One of pop’s most beloved couples was Camila Cabello with Shawn Mendes, but after two years their relationship ended in November 2021. While Shawn Mendes released the song “It’ll Be Okay” to vent his feelings, the singer was silent during this time.
Now, the singer is back in the media, due to her new song “Bam Bam”. Although she doesn’t like to talk about her personal life, she ended up talking about why she broke up on the Zane Lowe show. Cabello says that everything revolves around the priorities of adult life.

“My priorities fluctuated and my focus changed throughout my life”, Camila said.
“Those years when we were dating, even while I was writing this album, and even now, I think the focus wasn’t really on how I can be a whole person. And besides, my focus wasn’t even on my career.
This album was literally a tool for me to become a more complete person and to acquire intimacy with my collaborators. That was my number one intention.
It wasn’t about how I make the best album and the best music“, she reported.
“And the same thing with those years we were together. My focus was just: How can I live a happy life and be in a healthy relationship? I did a lot of therapy. My focus has really shifted. And even now, while I’m in the publicity mode, honestly, if I’m not having fun, what’s the point of it?“.
“I think as I get older, yes, priorities change. And I feel like it was like that for both of us.
Because we both started so young too, we’re really learning to be healthy adults and that sometimes means not having the number one focus in your career. And that’s okay“.
In the end, Camila Cabello tells how she overcomes difficult times as a relationship end:
“my mom would say, ‘You’re devastated now, and you’re going to be devastated the next time this happens to you.’ Then I’d say, ‘I’ll never go through something like that again.
‘ And life proves you wrong every time.
You never know what’s around the corner. And my mom literally always, over and over again, says this is how life is”, she added.
