Camila Shocked by “Sh*tty” Responses to “I Know What You Did Last Summer”
Camila Cabello & Shawn Mendes‘ collaborative track, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” was a hot-button topic at the end of last year. It was pretty much all Harmonizers could talk about… but not always for the greatest of reasons.
Diehard fans of the 18-year-old X Factor alum, as well as her 17-year-old duet partner, were all about the duet, singing its praises all of the Internet. But many Fifth Harmony fanatics continue to berate the Camila’s solo move — yes, we know it’s a duet, but she went solo from 5H — saying it was an act of disloyalty. Now, she’s speaking out about the negative responses:
“It’s been so difficult to watch people criticize me and my intentions,” she tells Seventeen. “It’s been sh-tty. They turned me [doing the song] into a conspiracy theory. We literally just wrote a song backstage, and it ended up becoming something awesome. It wasn’t a career move that I carefully planned out.”
