Camila Cabello Reacts to Fifth Harmony's MTV VMAs Jab

Camila Cabello Reacts to Fifth Harmony's MTV VMAs Jab

(Photo: NBC | Getty Images ) Camila Cabello perfoms her single, "Never Be The Same" on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on January 10th. Most recently, the singer hung out with her pals Taylor Swift and Ed Sheehan backstage during a Jingle Ball concert and was surprised to see Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were there as well.

Did we use the word "fluke" for the massive success of "Havana"?

Fifth Harmony's performance of "Down" and "Angel" at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards was probably the group's most memorable on-stage experience of all time, not because it was particularly groundbreaking or anything like that, but because it was shady AF. Well, yes and no.

But Cabello - whose debut solo album, Camila, will be released on Friday, Jan. 12 - certainly didn't take the performance that way. Her pitched-up warbling on the otherwise lovely All These Years equates to what singing in a fish bowl might sound like, while a first-rate single might be somewhere in the overproduced Never Be the Same, if only we could decode the frequently indecipherable lyrics. Isn't it the prima donna who breaks off from the pack? Nope. She's made a decision to let that moment go to make room for all the awesome things going on in her life. There's just one problem with her place in this template, and it's that, on the new album, she actually sounds like kind of a sweetheart - or at least doesn't come off as a diva, in either the belter or the queen-bee sense of the word.

If you don't recall, the gig started with the four ladies of 5H standing on a platform next to a fake fifth member (used to represent Camila Cabello, who left the group in December 2016). Maybe the meek will inherit the earth, or at least the post-split mantle, after all.

Amusing thing, though. As she worked on the album a year ago, buoyed by the success of her collaborations "Bad Things" with Machine Gun Kelly and then "Havana" with Young Thug, the questions didn't seem important any more.

Poor Camila, she was clearly cut off guard.

Pop star Camila Cabello has proved her label bosses wrong by turning Havana into a chart smash - because they didn't think the song had hit potential.
