Brooke first clarified that there was no "pushing" anyone off stage, before she explained, "We get asked all the time if we're getting a fifth member, and we wanted to show the world in an artistic way that, hey, the four of us are Fifth Harmony."
She continued, "We're stronger and better than we've ever been. Honestly, it was such a monumental moment for us. We were at the VMAs. We had rain. We had the splits. We had a mic drop!"
Despite statements asserting that the girls in 5H wished Cabello well (and she, of course, returning those sentiments) the "Havana" singer admitted she's reached out and hasn't heard back from them.
"I don't want to get into the details of that, because it was really intense and it's hard for me to talk about," she told Billboard earlier this year. "It makes me sad...I hoped that it would be a peaceful turning of the page, and we would root for each other. But I only got love for them."
