publish date: 2017-01-10
Days before her exit from Fifth Harmony was announced, Camila Cabello spoke with Lena Dunham for her Lenny newsletter and Women of the Hour podcast, discussing keeping one's sanity in the age of social media, her political engagement and expressing sexuality as a teenage pop star.
In the interview, Cabello credited her mother for helping her keep her sanity, keeping things in perspective as a Cuban immigrant with her story acting as a reminder of what's most important in life. As well, steering clear from social media has provided further assistance in keeping her grounded.
"The best decision that I've taken in my career thus far has been this year I've just stayed away from social media," Cabello said. "I don't go on it, and I just keep myself focused on getting better and growing as an artist and finding different ways to grow as a person. It's just kept me grounded, and I don't have 1,000 people thinking that they didn't like my shoes."
