Normani is speaking out about fellow Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello‘s past racist remarks in old Tumblr posts and tweets, which she apologized for at the end of 2019.

“I want to be very clear about what I’m going to say on this uncomfortable subject and figured it would be best to write out my thoughts to avoid being misconstrued, as I have been in the past. I struggled with talking about this because I didn’t want it to be a part of my narrative, but I am a black woman, who is a part of an entire generation that has a similar story,” she said in an e-mail statement to the magazine.

“I face senseless attacks daily, as does the rest of my community. This represents a day in the life for us. I have been tolerating discrimination far before I could even comprehend what exactly was happening. Direct and subliminal hatred has been geared towards me for many years solely because of the color of my skin. It would be dishonest if I said that this particular scenario didn’t hurt me. It was devastating that this came from a place that was supposed to be a safe haven and a sisterhood, because I knew that if the tables were turned I would defend each of them in a single heartbeat. It took days for her to acknowledge what I was dealing with online and then years for her to take responsibility for the offensive tweets that recently resurfaced. Whether or not it was her intention, this made me feel like I was second to the relationship that she had with her fans.”

“I don’t want to say that this situation leaves me hopeless because I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity for personal growth. I really hope that an important lesson was learned in this. I hope there is genuine understanding about why this was absolutely unacceptable. I have spoken what is in my heart and pray this is transparent enough that I never have to speak on it again. To my brown men and women, we are like no other. Our power lies within our culture. We are descendants of an endless line of strong and resilient kings and queens. We have been and will continue to win in all that we do simply because of who we are. We deserve to be celebrated, I deserve to be celebrated and I’m just getting started,” she went on to say.

Normani Gets Candid About Being in Fifth Harmony: 'I Don't Feel Like Anyone Saw the Truest Version of Me'

Normani is on the cover of The Fader‘s Now issue, out now.

Here’s what the 23-year-old “Motivation” singer had to say…

On how being a member of Fifth Harmony restricted her as an artist: “I don’t feel like while I was in the group anyone saw the truest version of me. I wasn’t allowed the opportunity to showcase that…I’m not able to go in in the way that I want to [because] of what the group was.”

On feeling alienated following an incident that resulted in racist, hateful comments from fans: “[The girls] offered support, but I’m not sure they could be there in the way that I needed because it’s not their experience…they don’t have to face on a day-to-day basis the things that I have to. I definitely learned after that that I had to walk a different way. I can’t look like everybody else.”

On the personal significance of her forthcoming album: “I’m doing this as therapy for me…to be able to get to know myself in a way that hasn’t even been revealed yet, to be vulnerable in a way that I haven’t been before. I want this to be like a diary of all women — to reflect and showcase the many layers of us. We’re not one-dimensional.”

Lauren Jauregui on Sexuality: 'It Doesn't Define Who I Am'

Lauren Jauregui looks radiant on the new cover of EUPHORIA. Magazine!

Here’s what the 22-year-old “More Than That” singer had to share with the mag:

On the departure from the pop ethos of Fifth Harmony to create her own alternative R&B sound: “I’m leaning more towards live instrumentation and my vocals are very raw so I’m really focusing on my lyricism. That’s where I feel like my strong suit is. I’m pretty vocal about the fact that [Fifth Harmony] wasn’t necessarily a representation of my personal taste in music or my expression in music. I think I speak for a lot of us when I say that…”

On how sexuality doesn’t be someone’s defining factor: “For me, it is who I am, but it doesn’t define who I am, the same way no one’s sexuality defines who they are. It’s awesome to be proud of the love you’re able to express in this lifetime. I would prefer if most of the headlines weren’t about [my sexuality], but I understand the sensationalization of sex in our culture so I don’t really care too much at the same time. I get it, people like to talk about who people are f–king.”

On what power player in Congress is an inspiration to her: “[Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] is a major idol for me right now. You know when your mom walks in and is like, ‘Okay. This is how it’s gonna get done. I’ve seen you struggle long enough – I’m just gonna fix this s–t.’ She’s insanely human and she actually takes her position in public office seriously.”

Ally Brooke Reveals She Wasn't Allowed to Release a Feature While in Fifth Harmony

Ally Brooke is opening up about creative struggles she faced as a member of Fifth Harmony.

During an appearance on Snapchat’s This Is How I Made It on Saturday (February 2), the 25-year-old “Low Key” singer revealed that she was blocked from releasing a song she recorded with another artist – even though other members of the girl group were releasing features.

“We were all doing features. Everybody was experimenting and kinda spreading their wings…I found this one song that I really liked. I was a fan of the song and I loved working with the artist,” she explained.

“But then I was told within the label that I couldn’t release it. That person who had to approve it, he called me and he literally was just like ‘You’re not doing it, you’re not releasing this feature. I’m not gonna let it happen.’”

“On top of that, the tone that it was told to me was very disheartening,” she added.

“The most important thing was that everybody at the time were allowed to do features. This is not fair to be, one, spoken to this way, but also told no because of a personal opinion. It was just, to me, not right. So in that moment, I felt alone and just felt like ‘I don’t understand why this is happening to me.’”
