Camila Cabello Responds To Being a “Bad Famous Person” On Instagram
Camila Cabello is a divisive celebrity. The former Fifth Harmony singer got famous on The X-Factor U.S., dropped her band, released two solo albums, started dating heartthrob Shawn Mendes — and then a bunch of old Tumblr reblogs and tweets resurfaced that shared racist sentiments and even slurs. Camila has since apologized, saying, “When I was younger, I used language that I’m deeply ashamed of and will regret forever. I was uneducated and ignorant and once I became aware of the history and the weight and the true meaning behind this horrible and hurtful language, I was deeply embarrassed I ever used it.”
The “Havana” singer has been trying to regain momentum since then, and hasn’t been helped by her former bandmate Normani saying that Camila, “took days … to acknowledge what [Normani] was dealing with online.” She continued that, “[It took] years for her to take responsibility for the offensive tweets that recently resurfaced.”
Camila has been spotted roaming a Florida neighborhood during COVID-19 with her “Treat You Better” boyfriend and the pair even did an Instagram Live performance for iHeart Radio’s Living Room Concert for America. But recently, the songstress took to her own Instagram Stories to joke about hearing she was “a bad famous person.”
While mock-crying, Camila said, “I sung on Instagram Live and I’m a bad famous person, but I just want to say I love you. I love you guys and I miss you and I’m thinking of you.” It appears that Camila is responding to people who think doing a “Living Room concert” isn’t enough for rich and famous people to do to combat the Coronavirus pandemic.

They raised 8 mil dollars. Sounds pretty good huh? Artists involved have a combined net worth of 1.838 billion dollars. They spend more than 8 million dollars on cars and travel in a year. They could have personally written checks far exceeding this. Not as impressive now is it?

Watching this FOX Presents the iHeart Living Room Concert for America and all I have to say is… Damn you @williambriere you've turned me into a cynic. Every celebrity that asks for money, I’m now thinking “well how much money did you donate?”
