Kobe inspired Camila’s AMA performance
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.
