Camila Cabello Plans Special VMAs After Party With Fans: 'I Wanna Thank You Guys'
Camila Cabello's nominated for five awards at this year's MTV Video Music Awards -- artist of the year, as well as song, video, best choreography and best pop for "Havana" -- and she's bringing several lucky fans along for the celebration.
Friday afternoon (Aug. 17), the singer shared a note on Twitter announcing #milasafterparty: an exclusive post-VMAs shindig where 15 handpicked fans will get to chill with Cabello.
"So the VMAs are coming up soon and that night we're nominated for five awards!!!!!! Even if we lose all of them I wanted to do something special that night to celebrate the past year and a half of nerves, adventure, stress, and absolute magic," she wrote in a note to her followers. "I wanna thank you guys for your amazing loyalty and support and dedication this year and the years before -- this isn't about the award or the VMAs, it's about what it represents -- all the memories and euphoric experiences we've made since my first songs have come out. Thank you for loving the music, the shows, and most of all for caring about me so much as a person and asking me if I'm drinking enough water or sleeping enough (the answer is probably gonna be no till I retire)."
"The first part of this celebratory week was the tour diary and the remix," she said, "and now here's the second. There's tons of after parties after the award show, buuuut I can't think of any other people I'd rather celebrate with after the show than you guys. I'm gonna pick 15 of you to have our own lil after party, there will be fooooood!!!!"
Cabello added to use the hashtag #milasafterparty to help her choose the lucky ones she'll be inviting to the hangout session. She also clarified that this event was meant for those local to New York City, as this year's VMAs will be taking place at Radio City Music Hall on Monday (Aug. 20) -- but she hopes to do "more special things" for her international fans in the future.
