Lauren Jauregui Was Scared She’d Be ‘Bad’ at Writing Solo Songs
It's been a long and winding journey for the individual members of Fifth Harmony, but one in particular had to overcome some serious reservations about striking out on her own.
In a series of candid tweets published early Monday morning (May 14) during an impromptu fan Q&A, Lauren Jauregui opened up about overcoming her nerves regarding songwriting, something she said she only started doing on her own this year.
"Fun fact: I actually only started writing actual songs this year," Jauregui admitted. "I had only written two songs in my life completely that I thought were [okay] and I was too scared of failure to try until my world shifted earlier this year," she wrote, referring to the girl group's indefinite hiatus, which was announced back in March.
"The rest of the songs you’ll hear I’ve actually written within the past [three] weeks/month. Literally in the studio every day just opening the floodgates of all the s--- I never let myself say," the performer continued, explaining she was "like ''nonononooooo I don’t wanna be bad at thissssss it’s literally what I love the mossssstttt,'" when it came to writing her own songs.
