It’s been less than two months since Camila Cabello announced her exit from girl group Fifth Harmony, but the pop singer has already made her first televised performance as a solo artist.
Cabello performed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week along with her “Bad Things” duet partner and rapper Machine Gun Kelly. The pair gave a high energy performance, with Cabello wearing a black varsity jacket, crop top, wide cropped pants and black platforms.
Following Cabello’s highly publicized exit from Fifth Harmony, MGK supported his duet partner, saying he thinks Camila is a genuine person who was border-lined bullied by her band members.
“Bad Things” is Cabello’s second successful duet that was released during her time with Fifth Harmony, having dropped the iHeartRadio MMVA-winning song “I Know What You Did Last Summer” with Shawn Mendes in 2015.
Cabello and MGK appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon back in December, the same month they released a music video for “Bad Things.”
Teaming up with director Hannah Lux Davis, who worked with Fifth Harmony on “Miss Movin’ On” and their last post-split single “That’s My Girl,” Cabello and MGK are childhood sweethearts who spend their days hanging out in an abandoned factory and their nights stealing and racing cars. Not surprisingly, this type of behavior doesn’t lend itself well to a stable relationship, and the two fight and make up just in time to come face to face with a rooftop ledge and a line of cops with guns pulled on them.
Cabello is reportedly working on her first solo album, which is set to arrive sometime in 2017.
As for Fifth Harmony, the group was scheduled to perform the “Star Spangled Banner” at the NHL All-Star Game this past weekend in LA, tweeting about the event only hours before the puck dropped. Unfortunately, the band ended up cancelling at the last minute due to a member of the group falling ill. We’re surprised that one sick band member would cause the entire group to cancel and hope this isn’t a sign of trouble in the newly reformed foursome.
