This is the first time Cabello has spoken about her departure from Fifth Harmony in depth and their VMA performance.
If I spoke to her I would just say, 'Congratulations, you make me happy. The four remaining performers appeared on stage to sing their new single, "Angel", and suddenly a fifth woman appearing in silhouette was yanked off the stage. "I have to make space for the good stuff to happen in my life". Camila gushed in a cute video while announcing the performance on her socials.
Oooooof. Camila usually avoids anything that could even remotely be contrued as talking smack about her former bandmates, so insinuating that Fifth Harmony's diss was petty is probably the most pointed diss we'll ever get from the "Havana" singer.
She explained: "I think that the good thing about social media and the internet is that I feel like it makes the world smaller and it just kind of breaks down barriers between languages, between people, between cultures, and I think that might have something to do with that".
Sadly, Cabello said she would have like to stay with the band but it became impossible because she made a decision to follow her passion.
"It became clear that it was not possible to do solo stuff and be in the group at the same time", she told the paper, adding, "if anyone wants to explore their individuality, it's not right for people to tell you no". And on her debut "Camila" (Epic), she delivers them with the confidence and power of an artist with far more than Cabello's 20 years under her belt. "If you pull from all the different little parts of yourself, nobody can replicate that". "But I just wasn't expecting for them to be there and I just got kind of weird, I was like, 'Why are you so weird, stop being weird'".
In a recent interview, rock legend Elton John raved about his love for Camila's music, saying, "I think she's gonna have an fantastic year, because she's just so gorgeous and so much fun and she's got a great voice and she's got an incredible attitude.I just love her".
