New Year’s Rockin Eve was memorable for a few reasons this time around—Mariah Carey’s take two, Maria Menous’ wedding—one of which we’re just catching wind of. Singer Camila Cabello had a lil’ story to tell when she appeared on the Tonight Show Friday evening regarding a midnight kiss of her own that almost was.
The singer was invited to Times Square to perform her solo hit, “Havana.” But as the minute hand began inching toward 12 and the ball began to drop, she looked around and realized who she was with.
“When you go into the ball drop thing, they do not let you bring your family with you… so it was just me, and I had Nick Jonas, and Ryan Seacrest and Mariah Carey and the ball was dropping, and I was like, ‘Am I going to kiss Nick Jonas!?'” Cabello told Jimmy Fallon.
Apparently (apparently!) she only thought about that because that’s just what you do on New Year’s Eve. Definitely no other reason. Nope. Much like many of us faced with the prospect of locking lips with a Jonas bro as the clock strikes midnight, she, um, “chickened out.” Relatable!
“But I thought it would be funny! You know what I mean?” Cabello said. “Mariah Carey did blow me a kiss though so that was good!”
The singer, formerly of Fifth Harmony before branding out on her own, has had similar moments when it comes to celebs, including getting “kind of weird” around Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. Gonna say it now: same (should it ever actually happen). What a glorious life, Cabello.
