It’s okay if you feel sorry for Shawn Mendes after hearing about a lie detector test he took during an interview with Vanity Fair (who would agree to that anyway?)
The singer was asked some pretty awkward questions and the test called him out after he was asked about Taylor Swift and his approval of her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.
Shawn was shown a photo of Joe and asked if he approved, he answered, “I’ve never personally met Joe, but he looks like a sweet guy.”
The lie detector blurted out, “You’re not telling the truth. You’re being deceptive.” Shawn then tried to rephrase his answer saying, “Yeah, I mean, he’s kind of got a little bit of a villain look about him. “He looks like a nice guy but, like, he at any movement could turn into a villain, you know?”
Shawn tried to give even more of an explanation saying, “He’s got really blue eyes and I struggle with eyes that blue, you know? Like I find it easier to trust brown eyes.” Shawn then paused and swallowed hard saying, “talked way too much about him.”
