7 Music Stars Who Found Love With Canadians


Canadians make the best lovers because we’re kind and generous – and because we spend a lot of time finding ways to keep warm.

Just ask Selena Gomez, who dated Justin Bieber, then The Weeknd, and then Justin Bieber again.

It’s not surprising that music stars from all over the world have fallen for Canadians.

Here’s a look at some of them:

Camila Cabello

The Cuban-born pop star officially went loco for Ontario's Shawn Mendes in 2019 – and their duet "Señorita" became a No. 1 hit. The couple's PDAs tapered off after his world tour was over and her album Romance came out, but only the most cynical among us would question their love.

Carrie Underwood

The country singer met Peterborough, Ont.-born Mike Fisher at her concert in Ottawa in 2008 — and they were engaged a year later. The Oklahoma native tied the knot with Fisher in July 2010 and built a home west of Ottawa during his stint as a Senators player. While they’re now based in Nashville, the couple often return to Ontario to spend time with Fisher’s family.

Elton John
