mind sharing your thoughts about lauren and simon?
okay so disclaimer that i am only a casual fifth harmony fan so a lot of this is based on light observation rather than anything in depth.
in case anyone isn’t familiar, there have been rumours for years that camila and lauren are/were secretly dating.
i don’t know if camren is actually thing but i tend to lean towards no. anyway i’m not going to dwell on that because it’s not super relevant here. regardless of the legitimacy of camren, i *do* think lauren is gay (or at the very least, into girls too) and she’s pinged me for years.
i’m not going to use my gaydar as a source obviously but more as a general introduction to my thought process and what led me to paying more attention to her.
i think that she’s not straight and that she’s basically the louis of fifth harmony and simon’s been punishing her for her sexuality for years.
okay, now onto the actual reasons why i think that.
1. first - she’s a BRILLIANTLY TALENTED SINGER and she gets pretty much no solos and no time to shine. she’s been shoved in the background for years. here’s a video in which you can gauge her voice for yourself.
2. THE VAMPS SONG. okay so lauren dated (’dated’?) a member of the vamps and then they wrote this song and it’s pretty transparently about lauren (there was tons of press about it and a lot of fandom drama:
3. she posted this on her tumblr (which obviously isn’t a confirmation or denial of anything but as far as i can tell from some lowkey googling it’s the most she’s said on the subject):
and here’s a link to that tumblr account from her twitter:
i haven’t really gone through her tumblr in detail in a long ass time but from what i remember, she struck me very much as an outspoken feminist who speaks up for and supports marginalized communities when and where she can (and i’m sure it pisses simon off).
4. she was papped with louis (not necessarily super relevant to my points but still worth mentioning seeing as she’s basically the louis of fifth harmony
minus the fake baby):
so anyway, regardless of how lauren identifies, i think this is pretty damn important and i’m so proud of her:
