Shawn Mendes is Single and Still in the Closet

Since Shawn finally ended his bearding contract...erm, "relationship" with Camilla Cabello, let's continue to discuss him here.

What do you think Shawn will do next?

He’ll finally allow himself to be seen naked, following in the footsteps of Justin Bieber.

He is not going to beard again anytime soon (this was embarrassing enough), and he won't have a meltdown till his career derail (so we have to wait till next album to know).

If both things have little chances to happen, coming out has a big fat zero

He's gotten boring, he hasn't released anything interesting in a while and his looks can only take him so far. I liked some of his songs like "Lost in Japan" but that's not enough to keep him afloat. Does he want to be an artist or a model/influencer? Prince, George Michael, Usher, Lenny Kravitz and D'Angelo are/were real musicians who are/were beautiful and extremely talented. But I guess that era of being the total package ended.

R17 Well, Ricky never hated himself. His situation was a lot worse than Shawn, he was promoted as hottest thing, he was a latino stallion and the time was very different.

It's curious that Ricky is one of those cases that the coming out really worked in his favour

by Anonymousreply 2508/15/2020

Ricky had the Menudo boy band trauma to overcome. That must've been difficult.

by Anonymousreply 2608/15/2020

I feel a big difference between Ricky and Shawn is. Ricky came out as a solo artist in North America during the late 90s Latin Explosion and Menudo was not that popular in the States. And his target audience was adult women not teenage girls. Given that George Michael was outed and humiliated around the same time as Ricky's US debut, Ricky had to play it sly since The US was still pretty homophobic. I don't think Ricky ever said anything homophobic or offensive like Shawn and also Ricky comes across as intelligent and well-spoken unlike Shawn who sounds shallow and inarticulate. I'm sure Ricky's sexuality was more known in Latin America and a lot of people just didn't care.

I don't care if he's gay or straight, I just find him boring, shallow and dense. He had this "nice guy" image for so long but nobody is falling for it anymore. The whole Rolling Stone interview and Camila thing makes him look pathetic. I think he has talent and could be using it much better but nope chooses to be an attention seeker. He seems delusional about his talent level too. He's no Bob Dylan or Neil Young or even Michelle Branch or John Mayer. I feel the bar for music is set so low nowadays.

I’d say he’s more comparable to Joan Osborne than Britney Spears. Britney has reached single name status therefore she is of a caliber that’s higher than anything he can hope to achieve. If he’s reading this: Just come out already! We promise we’ll be nice. (Kind of.)

by Anonymousreply 3408/15/2020

R34 Agree, regardless of what people's opinions are on Britney's talent, it is indisputable she was the biggest female pop star of the 2000s. Shawn Mendes is not even close to the level of fame nor has any significant hits to claim. Camila is probably bigger than him right now. If he does come out as gay it may help his career like it did with Troye Sivan and Hayley Kiyoko but none of those people are really that big either.

R29 If he is straight he is the gayest straight guy ever (which is and weird combination with his homophobia)

I really can't believe those two wasted a good 4 months on this bs quarantine couple routine. I guess he stayed because the weather was nicer in FL than Canada in the beginning. I remember when their team tried pushing the ghost story that an engagement could occur. They wanted to show how serious these two are getting, but it's laughable for pop stars on the assent to upset their fans with a marriage.

The protests really hurt Camilla's brand. People are not going to forget her racists tweets. Sorry girl. Shawn is barely able to get a pass, which is why their teams are distancing them. Two problematic artist with racists tweets is not a good look. Seems like the only male pop star to come out better from this quarantine is Justin Bieber. He dropped a hit with pop princess Ariana Grande, skyped with Gen-Z favorites like Tom Holland, and reminded older folks like myself that he has his base on lock (which includes some straight guys).

He just seems so fake but I’m not his target audience.

He also seems to have hit an invisible ceiling. I think because he has a thin personality and only skin deep. You can’t get much juice from that. You can make for a good model though. Or commercial spokesperson. Like for ProActiv, etc. Quite lucrative.

R48 His last era was successful with one number 1 and one number 2 (it's difficult to understand why he didn't release more singles) and decent sales of his album.

He even got those grammy nomination. So his career is perfectly ok right now.

The problem is that unlike Justin Bieber he didn't gain any adult fans, and without adult fans your lifespan is very limited

R50 If only they were able to refuse to come out without bearding. Everytime they are in a "relationship" they are mocked because it's simply not believable which make them look pathetic.

