Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui wants fans to feel fearless
Lauren Jauregui thinks it’s important Fifth Harmony make their fans feel fearless.
The 20-year-old singer - who stars in the chart-topping group alongside Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei and Dinah Jane - has been outspoken on a number of issues over the years, including the current US President Donald Trump, and Lauren feels the band can be a positive influence on their young fans.
She shared: “For me as an artist, pop culture has so much power and influences society on a regular basis - I see it in the kids, I see it in everyone that I encounter, everyone is influenced by pop culture whether we want to be or not.
"Something that’s so important, is just like empowering these kids and letting them know what their voice means and showing them that they shouldn’t be afraid. Because there’s nothing to fear.”
The ‘Down’ hitmaker feels a responsibility to make “empathy cool”.
Lauren told HOT 97: “This world is our reality, we create the reality that we exist in so if everyone can just think about what they’re doing and think about what’s going on and really care about it for just a second of their time.
"Empathy is so important and making empathy cool and make empathy a really amazing thing that everyone should want to practice. We should care about each other.”
In November, Lauren penned a letter criticising President Trump and his supporters.
And despite receiving some subsequent “backlash” from her letter, Lauren stands by her comments.
She said: “I kind of saw a lot more support than I saw backlash.
"For me, the whole message was really important and at the time I felt in my heart compelled to say something about it because I so strongly believe in what I believe in and I myself I love who I am and I love who these women are. And we represent that.”
Taylor you, your music, words and character have been a huge part of my life since I was 13, I could go on and on and on, about how much you have done for me since then, inspiring me and helping me become the person I am today. From 7 years ago when The Best Day was the story of my school years too, but seeing who you had become inspired me to get through it, To today where you have given me the courage to make a much needed change in my life and move all the way across the country, in order to follow my dreams.
From the very beginning I have found such enjoyment in dressing up for your tours. Fearless was my very first concert ever, we found the closest dresses we had to ones you had worn and curled our hair just like yours. Then for Red we wore red tutus, made some sparkly red shoes and decorated tshirts with all Red’s songs. And then now, here’s my costume for 1989, I used the basics of your HYGTG tour outfit but instead of the lights I have printed various images of everything about you that means the most to me, from my drawings about particular lyrics not just from 1989 but also Fearless, Speak Now and Red, to quotes of things you have said, and ‘bakeitoff’ photos because that also means a lot to me.
So @taylorswift I am glad to say I am lucky enough to be seeing you first in Brisbane (Aisle 319, Row 12, Seat 48) and then for a second time in Melbourne on night one (Aisle 28, Row J, Seat 35), So I shall see you there very soon xxxx
