London, Apr 8 (PTI) Singer Camila Cabello says she was very shy as a kid.
The former Fifth Harmony member says despite her terrible nerves she managed to gather the courage to audition for “The X Factor USA”but her parents were not sure if she would be able to go through with it because she was so crippled with anxiety, reported Glamour magazine.
“I was very introverted as a kid. But I started bringing my CDs to the YMCA after school; I’d ask for the boom box and go play my music in the corner and people would come over. And I created a little YouTube channel doing covers – I must have posted 50.
“Even though I’d be like, ‘Oh my God, this is so bad,’ music was the thing I was passionate enough about to get over being shy. After seeing a One Direction ‘tips on auditioning for The X Factor (USA)’ video, I asked Mom if I could audition,” Cabello says.
The 20-year-old singer’s mother Sinuhe praised her daughter for always “confronting her fears”.
“I have never met someone who can confront her fears in the way she does. I can tell she’s terrified, but she doesn’t stop. She always asks me, ‘Do you think everybody knows (I’m scared)?’ And I’m like, ‘No, nobody can tell.'”
