Shawn Mendes paid a virtual visit to “Capital Breakfast”, the morning show of Britain’s Capital FM radio.
In a sneaky bid to get Mendes to spill some secrets, the show’s hosts enlisted the Canadian pop sensation to play a game titled “I Wonder If It’s True”.
One of the hosts asked Mendes if it was true that he’d turned down a collaboration with Justin Bieber last month.
“Is this you trying to get me to confirm that I have a collaboration with Justin Bieber?” asked Mendes, who was onto their scheme immediately.
“I didn’t… last month,” he added.
“If I turned one down, that would be insane, considering he’s been one of my favourite artists since I was, like, nine years old,” Mendes continued.
“I cannot confirm nor deny,” said Mendes, who was then asked about recently being spotted with Bieber.
“In the last six months we’ve definitely become a lot closer,” he explained. “It’s really cool to have him as a mentor in a lot of ways just to kind of talk through stuff with, because there’s not a lot of people who do this kind of stuff. But anyway, back to your question because I’m now sidetracking on purpose.”
