Kobe in­spired Camila’s AMA per­for­mance

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - CITY | ENTERTAINMENT -

Singer Camila Ca­bello says her Amer­i­can Mu­sic Awards per­for­mance was in­spired by bas­ket­ball player Kobe Bryant.

“I was watch­ing Kobe Bryant’s doc­u­men­tary. And he just talks about how he keeps the hard times or any strug­gle or any­thing like that at the top of his head when he is go­ing to do some­thing re­ally im­por­tant, and I was just think­ing about all the hard times and the road to get­ting to this mo­ment, and I just thought of the strug­gles,” Ca­bello says.

“I was just think­ing about that dur­ing the per­for­mance. Any doubts that I’ve had, ei­ther from me or from other peo­ple… I tried to just kind of have that push me through this,” she added.

Ca­bello, who took home the New Artist of the Year, Video of the Year and Favourite Song – Pop/Rock for Ha­vana at the awards, says that she was happy that she was, for once, able to for­get about her nerves and take time to en­joy her suc­cess and ap­pre­ci­ate the ef­forts she had put into do­ing so well.

“I think these mo­ments are when you’re like, ‘You know what? En­joy this mo­ment. Own this mo­ment. You’ve worked for it, you’re here’. And some­times it’s hard to do that be­cause you get ner­vous, but to­day I was like, ‘You know what? Just en­joy this mo­ment, be­cause you’ve fought so hard to get to this mo­ment’,” she says.
