Havana music video : finding the gay 🌈
Alright! Let’s get this show started! I’d like to begin by saying that this music video had me watching it with a smile from ear to ear, from beginning to end - first because, hello, my wife is on the screen, and second because finally we get a music video with a concept, a story, and it feels so fucking good!!
Apart from being well thought, well acted, sassy, and funny, this music video is also very gay. Obviously since our baby gaymila isn’t out and still needs to cultivate her straight image, the gay is very subtly put in the video and you need to put your detective googles on ( material sponsored by Camren™) to see it.
Disclaimer : this post is full of extremely delusional theories
p.s : sorry in advance for clotting your dashboard, this is gonna be one ass long post.
So let’s dive in with the very first scene, which to me is simply the most revealing one, and the gayest - also it speaks to my Camren delusional soul like no other event has in the past few months.
The scene is set in a telenovela where Camila is playing a role, the young beautiful latina who, scandal!, gets cheated on by her boyfriend with her best friend and the maid (I need a fanfic about those two ladies, I ship it.), we discover that it’s not actually her boyfriend but his twin when the boyfriend in question appears, he was in the closet, yes, those exact words. And even more than that, he’s coming out, for her.
Now, obviously this whole scene is a big parody of telenovelas, even though she barely exaggerated 😅 , and the idea that her boyfriend in another turn of event or the continuation of the story would be gay, could totally be part of the insinuation that telenovelas plots are very often completely absurd, but I personally found a much deeper meaning to that scene…
As you may know, telenovelas are supposed to show the pure essence of romance, the most cliché love declarations and basically what everyone would want to see happen but never does because we live in the real world. With that is mind, would the most romantic thing for Camila be to come out of the closet for her??
Well that rang a fucking gigantic bell in my Camren heart.
I know I might be reaching but for her to choose that particular setting and those particular words is no coincidence. Is that a true story? 🌚
(also I can’t help thinking about little gaymila watching telenovelas and thinking about her love story with Lauren, but that just me 🌚✌️)
Just for that single scene, Havana is going in my Camren files.
Alright, next is one of the most beautiful thing I’ve ever witnessed in my life… little Camila watching tv, looking like the gorgeous baby lesbian that she is…
SHE LOOKS SO GAY I CANNOT. SHE’S WEARING GLASSES I CANNOT.
hum-hum, moving on.
Next stop: Abuelita!
This character is obviously intended to bring a comical aspect to the music video, and it works like a charm.
But if you put Abuelita through the gay filter, you get a transgender grandmother (that’s fucking brilliant) and a nice reference to the familiar word “beard” - I’ve worked up an entire delusional theory in my head about the grandmother representing the beard, and that Camila is hiding behind her, staying at home (aka the closet), playing it safe with grandma, just like Camila would in real life with her straight “relationships” - anywhoo, it’s fucking crazy and my delusional mind has rarely reached that far, so I’ll spare you the details 😅
Anyways, 10/10 for Abuelita! 👏👏👏
Let’s take a little 10 mins break (or 30) to look at this smol bean…
I WANNA FUCKING SQUISH HER!!
MY PRINCESS!!!! #triggered #mypinkprincess
MY PEACHMUFFIN!!! 😭😭😭
*pulling myself together*
Wrong, wrong, WRONG Abuelita!! That is obviously not Karla! That’s Camila with a touch of CamEEla.
Anywhoo! Let’s keep going!
Next we have a single line that stroke a deep chord in me…
Look, I’ve been called strange and antisocial, turns out it’s a few possible side effects of being a closeted gay 🙃
If I let my delusional mind analyze this a little bit deeper, my thoughts go to the cuban/mexican culture and the fact that usually homosexuality is a big taboo, especially in older generations (I get all my infos from Carmen De La Pica Morales and Santana Lopez), and that certain behaviors, like not being interested in boys or living in a fantasy world, can be seen as “strange” - or that maybe here Abuelita does know that Camila is “different” aka strange aka gay as fuck (but since it’s taboo she doesn’t say the words) and that she loves her anyways.
(at this point you must have understood that my mind is in constant fanfic writing session 😅 )
Before diving into the big Havana feature film, let’s take another 50 mins to just look at her…
LORD HELP ME.
So, back in Cuba. Karla is just being one of the boys, as usual. Letting her butch side run free for a few precious moments…
I WANNA FIGHT HER!
Then she’s dancing with a dude next to a lesbian couple on a date, like “bitch, let me entertain my people!”
Tbh I think this is the least realistic part of the music video, YOU DO NOT LOOK AWAY FROM KARLA CAMILA CABELLO DANCING! WHAT KIND OF LESBIANS ARE YOU?
Alright, the one on the right looks shook, BUT YOU ON THE LEFT GET OUT!
Then Karla plays cupid…
CCGMA, Camila Cabello Gay Matchmaking Agency™, how may I help you?
Then she’s straight dancing some more…
Then she meets Michael Jackson…
Then she slaps a dude (very satisfying)
Then just as the straight kiss is supposed to happen it cuts to princess peachmuffin Gaymila eating popcorn 😂😂😂 #savedbythegay
Then Karla dumps the dude…
In all seriousness if you take that very small dialogue “You love me.” “I do love you, but I love me more.” and put it in a Camren or 5H context… it hurts like a bitch.
Little 90 mins break to just look at her :
(also from now on those are my gifs for any drama ever happening in this fandom 😂 )
