In an interview with Jimmy Hill at the Global Awards 2020 in London on March 6, Cabello was asked if fans are going to get new music from her and Mendes anytime soon. “I want more, we want more but honestly we’re being in our twenties,” Cabello responded.
Then, when Hill questioned whether it’s because of their hectic schedules (the pop star is currently filming the Cinderella remake and the Canadian singer just wrapped up his massive world tour), Cabello made some rare comments about her relationship with her “Señorita” collaborator, admitting it’s not always easy.
“No, not even like that,” she explained. “Just like being in love is exhausting, it takes it out of you.”
So exhausting, apparently, that they have put a pause on their creative partnership. “We can’t even go to the studio, we can’t,” she added. “We’re trying to calm down.” The interviewer then cheekily asked her if she and Mendes were busy…in other ways (wink, wink). “No, I meant emotionally!” Cabello responded, immediately.
The 23-year-old singer also commented on her boyfriend’s new facial hair in the interview. “I won’t say that that’s my influence, but I really like it,” she admitted. “I think he likes it, but he’s never had it this long before and I’m just like, ‘don’t shave it, I like it.'”

Earlier this week, Cabello celebrated her 23rd birthday at Blackpool Tower in the UK, and Mendes traveled over 3000 miles to spend the night with her and her friends. In videos posted to her Instagram Story, the couple can be seen taking a selfie together and enjoying her Cinderella-themed bash complete with a congo line and pumpkin birthday cake.
Though the pair have stayed away from the public eye in recent months, it looks like their relationship is strong than ever.
