2016 was quite the whirlwind year for Camila Cabello. She left Fifth Harmony – the one band that skyrocketed her to fame – released a song with Machine Gun Kelly and made it known that she was in this industry to stay. Now, she's opening up in a brand new interview about why she exactly left the girl group and who she wants to fall in love with some day.

Camila is not only gets real, raw and candid, but she gives her fans a glimpse into what is actually going on inside her head. She talks about her dream life and what she thinks would make her the happiest. To be honest, we've never seen her open up like this before and it's simply refreshing.

So, why did she really make the final decision to go solo and leave Fifth Harmony a foursome? Camila explained, "I started in the group when I was just 15. I needed to follow my heart and my artistic vision. I’m grateful for everything we had in Fifth Harmony and for [this new] opportunity. I am less focused on success and more on doing my best and pursuing my artistic vision to the fullest, wherever that takes me. Of course I also hope people will enjoy my music!"

Aww! It's so good to hear that she actually is grateful for her time with the band. After she called it quits on them, rumors ran wild that there was so much bad blood between the girls and that's what caused Camila to say bye, bye, bye. After hearing what she's had to say, we might beg to differ.

But that's not all the "I Know What You Did Last Summer" singer said. She talked about her love life, who she wants to find her happily ever after with and why it's so important to keep personal relationships on the down low sometimes.

Camila said, "I get why people are interested in my love life, but I don’t want to give people that piece of me because it is the most important part. Here’s my dream life: I want to make songs and have incredible experiences with people. I don’t want to be locked up in a hotel room and just do press and red carpets. That’s not the kind of life I want to live. I want to make music, but I also want to go on road trips with friends. I want to go backpacking around Europe. I want to meet a Spanish boy in Spain and fall in love."

YASSS. Can you imagine how great that love story would be? Fingers crossed she finds what she's looking for in 2017. She's already off to a great start!
