CAMILA CABELLO REVEALS IF SHE'LL BE SINGING FIFTH HARMONY HITS ON TOUR: Camila Cabello has yet to announce a solo tour in support of her No. 1 album Camila, but when she does, can fans expect to hear her bring back some hits she had with Fifth Harmony? Speaking to NME, Camila answers that question succinctly: "No... no, definitely not." When NME pointed out that some solo artists re-invent their group's old hits, she replied, "I honestly have never even thought about that. I don't know, I feel like this is such a new...chapter of me." Camila also reveals that she feels a greater responsibility to be a role model now that she's a solo artist. "I think it has a lot to do with the fact I have a sister who's 10," she explains. "Even if I swear in real life, I don't like swearing in songs. Because she listens to my songs with all her friends and I don't want them to not be able to sing along. I definitely always keep that audience in my mind." When asked what she wants people to think of when they think of when they hear the name "Camila Cabello," the chart-topping singer says, "Maybe a mix of honest and exciting. And also nice! I definitely want people to think I'm nice."
