Camila Cabello Admits She Almost Kissed Nick Jonas on New Year’s Eve

While Taylor Swift is more concerned about what happens on New Year’s Day than New Year’s Eve, kissing someone as the ball drops is still a big deal to many people, including Camila Cabello. The 20-year-old appeared on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve to ring in 2018 and it seems that the magic of being in Time’s Square at the start of the new year almost overwhelmed her into making a move on none other than Nick Jonas, who also performed that night.

“It’s kind of bittersweet because when you go into the ball drop thing, they don’t let you bring your family up with you,” the “Havana” singer told Jimmy Fallon while appearing on the Tonight Show.

But just because she was technically up there alone doesn’t mean the thought of getting a little ~close~ (pun intended, obviously) with the 25-year-old singer never crossed her mind.

“The ball was dropping, and I was like, ‘Am I gonna kiss Nick Jonas?'” she continued. “Because it’s like the New Year’s thing.”

The former Fifth Harmony singer “chickened out” before she got to plant one on Nick, but isn’t too upset because she got a little lovin’ from Mariah Carey.

“Mariah Carey did blow me a kiss, so that was good,” she continued.

Cam performed “Havana” at the NYE bash, which is off her debut self-titled album. Camila hit no. 1 on iTunes in 100 countries, which is a HUGE feat for any artist, let alone one who only just put out her first body of work.
