Camila Cabello admires Lana Del Rey for "exposing the human underbelly" in her candid lyrics.

The former Fifth Harmony star, 27, got to perform with idol Lana, 38, at Coachella last month, where the pair performed Camila's latest tune, 'I Luv It', and she has gushed over the 'Born to Die' hitmaker for being brutally honest about "f***** up feelings".

Breaking down the track, Camila told Genius: "Embracing these f***** up feelings. Especially in pop that’s necessary cause everything feels so clean-cut and black and white. And I really like music where you’re exposing the human underbelly. That’s why I love Lana so much, cause I feel like it’s a whole human as opposed to, like, ‘And ta-dah!"

Despite the two pop stars clearly having a lot of love and respect for each other, Lana faced a backlash in 2020 after she made comments on the topic of equality after likening herself to stars such as Camila, Ariana Grande, Cardi B, and Beyonce in a post about feminism.

She wrote on social media: "Now that Doja Cat, Ariana [Grande], Camila [Cabello], Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f****** cheating etc - can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money - or whatever I want - without being crucified or saying that I'm glamorizing abuse?????? (sic)"

Lana later added: "There has to be a place in feminism for women who look and act like me - the kind of woman who says no but men hear yes."

She was forced to respond and argued her comments weren't related to race.

Lana said: "And my last and final note on everything -- when I said people who look like me -- I meant the people who don't look strong or necessarily smart, or like they're in control etc.

"it's about advocating for a more delicate personality, not for white woman -- thanks for the Karen comments tho. V helpful. (sic)"