I don't think Shawn or Taylor or allowed to come out. Shawn because of his team and Taylor because of his family/religion. I followed Taylor on FB and Instagram because the guy is actually really funny. Unfortunately, most of his posts are now about his "girlfriend" and they just aren't believable as a couple at all.

I think Taylor could have a pretty successful career as a comedian if he'd just come out already.

by Anonymousreply 7108/16/2020

R71 again. I meant to add that I also think that "fake" magazine cover a few years back was just Taylor testing the waters to come out. Then it all went to hell.

by Anonymousreply 7208/16/2020

R71 Taylor is old enough to take his own decisions and he decided he doesn't want to be gay, period.

The fact that people laugh at his attempts to beard should be enough for any inteligent man to at least stop making yourself looking like a fool but he seems unable to stop.

He is a millionaire, his career is not going anywhere (maybe because his acting chops are very limited) but he is unable to live a full life which is all kinds of pathetic.

And yes, Shawn will follow the same route, but i can see Shawn exploding if he is questioned on an interview, and i can see him screwing it big time (if he was able to do so bad in a printed interview things could go out of control in a tv or radio interview). He seems to hate himself.

And the positive side he is way younger than Taylor so maybe there's some hope.

What amuses me is the fact that he is so obsessed with people thinking he is gay but then he chose some very feminine clothes, because those boots he always wears are incredibly feminine

by Anonymousreply 7308/16/2020

R71: Shawn can't come out because his fanbase is still teenage girls. He hasn't gained any adult fans. If he came out, he could become the poster boy for the gays.

The comparisons to Ricky Martin are interesting. Shawn needs someone to come in and engineer the next phase of his music career.

I compared Shawn to 80's Portuguese teen pop singer Glenn Mederios in the last thread because they both seem incredibly gay and had a lisp when they sang/talked. I hope Shawn doesn't follow this path because Mederios is married now with two kids, is ugly and a Catholic. Blech.

There are singers and actors who struggle with the bearding, there are others who are so ambitious that they do what they have to do, but most of them know who they are. I think Shawn simply refuses to accept he is gay, he is uncomfortable with the fact that others think he is gay.

by Anonymousreply 13308/19/2020

Hollywood is fake and phony and all about keeping up an illusion. It is only pro-money. Hollywood knows that with male singers who sing silly love songs to tween girls have to keep up a fantasy of being "obtainable" and also not to piss off their homophobic parents. Same with young male teen actors with fangirls. Hence they try to keep them in the closet. For adult male actors who want leading man roles, it is more they are afraid their sexuality would get in the way of them being casted and audiences would be so homophobic as to not go to see the movie.

by Anonymousreply 13908/19/2020

R133 I don't think Shawn is one of those cases.

Let's be honest, at least half of the closet cases who beard do it because they are ambitious and have a big ego. Most of them have no shame and they are ready to go very far to keep the charade (even in some cases it's not working to promote their careers at all).

In other cases they are naive and manipulated, and most of them are uncomfortable with the situation.

But in my oppinion Shawn is not in any of those cases. It's pretty obvious that he just doesn't want to be gay and he doesn't want people to think he is gay.

^ It's true that he comes across as a bit self loathing and his queeniness is extremely apparent in spite of his best efforts to appear "straight," but it's obvious that he's also facing pressure from his management team to stay closeted. His "buds" are all straight bros (with the exception of Connor), so you know there's an element of peer pressure there. Who I'd really like to hear from is that guy Kareem, the one Shawn called the N word. I bet you he knows the real Shawn and would spill the beans if given an incentive to do so.

R133 - It's not "hollywood." Hollywood is a patch of land. It's people .. or more likely a person that puts pressure on celebrities to behave in a certain way. And sometimes the only putting pressure on them is themselves.

SM is either badly managed by someone who is controlling, and has convinced him that being truthful about who/what he is would be damaging to him - or he is like the millions of other closeted men who have convinced themselves that the world cannot handle their sexuality, when they are the ones who can't handle it.

Bieber had a terrible reputation but it got better in recent years. Yes, he seems on the verge of a meltdown all the time, and all the religious stuff is or a way to become a cultist or a way to blur the bad reputation, but in part is working, maybe because he is not constantly in the news and most of the times is because of his music and not his mess of life

R182 Not the best idea. HW trend is to say you are queer, sexually fluid or that your sexuality is on the spectrum. It's pretty effective because you don't have to explain all your fake relationships, second if you are "dating" a woman, suddenly it's believable because you "came out" so you don't have reasons to lie, and third, when you decide to date a guy you just came out years ago.

