A slew of other Fifth Harmony fans joined the conversation after Jauregui was seen crying during the band’s Phoenix concert, trending the hashtag #WeLoveYouLauren and sending sweet messages to the girlband star to show their love following the seriously emotional onstage moment.
“Lauren is always there for us and we’ll always be here for her #WeLoveYouLauren” Fifth Harmony fan @anxietylmj tweeted out after Jauregui broke down in tears, while @5HBrasil wrote, “Your smile is so precious @LaurenJauregui #WeLoveYouLauren.”
Lauren took to social media on August 9 to address the footage of her crying onstage, telling Fifth Harmony’s dedicated fans that the lyrics of the song, which is featured on the band’s latest album 7/27, got to her during the performance.
“Thank you guys so much for the love and concern,” Jauregui told Fifth Harmony fans on Twitter just one day after falling to her knees and crying during the band’s performance of “No Way.”
“I’m feeling a lot better today!” Lauren continued, noting that the “lyrics just made me extra emotional yesterday.”
DELUXE EDITION • Track twelve… No Way • It’s insane how much we have been through with “No Way”. It actually was recorded about 2 years ago when we were starting to record the first album, Reflection. The second we got this song I remember listening to it over and over and over and over again with Victoria Monét singing the demo on it (who has one of the most beautiful voices ever) and I just connected so intensely with the lyrics. They were so raw and honest about a relationship that was just toxic but from everyone else's perspective and about how they know that they're made for each other and to love each other and to heal each other..but how that love is tricky to keep and have and hold. I just love the way the song takes you on an emotional journey and how you feel the pain of these people's indecision to love or let go. We were able to emote in a way we hadn't ever done before in our music and I think that was why it is my favorite because I felt at the time and every time I hear it now the emotion behind the words; and I hadn't felt that connected to any of the songs in that way before. I love the vulnerability and the reality of the situation. -Lauren
Notably, “No Way” is one of Fifth Harmony’s more emotional songs, as Lauren alluded to in an Instagram post uploaded to Fifth Harmony’s official account back in April, in which she told fans that the track is actually her favorite from 7/27.
Lauren Jauregui candidly spoke out about the song when debuting the 7/27 track list on social media earlier this year, telling fans that she “just connected so intensely with the lyrics” of “No Way” the very first time she heard it, which is likely why she cried earlier this week.
“[The lyrics] were so raw and honest about a relationship that was just toxic but from everyone else’s perspective and about how they know that they’re made for each other and to love each other and to heal each other,” the Fifth Harmony star said.
“We were able to emote in a way we hadn’t ever done before in our music,” Lauren continued about the Fifth Harmony track just months before crying during the performance. “Every time I hear it now the emotion behind the words; and I hadn’t felt that connected to any of the songs in that way before. I love the vulnerability and the reality of the situation.”
Jauregui’s tear-filled moment is just the latest emotional drama to hit Fifth Harmony in recent days.
It was just days before concertgoers captured video of Jauregui crying that Lauren’s bandmate, Camila Cabello, left the band’s concert early, telling fans that she was suffering from crippling anxiety that left her unable to continue with the concert.
“Hi Missouri, sorry I couldn’t finish the set last night,” Camila told Fifth Harmony fans in a Snapchat video on September 3. “Was having too much anxiety and couldn’t finish it… I’m truly sorry.”
But Camila leaving the concert early wasn’t the only drama to surround the girls during their Missouri “7/27 Tour” stop.
During the same concert, Fifth Harmony fans also accused Cabello of pushing Jauregui out of the way as she took center stage.
Video from the show appeared to show Camila grazing Lauren’s shoulder during Fifth Harmony’s performance at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre on September 2, but while their interaction seemed pretty innocent, fans were quick to accuse the singer of pushing her bandmate out the way.
Fifth Harmony fan @salutecamila took to Twitter to share footage of the incident, after which some Fifth Harmony fans claimed Cabello actually shoved Lauren during the performance.
