Camila Cabello: ‘It’s all love’ with Fifth Harmony
Camila Cabello says "it’s all love" between her and Fifth Harmony.
The 19-year-old singer parted ways with her former band mates – Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui – last month in favour of pursuing a solo career, but has insisted there’s no bad blood between them.
Asked about what it has been like going solo during an appearance on UK radio station BBC Radio 1 on Tuesday (31.01.17), Camila said: "Obviously being here is incredible. It was incredible then, it’s going to be incredible now."
"It’s all love, it’s all music."
The news comes after Camila – who recently teamed up with rapper Machine Gun Kelly to release the track ‘Bad Things’ in her first solo venture – felt her former band were too sexualised and admitted she felt frustrated with efforts to make the ‘Work From Home’ hitmakers more raunchy in order to sell more records.
She said previously: "Especially with being a girl group, there’s been a lot of times where people have tried to sexualise us to just get more attention.
"Unfortunately, sex sells."
And Camila has advised other females who aren’t "ready" to become sexualised to "put your foot down", which she has admitted she has had to do.
She said: "There’s definitely been times where there’s stuff that I have not been comfortable with and I’ve had to put my foot down.
"I think the thing that I would say to young women is, if you’re not ready for it, put your foot down."
Camila believes being a musician and taking to stages to perform across the globe, as well as producing tracks with "sexual undertones", has been "tricky" for her.
She explained: "I feel like it’s been tricky because we’ve had to grow into ourselves while being in front of the world and while making songs that did have a lot of sexual undertones."
