Why Taylor Swift fans are turning to Shawn Mendes
The current controversy between Taylor Swift and Shawn Mendes comes after the latter took a lie detector test on camera with Vanity Fair. In the video, which can be found on the Vanity Fair YouTube page, Mendes is first asked about his relationship with Swift and then whether he approves of her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. Mendes discusses touring with Swift in 2015 and replies that he and Swift are still friends, with Mendes often texting the “Cardigan” singer asking for music advice.
However, the test reveals that Mendes lied when he said that Alwyn “looks like a cute guy.” He clarified while holding up a picture of Alwyn, saying, “He kinda looks mean about her.”
The video was uploaded on Monday, September 20 and Twitter is already crazy about it. A Twitter user wrote, “[S]hawn Mendes saying that Joe Alwyn looks like a bad guy is the best thing I’ve seen all day, “while another simply tweeted, “Shawn Mendes is afraid of Joe Alwyn ???” Others questioned the issue itself. â€œI need to understand the thought process behind Vanity who released an entire photo of Joe Alwyn during the Shawn Mendes interview. Like ???â€, a user noted.
Mendes ultimately felt that Alwyn’s eyes were too blue and that he handled brown eyes better. While this reason doesn’t make the most sense, it can’t be easy to find yourself in such a position.
