye? For example, the whole world was wondering if Hailey Baldwin and Shawn Mendes were dating when, it turns out, the two weren’t really even into each other in that way.
OK, let me backtrack here for a second. Billboard reports that rumors started swirling about Baldwin, 21, and Mendes, 19, months ago when the two were allegedly spotted holding hands at Baldwin’s Halloween party back in 2017. Things got extra steamy when, according to US Magazine the two reportedly spent the holidays together in his hometown of Toronto. Then the pair really started pulling at the heart strings of fans when they rolled up to the 2018 Met Gala together.
I mean, seriously. Look at these pictures.
After all of those rumors and all of that speculation, it turns out Mendes and Baldwin are really nothing more than a couple of friends who casually hit up the Met Gala together when they both happen to be simultaneously single. Ah, so relatable. Doesn’t everybody have one of those friends?!?
More power to the two of them for managing to not date despite the pressure from their fans. As we all know, sometimes you just don’t like someone in that way and that’s TOTALLY FINE.
