Camila Cabello Was Uncomfortable Being Sexualized in Fifth Harmony

Camila Cabello is getting real about her time in Fifth Harmony.

The 19-year-old singer opened up about being uncomfortable with people trying to sexualize the girl group, despite their young age.

“Especially with being a girl group, there’s been a lot of times where people have tried to sexualize us to just get more attention,” Camila explained during Lena Dunham‘s podcast.

She continued, “Unfortunately, sex sells. 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 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.”

Camila added, “There’s nothing wrong with showing sexuality. If you have that inside, it’s just an expression of who you are. If you want to share that with people, that’s amazing.”

She left fans with some advice, saying, “I think the thing that I would say to young women is, if you’re not ready for it, put your foot down.”

    So did Paul Newman. Look at the way they zoomed in on his body for certain scenes, it’s very calculating but of course people didn’t care back then and still don’t care now just because he’s a man. My point is everybody gets sexualized in Hollywood.

  • Hugo Romano

    The difference is Camila is relevant where as Paul Newman is as dead as Normani’s grandma lol

    If that’s what a woman chooses to do then good for her, if not then good for her. But that is a choice she is continuing to make on her own in her solo career. She chose to depart from the “band” and make her own creative choice. Unfortunately, sexualizing herself is also a choice she continues to make.
