Seventeen is an American magazine for teenagers. The magazine's reader base is 10-to-21-year-old females. It began as a publication geared towards inspiring teen girls to become model workers and citizens.
Months after her split from Fifth Harmony, Camila Cabello is clearing the air and proclaiming the start of her solo career in the March/April issue of Seventeen. In her interview, the 19-year-old singer opened up about her former bandmates, upcoming music, and romantic relationships . . . or lack thereof.
Though her departure from Fifth Harmony was rocky, Camila still spoke highly of the group when she said, "I'll continue to wish them all the best, and I'm happy they are continuing their journey as Fifth Harmony." Camila then insinuated that each member will likely go solo as well. "I'm also looking forward to hearing new music from the group and their solo endeavors," she said.
As for her, she's already begun working on new music that will be more reflective of her individual personality. "Fifth Harmony wasn't the maximum expression of me individually," she said, adding, "My fans are really going to know me from the music I'm writing. My goal is to be brave and open up my soul."
Camila is, however, weary about sharing her entire life — especially on social media. In an earlier interview for Lena Dunham's Women of the Hour, Camila spoke about being too sensitive for social media. She reiterated that sentiment again when she said, "Even if you read 100 messages of love, the hurtful one is what you remember. But I did see a lot of love and support from my fans. Honestly, I didn't expect it. I was so emotional at that point, that when I saw some really encouraging things people were saying, I burst into an ugly cry."
