Camila Cabello: "Spreading kindness is what everybody should do"
Camila Cabello has revealed that when it came to creating her album, she spent less time on social media to avoid the negative affects it can sometimes have as she didn't want it to affect her writing process.
She said there’s so many things going on in the world that deserve our attention. You can spread love whether your platform is just the sidewalk that you’re walking on or on social media, but the latter can be tricky as it can affect your mood depending on what you see. The young star said:
“It’s just crazy to me when people who have huge platforms just use it to fight on Twitter and spread negativity.
"I think spreading kindness and spreading love is what everybody should do."
She told Vogue: "When I look at what people are saying [on social media], it might feel addictive in the moment, but I always feel horrible after. It leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth. Sometimes, I have bad dreams at night. It affects you subconsciously even when you’re not aware of it, so I try not to do it. When I was making the album, I wasn’t on Twitter.
"The music would’ve come out differently, because everything is changed by context, whether it’s in the day or the night, who are your friends at the time, relationships at the time, what are you listening too, whether you’re looking at what people are saying about you on the internet or not.
“It’s so scary to do something new and different. I think it’s the scariest decision not necesarily just in my position but for everybody is to be able to go against the grain and go against what’s safe and decide to do something that’s the risky option.
“It makes me so sad when I see people who just stay in one place their whole lives and they’re sad or bored or uninspired or unhappy and they don’t do anything about it because they’re afraid.
“Persistence. I think it’s setting your mind to something and not stopping until you get it."
