The American Music Awards aired Tuesday, October 9, and Camila Cabello explained how she prepared for her big performance.
Camila Cabello was interviewed by Billboard on the red carpet at the AMAs and she explained that while she was on stage she took a moment to appreciate how hard she’s worked to get where she is right now. She also explained her routine for attending award shows saying she watched inspirational videos to calm her nerves.
Cabello mentioned that she watched Kobe Bryant’s Muse documentary beforehand, saying, “…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’s gonna 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.”
Camila also replied to Kobe’s tweet:
