Here's How Tall Shawn Mendes Really Is

Singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes went from covering songs on social media to becoming one of the biggest pop stars in the world seemingly overnight. He began his career by filming videos of himself singing and playing guitar, which he would then upload to Vine before the platform went extinct in 2016 (via Rolling Stone). His talented covers garnered attention from thousands of users, but Mendes' life really began to change when Andrew Gertler from Island Records stumbled across his videos.

Gertler reached out to the then 15-year-old Mendes about the possibility of signing with Island Records, and Mendes released his self-titled debut EP the following year. Since then, Mendes' music has grown in popularity. His song "Stitches" reached the top of the charts in several countries, as did his single "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back," per Official Charts. Mendes has been nominated for Grammys, VMAs, and Billboard Music Awards (via IMDb). He's walked the red carpet at the famous Met Gala numerous times, and his current relationship with fellow singer Camila Cabello frequently lands Mendes at the top of nearly every gossip site.

For someone so young, the Canadian-born star has already accomplished significant milestones in his career. His glow-up from adorable teen idol to bonafide hottie is just the icing on the cake.

If you've ever stared longingly at Shawn Mendes and wondered how tall he really is, you're not alone. We scoured the internet to find the answer to that burning question ourselves, and we're more than happy to share it with you here.

Shawn Mendes is over six feet tall

In addition to being an insanely talented singer-songwriter, Shawn Mendes is also devastatingly handsome. Some people really have it all! The Toronto native has blossomed over the last few years as he's grown and matured both as an artist and as a human being. Mendes is often included on the best-dressed lists of every event he attends, and GQ devoted an entire style file to his unique sense of fashion. Whether he's on the red carpet or he's taking his dog for a walk, Mendes always looks great.

The fact that Mendes is six feet, two inches tall probably helps in terms of the selection process required to choose the right outfit for his public appearances (via The Sun). With those long legs and toned muscles, we're sure Mendes has zero problems when it comes to figuring out what he wants to wear to all the award shows and events he's invited to. 

Plus, the height difference between Mendes and his longtime girlfriend Camila Cabello is so adorable. For reference, Cabello is approximately five feet, two inches tall (via Seventeen). That means Mendes is nearly a foot taller than his beau!
