Shawn Mendes is the latest celebrity to put on the hot seat for Vanity Fair’s infamous lie detector test on Monday. The Canadian singer nervously laughed over 15 minutes of questions including while hooked up to a lie detector. He was asked a series of questions including whether if he trusts Taylor Swift’s boyfriend Joe Alwyn and if his mom still cleans his Toronto apartment.
The Canadian singer, 23, was first asked about Justin Bieber and meeting him. The interviewer asked while showing Mendes a picture of himself and Hailey Bieber at the 2018 gala months before Hailey and Justin became engaged, “Did the Met Gala get brought up?” He replied laughing, “No, never talked about that.”
The interviewer then questioned if Mendes thinks he is a nice guy. A confused Mendes answered, “Maybe I don’t… I guess I’m not a nice guy.” He added, “I’d say I’m up there in the nicer percentage of people.” He continues, “It’s hard to tell. I’ve never really actually met him or hung out with him but looking at this photo… Maybe, I think I could be a bit nicer than him.”
Mendes also opens up on Taylor Swift’s boyfriend Alwyn and said that he never personally met Alwyn while looking at a picture of him. “He looks like a sweet guy,” Mendes said, but the interviewer caught him. “You’re not telling the truth. You’re being deceptive.” Then Mendes continues, “I’m lying a little bit? Yeah. I mean, he’s kinda got a little bit of a villain look about him. I mean, he looks like a nice guy, but like it, deep-He at any movement could turn into a villain. You know?”
Mendes then once again broke out into a nervous laugh and turn on defensive mode. “He’s got really blue eyes and I struggle with like, eyes that blue. You know? Like, I find it easier to trust brown eyes,” Mendes said. “I just talked way too much about him.” On asking whether his and girlfriend Camila Cabello’s dog Tarzan came up to which Mendes was confident that Tarzan likes him more than Cabello. The singer said, “I would even go and say he likes me more.” He also that Cabello would agree. “I think she would through her teeth say it.”
But he seems again being nervous when asked what was on his For You page on TikTok. He replied, “Things. All types. Stuff.” The interviewer kindly said, “that’s private.” He responded while laughing, “Yeah, That’s why it’s a for me page.”
