Photographed by Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello, Camila Cabello opens up to Marie Claire US about the two sides of personality, trusting her instincts, and for the first time – her relationship with British relationship coach, Matthew Hussey.
The Holiday 2018 cover is styled by Joseph Errico. Hair and makeup by Peter Savic and Allan Avendano, manicurist Tara Finley.
On the two sides of her personality: “Basically, there’s the me that I really am, on the inside, which is the nerdy one—the kind of introverted, shy one—and then there’s the sexy, overly confident one, doing great dance moves and being super sassy.”
On being vulnerable: “I’ve challenged myself to be vulnerable and to not have a script of what you’re going to say.”
On what the success of her debut single, Havana, taught her: You just have to trust yourself. I’m never going to be like, ‘This is a huge song.’ But I really liked it, and that’s what matters.”
On boyfriend, Matthew Hussey: “He’s so similar to me. In person, we’re just weird and silly and stupid together. He makes me the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.”
On rumors she’s will star as Maria in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming West Side Story: “I don’t think so… I know exactly who I am, and I know what I want to do. I’m just not ready to give up that voice for something else right now.” Image courtesy of Marie Claire. (source)
On coping with the negative aspects of fame: “I try to protect myself as much as I can. I don’t have any social media on my phone. I have it on my mom’s phone, so if there’s anything I want to say or if I want to read through what my fans are sending me, I can. It has made a world of difference. If it’s right at your fingertips, there’s a huge chance you’re going to come across something that really hurts your feelings. Huge. And it’s impossible to forget it.”
On controlling her nerves before a performance: “It’s something I have to work on, and I’ve gotten so much better, infinitely better, at it now. You have to remember that, first, it’s not that serious. Second, if I choose to have fun, it’ll make the show a billion times better. I just want to live my best life [laughs]. Twitter slang!… I read The Happiness Advantage, and it tells you that right before you do something that scares you, give your brain a whirlwind of things that make you happy. I think about my dog I have in Miami. I think about my family. I think about people who mean a lot to me.”
On her friendship with Taylor Swift (who she is currently the opening act for): “We met like four years ago at the VMAs. I went up to her and Lorde, and I was like “I just want to say that I really look up to you guys.” We’ve been friends ever since. She’s one of the people who made me want to start songwriting. I love her. She’s been a great friend, very caring.”
On love and relationships: “I just love love! I’ve always been a hopeless romantic. I need to feel that emotion. Finding your person is one of the closest things we have to magic. You just can’t explain it. The same way you can’t explain why a song makes you cry.”
