Camila Cabello is a Cuban-born singer songwriter who rose to fame as one part of the pop act Fifth Harmony. The girl band was formed back in 2012 on the X Factor USA. However, the girls disbanded in 2018 and continued their journey solo.
Camila Cabello experimented as a solo artist while she was a part of the band. Her debut collaboration as a solo artist was for "I Know What You Did Last Summer" with Shawn Mendes, which soon became the talk of the town and she later broke the charts with ‘Bad Things’ as she collaborated with American music artist Machine Gun Kelly, landing the 4th spot on UK Billboard Hot 100.
The 24-year-old left Fifth Harmony in 2016 and released her debut solo single ‘Crying in the Club’. Later, her debut studio album ‘Camila’ made it to the top of Billboard 200 chart. With ‘Havana’ as its lead single, Camila made news in the US and UK. In fact, Cabello's 2019 duet with Mendes, ‘Señorita’, became her second single to top the Billboard Hot 100 and had her fans gushing about their on-screen chemistry.
She confirmed her relationship with Shawn and the two dated for a period of approximately two years between 2019 and 2021. The couple enjoyed a low key relationship and announced their breakup by putting up identical stories on their Instagram accounts on November 18.
The singer-songwriter-actor has lately been in the news for being body shamed. In an interview with Bustle, she opened up about receiving so much criticism for her body when a few of her photographs in Bikini went viral on social media. "This hurts so bad," Cabello said. "The whole day I felt insecure. I felt like it was changing how I was thinking about food and eating… really messing me up."
In a now-viral TikTok video, Camila responded to the trolls with a message of self-love. "I actually felt so liberated when I posted that," she said of the clip. "After that, I went to the airport and so many women were coming up to me like, 'I saw that TikTok and it resonated with me so much.' I actually feel my body insecurities went down after I posted that because I was like, 'No matter what pictures come out or what people say, I'm now controlling the narrative.'"
