Hailey Baldwin thinks Shawn Mendes is ''amazing''.

The 21-year-old model has been romantically linked with the chart-topping singer-songwriter over recent months, and while she's denied that she's dating Shawn, the blonde beauty has admitted to being a fan of the Canadian star and his music.

Hailey - who is poised to host the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday night (11.03.18) - said: ''He's amazing, and I think that his music is also amazing.''

Asked how she deals with the speculation surrounding her love life, Hailey told People: ''I just laugh most of it off.

''It's quite funny to me, to be honest. I try to keep that side of my life as private as possible. I don't feel like I have to explain myself to people because it's my life.''

This comes shortly after Hailey rubbished rumours that she is dating Shawn, 19.

The American beauty was believed to have struck up a relationship with the 'Stitches' hitmaker after they were spotted kissing into the early hours after the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) in November.

But when she was asking whether she's in a relationship, Hailey replied: ''Currently I'm not.''

The 'Drop the Mic' host subsequently revealed what she's looking for in her ideal partner, which included a good sense of humour.

She shared: ''I look for somebody who's like funny and can make me laugh. I'm very, very picky, like I am particularly very specific and I know like pretty much immediately if I'm gonna get along with somebody in the capacity of dating or not.

''I mean, I hang out with people obviously and get to know them. It takes me a long time to feel like I can warm up to somebody before I ever even consider dating them.''