R188 Well, in his case there was a fourth reason because he avoided any criticism for playing so many gay characters. Instead of defend his right to play any character (that's acting) he came out as something (i still don't understand what he really said).

And he is a prime example of how well this work, he was praised for his brave coming out, he avoided any criticism for playing so many gay character, his relationship was believable (even he was pretty obvious going out with his girlfriend just after coming out when he was very private before that) and the gay rumours vanished.

And he is far from being one who can benefit more for this type of coming out , because he avoids social media and he doesn't use his private life to promote his career (maybe because he can act, he has contacts and a good reputation).

For gay actors who have no shame in bearding and use the fake relationship to promotion is a very good way to come out, because people forget that coming out if you are vague enough (they will only see you with women after all). The only problem is that any type of coming out will probably put you out of lead man roles on blockbusters which is what most of these actors really want

I was very dissapointed with Lucas Hedges, he seems a nice guy and he is talented, and generally he is articulate on interviews, but his "coming out" was a bubbling mess, it's absolutely impossible to know what he wanted to say and the fact that he appeared with his girlfriend just after that (some of the kisses were Shawn Mendes or Timothee Chalamet level of awkward) make it look like an hypocrite.

The worst thing is that gay media promoted his "coming out" as brave, when it was self serving.

Never have gotten the gays drooling over Mendes. Cute kid, seems like a sweetheart, but bland as all hell. I’m guessing he has maybe one more album of sensitive heartthrob music and then he’ll either have to make a play for maturity or start acting.

If he’s gay I doubt he comes out until he actually finds a guy he cares about. If he’s just closeted but hooks up with hoes on the road, he’s not throwing away his career for that.

by Anonymousreply 20908/24/2020

He’s Canadian. He probably cared about every guy he’s been with on the downlow and it made no difference. The risks don’t outweigh the rewards so long as he has to cultivate a teen girl fanbase who dream of being his wife.

Frankly, I don’t blame him. Why not have your cake and eat it, too? Who says he’d have a loving relationship if he wasn’t in the closet? He might be on Grindr hopping from dick to dick like many guys his age, in which case his life wouldn’t be much different than it is now.

Shawn Mendes has issues with his sexuality. I firmly believe he is gay and hates himself because of it. People who dismiss that notion because "hey it's the 21st century," or "hey, Canadians love the gays" are living in a bubble.

Yes, Canada is a great country to live if you happen to be gay, but that doesn't for a second mean there is no homophobia or cultural heteronormativity in Canada. LGBTQ+ youth in Canada still attempt suicide in higher numbers than their straight counterparts, and the majority of homeless youth in Canada between the ages of 16 to 24 are LGBTQ. There are still frequent hate crimes committed against LGBTQ+ folks. Conservative parties in Canada still push back against LGBTQ rights, many religious communities believe we should have no rights at all. So we should stop with this sugar-coated perception that young LGBTQ people have no more issues. That they don't experience the same self-loathing, fear of rejection, and closeting that those of us who are older faced when we were his age. I am 36 from Toronto, Ontario, and grew up in a "liberal voting" house. I didn't come out until I was 22, and it took until I was 30 before my family and I were 100% comfortable talking about my sexuality.

Shawn grew up in a region of Ontario referred to as the 905 which is still known to be fairly socially conservative. Also, I've gotten the perception form things Shawn has said about his dad, that he's something of a "hyper" masculine type who'd have issues with a gay son.

I think he's gay, he knows he's gay, and he's probably had sex with men by this point. But he still has issues to deal with about it. I also think that he's so in love with the idea of being famous, he's scared of anything that could ruin or at least slow his career.

I agree with R215 that Shawn is gay but is not comfortable with it. I think he was raised with certain expectations about what it means to be "a man." In several interviews, he stated that his family was very religious and that he went to church every Sunday growing up (He has said Christian but not what domination though I've hard his paternal grandparents are Pentecostal). His father also seems like one of those "hyper-masculine" types. Shawn has said that his dad tried to force him to play sports when he was a kid despite not being very good. Also, Pickering, Ontario, is not the most socially progressive place. I am eight years older than Shawn and grew up in Markham, and like Pickering, it's very "WASP" and somewhat socially conservative. Pickering is part of the 905, which is what we call a "red Tory" areas. For non-Canadian, Tory means conservative and Red means Liberal. When we say Red Tory, we mean voters who flip between voting Liberal or Conservative. They tend to be fiscally conservative but socially moderate. So even if he came out to his family and they were cool with it (either right away or eventually), I think that environment does build a lot of self-hatred. I think it's highly dismissive to say young queer youth have no more obstacles.

