Camila Cabello has explained why interviews made her change the name of her debut solo album.

The former Fifth Harmony member released ‘Camila‘ last month (January 12), but the record was originally titled ‘The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving.’.

Asked at what point she decided she needed to change the title, she replied: “I think it was, like, two weeks into doing interviews.”

She continued: “Seriously. I was like, ‘This is making me sad. The album was about getting over this situation, but I’m never going to get over this situation if I’m constantly being asked about it’. And also, I’m a super private person so I couldn’t even give an interesting answer to who it was about. I just kept being super vague, and that’s not fun for anybody.”

Cabello explained that she began imagining doing an album, tour and more interviews based on that, saying: “By the time I was talking about it in interviews, what had caused me pain wasn’t even relevant any more. I had moved on with with my life, so I needed my music to move on too.”

Last month, Cabello revealed she was “obsessed” with The 1975 and wants to work with the group.

“Oh my god, I want to work with them so bad,” Cabello exclaimed during an interview on Beats 1. “I’m on a 1975 rollercoaster right now. I can’t stop listening to them.”

“I think I’ve met him before because I’ve been to two 1975 concerts because I was obsessed with them,” she added, before instructing host Zane Lowe to “text him, let’s make this happen.”
