Although fans have looooong speculated about his maybe-maybe-not relationship with 5H babe Camila Cabello, there's also been something else they've speculated about - whether he's actually interested in girls or not.

This rumour has finally came to a head when Shawn babes noticed trolls were attacking the comments section on his YouTube vids, calling him “gay” in a derogatory way - and he wasn’t going to stand for that.He took to Snappy to 1) Set the record straight once and for all about his sexuality 2) Get the trolls to stop their trolling ways.

"I don't usually do this or bring up problems but I... noticed a lot of people were saying I gave them a 'gay vibe'," he said. "First of all, I'm not gay. Second of all, it shouldn't make a difference if I was or if I wasn't. The focus should be on the music and not my sexuality."

He went on say that he doesn't care about being called gay, except when it's being used to put someone down.

"I'm not frustrated because people were saying that I was gay at all, I have no problem with that cause it wouldn't make a difference to me," he said. "I'm frustrated because in this day and age people have the audacity to write online that I'm gay as if it were a bad thing. That's all I really have to say about that."

Damn straight, Shawn. Power to ya.