Now, here's the thing. If he weren't famous, I think he's the kind of gay guy who "dated" girls in high school, but come university would have begun to start coming out and dating guys and get more comfortable in his skin. But because he is famous and lacked time to figure himself out. I think he's still very much at war with himself. I even believe he might not identify himself as gay even if he's (which I consider likely) has had physical relationships with dudes. And yes, his public relationships are fake, and he is very in on it for publicity purposes, but I still don't think he's out and proud privately. Even his social circle is suggestive of longing to be "a bro." His anxiety rests in the fact that he is naturally effeminate, and like many young gay guys, showing any degree of effeminacy is a source of great insecurity.

R229 There is a difference between figuring your sexuality out and actively accepting it. I don't think R228 is saying that Shawn doesn't know that he's gay or that he hasn't fucked around with guys, but that he's not comfortable being gay. I'm 37, I came out to my family at 19, started my first serious relationship at 21, but honestly I don't think I was actually fully comfortable with my sexuality until I was 28 or so.

Oh yeah there is no fucking way he doesn't know he's gay. But yeah, he has serious issues with his sexuality.

They were flamed out of existence by nutty fans but there is a part of me that believe that it's a possibility. Yes, he gets defensive whenever the topic of his sexuality comes up, but it's rooted his fear of being perceived as "feminine." I still think it's more likely he's gay, but I think he has some gender issues. He's 22, and a young 22 at that, and he's still no where near accepting himself for who he is, gay, trans, straight, bi, whatever......

Styles is bisexual and doesn't mind who knows it. He has another T shirt which says 'I'd Like To Fellate George Harrison'. He had men grinding on him in his 2019 video for Lights Up. His song Medicine has the lyrics 'the boys and the girls are in/I mess around with them/and I'm okay with it'.

Styles likes orgies with maybe four women and one man.

How did it blow up in his face? By all accounts, the mission was a success. When you search “Shawn Mendes” on google images now, many of his pics are him snuggled up with a girl.

R271 - they were trying to create a new Latino hot "it' couple for people in their 20s. Camilla had some unbelievable (and really undeserved) success with 'Havana' - the popularity of which was a real head scratcher.

She was releasing a new solo album with a duet with him. They wanted to create a faux romance from the fact that they made a song together and have it take off.

Instead, it exploded in their faces. It was so transparent. Finally some people are starting to understand 'media' romances. Most people fall for it, but us gays know a lot better from decades of experience.

Why don't we call people who speak English: Anglonics or people who speak French: Franconics?

R275 He was very young and he seemed a really nice guy. Sometimes a nice guy is well received in an hypersexualized industry (it happened with Chris Brown when he started, that didn't turn out well anyway).

His first single was even interesting, Life of the party was not the usual teen hearthob debut (of course Troye Sivan, who released his first single at the time did it better because Happy little pill is a way better song). He was not selling sex when he started, he was not promoting himself with fake relationship (like all Disney stars do).

But then fame came and he didn't digest it well. His image now is very different, and that RS interview was a disaster (someone with a worst image than the one he had back them probably would suffer way more consecuences).

And it goes beyond the obvious homophobia (he is not a rapper, he can't afford being an openly homophobe), the worst part is that he came like a fame whore who cares way more about followers than about his music. He was lucky he has two hits with his last album, but one failed lead single and his career will be in trouble

Shawn isn't technically Latino - but I'm just going by marketing and publicity. I believe they did try to push Mendes into a Latino category - particularly with the song Senorita - due to his last name.

It's PR - which is not known to be a stickler for exactness.

