Ho-ho… Ha-ha! Camila Cabello knows she’s being trolled for saying the word “Christmas” – and she’s here to join in on the joke.
In a video posted via TikTok on Tuesday, November 22, Cabello, 25, cheerfully responded to criticism about how she sang the word “Christmas” during an appearance in 2021 for a PBS holiday special, Performing at the White House: Spirit of the Season.
In the clip, the Havana singer can be seen sitting as a vocal coach with her past self, trying to correct her pronunciation.
“Yes, I heard that you are recording a new Christmas cover, it’s really exciting. So, we’re just going to practice our phrasing, so repeat after me,” the new Cabello says, before demonstrating how to sing the word “Christmas” correctly.
Past Cabello, however, sings “I’ll be home for Kismua.”
After a few more unsuccessful attempts, the vocal teacher gives up. It’ll be great.” She shrugs. The hilarious video is captioned: “Me before recording my version of ‘I’ll be home for Christmas’ (quismois).”
Fans quickly flocked to the comments section to applaud the Cuban native for her sense of humor. “WE LOVE A CELEBRITY WHO CAN JOKE,” one said, while another wrote, “I LOVE YOU SO SO MUCH QUISMOIS QUEEN.”
Following her performance last year, the “Bam Bam” singer told PBS about how she and her father performed “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” on mariachi at the White House. Alejandroin attendance.
“My mom is a Cuban immigrant, my dad emigrated to the US from Mexico and recently became a citizen too,” she explained. “The fact that I can honor my heritage and represent Hispanics and also have my father share this moment with me is kind of a crazy moment. The fact that we’re an immigrant family and we’re in the White House is really special and really cool.”
Cabello also made headlines for her holiday cheer in 2020 when she and her ex Shawn Mendes gave fans a video clip of their collaboration with the holiday classic A Christmas Song.
The intimate video features clips of the two musicians spending time at home during quarantine and shows the couple, who started dating in 2019 before breaking up in November 2021, dancing under Christmas lights, wearing matching sweaters and playing with their dog.
“Merry Christmas to you and your 🖤 #TheChristmasSong video is out now,” Cabello tweeted. “Shot by us, directed by Tarzan from our quarantine bubble. @ShawnMendes Every thread supports those in need through @feedingamerica.”
