Fifth Harmony’s Camila: I get 1D’s hiatus decision
Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello understands One Direction’s hiatus decision.
The four-piece band left millions of fans worldwide distraught when they announced earlier this year (15) that they would be taking an extended break from March 2016.
Camila has also found success as part of a group and says that while she was emotional when she heard about One Direction’s plan, she can also see the reasons for it.
“It’s so sad. But, at the same time, I understand where they’re coming from,” Camila told Latina magazine. “They’ve been together for a long time. I didn’t know creatively how difficult it would be to be in a group — especially when it’s manufactured.
“Everybody’s heart is in a different melody. Someone might love a lyric, but someone else hates it. I understand where they’re coming from, because sometimes it gets to a point where they just need to express themselves.”
Fifth Harmony and One Direction had the same starts in life as their members all auditioned for television talent shows as soloists before being put into groups.
During the interview with Latina, Camila also opened up about her relationship status.
She has been linked to singers Austin Mahone and Shawn Mendes, but insists she is just looking for someone who is going to treat her well.
“They end up not knowing how to treat me, and I end up completely devastated,” Camila said of the guys she goes for. “I just need to find someone who is a good person with good values and who is focused.”
Despite her comments, Camila and Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn are close friends. And the pair have been helping each other by passing on their various skills.
“He knew that I was Latina, and he wanted to learn Spanish, because he’s half-Portuguese,” Camila explained. “He was telling me how he wanted to learn another language, because he was young and how amazing it would be that the next time he tour Spain, he knows how to speak the language. I was like, dude, I’ll teach you if you [teach] me how to play guitar. So, he’s teaching me how to play guitar, and I’m teaching him Spanish. He downloaded the Duolingo app, and he’s taking it super seriously. I have a feeling that next year, he’ll be fluent in Spanish.”