That's my theory - I may be wrong - but they were definitely pushing them as an "it" couple with the release of that song. Make of it what you will. It didn't work.

by Anonymousreply 28709/12/2020

the whole latino vs hispanic classification is more of a north american thing. over in europe, we refer to them as a whole as south americans, or their country or origin. so if someone's from brazil, we'll call them brazilian. even if they're a black brazilian, they're gonna get referred to as brazilian because of their accent when speaking portuguese. i had these 3 venezuelan guys at work that escaped here because of the issues going on in venezuela, they were all white, paller than the average portuguese, and 2 of them were even blond and had blue eyes. none of them were categorized as latinos, they were just venezuelans. i think it was last year that rosalia, a spanish singer, who managed to gain some international success, won a latino award from some music award show, and people were pissed because a white girl was being given an award made for latinos. if they tried to rebrand shawn as latino, and especially if he started getting awards because of it, outrage would happen. because people would be pissed a white portuguese boy is being given latino awards

WASPs don't hold much power anymore. Look at demographics. Most of the East Coast politicians are Italian and Jewish. Many politicians in the South are Black and Midwestern cities are Black. Many politicians in the Midwest and Rocky Mountains are German or Scandinavian descent. Many politicians in the West Coast and Florida are Latino. Actual WASPs are minority in America. Most White Americans are German and Irish with some English and Scottish. No one under the age of 60 cares about WASPs. And most WASPs are poor whites in the South and Appalachia.

82% of the top 1% are White. More than half are WASP's. They might not hold the kind of political power they once did, but trust me, they are far from irrelevant. Their definition of whiteness still has a great hold in American life. All of those other White groups are still considered Ethnic, in the category of Ethnic Whites. Only WASP's are purely White.

But I don't get DL. They don't live in the real world.

I need to understand why Cameron Diaz has been universally accepted as white by almost everyone and has played white girl roles if white Latinos aren't "white"? So has Frankie Muniz and Jennifer Lopez both play white roles if the role is called for it and nobody batted an eye.

Megan Markle, Wentworth Miller and Rashida Jones who are all half-white and half-black have played white roles. Outside of the internet, race has more to do with how you look. It's based on phenotypical appearances on the outside.

That's the same reason why certain mixed race people like Mario Lopez, Rosie Perez, Halle Berry and Jesse Williams can't play white roles because they don't look white. Nobody even enforced the one-drop rule that much in the old days because it was hard to do, so many white people in the South may very well have some black blood. People who aren't black have been classified as black just because of their wide noses or curly hair in the past for God's sake.

People also identify more with their culture and their upbringing than actual genetics, Cameron grew up as a white girl in Long Beach and California has many white Latinos who assimilated into mainstream white culture just like the Jewish population has too.

In 2020, Shawn has lost a lot of fans to Harry Styles and his critically acclaimed sophomore album Fine Line. The album went platinum in the US within three months and hasn't left the top 10. Harry is just more interesting - less conventional, and just as hot. He's an actor as well, which adds to his appeal. Just been case in a feature film opposite Florence Pugh. Styles would never give an ugly homophobic interview like Shawn's to Rolling Stone. Nor does he have very public relationships with lashings of PDA to 'prove' that he's straight. He's fine with people thinking he is bi, gay, queerbaiting, whatever. He's just more interesting.

There's two reasons certain people get tons of threads here. Fraus and fangirls with their obsessive posts - positive or negative. And then real DLers mocking the subject of the thread - and Shawn offers a lot of opportunity for mockery. Needless to say, the real DLers aren't buying his music.

DL is not a place to post about someone's actual music unless the person in question is at least 40 years old.

You really thought people only wanted to rant about 'bearding contracts' ad infinitum, didn't you? Tragic tinhat. You only despise Harry because he debunked your Larry fantasy. You still think het chav Louis Ratlinson is gay and bearding, don't you?

Moving on from the completely useless discussion of Harry Styles, Shawn's deluded frau fans still won't accept that he's not bearding...I mean "in a relationship" with Camilla Cabello any longer, despite not having been seen with her in months and their "breakup" being leaked to US Weekly weeks ago.

R354 Not even remotely.

Harry's concerts had great reviews when he was in Spain and it was on the most important paper not on a teen magazine.

Harry's first album was even too risky because it was not commercial or radio friendly which explains the lack of hits.

Shawn is totally generic, his music and specially his lyrics. If he is not able to grow up with his fans he'll be done in a couple of years

by Anonymousreply 36809/14/2020

R362 I'm in my late 20s and was out of high school when Harry and Shawn blew up, I wasn't in their demographic either. Actually, scratch that, any pop music like Bieber was hated in my high school as that was for grade and middle schoolers. Bieber transitioned to an adult sound with Purpose though. Hip hop like Lil Wayne and rock music like Arcade Fire was still big and pop like Timberlake, Beyonce, Chris Brown, John Mayer, Gaga, Katy and Rihanna too. Boy bands like NSYNC and Backstreet only became well liked again due to nostalgia. I did like them as a little boy in the late 90s and early 00s though but would have never listened to them in my teen years.

