Camila Cabello on Fifth Harmony’s VMAs Diss: “It Definitely Hurt My Feelings”
Though the pop star, who decided to leave the band a year ago, claimed she left on good terms, the girl group seemingly dissed her during their 2017 MTV Video Music Awards performance.
Right before their performance began a woman went flying off the stage, leaving just the four remaining members — Dinah Jane, Normani Kordei, Ally Brooke, and Lauren Jauregui.
Many fans believed it symbolized Camila’s departure from the band.
Needless to say, the moment deeply hurt the 20-year-old’s feelings.
“It definitely hurt my feelings,” she told The New York Times as her eyes welled up with tears.
“I wasn’t expecting it, I wasn’t prepared for it — especially because at that point I’d moved on from it.”
She continued, “I was just like, ‘What? Why?’”
Despite the diss, the “Havana” singer is focused on the positive things in her life.
“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.”
In fact, her first solo album — Camilia — was released today, January 12.
“I feel like the best way to come up with something new and different is just to be the you-est you possible,” she shared.
“If you pull from all the different little parts of yourself, nobody can replicate that.”
Meanwhile, following the VMAs drama, Fifth Harmony explained their performance wasn’t meant to insult Camila.
“We get asked all the time if we’re getting a fifth member and we wanted to show the world in an artistic way that hey, the four of us are Fifth Harmony,” Ally said on Good Morning America.
“And we’re stronger and better than we’ve ever been.”
