Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello Calls Out Justin Bieber, Exposes Slut-Shaming In Music Industry

Fifth Harmony has been making quite a lot of headlines lately, much of the time for positive reasons. In a recent interview with Cosmo For Latinas, the girl group’s Camilia Cabello made good use of Fifth Harmony’s publicity to make a point about the existing double standards between men and women. As Billboard noted, Cabello and fellow bandmate Lauren Jaruegui commented on Justin Bieber‘s recent nude pic, which was posted publicly and greatly admired by his fans.

“I’m sorry, excuse me. Justin Bieber takes his pants off, posts a pic of it, and it’s like, ‘OMG, he’s so hot.’ What. Is. That?! How is this reality?”

In their interview, Camilla and Lauren cited the fact that they, as women, face shaming and name-calling from the public when wearing risque outfits, yet highlighted that Bieber got praise for his butt pic due to being male. Fifth Harmony also stuck up for their fellow female performers and asserted the right for women to wear whatever they wanted.

As the Latin Post discovered, Jauregui also provided reasoning for the way Fifth Harmony chooses to dress themselves and noted that they shouldn’t be shamed for said choice. As the site also mentioned, Lauren asserted that the group’s members dress according to ways that suit their body type, and they have every right to embrace their sexuality. No word yet on if Bieber has responded to the scorching attack. Fifth Harmony, however, did choose to dress more conservatively on the cover of Cosmopolitan For Latinas.

This isn’t the first time Fifth Harmony’s members have been shamed by the public. Several months ago, Jauregui was called a “sl**t” by One Direction fans who caught her riding in the same cab as One Direction member Louis Tomlinson. Nothing actually happened between Tomlinson and his Fifth Harmony friend, but the non-existent blanks were unfortunately filled in by the public.

Perhaps surprisingly, Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei told Cosmopolitan that most of the slut-shaming commentary comes from females. Fifth Harmony has always been a group that stands up for women’s rights, so it’s interesting that they would be picked on most by their female fans. Normani added that there have been vile comments on the group’s YouTube channel as well. What is your take on the Fifth Harmony interview? Was Camilla right to call out the injustice done to female celebrities?
