Camila Cabello revealed she is close to Taylor Swift. The 19-year-old singer admitted she takes dating advice from Harry Styles' former girlfriend.

During an interview with Latina magazine, Cabello gushed about Swift, who has a history of dating high-profile celebrities including Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Zac Efron and Conor Kennedy. She said: "Our friendship has never been about career or anything professional. I tell her about boys and cry to her about boys. She'll give me advice like, 'No, do not text him back.' But I'm so excited for the day that I get to play her my music because she is seriously one of the reasons I started songwriting."

She added: "I feel like we have something really cool where we can just be honest with each other, and we can just be girls, talking about stupid crushes. It's the best."

Adding on, Cabello revealed the real reason she left Fifth Harmony. She said: "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!"
