So they're not dating?

Remember the other day when Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin showed up on the Met Gala red carpet together and everyone turned into the IRL version of this Kermit the Frog GIF?

That's Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin AT THE MET GALA. You, rn:

Well Shawn may have just low-key implied that he's not dating the supermodel, so please hold your excitement.

While chatting to W Magazine, Shawn made sure to use the word "friend" when describing his outing with Hailey, and most certainly DIDN'T say they're in a relationship.

"We're really good friends," he said. "It's funny, she's such a pro with this type of stuff. I want it to be amazing for her, so I've been trying for the past 24 hours to be really silly so that she stays on. I'm happy to walk with her—she's amazing."
