Camila Cabello is setting the record straight.
The 21-year-old singer slammed rumors that her friend, Taylor Swift, encouraged her to leave Fifth Harmony in 2016, declaring “absolutely nobody could ever persuade me to do something.”
“If I don’t want to do something the whole world could be telling me and I won’t do it. And if I do, then the whole world could be telling me to not do it and I’ll do it. I’ve always been that way,” she said, explaining that she was bothered by fans blaming Swift for her exiting the band — and the drama that ensued.
“It annoyed me that people said that she was encouraging me, because I know she probably got a lot of flak for that or a lot of negative criticism for that, and that annoys me because I’m really protective over my friends,” she shared. “To be honest with you, she’s never, ever had anything to do with that.”
