Although Lauren Jauregui has every intention of remaining a singer in Fifth Harmony, the 21-year-old recently revealed that she was interested in making music that 5H fans may not be used to.

The singer is determined to find a place where she can comfortably exist in the world, with a first step of creating music that resonates with others. During an interview with Out Magazine, the star revealed that she wants to create music that may offer a brief escape to those plagued by the problems going on in the world.

“I want to make music that makes people feel things and think differently and want to be on [my] side of thinking,” Jauregui said.

“Like, come be cool with me,” she added.

One person who may not agree with what Jauregui’s definition of cool is her former group member Camila Cabello. The singer, who left Fifth Harmony in December for a solo career, recently revealed that she experienced a career milestone that she never had with her group.

During an interview with Billboard, Cabello spoke about her experience as a headliner at the Billboard Hot 100 Festival. “It’s my first festival as a soloist. We did a few with Fifth Harmony, none that important. I love it, it’s a completely different experience. To share the stage with Major Lazer, huge guys who’re awesome on festivals because they bring the audience together and everyone is jumping, is very different to what I am doing with Bruno Mars, where almost everyone is going to see him,” she said.

The “Havana” singer also revealed that she had a great time at the festival because of the unique environment. “The good thing in the Hot 100 is that there is more of a mixture, there are more artists and more audience for all.”

While Jauregui is still working on creating important music that others can relate to, she believes one of her songs, “Strangers,” with Halsey, shared a message that society needed to hear.

“To me, the song is culturally valuable because people are feeling so invalidated and distant from themselves like they should be ashamed of who they are,” the “Down” singer ,who came out as bisexual last year, explained.

“It’s good to be an anarchist and just love yourself. That’s the most rebellious thing you can do right now,” she added.

“Strangers” was initially about a woman wanting to be with a man but Halsey who is also bisexual reached out to Jauregui before recording the song, suggesting that they change things up. “Then I got a text from her: ‘Hey, babe, you can totally shut this down, but I was thinking we could switch the pronouns,’” she said.

Jauregui revealed that she was thinking the exact same thing and thus the focus of the song became about two women. With the many issues going on in the world, the “Deliver” singer revealed that she doesn’t understand why people still have a problem with sexual orientation.

“But it’s like, why does it make you feel gross? You can watch a kid get bombed and not do anything about it, but you can’t watch me kiss my girlfriend?”

Even though Jauregui’s ultimate goal is still a work in progress, she continues to voice her thoughts and opinions on social media which tends to resonate with others.
