If you felt a Gen-Z kind of noise last night, it was probably the aftershock of Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello announcing that they broke up. In a joint statement on Instagram, the two disclosed that they are no longer together.

“Hey guys, we decided to end our romantic relationship, but our love for each other is stronger than ever,” read the statement posted to each of their Instagram stories. “We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We are very grateful for your support from the beginning and beyond.” A moment of silence for teenagers everywhere.

The singers have been together for just over two years, celebrating their anniversary with matching Instagram posts in July. Rumors that the two were together began after their “Señorita” collaboration in 2019. Since then, the two have given us a smorgasbord of PDAs, paparazzi shots of their regular quarantine walks, and whatever this was.

What’s next for these two? Maybe a couple of smashing songs, maybe a whole album. And, according to their statement, a continuation of their friendship? Speaking of which … if you, like me, ever wondered who actually writes celebrity break-ins, according to Refinery29, a few different people. As you might expect, for couples with the level of fame like Cabello and Mendes, a break announcement is usually written by the couple with some help from the PR team and advertisers. So, if you’ve been wondering why celebrity break-up ads always sound so similar, that’s why.

Anyway, our condolences to the fans of Shawn and Camilla everywhere. No more giving Cher.
