Camila Cabello Says Fifth Harmony Didn’t Allow Her ‘Maximum Expression’

After presenting at the 59th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12), Camila Cabello‘s pursuit for her solo career continues with her new feature for Seventeen magazine, where she opens up (once again) about about her departure from Fifth Harmony.

“Fifth Harmony wasn’t the maximum expression of me individually,” Cabello admitted in the feature. “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.”

Still, the 19-year-old doesn’t have any ill will towards her former 5H sisters. “I’ll continue to wish them all the best, and I’m happy they are continuing their journey as Fifth Harmony,” she said. “I’m also looking forward to hearing new music from the group and their solo endeavors.”

Elsewhere in the feature, Cabello opened up about her struggle with social media, admitting that she’s been trying to remove herself from the entire world for about two years now. “There has always been negative stuff on there. 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,” she explained. “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.”
