Back in April, teen qween Billie Eilish told Complex’s First We Feast that fellow pop icon Shawn recently texted her but admitted that she left his message on read.

“Shawn Mendes texted me, but I didn’t respond,” she said before laughing.

After spotting the interview, Shawn later responded to her claim via Twitter, simply writing: “LOL wow.”

Months later at a recent Q&A in Nashville during his press trip, a fan asked Shawn whether Billie ever replied and Shawn simply said, “She never did” which resulted in laughs from the crowd.

Yikes, dat shit’s cold.


The bb-faced singer has long been a fan of the ‘Bad Guy’ songstress. Back in June 2018, Shawn even tweeted his praises at Billie, writing:

“I think you are just really crazy-talented and everybody who hasn’t listened to your music is seriously missing out.”

The pair later appeared alongside each other in Calvin Klein’s recent campaign called #MyTruth, alongside other prominent members of young Hollywood including Troye Sivan, A$AP Rocky, Bella Hadid, Indya Moore, Chika, Noah Centineo, Kendall Jenner, Yoo Ah-in and Kevin Abstract.

Eilish and Mendes are perhaps the most vocal members of the campaign as the vid was soundtracked by ‘Bad Guy’ and Mendes appears in most of the imagery (including some fire shots of him in his jocks, you’re welcome).

But it seems like even their shared endorsement wasn’t enough to bring them together.

Ah well, Billie’s loss is Camila’s gain, right Cammy?
