Fifth Harmony are opening up about life in the band without Camila Cabello and appear to be throwing just a little shade in the process.
The girl group, made up of Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane Hansen, Ally Brooke Hernandez, and Lauren Jauregui, spoke out about moving on as foursome in the wake of Camila’s departure in December and are admitting that since the now solo star waved bye bye to the band there are no longer any secrets between the girls.
“Let’s just say we’re in a better place now,” Dinah told Billboard when asked about life in the band after Camila, suggesting that the “Crying in the Club” singer kept a lot of secrets from her bandmates.
“There are no secrets in this circle,” she clarified of how things are between the girls now.
Dinah’s fellow bandmates also appeared to agree that life is better in Fifth Harmony without their former fifth member.
Normani Kordei admitted that they did all they could to stay friendly with Cabello after she decided it was time to leave, though it appears that they’re no longer on the best terms.
“I get to sleep at night knowing we did everything in our power as friends, bandmates and human beings [to make it work],” Normani – who recently took third place on the most recent season of Dancing With the Stars – said.
Ally Brooke Hernandez then added of Camila’s departure, “You can’t change people.”
Fifth Harmony’s confessions, and possible latest display of subtle shade towards their former friend, came shortly after Cabello confirmed that she’s no longer on the best terms with the girls when asked how she feels about the band releasing “Down,” their first ever single without her.
But just because they’re not on speaking terms right now, that doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s bad blood between Cabello and her former bandmates.
Cabello admitted that she only wishes the girls the best as they carry on without her despite the drama that followed her departure late last year.
“Obviously, I wish it wouldn’t have been like that because I just, you know, peace,” Camila told 92.3 AMP radio earlier this year when asked about her dramatic departure from the popular girl band, which saw allegations fly between both camps about who was in the wrong when it came to the star’s decision to leave.
“I wish them the best,” she then added, telling the station that she’s actually “super happy” to be a solo artist now and making her own music away from Fifth Harmony.
Camila was a member of Fifth Harmony for almost five years before deciding it was time to leave.
Cabello became a founding member of the the girl group when they were first put together as a band by Simon Cowell after initially auditioning separately for Fox’s now-cancelled talent search The X Factor USA in 2012.
What do you think of Fifth Harmony’s latest confessions about the group now being “in a better place” without Camila Cabello? Were they throwing a little shade at their former bandmate with their comments?
