Cabello gushes over her guy
卡妹萌德这对小情侣自公开恋情后时常撒撒狗粮。近日，卡妹又在接受苹果音乐广播台Beats 1访谈时向主持人兼DJ Zane Lowe好好夸了一番男友萌德。她表示，萌德身上有很多她喜欢的品质，其中一点就是，萌德自带纯粹与自由的能量，能帮助他从伤害他的事物中解脱出来。而这一点卡妹表示自己也逐渐学会了。在卡妹心目中正是这一品质让萌德成为了自己遇见过的“最坦率和诚实的人”。卡妹解释道，“正是这样的纯粹让我觉得他不会撒谎或者伪造什么，因为这样做他自己会受伤。他就是这样纯粹的人，不断卸下重担，因为他不愿意这样生活，我就喜欢他这一点。”
Camila Cabello can't stop gushing about Shawn Mendes! In a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1 podcast, the 22-year-old singer revealed one of her favorite qualities about her 21-year-old beau. "I think that he has a very kind of pure, free energy," she said. "I feel like he feels this need to kind of lift the weight of whatever is hurting him in order for him to be free. And I think that that's really beautiful. That's a trait that I've adopted is like, whenever I feel like there's a weird energy between me and somebody or if my heart is hurting for some reason."
It's that exact quality that makes Shawn "the most transparent, honest person" she's ever met. "I think it's because of this purity that he has that I don't think that he can lie or fake because it hurts his heart," Camila explained. "He's just a very pure person and I think he's constantly kind of lifting those weights off of him because he can't live like that and I love that about him."
Camila and Shawn officially began dating this past July, though they've been friends for years.
Have a great ‘Weeknd’
Canadian singer The Weeknd has returned with a brand new single for fans to enjoy.
Titled Heartless, the new hit was released fresh off the three-year anniversary of his album, Starboy. The 29-year-old singer commented that Heartless is the beginning of what he describes as a “psychotic, brain melting chapter”. The song explores deep feelings of indecisiveness.
Although the singer wants to be a “better man”, it’s too difficult for him to break away from old habits. It has also been reported that The Weeknd is preparing to release a song called Like Selena. Could he still be troubled over his exgirlfriend Selena Gomez? We will just have to wait and find out.
