Camila Cabello did something very brave, and let her fans know that she had to leave Fifth Harmony’s St. Louis concert early because of her anxiety. The singer apologized for ducking out and worrying everyone!
“Hi Missouri, sorry I couldn’t finish the set last night,” Camila wrote on Snapchat. “Was having too much anxiety and couldn’t finish it. I love u. I’m truly sorry.” That’s okay, Camila! The Fifth Harmony singer reportedly left the stage after the band finished their hit “Bo$$”.
One of her fellow band members explained her absence by telling the audience that she was experiencing a “wardrobe malfunction” (best excuse there is!). But fans were majorly concerned when Camila failed to re-join the band for the rest of the show, including when they sang their hit “Work From Home.” She wasn’t with the other four girls when they gave their final bows and said goodbye to the St. Louis audience, either. Clearly, something was up.
Camila hinted that something was wrong prior to the concert, when she tweeted “just wanna sleep for 3 days.” Being on tour has to be extremely stressful, especially when you’re suffering from anxiety. We can’t imagine having to perform in front of a massive crowd every night. Thankfully, Fifth Harmony is set to have a two week break after their September 11 show; she’ll have plenty of time to rest and recuperate!
Camila’s not the only pop star to speak out about anxiety lately. Selena Gomez decided to focus on her mental and physical health, including depression and complications from lupus, to the point where she’s postponing the rest of her Revival tour. Good for her! Hopefully Camila takes a page from her book and takes care of herself when she needs to.
