Camila Cabello is an incredible and unique singer who came into the limelight as a member of the girl group, “Fifth Harmony,” that was formed in 2012 on “The X-Factor USA.” This group became a force to be reckoned with in the years that followed until Cabello announced in late 2016 that she wants to fully pursue a solo career.
In no time, the singer and songwriter earned her place as a solo artist in the music industry, and gained popularity in the media. As her fanbase grew, the 24-year-old was subjected to public scrutiny, especially when she was spotted in public wearing revealing clothes.
Soon, this resulted in online trolling and body-shaming, that the singer tried to ignore for as long as she could. But recently, Cabello addressed these comments during a lengthy conversation with Bustle. She mentioned that seeing these unkind comments “messed her up,” however, talking about it seemed to have lessened the insecurities she used to feel about her body type and shape.
In the past, many stars have slammed cruel comments that targeted their bodies, calling it an immature and wrong form of speaking to people that do not even know of the troll’s existence. Like many famous people, Cabello is proof that people can decide how they look, and should not have to change for anyone.
