We would all love to slide into Shawn Mendes‘ DMs and that’s exactly what James Charles is doing. The makeup mogul revealed to Entertainment Tonight that he and Shawn have been DMing back and forth ever since their Twitter drama last month and we’re not gonna lie, we’re pretty jealous!
For those of you that forgot, the drama all started when James posted some thirsty comments in Shawn’s Instagram Live. And when Shawn abruptly turned off the video, fans were quick to bash James, accusing him of being the reason for Shawn ending the livestream early. Then, things got worse when a Twitter user claimed that they heard the “In My Blood” singer slam James at a secret album listening party.
But Shawn, 20, quickly shut these rumors down when he sent a private message to James and explained that he wasn’t upset at all! “I’ve never said I don’t like you or that you make me uncomfortable,” Shawn wrote in a DM which James posted on Twitter for fans to see.

But that’s not where their relationship ended, as James revealed to ET that they have “DMed back and forth a few times” since. “No flirting, unfortunately for me,” the 19-year-old joked. “He’s super sweet and I’m really thankful that he cleared it up.”
“I looked up to him for a long time since he was huge on Vine. I think he’s literally the cutest,” James continued. “I’m really thankful that he cleared it up, and allowed me to post the screenshot so we could move on and stuff and not have any beef. That would be very ridiculous.”
But as adorable as their friendship is, Shawn isn’t the YouTuber’s dream collab, it’s actually Demi Lovato!
“When she is OK and back in her game, I would die to do a video with her. She’s like, my favorite person in the entire world,” he gushed of the 26-year-old, who took a break from the limelight to check herself into a rehabilitation center three months ago.
“I wish her the best. I hope that she’s doing amazing. I hope she has the best people surrounding her,” he continued, adding that they also “DM back and forth all the time.”
“She replied and said thank you for sending your wishes, and she said that she is doing well,” the makeup artist shared.
James just announced that he’s releasing his first ever eyeshadow palette in collaboration with makeup brand, Morphe which launches on Nov. 13, 2018.
