The 19-year-old singer recently revealed that she was uncomfortable when people would try to sexualize the group even though they were so young.
“Especially with being a girl group, there’s been a lot of times where people have tried to sexualize us to just get more attention,” Camila explained during Lena Dunham‘s podcast.
She continued, “Unfortunately, sex sells. There’s definitely been times where there’s stuff that I have not been comfortable with and I’ve had to put my foot down…I feel like it’s been tricky because we’ve had to grow into ourselves while being in front of the world and while making songs that did have a lot of sexual undertones.”
Camila added, “There’s nothing wrong with showing sexuality. If you have that inside, it’s just an expression of who you are. If you want to share that with people, that’s amazing.”
She left fans with some advice, saying, “I think the thing that I would say to young women is, if you’re not ready for it, put your foot down.”
