Fifth Harmony is changing the girl group game. The X Factor alums are proving they're worth it with a hit debut album, Reflection; three platinum singles; and their empowering message to harmonizers. In an interview in the October 2015 issue of Cosmo For Latinas, the group — Ally Brooke Hernandez, Normani Kordei Hamilton, Lauren Jauregui, Camila Cabello, and Dinah Jane Hansen — opens up about their diverse backgrounds (Lauren, Camila, and Ally are all Latina), the industry (Simon Cowell is their mentor), and female empowerment (bye, slut shamers!). Keep reading for a peek at the interview, which hits stands Sept. 15.
- On the best industry advice: "To be authentic. Simon Cowell is very adamant about it. 'Be who you are and don't allow other people to tell you who you're supposed to be.'" — Lauren
- On personal style: "It really depends on my mood and how I'm feeling that day. Sometimes I want to wear high-waisted shorts and skirts. Rarely I'll be feeling jeans. I feel like a lot of girls feel that way too. It's like, just grab what you like." — Ally
- On being slut shamed: "People aren't getting that it's time to move on and be accepting of other women dressing however they want." — Camila
"I've noticed on our video comments, it's people's go-to, to accuse us of the whole 'slut thing.' Then they support men who do the craziest things and say nothing about them." — Lauren
