The 18-year-old singer, who landed a place in the band via ‘The X Factor’ USA in 2012, thinks “it’s harder” for manufactured groups to remain together because they rarely share the same long-term vision.
Asked whether she expects the group to break up in the future, she said: “Honestly, I think we all do. We’d be lying if we all said this is a picture-perfect thing, like we all completely agreed on the album track list and what the sound and the music video treatment would be like, which usually happens in bands who grew up together. But for manufactured bands, it’s harder.”
But the brunette beauty insists she still gets along well with her bandmates, Dinah Jane Hansen, 18, Lauren Jauregui, 19, Normani Kordei, 19, and Ally Brooke Hernandez, 22, and they have no plans to part ways soon.
She told Latina magazine: “The cool part is that we allow one another to do our own thing within this thing. I think it’s healthy because if not, personally, I would go insane.”
Meanwhile, the ‘Worth It’ hitmaker, who previously dated Austin Mahone, admits she is “really, really, really close” to Shawn Mendes, but claims they’re not in a relationship.
She said: “I’m never the type of person that uses work as an excuse not to fall in love. I mean, I’m 18, c’mon! I’m at a point now where I just need to take a break. But if something happens, then something happens.”