Back on topic, Shawn and Harry are just pop artists with manufactured images to me. Neither are amazing to me. I care more about the quality of the music than the imagery and always have. I think Harry has great quality pop music and liked both his solo albums a lot. Shawn has only a few songs that are listenable and hated 'Treat You Better' so much. One Direction was generic Disney pop that made no impression on me except maybe "Story of My Life". I'm open minded so I will try younger music like I listened to Billie Eilish out of curiosity, she's just okay and I find nothing unique about her at all.

On their attractiveness, Shawn has the cute boy next door look and nice body. Harry has nice eyes, smile and toned body. Neither are sexy or beautiful to me at all and I've seen better on the street

I mean think about that. If Harry is oh-so-great, why are you having to come into a Shawn Mendes thread and lie about him being seen with Harry to get people to talk about him?

Nobody here wants to talk about Shawn Mendes except in the context of him being gay and bearding, which is a fantasy. You return again and again to this fantasy despite the fact that his relationship with Camila is no longer public. You find it impossible to explain why it's no longer public because you think it was only intended for PR so you try to push a new narrative that they've split and he's looking around for another beard

R381 Because everyone else can see it for what it is - gaybaiting. It's only fantasist fraus like you who seem to think it's real. And if you're really claiming his gaybaiting is already threatening his sales, what's his excuse for not coming out then?

Plus, here's the thing - even if he is actually bi, gay or whatever, until he publicly identifies as such, it's still gaybaiting. And you know it's true. It's why you're here in the first place - because if you weren't, no-one would be talking about him on DL. You need to artificially create conversations about him so you can try and convince yourself he has some kind of connection with the gay community. But deep down, you know it's all fake.

Today, all you need is a social media presence, be "relatable" and a good PR team to become a famous singer. The actual quality of music doesn't matter anymore. Anyone can just upload their music and it doesn't even have to be that good. Fans will obsessively cling to this online personality they feel attachment too. One Direction, Fifth Harmony, Shawn Mendes, Halsey, Billie Eilish, Troye Sivan, Conan Gray, Lizzo, most trap/SoundCloud rappers, Joji, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato all benefited from social media followings. They are liked more for what they symbolize to their fans rather than the quality of music they put out there.

To people who care about the music, they don't care that much about how relatable an artist is or their personal lives or physical appearance. They're less likely to be impressed with many of the pop stars out there.

The word 'gaybaiting' doesn't even exist in the vocabularies of people in the homophobic territories. Why would someone risk their fucking life PRETENDING to be gay? Styles has a huge audience in Latin America, In China, in the MIddle East, in Japan and Tokyo. None of these countries are impressed by gay or bi popstars.

So Shawn Mendes is 'an actual LGBT artist is he?

There are no threads about Troye, Olly, Sam Smith and Adam Lambert because Dataloungers aren't interested in out gay men. As soon as Styles made it clear he was bi, conversation around him dried up too. You queens would far rather discuss straight guys like Shawn who you fantasise are gay.

by Anonymousreply 39409/15/2020

R393 Other countries don't have the same ideas about masculinity as The US/UK/Australia does. Japan and South Korea have pop idols that are way more flamboyant and colorful and feminine than Styles is. Latin American countries are very emotive and expressive in general and place high focus on men dressing dapper. The Middle East also doesn't suspect homosexuality if two men are intimate (hugging, kissing) or dress flashy. It's only sodomy they punish, so you have to get caught butt-fucking. So Harry is only seen as "gay-baiting" in The US/UK/Australia because of our cultural standards of masculinity and heterosexual behavior.

R396 Harry never came out as "gay" or "bi" though. Wearing colorful gear, high heels and make-up is not indicative of your sexuality. Nor is having rainbow flags everywhere. Please understand that the world is not The US/UK.

Most people around the world likely don't make those assumptions of Harry's sexuality. Because the idea of wearing "girl colors", being this stoic and non-emotional robot and the idea that men showing affection to other men means "you're gay" is a very Western Anglo conception based on puritanical Victorian views on masculinity.

