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‚Äôs been a lot of times where people have tried to sexualize us to just get more attention,‚ÄĚ Camila explained during Lena Dunham‘s podcast.
She continued, “Unfortunately, sex sells. There‚Äôs definitely been times where there‚Äôs stuff that I have not been comfortable with and I‚Äôve had to put my foot down…I feel like it‚Äôs been tricky because we‚Äôve 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‚Äôs nothing wrong with showing sexuality. If you have that inside, it‚Äôs just an expression of who you are. If you want to share that with people, that‚Äôs amazing.”
She left fans with some advice, saying, “I think the thing that I would say to young women is, if you‚Äôre not ready for it, put your foot down.”
