Fifth Harmony has become quite well known for their daring looks over the past few years, both on and off the stage. The only problem is, sometimes the attention is more focused upon that than their actual talent. When asked about haters who slam their performance outfits, the group had the best response ever.
When Hello Giggles asked what’s the one question the group is always asked but wishes they were never asked, the girls said they’re always questioned about dressing too provocatively. Lauren Jauregui called out the double standard in that query, saying: “I’m pretty sure men are never questioned whether they’re acting too sexy. They’re actually glorified when all their clothes are off. Women love that s***. They’re like, ‘Yeahhh! You’re so hot!’ But when girls take our clothes off it’s, ‘Wow, she’s such a hoe.’”
Normani Kordei echoes Lauren’s sentiments, adding how difficult it is to get people to appreciate their music without focusing on their clothes. Of responses to their stage performances, she says, “When it came to performances, people would judge us on our performance outfits,” adding, “They would say things like, ‘Look at the hoe squad.’ There were all these memes.”
Fifth Harmony is definitely known in part for their head-turning looks — rife with thigh-high silhouettes, fishnets, and down-to-there necklines — but it’s their talent that should be discussed first and foremost. Normani encourages everyone to do just that, adding, “I feel like we almost restrict ourselves as women. We could be greater than we are if we just supported each other instead of looking at each other as competition. We could all win.” We couldn’t agree more.
