Camila Cabello commands attention in elegant sheer dress

Camila Cabello felt frozen out from Fifth Harmony after writing her own songs

"I just love that attitude, there's a vibrance here that makes me feel good".

Cabello said her choice to perform "I Know What You Did Last Summer" as a solo act with Shawn Mendes paired with creative difference finally compelled her to up and leave.

"In an interview with The New York Times, published on Thursday, January 11, the "Havana" songstress openly shared her feelings about her former bandmates" public jab, in which a fifth woman was abruptly yanked from the stage before the now-quartet started singing at the award show.

"It was this boy that I was obsessed with my whole time in elementary school", she said.

"I have to make space for the good stuff to happen in my life", Camila continued.

The other members Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui and Normani Kordei weren't pleased about their bandmate's solo efforts.

Yup, the most identifiable part of her smash hit immediately occurred to her during a session with Frank Dukes, who said that as soon as she heard the riffs and salsa influences, she thought of her birthplace.

Though it may seem like eons ago for fans, Camila Cabello's official departure from Fifth Harmony only went down just over a year ago. "I don't like holding onto the past".

She told The NYT that she ultimately made a decision to go solo because Fifth Harmony wouldn't let her work on solo music while still being part of the group.

"If anyone wants to explore their individuality, it's not right for people to tell you no."

Even though the two have yet to come face to face, the "Diamonds" artist admitted that if they met, he wouldn't be opposed to helping Cabello with her career.

The "Havana" hitmaker's self-titled LP is due out in just a couple of days time and she admits she's incredibly nervous for the release. "And obviously, Blake Lively is a queen. But I just wasn't expecting for them to be there and I just got kind of weird, I was like, 'Why are you so weird, stop being weird'".

Camila Cabello has been hard at work preparing for the release of her debut album...and it's certainly been paying off.
