Yesterday saw teen heartthrob, social media star, and legitimately amazing popstar Shawn Mendes celebrate his 18th birthday!

The Canadian born singer celebrated this huge milestone with a live show, and was surprised on stage by one of his best friends. Obviously, the whole thing was uploaded to Twitter and it’s really sweet. He’s so excited to see his friend!

Shawn recently released an emotional video for his new single “Treat You Better,” which is taken from his upcoming second album, Illuminate, which is due for release on September 23.

Not wanting to miss out on all the birthday action (and because it was World Cat Day yesterday, too), Taylor Swift also recorded a cute AF message for Shawn.

The clip was uploaded to Taylor’s Instagram story, and in it she can be wearing a cat sweater (which we’re totally gonna need to find).

This is so sweet. Also, isn’t this, like, the most Taylor Swift thing ever? The dancing, the outfit, the hair; all peak Taylor and we love it!

Taylor and Shawn are no strangers to each other. Shawn supported Taylor on her “1989 World Tour,” and last year Tay brought Shawn out on stage to sing happy birthday to him.


Happy 18th birthday Shawn!
