Shots Fired: Camila Cabello Talks About Fifth Harmony’s Controversial 2017 VMA Performance, Calls It “Petty”
Do you all still remember the major shade Fifth Harmony threw at Camila Cabello back in August of 2017? If not, let us remind you. As you all know, Cabello left the group to chase her solo artist dreams. When she left, the other four girls in the group claimed they had no idea Cabello was about to split.
One of their first major performances without Cabello was at the MTV Video Music Awards in August. At the beginning of their performance, there were five girls on stage, but the fifth girl was abruptly yanked from the stage before the music started. It was obviously some major shade directed at Cabello.
And while she didn’t comment on the performance for several months, Cabello has finally opened up. In an interview with The New York Times, she called the performance petty and basically said she ain’t got time for petty sh*t.
“It definitely hurt my feelings. I wasn’t expecting it, I wasn’t prepared for it — especially because at that point I’d moved on from it. I was just like, ‘What? Why?’ I think there’s a healthy amount of space you need to give certain things. I have to make space for the good stuff to happen in my life. I don’t like holding onto the past, especially when it’s stuff that, in my opinion, is just petty.”
You know, I have to agree with her. I mean, I wasn’t there when she left, so maybe she could have clued in the rest of her group more, but she didn’t owe them the rest of her life. She wanted to write her own music, much like Harry Styles, and there is nothing wrong with that.
And it’s clearly working out for her. Her debut solo album, Camila, was released today (Jan 12) and you can check out the most popular track from the album below. This video has close to 450 million views.
