Jenna Dewan appeared to have a great time at the 2019 American Music Awards Sunday night (November 24), rocking out in the crowd to the performances alongside her stylist and friend, Brad Goreski. But one moment caught on camera had some viewers wondering if she was mocking Camila Cabello.
It all went down while Cabello and her boyfriend, Shawn Mendes, were on stage performing their hit song “Senorita.” A clip started circulating on Twitter where people thought Dewan said to Goreski, “She’s always extra” while rolling her eyes, appearing to reference Cabello. Though others seemed to think Dewan said, “She always sounds good.”
There was enough buzz around the matter that Dewan felt she needed to address it on her Instagram Stories during her car ride home. “I’m getting a lot of text messages from people wondering if I was shading Camila. No! I love her. I love her so much. I’m such a big fan of hers,” Dewan, 38, explained in the video. “I don’t understand what that’s about but no, I love her, love her, love her.”
“Guys, we were bumping and grinding so hard to ’Señorita.’ We’re obsessed,” Goreski said. Dewan continued, “That’s my favorite song! Anyways, clearing that up. Thank you AMAs. That was so much fun.”
She also tagged Cabello and Mendes in the post, writing, “We love @camila_cabello @shandmendes.”
“I love this award show. I come every time I’m invited,” Jenna Dewan said earlier in the night on the red carpet, per People. “I’m so excited. Selena, I’m very excited about. Dua Lipa, I’m thrilled about.” She even shared a clip of Cabello’s performance earlier in the night.
So there you have it. There’s really no drama here. If only all internet drama could be squashed so quickly and efficiently. For what it’s worth, it seems that Mendes and Cabello had a great time last night, too. “Thank you everyone thank you so much!! ❤️ also @camila_cabello. i admire you so much you unbelievable human being thank you for being you ❤️❤️ we love u guys @AMAs,” Mendes tweeted.
