"I'd just say congratulations".

Camila Cabello attends 101.3 KDWB's Jingle Ball 2017 Presented by Capital One at Xcel Energy Center on December 4, 2017 in St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN.

"Accomplishments are never the important part, getting to make music and do what I love every day is really the reward, but I know how hard u guys go for me and I really appreciate anybody who's ever believed and supported me on this journey so far", she added, while thanking those who stood by her side.

"I have to make space for the good stuff to happen in my life", she said.

13 dead, several injured in southern California mudslides and heavy rain
The Santa Barbara Fire Department was scrambling in the debris and mudflows to recover survivors of the disaster throughout the day.

With a stage drop heard 'round the world, remaining 5H members Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui began their choreographed performance by tossing a shadowed fifth member (who looked JUST like Camila, btw) off of the stage and into the depths below.

With wailing horns and Cabello's sultry delivery, the Pharrell-produced Havana is unlike anything else in the mainstream Top 40 right now: a slinky, dance-floor-ready ode to the Cuban city in which she was born that further demonstrates the desire for more Latin representation in pop after the runaway successes of Despacito and Mi Gente a year ago.

Remember last year's MTV Video Music Awards? Nope. She's chose to let that moment go to make room for all the awesome things going on in her life. Then the more I got into the year, it just was better. She said she had expressed her desire to write songs for the group as well as for her solo album but was continuously shut down.

"If anyone wants to explore their individuality, it's not right for people to tell you no."
In an era in which xenophobia reigns, Cabello's multiculturalism is its own form of stealthy resistance. Most recently, the singer hung out with her pals Taylor Swift and Ed Sheehan backstage during a Jingle Ball concert and was surprised to see Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were there as well. Camila Cabello was completely shocked that Elton John knew her name. And I love them together but they were super cool. Besides her debut album dropping on Friday (January 12), Camila also received a massive shout-out from Elton John on the latest Beats 1 broadcast with Matt Wilkinson.
