On Thursday’s Tonight Show, the host pulled up a screenshot of a TikTok video Cabello posted and pointing to a ring on her left ring finger, which makes it appear she’s engaged. As Fallon was explaining, she interrupted him, saying, “No, guys.”
She apologized for cutting him off before Jimmy outright asked, “Did Shawn Mendes ask you to marry him?”
“He has not and I am not engaged,” the 24-year-old Fifth Harmony alum responded. “I swear to god, I don’t know what hand the engagement ring goes on so sometimes I’ll just put it on my ring finger. I mean, I’d actually like you to enlighten me—which hand is the engagement hand? My parents married and they both lost their rings so like literally, my mom couldn’t tell me either. Like she could save me from this but she doesn’t ’cause she doesn’t know either.”
“It’s the left hand, right?” Fallon mused aloud, though he seemed unsure.
“You don’t even know,” Cabello said. She then seemingly joked about how she has “señor” tattooed on her lower back and Mendes has “señorita.”
Elsewhere, Cabello spoke about her forthcoming Amazon film Cinderella, which also stars Idina Menzel, Minnie Driver, Nicholas Galitzine, Billy Porter, and Pierce Brosnan. “I was in this new badass version of this classic fairytale, but it’s told in a totally different way,” Cabello said. “She’s not waiting for a prince to save her—she’s saving herself.”
She also touched on how her dog inspired her new song “Don’t Go Yet”:
