Jenna Dewan denies shading Camila Cabello after saying ‘she’s always extra’ at AMAs

AMA Awards 2019 Arrivals
Last night’s AMAs were decent but they went on too long like every awards show. I know I’m such a privileged bitch to have this job but it’s work whenever I have to stay up to watch these things past 10. Plus Taylor Swift annoys the sh-t out of me for good reason. To those of you who have desk jobs, customer service jobs or who otherwise do actual work, I’m sorry. When I miss things I feel like I’m not doing my job is all. I noticed Jenna Dewan saying something to stylist Brad Goreski during Camila Cabello’s performance but didn’t think much of it because I couldn’t see what she was saying. Someone captured that moment and it’s really clear she’s saying “she’s always extra.” A clip is below (update I recorded after the original was removed on Twitter):

OK yes she’s definitely saying that. I agree about Camila, but my main sentiment whenever I see her is to think about what a nothingburger she is. No matter how hard she tries she’s always a snooze. Like how does she have this career? It baffles me. During the red carpet and performances, Jenna posted a ton of stories and she did have a positive clip of Camila with a nice caption. Here’s a screenshot of that.

Anyway once people pointed out that the clip of Jenna was going viral, Jenna and Brad recorded a video from the back of their limo saying how much they loved Camila and how they were dancing to Senorita and have no idea why people are saying they don’t like her. It was probably the best way to handle this. I put a screenshot in the gallery and here’s what they said.

Jenna: Hi guys, leaving the AMAs, I’m getting a lot of text messages from people wondering if I was shading Camila. No, I love her. I love her so much. I’m such a big fan of hers. I don’t understand what that’s about, but I love her.

Brad: Guys we were bumping and grinding to so hard to Senoria. We’re obsessed.

Jenna: It’s my favorite song!

I like how Jenna is like “omg I don’t even know what you’re even talking about.” I like her more now honestly. She’s always so kumbaya on the surface. Now that I know she’s a catty bitch I feel like she’s one of us.

Let’s get to Jenna’s fashion. Brad did a great job! She was in a beautiful pink Emporio Armani gown that made her look like a goddess. Also I know a lot of people hate the red carpet bump cradling but I would so do that if I was a pregnant celebrity. Those pictures are out there forever and you want people to know, plus it’s just natural to do that when you’re pregnant.

    Something always rubbed me the wrong way about Camilla. I will be happy when her career eventually goes away. And I always kind of felt the same abut Jenna, like she was trying to hard to be another Chrissy Teigen, but this has made me like her a little more.

    • Bima says:

      That’s not what she’s saying!! It clearly looks like she’s saying the word “Up” at the end of that. It’s “SHAWN and CAMILA broke Up” !! I can’t believe the media’s just running with this LOL

    • Erinn says:

      I’ve been really enjoying post-split Jenna. I never really got it before, but I find her pretty likable. She’s amusing. I also didn’t like Chrissy at first, but I love her now.

      I also completely forgot Jenna was pregnant haha. And that first photo where she’s basically front-on, I had to look at it for a minute before being like “duh, baby bump” because at first I just thought the fit of the dress was weird.

    • Kimberly says:

      CC is always extra. She is a show pony and attention seeker like many other female vocalists…notice I didnt say artist? She is one of those singers that adds an ooh or ah and gets writing credit…

  2. LORENA says:

    I never understood bump cradling before, I am now pregnant for the first time and I always find myself putting my hand on my belly! It’s the weirdest thing lol

    • Ela says:

      I have never been pregnant but I always assumed bump cradling was just an instinctive thing. I don’t understand woman being criticized for it.

      • TheRickestRick says:

        Couldn’t agree more, never been pregnant but totally confused that this would be something people get upset about!!
        I have long arms and feel a bit awkward with them sometimes, in photos I often cross them or put hands on hips for something to do with them! if I had a baby bump you’d better believe I would be cupping and cradling it. Something new to do with my awkwardly long arms!

    • Tweetime says:

      Just had my daughter two months ago and agree! I never had an issue with people doing it (whatever, it’s your body, have at it) but assumed it was an intentional thing yet had the exact same experience where I couldn’t keep my damn hands off my stomach haha. I think it’s definitely instinctive – it always just felt like a way to check in with my baby.

    • Kk2 says:

      It’s sometimes instinctive like when baby is kicking, otherwise not (for me). I think women do it self consciously to highlight that they are pregnant and not fat. I don’t personally judge them for it or anything (the body changes of pregnancy are tough!) But I think it looks dumb/weird/cheesy in photos.

      • LORENA says:

        I am only about 16 weeks along so I have not felt my baby kick yet. I cannot explain it, my hand just ends up resting there

      • Ashby says:

        @KK2 :
        There is NOTHING wrong with it and it certainly doesn’t look dumb/weird/cheesy at all to me in photos or otherwise!
        Most women do it automatically without thinking and it hurts nobody, so why is it an issue to some???

    • Mc says:

      I would get such bad ligament pains on the bottom part of my bump and would end up holding it to ease the pain.

      Also, she looks amazing!!

    • Erinn says:

      There are very few instances where I’ve found it super weird. There was one girl who did a cheesy bump holding pregnancy announcement thing, but it was really mainly cheesy because people knew her husband was cheating on her. So it had much less to do with the bump than it was the relationship being cringey. 99% of the time it’s kind of cute I think.

      I ended up with a bout of stomach flu last weekend, and I caught myself doing it. I’ve never had a child, but my stomach just was so upset haha, and I kind of just had my hand on it like “it’s okay buddy, we can get through this, but please don’t get sick anymore”.

      So I can see why a growing midsection might feel weird and be further incentive for someone to hold their bump lol.

  3. SM says:

    Camila has this carrer by being extra. And by extra I mean largely arranging coffee runs, calling on the papps and sticking your tongue down your boyfriend’s through because everyone needs to know how in love you are

    • Fiona says:

      I think it’s because she knows deep down she has no personality so she overcompensates in other areas LOL

  4. Eliza says:

    Unless your baby is kicking, it is really not that natural. But it’s a pose, what’s really natural about posing? It’s not like if she weren’t pregnant she’d also not be picking a predetermined pose to show off her dress.

    I like it better than say the cross legged I-have-to-pee stance. Or angry open mouthed fish face.

    • LORENA says:

      Idk I think everyone is different because I have not felt my baby kick yet and I my hand always ends up on my stomach. Also, I am showing but have not announced yet so I have not posed for pics at all

  5. Katen says:

    I always felt bad for Camila because the other girls in that group she was in seemed to blatantly hate her and it seemed like she was being bullied. But apparently she called one of the other girls the N word? If that’s true, it’s pretty gross that people leave that out when they talk about how she was treated by her bandmates.

    • ME says:

      I hate to say this as I like Shawn Mendes, but he too had controversy a while back with using the “n” word in a tweet. So, they have that in common. If you’re gonna hate her for it, you have to hate him too.

      • Katen says:

        I don’t hate her. I said it’s not genuine that people pretend that her bandmates were bullies when they’re was a reason they didn’t like her.

        I have never heard a song by Shawn Mendes and probably never will. If he’s racist, then it’s too bad he’s so successful.

  6. Lucy says:

    I don’t really love pink but I love this shade on Jenna, it’s a great look. As for Camila, I feel the same way as you do.

  7. Tuntmore says:

    I don’t see how calling someone “extra” is shady. My friends who are “so extra” call themselves that with pride. And Camila is definitely extra — I don’t think she’d disagree.

    I’m neutral on Jenna. She seems like a nice person, but she just comes across as trying too hard. Like the “cool aunt” who wants everyone to know how cool she is.

  8. Starkille says:

    Does Camila really have much of a career, though? Is she popular anywhere other than the US? Literally the only place I’ve ever seen/heard of her is this site.

  9. grumpyterrier says:

    I think Jenna is so stunning. That is all.

  10. Rachel says:

    Why is Jenna even a thing?? If anyone is a try hard, it’s her.

  11. Bima says:’s why jenna and her friend haven’t come outright and said what she was actually saying about camila and shawn..and why she has that “this is awkward” look on her face during the performance. Those two are done lol

  12. Bex says:

    I think Camila’s (sort of) a thing *precisely* because she’s extra. She’s an acquired taste and not a natural or particularly charismatic star, but she would never ever dream of sleepwalking through a performance the way Selena Gomez did last night. I like it when people are pleased to be there and not too cool to put on a show. Her full out, Broadway-style production of Havana at the Grammys remains one of the best awards show performances of recent years.

  13. Case says:

    I don’t see her saying “extra” at all. I can’t make out what she’s saying, but definitely not that.

  14. Michael says:

    These two combined are one big yawn

  15. Meg says:

    I also think photographers yell to touch your belly on a red carpet

  16. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    It looks to me like she is saying “she’s always extra” and then just closes her mouth at the end in a weird way. It definitely never looks like she says the word “broke”.
