Camila Cabello isn’t letting her time inside stop her from working on her vocals. The My Oh My songstress took to her social media to share a little tidbit from her vocal exercises. In the clip, the singer stands in the shower and belts out the words to Beyoncé’s Listen. It’s no surprise that the 23-year-old recorded the video in the bathroom, as it is known to have the best acoustics and the stem from the shower is known to help the voice.
The Romance singer has also taken to her social media to share another hobby she is picking up, thanks to her boyfriend Shawn Mendes. The singer, who is quarantined with her love in Miami, has shared various videos of her working on her guitar skills.
Although she is not in the studio or on the road, Camila has been performing for a few special causes. The Señorita performers did a special live performance with Global Citizen and another for iHeartRadio.
Camila Cabello is inviting one lucky fan to spend a day on set with her and make an appearance in her next music video as part of the All-In Challenge.
"I'm offering a day on set of my next music video when social distancing is over," she said in a clip shared on social media Saturday evening (May 2). "You will make a cameo in the music video, you will learn choreography with me, I'll teach you all the moves -- well, my choreographer will teach us the moves."
The winner will get a roundtrip domestic flight, a one-night hotel stay and the on-set experience with Cabello.
The opportunity is part of Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin's All-In Challenge, in which celebrities -- including Madonna, Drake, Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes and many more -- are giving away prized possessions or once-in-lifetime experiences to raise funds for those in need of food during the coronavirus pandemic.
Camila Cabello is spending her Saturday snuggling with Shawn Mendes and her pets.
The singer posted an adorable picture on Instagram this weekend (May 23), one arm around Mendes and one around her dog Thunder, who looks as smiley as the happy couple who have been quarantining together.
On Thursday, the "Havana" singer, 23, wrote an emotional essay for WSJ. Magazine in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, in which she reveals her private experiences with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
She begins the essay by admitting the contrast between her Instagram feed and her real life, explaining that while she may appear happy and carefree in her frequent posts, more is going on away from the camera.
"Here’s what there aren’t pictures of from the last year: me crying in the car talking to my mom about how much anxiety and how many symptoms of OCD I was experiencing," wrote Cabello. "My mom and me in a hotel room reading books about OCD because I was desperate for relief. Me experiencing what felt like constant, unwavering, relentless anxiety that made day-to-day life painfully hard."
Cabello said she initially didn't want to tell anyone about having OCD because she was "embarrassed and ashamed" of feeling "at war" with her mind.
"I didn’t want the people who thought I was strong and capable and confident — the people who most believed in me — to find out that I felt weak," she wrote. "The little voice in my head was telling me that if I was honest about my mental health struggle and my internal battles (i.e. being human), people would think there was something wrong with me, or that I wasn’t strong, or that I couldn’t handle things."
Over the weekend, YouTube threw a big livestreamed celebration to honor the graduating class of 2020 — the ones who don't have the distinction of an in-person graduation ceremony thanks to COVID-19 and its associated risks with mass gatherings. Lizzo played flute. Beyoncé and Michelle Obama gave inspirational speeches, as did BTS. Dear Class of 2020 was, in fact, a nice event.
Early on in the program, Bono addressed the graduates with a message about the ongoing anti-racial violence protests that have backdropped the country since the police killing of George Floyd on May 25. "For many Black Americans, Lady Liberty's torch is far from a beacon of hope. It's often a flashlight in the face," he said, introducing his band U2's song "Beautiful Day." But it wasn't U2 that performed it.
Instead, Camila Cabello, Noah Cyrus, Khalid, Tove Lo, and others took hold of the sunny alt-rock staple and gave a subdued yet simmering take with plenty of attention given to its hopeful lyrics.
If the song's whisper-quiet production recalls the sonics of Billie Eilish — who doesn't sing on it — that's because production work was helmed by her brother and collaborator, Finneas. (Bono is a fan.) Here, he lets the voices of Cyrus, Tove, Ty Dolla Sign, Leon Bridges, and more work together over the nearly silent midnight sky.
Cabello joins in with Ben Platt and the rest for the chorus, and Cynthia Erivo pops up to lend the post-chorus its own weight as well. Naturally, U2 descendant Chris Martin handles the bridge and leads the group back to the song's belt-ready conclusion.
Watch this all-star squad deliver the song Bono called "a prayer for where we could go" in the video above.
