In a recent interview with SiriusXM, Shawn opened up about what it’s like to fight with Camila, revealing that they “get in the worst little arguments” but are skilled at calling each other out when necessary. “We have a really honest and open relationship, but…we definitely fight,” the singer said. “I think the longer the relationship goes, it’s like the easier it seems to be to fight. So, yeah, it’s definitely not that holding hands all the time, but we’re really good with each other. It never gets bad. It’s always like a little fight.”
Shawn also touched upon the importance of admitting you’re wrong even when it’s hard to do. “All of it, it takes all my might in the entire world, but I have to admit that I’m wrong, but it takes everything,” he said. “My face probably looks like tight and red, but I say I’m wrong.”
This isn’t the first time #Shawmila has opened up about the realities of their relationship, which is going on two years strong this summer. In an Instagram post last year, Camila shared that nothing about their romance is “as simple as it looks in pictures,” adding that “Sometimes, it’s messy and uncomfortable and ugly.”
She explained that it’s important to pull back the curtain, because social media only tells one side of the story. “I’m all for being vulnerable on social media because I think only the neatness and perfection of life is shown on here; and that can make us all feel extra lonely and weird!” she wrote at the time. “So raise your glass to the messiness and weirdness of being human and the miracle. And the easiness. And the instinct. And the relentless force that is love.” We’ll certainly cheers to that!
