With a new single booming at radio (‘Don’t Go Yet’), a September 3-due movie charging to screens via Amazon Prime (‘Cinderella’), a forthcoming stint on ‘The Voice,’ and a new album nearing completion (‘Familia’), expect to see much of Camila Cabello over the coming weeks in support of the endeavors.
Having already hit the ground running with recent interviews in print, radio, and TV via iHeartRadio, Entertainment Tonight, Apple Music, and many others over the last few weeks alone, the GRAMMY nominee was most recently spotted acting as the cover girl of the latest edition of ‘Bustle.’
When not rocking Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, and Calvin Klein inside the mag’s pages (under the lens of famed photographer Emman Montalvan), Cabello was dropping quotes about her friend Taylor Swift, battling body shamers, and so much more.
See highlights below:
CABELLO ON THE DIFFICULTY OF MAINTAINING FRIENDSHIPS:
“I’ve been [working] since I was 15. I’ve been traveling so much, and it’s been really hard for me to water the soil for friendships,” the 24-year-old singer told the outlet. “It’s hard for me to get close to people.”
CABELLO ON WHY HER MOM IS HER BEST FRIEND:
“[My mom and I] would always, after work, go to dinner. Go get sushi together, go for a walk,” Cabello recalls. “It was always me and my mom. Probably to the extreme. Because I never had any friends.”
CABELLO ON TAYLOR SWIFT:
“Taylor has always been so kind and supportive and also goes out of her way to give you artist advice,” Cabello gushed. “[She’s] really about making friendships and relationships the most important thing. She is so brave at watering those seeds of friendships and relationships.”
Continuing, Camila revealed:
“[Taylor] always answers my texts and she’s so busy. I don’t even answer texts because I’m just worse at it. It takes intention to be like, ‘Let me write all my friends back.’”
CAMILA ON WHY HER RELATIONSHIP WITH SHAWN MENDES WORKS:
“I probably have a nurturing attitude because I also like being nurtured. I’m lucky that my partner is the same way,” Cabello said of their relationship. “There’s a lot of sweetness and tenderness. I think we’re both sensitive. I’m really lucky to be able to surround myself with tenderness; it’s really important to me.”
CAMILA ON BATTLING BODY SHAMERS:
“Being at war with your body is so last season,” she said addressing her recent viral Tik Tok response to body shamers. “I actually feel my body insecurities went down after I posted that because I was like, ‘No matter what pictures come out or what people say, I’m now controlling the narrative.’”
CAMILA ON WORKING WITH BILLY PORTER IN ‘CINDERELLA’:
“I was so intimidated by [Billy] because I was like, ‘You’re so talented, you have such a big soul, a big energy about you,’” Cabello says. “I told him that. And he was so vulnerable, so sweet, and just a very real person. By the end of it, we really connected. He was like, ‘I want to be your [Fab G] in real life.’”
CAMILA ON WANTING TO GO TO COLLEGE:
“I love information. I feel I would have had so much fun in college. Maybe I would have also been crushed under homework, but I do love learning. I love reading… I’d love to go to NYU in person and study some cool things,” she revealed.
