For the first time, Camila Cabello - whose first solo album drops January 12 - has explained in detail why she finally made a decision to quit her former group, Fifth Harmony, in December 2016.
"I was just curious and I wanted to learn and I saw all these people around me making music, writing songs and being so free", Cabello told the paper. "I wasn't expecting it, I wasn't prepared for it-especially because at that point I'd moved on from it".
"I think there's a healthy amount of space you need to give certain things", she explained.
The brunette beauty has been busy carving out a solo career, with Fifth Harmony announcing her departure from the group last December.
"It became clear that it was not possible to do solo stuff and be in the group at the same time", she added. "I don't like holding onto the past".
He said: "Camila Cabello just had the huge hit with "Havana", I think she's going to have an unbelievable year because she's just so gorgeous and so much fun and she's got a great voice and she has great attitude".
While she asked to assist in songwriting for Fifth Harmony, Cabello's request was declined. "It makes me want to get up and dance".
Fifth Harmony performs during the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards at The Forum on August 27, 2017 in Inglewood, California.
With a stage drop heard 'round the world, remaining 5H members Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui began their choreographed performance by tossing a shadowed fifth member (who looked JUST like Camila, btw) off of the stage and into the depths below. "And obviously, Blake Lively is a queen". And on her debut "Camila" (Epic), she delivers them with the confidence and power of an artist with far more than Cabello's 20 years under her belt. I love your voice. The single is also the longest song to top the pop charts since Taylor Swift's smash hit "I Knew You Were Trouble".
