Shawn Mendes kissed Camila Cabello’s foot for V-Day: fine or nope?

Did you think Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes would last this long? I did not. I mean, I was crazy about them when they first started up, and I loved to see the very obvious PR moves around their relationship. I thought they were half-PR couple and half-real couple and that in the end, their breakup would feature diss tracks and dance-offs. But they’re still happening. They’ve been together since the summer of 2019, they spent much of the pandemic together, locked down in LA, and they celebrated Valentine’s Day together, with Shawn posting the above Instagram yesterday.

There’s a lot of angst online about the fact that Shawn is kissing Camila’s foot, specifically her big toe. I mean, my feet are jacked (I walk A LOT) so I don’t want a beautiful young man like Shawn kissing my jacked big toe, but Camila seems fine with it. People do have a thing about feet, and there are strong opinions all around. Like, I prefer that people do not touch my feet at all (again, they’re jacked), but I’m totally fine with foot fetishes being represented in popular culture. I’m not disgusted by it or anything. Lots of men love women’s feet. Tons of men want to kiss feet… and, you know, other stuff. Quentin Tarantino is not an outlier. Shawn Mendes is not an outlier. And even if they were, people should let their freak flags fly as long the feet belong to consenting adults! (I knew a guy who was really into ears and I still think about him sometimes, and I hope he’s well.)

    They are just… exhausting.

    • Nerdista says:

      It’s just a kiss? He’s not like going to town on it. Y’all have too much hate for this lil guy.

  2. Coolitude says:

    They can do what they Want but why show that to the world. It can stay private

  3. Myriam says:

    I don’t know any of Shawn Mendes songs. And the only things I know about Camila is her Havana song and that she is a f***ing RACIST that needs to disappear from the face of the planet. And yet, despite their PR relationship or whatever it is they have going on being thrown in my face for months, they’re still boring. That’s it

  4. newmenow says:

    Agreed. Consenting adults, whatever. Please leave us out of it.

    Why is everything public with people? I hate it.
    I half expect my neighbor to post herself taking out her rubbish. no thanks.

  5. Riola says:

    He probably has a foot fetish. I’ve broken up with guys for having a foot fetish because I don’t want anyone’s mouth or other parts on my feet, or kiss a guy who has had his mouth on my feet (or anyone else’s feet). But if she doesn’t mind then whatever.

    But don’t show us pictures of it, it’s not okay to involve unconsenting people in your kink.

    • Grant says:

      Oh please, “unconsenting people?” No one is kissing your toe or forcing you to kiss someone’s toe. It’s an innocuous picture; keep on scrolling.

  6. Teresa says:

    It just seems unnecessary. Her issues aside I have been with a foot guy before and while it is not something I expected to want, it felt pretty great once. Meh?

  7. Tiffany says:

    Eh. It was a peck on the toe.

    It’s not like he was out here giving it tongue.

  8. Faye G says:

    It’s not the worst I’ve seen but definitely TMI. I’m not a fan of either of them, but the press seems to have moved on too quickly from the fact that Camila is a racist POS. I am embarrassed to have the same first name as her.

  9. Willow says:

    He just giving her big toe a quick smooch. His lips are closed (unless I missed something). I don’t see the big deal? I wouldn’t do it, but it doesn’t seem that unsanitary. What is super gross is the people who let their dogs ‘kiss’ them or lick them, especially on their face. Because I know all the gross things my dogs eat and they do not brush their teeth!

    Shawn Mendes is sweet & harmless. I know almost nothing about him but I *CACKLE* laugh when Benito Skinner impersonates him. I can’t take it! Skinner is going to be super famous someday. I adore him!

  11. Laalaa says:

    You guys are overreacting.
    They feel comfortable, and he kisses her wherever he wants because they are that close.
    It doesn’t immediately mean he has a foot fetish. But it’s completely fine if he does.

    I was always very weirded out by that particular fetish, and then I met someone I truly love and he has a foot fetish so … he made me love my feet in a new way :-D

  12. Grant says:

    I’d rather kiss his toes (gay man here and I am LOVING his long-haired quarantine look, LOL) but you do you, Shawn!

  13. MangoAngelesque says:

    I honestly don’t get why this is considered “TMI” or anything in the “why show that??” category. If he were kissing her thumb, people wouldn’t think he had some weird hand or finger fetish, and hands are generally a LOT dirtier than feet, unless you’ve been tromping barefoot through actual dirt. You transmit actual diseases with unwashed hands…even touching your own face is discouraged because of how gross hands get just by existing.

    Dude is sitting on the ground and grabbed her foot for a silly picture. I know nothing about these two outside of what us written about them on sites like this, but this really seems like a totally innocuous thing, even for them.
