Published: Tuesday 14th Mar 2017 by Sam


Cop a gander of Camila Cabello!

The former Fifth Harmony star is charging on full speed with her solo career – the latest stop of which sees her cover Latina magazine.

Cabello, who is of Cuban heritage, stuns in her photo spread and makes a number of notable remarks in her accompanying interview.

Indeed, the 20-year-old ‘Bad Things’ belter opens up about her reasons for leaving 5H, her solo proposition, and more.

Peep pics and quotes below…

Latina: Why did you decide to leave Fifth Harmony?
Camila: I started in the group when I was just 15. I needed to follow my heart and my artistic vision. I’m grateful for everything we had in Fifth Harmony and for [this new] opportunity. I am less focused on success and more on doing my best and pursuing my artistic vision to the fullest, wherever that takes me. Of course I also hope people will enjoy my music!

Tell us about your evolution as a solo singer-songwriter.
I’d been writing and creating songs the whole time that I was in Fifth Harmony.

It’s been a really important creative outlet for me. I feel like I found my voice in the process. Music has helped me become selfaware and know who I am as a person.

You’ve talked publicly about your struggle with anxiety. When did you realize it was an issue for you?
Late 2015 and the beginning of 2016. I had terrible OCD [obsessive-compulsive disorder], and it was just totally out of control. I would wake up with a super-accelerated heartbeat and really negative, intrusive,
compulsive thoughts. I was so inside my head, and I didn’t know what was happening. I totally understand now, being in it, why there shouldn’t be such a stigma on mental illness, because it’s a pretty common
thing for people. But you can get help. If you’re dedicated to making it better, you can — because I’m in a much better place now. I started reading books about it and it really helped a lot when I understood [the
illness], and that [the thoughts I was having] weren’t real. Sometimes you have to remind yourself to slow down and take care of yourself.

Who helped you through it?
My mom is my best friend, I can tell her anything. Because she’s gone through so much in her life, she knows what’s important and what’s not. I feel like in the industry, there are beautiful, amazing things. But the only thing that I love about this is making music. Everything else can be very empty and very draining, soulless. My mom’s always been good about leading me to what’s real. Going back to Miami and being in bed with my family all cuddled up and watching La Familia Peluche… Going into the studio and spilling my heart…

Speaking of music, you’re friends with Taylor Swift, is she also a mentor?
Our friendship has never been about career or anything professional. I tell her about boys and cry to her about boys. She’ll give me advice like, “No, do not text him back.” But I’m so excited for the day that I get to play her my music because she is seriously one of the reasons I started songwriting. I feel like we have something really cool where we can just be honest with each other, and we can just be girls, talking about stupid crushes. It’s the best.

      I still do not see it..

      • HALF AMAZIN March 14, 2017

        I don’t either. She looks dead in the eyes like Ariana Grande. I can appreciate these publicist crafted answers though.

  2. Ciara March 14, 2017

    Honestly no space for her as a solo artists ! Ariadne Grande, Tinashe, Zara laserson, toni ox, Taylor swift, Megah, and all the other she will get just get lost… I don’t think she is going to offer anything significantly different from the market…. Oh well.. Good luck

    I kind of like her new music. It sounds nothing like the fifth harmony music . Her song with cashmere cat is good in my opinion. She probably wants to take the Latin route but couldn’t do that in fifth harmony. However I’m still exited about Lauren and normani.

    I’ll pass.

    I think she left the group early but it is nothing wrong with following your heart. I wish her the best of luck in anything she is trying to pursue.

    • David thomas March 14, 2017
