Camila just had a serious pinch me moment on stage with Taylor Swift, remembering the time she couldn't even afford a ticket to see the singer live!
It’s been an incredible 12 months for Camila Cabello.
The 21-year-old’s career has gone from strength to strength since she parted ways with Fifth Harmony - the girl group which catapulted her to stardom.
She’s released her debut solo album, which charted at number one on the US Billboard 200, performed dates around the world on her first solo tour and she’s now opening shows for her best gal pal Taylor Swift.
All that considered, it's no huge surprise that the Cuban-American hitmaker, who was plucked from obscurity during the second season of The X Factor US, is having a massive ‘pinch me’ moment right now.
So much so that she recently took to Instagram to share a sweet story about how all of her wildest dreams have become a reality.
what was going through my mind at this moment : I remembered when i came to school one day (I think I was in 9th grade but could be wrong) and my friend Mariana had just seen Taylor on the speak now tour and told me she touched her hand and i was like when am I ever gonna be able to afford to go to a Taylor swift concert and touch her hand during speak now, and I just had a moment of "if you would've told me then what was gonna happen I wouldn't have believed it" and I had such an intense gratitude for everything I'm experiencing right now. I love you @taylorswift and @charli_xcx
Camila confessed there was a time she wondered if there was a time she'd even be able to afford to see Taylor perform, let alone be up on stage alongside her and says she couldn't be more grateful for the whole experience.
How sweet is that?! We’re so happy you’re living your best life, Camila!
