Lauren Jauregui Talks Donald Trump & Fifth Harmony’s Feminism In ‘Vulkan’: 6 Pics
Lauren Jauregui has opened up to the public before, though not like this.
As Vulkan magazine’s latest cover star, she discussed Donald Trump‘s presidential administration in even greater lengths than she did in that open letter to his voters. (“I’m actually a huge fan of changing every single ‘anti-Trump’ sentiment to ‘pro-human rights’ because they are synonymous”). Lauren also made clear that her — and Fifth Harmony‘s — feminist ambitions aren’t contradicted by the group’s sometimes sexy lyrics and image.
We had so many of our fans tell us how worthless they felt before they found out about us and watched our interviews and listened to our music. Within our music there are a range of topics that deal with growing up, love and understanding. A woman embracing her sexuality is something that shouldn’t be taboo; most of our songs that are popular are sexual for sure, but I would say that’s more of a result of what the culture in America propels and consumes.
Our first singles, “Miss Movin’ On,” and “Sledgehammer” all had to do with harnessing your power and love. Those unfortunately weren’t as successful as “Worth It” or “Work From Home” so I think it’s a clear trend of what people want vs. what we want to give them. Again though, women embracing their sexuality should never be a reason to disregard their intellect or ability to speak on topics beyond that.
Lauren also discusses Fifth Harmony‘s follow-up to 7/27, the group’s first album without Camila Cabello. “We’re working on an album right now where we had the opportunity to finally write a few songs, so that in itself has been an incredible start. I’m excited to see where this next chapter takes us.” she says. Click through the Vulkan magazine shoot up top. Read the cover story in full here.
