Camila Cabello’s backpacking dream

March 14, 2017 GMT

Camila Cabello wants to go backpacking around Europe.

The former Fifth Harmony star would love to explore more of the world and meet a “Spanish boy in Spain and fall in love”.

She said: “I get why people are interested in my love life, but I don’t want to give people that piece of me because it is the most important part. Here’s my dream life: I want to make songs and have incredible experiences with people.

“I don’t want to be locked up in a hotel room and just do press and red carpets. That’s not the kind of life I want to live. I want to make music, but I also want to go on road trips with friends. I want to go backpacking around Europe. I want to meet a Spanish boy in Spain and fall in love.”

And if the 20-year-old singer ever had any trouble with her beau, she’d no doubt turn to Taylor Swift as she admits the pair spend most of their time talking about boys and “stupid crushes”.


She added: “Our friendship has never been about career or anything professional. I tell her about boys and cry to her about boys. She’ll give me advice like, ‘No, do not text him back.’

“But I’m so excited for the day that I get to play her my music because she is seriously one of the reasons I started songwriting. I feel like we have something really cool where we can just be honest with each other, and we can just be girls, talking about stupid crushes. It’s the best.”

Meanwhile, the ‘Bad Things’ hitmaker also opened up about why she decided to quit Fifth Harmony.

She told the March/April issue of Latina magazine: “I started in the group when I was just 15. I needed to follow my heart and my artistic vision. I’m grateful for everything we had in Fifth Harmony and for [this new] opportunity.

“I am less focused on success and more on doing my best and pursuing my artistic vision to the fullest, wherever that takes me. Of course, I also hope people will enjoy my music!”
