iHeart Living Room Concert: Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's 'My Oh My' leaves viewers fuming
Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes got together to sing 'My Oh My' in the former's home in Miami for the iHeartMedia Coronavirus benefit concert. And while the performance is meant to be for a good cause, it doesn't seem to be striking the right chord with viewers.
On Sunday night, the couple live-streamed themselves performing a stripped-down version of Cabello's song 'My Oh My' originally featuring rapper DaBaby, with Cabello on vocals and Mendes on guitar. The couple's rendition of the song aired as part of the iHeart 'Living Room Concert' show, which was hosted by Elton John and also featured performances from Alicia Keys, the Backstreet Boys, Billie Eilish, and many others.
All the performances were filmed at the respective artists' homes as they each remain socially distanced and in quarantine amid the coronavirus pandemic. The concert is raising awareness and funds to help support first-responders and medical workers on the frontlines of the fight against the virus. Before the couple kicked off their duet, Mendes shouted-out to the "brave nurses and doctors out there working so hard every day," adding "We’re thinking about you so much. Thank you for everything you’re doing."
Unfortunately, despite their well-meaning attempt to help out, not many were happy seeing the couple together.
The two are currently quarantined together at Cabella's home with her family, with inside sources revealing, "Her family loves him and are always happy to have him around. There’s no telling how long this [quarantine] will last but they are making the most of this time out from their hectic schedules and are happy to be together 24/7. They are totally in love and the more time they spend together, the better it gets. This is the kind of thing that can test a lot of couples but for them it’s only making them stronger." But for many, this is just another notch in the long string of appearances the two have made together despite many not wanting to see any more of the couple.
Some were confused that the two were together, asking "Shawn & camilla live together?" One Twitter user chastised the couple for not socially distancing, stating "What part of STAY IN YOUR MFING HOUSES do Camilla and Shawn NOT UNDERSTAND. Literally y’all are millionaires. There’s plenty of things to entertain you in you mansions but NOOOO. A bunch of dumb*sses."
Some users had more specific issues with their lack of care in the time of a pandemic, stating "my dads pressed about shawn and camilla not having socks on in this living room concert thing"
Many users tweeted their distaste for the relationship altogether, with one stating "Shawn Mendes and camilla as a couple disgust me." Others echoed the sentiment, being particularly bothered by Cabello's part in the relationship, stating "i used to be a shawn mendes stan but then he started dating camilla and i honest to god think shes ruining him i hate it here END THE PR CONTRACT NEOWWWW." Another user questioned whether the relationship was real at all, asking "am i the only one that doesn’t like camilla and thinks the whole shawn relationship is fake?
Others, however, were less interested in the couple and more in the music. And unfortunately, that wasn't up to the mark either. One user tweeted a clip of their performance adding, "this cannot be real shawn is hot but camilla PLEASE. STOP," while another said "camilla and shawn made a vid and her singing wasn’t it"
iHeartRadio shared a clip of the performance via their Instagram page. All proceeds raised from the concert will be donated to the charity organizations Feeding America and First Responders Children’s Foundation.
