Camila Cabello Opens Up About Living With Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: 'I'll Start to Have the Same Thought Over and Over Again'
Camila Cabello graces the cover of Cosmopolitan U.K.’s June issue, and she opens up about her obsessive-compulsive disorder in the publication's candid interview.
“OCD is weird. I laugh about it now,” the “Havana” singer revealed. “Everybody has different ways of handling stress. And, for me, if I get really stressed about something, I’ll start to have the same thought over and over again, and no matter how many times I get to the resolution, I feel like something bad is about to happen if I don’t keep thinking about it.”
Cabello continued to note that things got easier after she was officially diagnosed, clearing her confusion as to why she felt this way and paving the path to coping with the disorder.
“When I found out, and [learned] how to step back from it, it made me feel so much better. I feel so much more in control of it now. To the point where I’m just like, ‘Aha! OK, this is just my OCD.’ I’ll ask my mom a question for the fourth time and she’ll be like, ‘That’s OCD. You’ve got to let it go.’”
On a lighter note, the songstress also discussed her upcoming gigs supporting Taylor Swift on her Reputation stadium tour. “I love her,” she said of the “Look What You Made Me Do” pop star. “We just talk about boys. She loves love, and we love talking about it. It’s fun to just vent and talk and dream.”
