Mariah Carey recently revealed she accidentally sent Shawn Mendes a text message intended for her cousin Shawn M. The songstress took to her Twitter and shared a screenshot of the text exchange, which showed her wishing Shawn Mendes a ‘Happy Thanksgiving Day’ on St. Patrick’s Day.
Along with the screenshot, the music icon penned, “My cousin Shawn M and I have this silly joke where we tell each other Happy Thanksgiving on St. Patrick’s Day @Shawn Mendes found out about it today.. sorry Shawn!!” However, it appears it did not take her very long to realize she had sent the message to the wrong Shawn as she followed it up with, “Wrong Shawn. Sorry. Also, I do realize it is NOT Thanksgiving. Haha.”
Meanwhile, Shawn kindly replied, “hahaha that’s okay I figured it was an inside joke” However, this isn’t the first time the unlikely duo were cracking up with social media fans. Last year, Shawn posted a shirtless selfie with an earnest caption confessing his love for Mariah’s expansive songwriting catalog.
Shawn gushed in the caption, “Grateful (blue heart emoji) The sun, coffee, my health, my family, old Mariah Carey songs, music, humans!!!” Mariah poked fun at Shawn as she recreated the photo and caption with a snap of her striking a similar pose in a blacktop. “Grateful (pink heart emoji) The sun, tea, my health, my family, old Shawn Mendes songs, music, humans!!!”
