Fifth Harmony on Becoming a Foursome: "There's Nothing We Can't Get Through Together"
The lives of the ladies of Fifth Harmony changed when Camila Cabello announced she was leaving the group last year, and though they went from five to four, it seems like they couldn't be happier. Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Lauren Jauregui, and Dinah Jane are opening up about this new chapter in their lives as the cover girls for Seventeen's September/October issue. They are debuting a new self-titled album on Aug. 25 and have already released their hit single "Down" featuring Gucci Mane, which has over 33 million views on YouTube. The group also just announced they are going on tour throughout Latin America and are set to perform new material and fan favorites. Needless to say, Fifth Harmony is killing it.
Ally on the Future of Fifth Harmony
- "We're focusing on this new era. We've had some highs and some very, very sad lows, but together we're writing our new narrative."
Lauren on Being Proud of Who She Is
- "You can't use the fact that I'm bisexual against me if that's something I'm proud of. I feel motivated more than scared to share who I am because it makes me feel awesome when someone comes up to me and says that because of me she was able to find the strength to accept herself."
- "I've had times where everyone's like, 'Wow, you look so skinny! You look great!' And they don't know I'm in a really depressed place, and that's why I look like that. I'm all about doing little things that make you feel healthier, like going to the gym or drinking water. If I'm like, 'I hate what I'm seeing in the mirror,' I say, 'Okay, what are we going to do to fix it?' Regardless, every single inch and scar is what makes you you."
Dinah on the Place Fifth Harmony Is In Now
- "When we met, it basically felt like elementary school. Now we're in our senior year."
Normani on Being an Example and This New Chapter
- "I've struggled with self-confidence in a different way than the other girls, in the sense that I'm the only black girl in the group. It's a problem that so many little girls — whether they're African-American, Latina, whatever — can't identify with what they see. Hopefully I can be a source of light. I feel like I have the power to influence a whole generation, which is overwhelming at times but also such a beautiful thing."
- "It's so beautiful having four women on the same page. There's nothing we can't get through together."
