Camila Cabello moved by Dwyane Wade expressing pride in her work

Written by on April 20, 2024

Camila Cabello was moved when sports star Dwyane Wade expressed pride in her career.

The Havana singer, who was born in Cuba and raised in Miami, Florida, admitted to Paper magazine that it feels more meaningful to her when she is recognised by celebrities from her hometown.

“For me because of this weird rootlessness of starting out in Hollywood at a young age, I always feel like, It would feel really good to be claimed by the place that I’m from. I met Dwyane Wade at the Oscars,” she said, referring to the Miami Heat basketball star. “And I was like, ‘Dwyane Wade, I’m from Miami.’ And he said, ‘I know, I’m so proud of you.'”

Pretending to sob, Camila added, “It felt so good. We all have this deeply visceral human need to belong.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the 27-year-old explained that she recorded her upcoming album in Miami and was inspired by the city’s musical eclecticism.

“Miami’s a city where you drive with your windows down and hear Afrobeat, and Reggaeton, and Hip Hop and pop. It’s such a melting pot of music and of culture,” she shared.

The former Fifth Harmony star also confessed that she didn’t want to play it safe sonically, something she had sometimes done in the past.

“I hated when I made stuff or put out stuff that felt like it wasn’t weird enough. (I would say to myself), ‘God, it’s a good song, but I don’t know if this feels true to me,'” Camila explained.

“This is the most confident I’ve been. I’ve learned from all of those times where I’ve been like, Okay, maybe I listened to that person and I wavered a little bit. I tried to see what didn’t feel good. And I didn’t do it again.”