Shawn sang something at TIFF - I'm not totally sure what because his singing "style" makes it really difficult to work out what he's actually saying. It's one of the few times I've watched him sing - he shouldn't have to put so much effort in to sound that mediocre.

And his tax-dodge, sorry, Foundation, is sponsoring some award at TIFF now. So he's definitely laying the, um, foundation for a move into acting.

Harry technically isn't entitled to talk about his sexuality but I do find him very cynical in a way, he knows how his fanbase is so fanatical online.. He's like Beyonce where he'll enable his crazy ass fanbase who take every little symbol, color, phrase, expression and visual to create this grand narrative about him. He knows what he is doing and I feel he should call out the ones who are cyberbullying others on social media.

R402 That's why it was pretty reprehensible of him to put one of his exes names in his songs and not even give a warning beforehand. He absolutely knew his fans would work out the reference and go after the poor girl.

Plus they let him get away with stuff they'd cancel others over. Like when they (rightly) criticised Niall being seen at a party during lockdown - but then they have no criticism at all about Styles driving across Europe making stops along the way.

I remember an interview where Liam was talking about falling in love, and he was saying about finding a girl and Harry interrupted him to say not necesarily a girl.

Harry hinted that he is not straight a lot of times. The fact that most of his relationships are obvious pr stunts (you can see that he and Taylor Swift barely stand each other even on pics) doesn't help either

I agree with this. However, I will say that Bieber and Timberlake have had success on the R&B charts.

I just can't see Shawn having that same appeal when his singing is so bland, despite all the vocal riffs and runs he does which owes a lot to R&B.

I cant see Shawn transitioning to an adult sound. John Mayer already was targeting an adult audience with his debut and dabbled in multiple musical genres like soul, blues, and Americana to expand his audience. Mayer can't sing that well but he's a very talented guitarist which got him in The Grateful Dead. Shawn doesn't seem to have that drive to actually be a musician. He's too focused on his brand, social media, modeling and fake relationships. Like the Jonas Bros, he is too commercial and not taken seriously by musicians. John Mayer took interest in him but seems to have moved on to the next cute young pretty boy guitarist to be his apprentice.

Imagine actually thinking this. How much of a bubble you'd need to live in to actually believe this kind of crap. That's right, no other "artist" supported gay rights like Harry Styles. No straight person ever showed allyship as committed as, er, waving a Pride flag in a room full of people who adore you. There's definitely been no artists who have done things like put their career on the line to speak out for gay rights and shown a true and abiding commitment to the gay community. Nope, Harry Styles is the only fucking one.

By the way, as for waving around Pride flags - he waves BLM flags around now too, right? How did that start out? As an organic and deeply abiding belief in the BLM movement? Or as a PR move to head off criticism and promote himself?

The one thing that confuses me about Harry Styles fans more than anything is their constant desire to glorify him as things he isn't, whether than be the gay icon we're all apparently meant to worship, or the intellectual artiste they so desperately want to pretend he is. And that's without even getting into the sexuality thing. It'd surely make your lives all so much easier to just stan who he actually is, not who you want him to be.

R447 Well, he will be playing a gay role soon. Shawn couldn't do that (because the nightmares, you know)

by Anonymousreply 44909/20/2020

So Shawn is apparently at Camila's house in LA. He did some online interview and the fangirls matched the background to her house.

The fangirls must be thrilled. They never believed the rumors that soulmates Shawn and Camila had broken up.

Shawn wins some awards in Canada. The Weekend should have beaten him because he's more successful and talented.

Então ele tem outros pares de sapatos além daquelas botas feias, que quase caiu no rabo por usá-las. r453 😂😆

R450 they were friends before the whole bearding thing, and are probably still friends now. so it hardly means anything he's at her place in l.a. but the few blind people who believed they were an actual couple are probably thrilled.

R456 em raras ocasiões ele usa algo além dessas botas estúpidas. gostava de conhecer quem decidiu que isso ia ser parte do estilo dele, só para lhes dar um par de chapadas.

Also LOL Shawn briefly followed a gay porn Twitter account before he unfollowed it.

Speaking of his follows, his recent ones include a Harry Styles fan account (hmmmm), Robert Irwin and a bunch of Black activist groups.

I wonder if Shawn reads the DL. If he does, he should let us know by following some crazy obscure DL thing that only we would know about. Or better yet, he should follow Alec Benjamin.

