Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello were staples in our newsfeeds back in the early days of the quarantine—taking long walks together and performing music on Instagram Live

But in recent months they've been keeping a pretty low profile to the point that some wondered whether they were even still a couple. Rest easy, fans. They are, though Mendes said in a new interview with Sirius XM the two haven't seen each other in a while. 

“I haven't seen her actually in, like, a month and two weeks, not that I'm counting,” he said, according to Elle. “She's back really soon, and I think it's interesting ’cause when your girlfriend is an insanely talented, real musician who writes her own music, it's scary to write an album around her. And she was with me when I was kind of in the studio doing it. I realized the trick is, like, show her the really rough demo version from your phone that you recorded, and if she doesn't like that, she'll tell you. Then don't wait to show her the mixed finished product. Because if she doesn't like it then, then you're kind of, I don't know what to say to you. I'm sorry.” (Mendes's new album, Wonder, comes out in December.) 

Mendes also offered some insight into that very slow walk the couple took that had the internet cracking up. 

“There's this one video of Camila and I, and we're, like, walking down the street really slow. We almost look like zombies from The Walking Dead,” he said. “And we're, like, really…and everyone's like, 'What the heck is going on with them? Are they on drugs?' And I was like, it's funny ’cause in that moment we were just pretty overwhelmed by the world. And we were like, 'Oh, man. This is a really hard time. This is scary for everyone.' And you know, we were just like, 'Let's just walk slow and kind of just meditate and be chill.’

“It was this really peaceful moment between us, but it's just so funny to see that, watching that video back,” he continued. “We were dying laughing because we literally looked like zombies.”

Cabello also had her boyfriend on her mind this week, gushing over his new music. 

“The world could use some magic, beauty, and Wonder always, but especially right now. @Shawn Mendes what a gorgeous gift to the world. He’s crafted this album with every last bit of his soul, his spirit, and his essence with the purest of intentions,” she wrote on Instagram. “My love, I’m so proud of the person you are and I’m so excited for people to see and hear your heart. ❤️”
