The nostalgic gut-punch, off Swift’s album Evermore, tells the story of a woman or man briefly rekindling an intimate relationship with a past lover in their hometown. 

Mendes, who is home for the holidays, however, has no interest in meeting up with any old flames as he’s in town with his girlfriend Camila Cabello and their new pup, Tarzan.

Mendes, who opened for Swift’s 1989 World Tour in 2015, previously collaborated with the 31-year-old superstar on a dreamy remix of her song Lover last November. 

Additionally, Cabello is one of Swift’s closest pals after opening for her Reputation tour in 2018.

While his romance with Cabello is going strong, Shawn recently opened up about rumors about his sexuality while talking to Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast.

‘It was so, so frustrating for me because there were some people in my life that I was very very close to, who were gay and in the closet,’ he said of the gossip.

‘And I felt like this real anger for those people. It’s such a tricky thing. You want to say, ‘I’m not gay but it’d be fine if I was gay — but also there’s nothing wrong with being gay but I’m not.’ You don’t really know how to respond to the situation.’

He went on: ‘I’ve realized that we just have to stop having to be experts and politicians about it, especially as a famous musician who’s a guy. I need to be really f—ing messy and say the wrong things and apologize and say the right thing after I apologize and be confused about how to respond when people say I’m gay. 

‘Everyone’s been calling me gay since I was 15 years old. I’m not gay and I’m like, “What does that mean?” I had these problems with the way my voice sounded. I’m like, “How do I sit?” I’m always first to cross my legs and sit with a position of this feminine style and I really suffered with that s***.’

‘I think a lot of guys go through that and even worse than that there are just so many guys who are gay and in the closet and must be hearing s*** like that and just being like, ‘I’m terrified to come out,’ he continued.

‘I didn’t grow up wrestling,’ Shawn said. ‘I grew up getting my hair braided on New Year’s Eve. It just completely depends on the way you grew up in your life and your surroundings.’

But he’s come to find a comfortable place with girlfriend Camila.

Earlier this month, Mendes revealed that his Portuguese father Manuel and British mother Karen are very accepting of his girlfriend.

‘My dad is never very serious about things, but he would always just bug me and be like, ‘How’s my daughter-in-law doing?’ the Canadian confessed during his 79-minute interview on The Zach Sang Show

 ‘It takes a lot of courage to tell the woman that you love that you love her. I had five years of fear of getting rejected by her that just stopped me from doing it every time — or just confidence,’ he revealed in early December.
