Former Fifth Harmony star Camila Cabello is dishing on her upcoming solo music and getting boy advice from Taylor Swift in a new cover story with Seventeen.
In the singer’s first solo magazine cover since leaving the chart-topping group, the 19-year-old star admitted that the popular quintet was never “the maximum expression of me individually,” and that she is excited to “be brave and open my soul,” with her new solo sounds.
That may mean opening up about heartache and unrequited love -- a frequent theme in her music.
“Even though I’m 19, I’ve literally never had a long-term relationship,” Cabello shared. “So when I show people my songs, they’re like, ‘Who’s this about? I’ve never seen you with a boy, ever.’ I make all of these fantasies in my head. There’s this constant theme of unrequited love and me loving people from afar.”
So who does Cabello turn to when she needs advice on matters of the heart?
“Taylor is always the person that I go to for boy advice,” said the Cuban-born performer. “The reason we became friends was purely because we think the same way about a lot of things: We’re both really sensitive and emotional when it comes to love. We love love, and we love writing songs about love.”
When it comes to love songs, one of Swift’s other besties -- Ed Sheeran -- is also a pro at penning ballads, and Cabello named the redheaded Brit as her dream collaborator.
“He’s incredible at putting love, emotion, and feeling into words,” she gushed. “I would love to see him go into a room and watch how he makes his magic. He always talks about how he loves making songs from the heart, and that’s something that I’ve pushed myself to do in my songwriting process, too.”
