Fifth Harmony are here to stay.
After comments from Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello about eventually breaking up went viral, a rep for the girls says her words were taken out of context.
“Honestly, I think we all do,” she said in Latina magazine when asked if 5H would eventually break up. “We’d be lying if we all said this is a picture- perfect thing, like we all completely agreed on the album track list and what the sound and the music-video treatment would be like, which usually happens in bands who grew up together. But for manufactured bands, it’s harder. The cool part is that we allow one another to do our own thing within this thing. I think it’s healthy because if not, personally, I would go insane.”
She also commented on One Direction’s impending split, saying “It’s so sad. But, at the same time, I understand where they’re coming from. They’ve been together for a long time. I didn’t know creatively how difficult it would be to be in a group — especially when it’s manufactured…it gets to a point where they just need to express themselves.”
Then on Wednesday (Sep. 30), a solo career for Cabello seemed promising after a report surfaced she recorded a duet with her close friend and fellow singer Shawn Mendes. Though Fifth Harmony’s rep doesn’t deny that, they did comment on the breakup hullabaloo.
“All five members of Fifth Harmony are currently in the studio hard at work on their second studio album for Epic Records,” a rep for the band tells Billboard. “They are all extremely excited about releasing a new album together and are not going anywhere.”
The girls also took a moment to post a picture recording in the studio, saying “Positive vibes in the studio. So excited for round 2! We’re not goin nowhere ✌?️#5h2.”
