  • - [Interviewer] It's the next hit?

  • - I didn't really come up with anything good, but.

  • - [Interviewer] Okay, do you have to be

  • - [Interviewer] And what is the writing process like?

  • Let's say I was like a, your lips are like pink flowers.

  • And I would write your lips

  • are like pink flowers lyrics

  • and then I would kind of,

  • I'll find like all my lyrics

  • 'cause they're all saved under the lyric tag.

  • And so then I just have

  • a bunch of those ideas on my laptop.

  • Definitely a hopeless romantic, I love love.

  • - [Interviewer] Do you think you have to be in love

  • to write good love songs?

  • - Not necessarily, but I think when you're in love,

  • the detail that you get in the song is just,

  • you can't, nobody can make that up in their imagination.

  • The way the person's shirt smelled,

  • the expression on their face,

  • the way the sky looked that night.

  • It's like those details have to come from real life.

  • - [Interviewer] And speaking of romance,

  • what's the most romantic trait that a guy can have?

  • - [Interviewer] And what's the most romantic thing

  • does ever done for you?

  • - A lady never tells.

  • - [Interviewer] You got away from that one.

  • So Camila obviously your songs are so personal.

  • - Yeah.

  • What's the most meaningful song?

  • - [Interviewer] And it was so special

  • to see you sing to your dad like that.

  • - Thanks, it felt really special.

  • - [Interviewer] Did he have any idea you were gonna do that?

  • - He didn't know until the day before

  • and he was so nervous.

  • We did the red carpet together

  • My dad is, he is not like that.

  • So I was, I couldn't believe.

  • I was like, oh my God, he was so nervous.

  • My mom and dad are both really camera shy,

  • - [Interviewer] Well, now that you're living in this world,

  • can you give me your best British accent?

  • - Ooh, I don't know, what do you think?

  • I mean, I feel like British people would say it's rubbish,

  • but I think I've watched maybe enough Harry Potter

  • to maybe slightly get away with it.

  • I don't know.

  • - [Interviewer] Regardless of what the Brits say,

  • I think that sounded amazing.

  • - Thank you.

  • Good thing I'm not doing a British accent

  • in the movie otherwise I would get in trouble.
