If there’s one thing fans know about Camila Cabello, it’s that she’s totally relatable. If she’s not making fun of herself for falling on stage and ripping her pants in front of hundreds of people, she’s saying exactly what’s on her mind. During a recent interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the “Havana” singer dished on what it was like for her to perform on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, and say hello to 2018 in Times Square.
Well for starters, Camila couldn’t bring her family up on stage with her. So since she couldn’t have her loved ones by her side to celebrate with, the “Crying in the Club” songstress totally thought about staring off the New Year with a kiss. Of course, Nick Jonas was up on stage with her, so she naturally thought about having him be the one she could plant a smooch on when the clock struck 12. Camila explained during the interview by dishing, “So it was basically just me, and I had Nick Jonas, and Ryan Seacrest, and Mariah Carey, and the ball was dropping. I was like ‘Am I gonna kiss Nick Jonas?’ Because I thought, it’s like the New Year’s thing. I never had a new New Year’s kiss before.”
“But I didn’t. I chickened out. I thought it would be funny but Mariah Carey did blow me a kiss so that was good,” she continued to say. Uhm, she totally shouldn’t have backed out because no doubt if that kiss had actually happened – well, it would have def become some kind of phenomenon. People would still probably be talking about it to this day.
Of course, now we want to know what Nick thinks about all this. And we may have just gotten our answer on the 2018 Grammys red carpet. It seemed like history had begun to repeat itself. Camila was being interviewed by Ryan as Nick was next in line to talk to the famed television host. Things got a tad bit awkward when Ryan said, "Do you know Nick Jonas?" Camila responded, "I do know Nick Jonas!" She quickly went over to hug him, but Nick seemed oddly silent. That's when Ryan really dropped the bombshell of a question. He asked, "Didn't you guys see each other on New Year's Eve?"
OKAY, RYAN. Obviously, he had heard the story of Camila hoping Nick would have been her New Year's kiss which is totally why he brought it up. But, then, he goes so far to hand his microphone over to Nick leaving him and Camila to talk amongst themselves. While it was only for a few seconds, Nick barely looks her way. Was he embarrassed or nervous? We're totally not sure, but we were seriously cringing over here. Camila leaves the interview with grace and class, of course. She steps down away from Ryan and Nick and blows the former Jonas Brothers' hottie a kiss. It wasn't on New Year's in the middle of Times Square, but she was sure to show her love for him.
