Fifth Harmony throw serious shade at Camila Cabello during VMAs performance

2017-08-28
Shade was thrown at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles - thrown about 10-feet off the stage in fact. Yep, Fifth Harmony ensured they hoovered up a good portion of Monday morning's headlines after making a not-so-subtle dig at former bandmember Camila Cabello, who quit the group last December after reports of internal acrimony. The group's four remaining members, Lauren, Ally, Normani and Dinah, took to the stage last night to perform tracks 'Down' and 'Angel' from their newly-released third studio album, but fans were left confused when a fifth figure seemed to appear on stage with them. However, the fifth member of the group was quickly revealed to be a mannequin that was unceremoniously blasted off stage as the girls began performing. Talk about a send-off. The stunt, which comes just days after the group refused to talk about Cabello's exit from the group in a car-crash interview with The Sun's Dan Wootton, is unlikely to lessen the chatter around the internal tensions that led to the 'Crying in the Club' singer's departure. The VMAs saw plenty of other action as Kendrick Lamar was crowned with big winner of the night, taking home taking home six prizes, including the coveted 'Video of the Year' award for 'HUMBLE'. Hosted by Katy Perry, the politically charged show also saw transgender military personnel attended days after US President Donald Trump signed a directive to ban them from serving in the armed forces. However, despite all the onstage drama, the night's real winner may have been Taylor Swift, who managed to overshadow the whole ceremony without even being in the room after dropping her eagerly-anticipated video for new single 'Look What You Made Me Do'.
