Camila Cabello Says She Only Auditioned for ‘X Factor’ So Harry Styles Would Marry Her {WATCH}

Camila Cabello joined James Corden for Carpool Karaoke where she revealed that she auditioned for the X Factor at the age of 15 and at the time she was a huge One Direction fan.  It was her love of Harry Styles and 1D that influenced her decision to audition for the reality show.

“I was like, ‘Well, One Direction will be at X Factor,'” she told host James Corden. “‘I don’t know if they’ll be at The Voice, so let me audition for X Factor.’ Literally, this is really embarrassing, and I can only say this because obviously, that was like, 10 years ago, but I literally was like, ‘I’m auditioning for X Factor because I will marry Harry Styles. Like, I will.’ I really believed that at the time.”

She then clarified that she truly believe she would become a singer, meet Harry, and fall in love.  “It wasn’t like marriage but we’ll probably fall in love” she said before telling Cordon that was the first time she ever admitted to the real reason for auditioning.


Camila talked about her time in Fifth Harmony and what she does and doesn’t miss about being in a band.