How does one accidentally follow a site like that?

by Anonymousreply 472Last Tuesday at 5:13 PM

R472 I've done that before, but only because I was looking at a Twitter account and then accidentally clicked the follow button. It happens more on my iPhone, which is really embarrassing, and I unfollow quickly hoping they don't notice. What this does seem to indicate is that Shawn watches gay porn.

by Anonymousreply 473Last Tuesday at 6:58 PM

Seems unlikely though that anyone under the age of 40 would be looking at a Twitter account selling porn DVDs

by Anonymousreply 474Last Tuesday at 7:05 PM

Of course he followed a Harry Styles fan account. Farm boy Mendes wishes he had the urbane sophistication of Styles, who doesn't need to collab with a hoe to get a #1 on the Hot 100.

by Anonymousreply 477Last Tuesday at 9:24 PM

So apparently Lady Gaga and Jason Derulo also followed that account at one point. Sounds like it was probably a regular account then got converted into the gay porn one.

They don't even post porn. Just DVD covers.

by Anonymousreply 478Last Tuesday at 10:12 PM

Yeah it was a regular account that then turned into porn. Happens a lot. Several celebs and internet personalities have had people find out they were following gay porn actors, but it turns out said porn actor used to be a regular account and got followed through one of those following sprees some celebrities/webstars do.

by Anonymousreply 479Last Tuesday at 11:46 PM

R466 He's going to transition. It's just getting more and more obvious. That's why he doesn't identify as gay and get's very very upset when poeple allude to it. Maybe Kurt Geiger can help him to come to terms with it.

R463 How many of the others said they had nightmares because someone somewhere thinks he is gay?

This is not a question of hating the type of singer he represents it's about hating him. And unlike others here in DL, the hate for him is not irrational, people liked him before, he showed he is a jerk and now people dislike him

by Anonymousreply 481Last Wednesday at 2:19 AM

R481 But that isn't what was said. What was said was:

[quote]I can't wait for his career to go away so that real musicians can get in the spotlight again.

So yes, that comment was very much about the type of singer he represents.

by Anonymousreply 482Last Wednesday at 2:58 AM

[Quote] those following sprees some celebrities/webstars do.

They need to stop doing this. Keep your follow lists small, even if it pisses off your fans. You never know the views of the people you're following in one of those follow sprees. It can bite you in the ass, like it did here for Shawn. That is, if R479 is correct and Shawn followed them when they weren't a gay porn account (which I have my doubts about).

by Anonymousreply 483Last Wednesday at 4:35 AM

Well, that's obvious, Shawn wouldn't follow anything gay

So you think Lady Gaga and Jason Derulo also just happened to follow a Twitter account selling gay porn DVDs in Britain?

by Anonymousreply 49013 hours ago

R490 Maybe he/she decided to give up but that's more a wish than a reality. Probably he/she will be back when Shawn releases a new song (with very straight lyrics)

by Anonymousreply 49113 hours ago

R480 I've said this several times in threads about Shawn, and I always get flamed but crazed fans (and I'm sure I will again). Shawn's issues, anxiety, and utter terror at not being perceived as masculine are rooted in gender identity and not sexuality. I believe that his biological sex may be at odds with his gender identity. Most trans people only begin to piece their identities together in their twenties. Shawn absorbs the gossip about his being gay as an attack on his outward masculinity because he struggles to rectify his inward feelings of femininity. Many trans people are also sexually confused because they don't identify as homosexual. For example, a trans woman likely identifies as straight because, in her state of womanhood, she is "naturally" attracted to men. Although it is possible he is sexually attracted to women and which case, he'd be a trans woman who identifies as a lesbian.

As someone who has struggled with my own gender identity. I can see it in Shawn rather clearly. His hair, his clothes, he's just starting to push gender boundaries. I think many gay guys dismiss this argument because they want to claim him as "one of their own." I get that, sorry, it's more complicated than that. I realize being gay is a source of anxiety and repression, and hatred, but what I get from Shawn is someone who is deeply uncomfortable with who they are. He might not even fully know who he is yet either. Most trans people don't begin to transition until their 30s or 40s.

by Anonymousreply 49213 hours ago

R492 Nah, he is a fem gay boy and nothing more than that.

And Shawn doesn't struggle with his masculinity but his sexual orientation, if he have a problem with his masculinity he wouldn't wear his headband, his jewlery and those boots (that are the less masculine thing ever)
