Mumbai, May 22 (IANS): Pop star Camila Cabello shared that she has found several "mechanisms" to cope with the pressures of fame, including embracing Buddhist philosophical ideas.

"I don't think I would've changed when I started (in the music industry), because so many parts of my personality today are because of the tools and the skills and ... some adaptive and some maladaptive mechanisms that I had to develop to survive and thrive,” Cabello said on the 'Armchair Expert' podcast.

"For example, I'm really into Buddhism. That would have never happened, because I need those tools - being calm and being able to pull through. But also, it carries over to other life stuff where I feel like I'm wiser than I would have been."

The 'Senorita' hitmaker tasted huge success as part of Fifth Harmony and as a solo artist.

But, she is constantly making small adjustments in order to find the ideal balance in her life, reports femalefirst/.co.uk.

"Life is like riding a bike and you're constantly balancing. It's like ... 'Oh, a little more weight here!' Just, like, tiny adjustments."

Cabello also spoke about how the COVID-19 pandemic proved to be a turning point for her, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The singer managed to develop several new skills - including learning how to cook and how to drive during the pandemic.

"I grew up fast but then there have been times ... like, for example, Covid when I learned how to drive and I learned how to cook, and I was just living the most normal life."
