‘Don’t put that in the bottle’

Camila Cabello continues to keep it real when it comes to her mental health.

In a new Rolling Stone interview, the ‘Psychofreak’ singer opened up about how the utter honesty on her new album Family has led her down a path of mental healing.

“It just made me so much more open and vulnerable in my friendships and then in my performances and then in my interviews,” the 25-year-old singer said. “It had this knock-on effect on every other area of ​​my life.”

Cabello, who is Latina, said open discussion of mental health can still be seen as “weak” in some cultures, which is another reason it’s become so vocal.

“After these conversations – especially in the Latin American community – I want to talk more about it in Spanish and also with this community,” she continued. “Even when I talk about it with my family, it’s so different.”

Cabello has previously spoken of being in “the worst mental state ever” before the coronavirus pandemic, but has found a new groove thanks to therapy, the album and a newfound confidence following her split from fellow pop star Shawn Mendes, 23 .

“There are varying degrees to which people struggle with mental health, but I think whether it’s life-changing or life-saving when you bottle this stuff and pretend it’s eating away at your health,” she told The Rock magazine .

The former Fifth Harmony star – who was a musical guest on Saturday Night Live last month – announced on Monday that she will officiate the opening ceremony of the 2022 EUFA Champions League final in Paris on May 28.
