Camila learned English when she first moved to Florida by watching TV and cartoons. She once shared on Instagram: "On my first day of school, they asked me if I knew how to speak English. I don't know if I misunderstood or was too embarrassed, but I said 'Yea, I speak English.' So I never actually took an ELL class, but I picked up English really easily."

In fact, she even once dressed up as the wizard for Halloween a few years ago.

She shared the scandalous tale during a round of Truth or Dare with ANDPOP.

She prefers to go by her middle name, Camila, but her full name is Karla Camila Cabello Estrabao.

The celebration was packed full of food from one of Camila's favorite restaurants, Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles. “We were texting and she asked me what I was going to do for my birthday, and at the time I wasn't doing anything, I was just like eating with my family," she told MTV News. "And she was like, 'Oh, well, you can't do nothing for your birthday. Come over.'"

And we think we just might have to steal her Instagram caption: "When life gives you lemons, drink coconut water."

She proudly roots for Brazil's national football team.

She admitted that after leaving her phone in the car during a night out with Taylor Swift after the 2016 Grammys — and getting home at 6 a.m. — her parents weren't too happy with her.

Camila has frequently claimed that she has two left feet. We respectfully disagree.

She shared a "Vibes” playlist she listens to before she goes to sleep. It includes "Earned It" by The Weeknd, "All the Time" by Jeremih, and more. You can listen to the whole playlist here.

She admits that the first time she ever wore heels was for the X Factor Boot Camp when she was 15.

Her great-grandfather Proculo fought with Emiliano Zapata during the Mexican Revolution in the early 1900s.

Camila has been working on getting better at playing the guitar. She admitted to Billboard's Pop Shop podcast that learning to play has given her calluses — but she's secretly proud of them!

Her favorite book is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Bonus fun fact: she doesn't like to read love stories.

Instead of having a quinceañera, Cabello's mom, Sinuhe, says that Camila asked to audition for X Factor. We sure are glad that she did, because that gave us Fifth Harmony.
