Fifth Harmony Change The Lyrics To “Work From Home” In A Meaningful Way During Their Debut Without Camila Cabello
Fifth Harmony stole the show at the 2017 People's Choice Awards, performing as an official foursome for the very first time. In their first official performance since Camila Cabello dramatically left the group in December, Fifth Harmony took to the stage and did what they do best. But, the performance was not without drama. Fifth Harmony changed the lyrics to "Work From Home" for their PCA performance, and it's savagery shook the 5H fanbase.
In the original version of the song, which was released when there were still five members in Fifth Harmony, Cabello opened the track singing, "I ain't worried 'bout nothing/I ain't worried 'bout nada." For their performance, the group changed the lyrics to "We ain't worried 'bout nothing/We ain't worried 'bout nada," perhaps sending a message to fans that they're eager to move on with their lives after losing Cabello. Fans reacted accordingly.
Obviously, changing the lyrics from "I" to "We" is pretty tame, and the message could be interpreted as a message of assurance to fans that Fifth Harmony is still dedicated to performing as a group, despite any drama. However, the change will undoubtedly be taken as Fifth Harmony throwing a bit of shade Cabello's way. In fact, it already has:

The first line they EVER sang as a group after Camillo left was "we ain't worried 'bout nothin'"— capri(corn) sun stan (@kriegdei) January 19, 2017
Shade or no shade, Fifth Harmony has every reason not to be worried 'bout nothing. After their performance, the group was awarded the People's Choice Award for Best Group, and they got a group photo with the cast of The Big Bang Theory backstage (yes, really). I'd say they've got nothing to worry about at all.
