Camila Cabello Says She Was Inappropriately Sexualized While in Fifth Harmony


The 'Bad Things' hitmaker, who joined the all-girl group at the age of 15, says that she felt uncomfortable with those who tried to sexualize the group.

Camila Cabello has opened up about the not-so-glamorous side of Fifth Harmony following her shocking departure from the group last month. While speaking to Lena Dunham for this week's Lenny Letter podcast, the 19-year-old singer revealed she felt uncomfortable with those who tried to sexualize the all-girl group.

"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," Cabello told Dunham. "Unfortunately, sex sells," the Cuban-born singer continued. "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."

Cabello, who joined Fifth Harmony at the age of 15, said there's "nothing wrong with showing sexuality," but she felt she wasn't ready to flaunt her assets. "You have to grow into yourself," the "Bad Things" hitmaker added. "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."

The now-solo singer ended her interview by giving fans 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."

Meanwhile, the remaining Fifth Harmony members, which include Ally Brooke, 23, Normani Kordei, 20, Dinah Jane, 19, and Lauren Jauregui, 20, would perform at the 2017 People's Choice Awards next Sunday, the group announced on Tuesday, January 10. It will be their first official TV appearance as a quartet.
