“We tried our best to be ourselves, [but] we were also adolescents, so you have to think about who you were at that age and being thrown in front of cameras,” Jauregui said about the beginnings of Fifth Harmony when she was only 16. “When you’re really disconnected from who you are and you’re ashamed of it, you can write and tell a story, but you can never really tell your story.”
She also struck an encouraging tone as she discussed her aim to change her fans’ perspectives on social issues. “It’s so crazy how little people know about what they can do, about their rights, what they’re putting into their bodies and everything that’s going on globally,” she says. “I believe that art is the core of what starts revolutions.”
