Fifth Harmony Fans Go for the Jugular in Disastrous Twitter ‘Ask Me Anything’

Though they’re a product of the failed U.S. version of The X Factor, girl group Fifth Harmony released a surprisingly exciting, slickly polished pop debut with this year’s Reflection. Singles such as “Sledgehammer” and “Worth It” showed immense promise for the five singers, who’ve all already gone on to become friends with Taylor Swifta powerful cosign, as evidenced by many entertainers in the past.

That’s not to say, however, that Fifth Harmony have yet achieved the sort of success their fans seem to want from them. Last night, the ladies appeared on Dancing With the Stars to perform “Worth It” — their latest, highest-charting single to date — and thought they’d try out an “Ask Me Anything”-style Q&A with fans on Twitter with the hashtag #DWTSAllAccess. It did not go as planned. Harmonizers (as their fans are called) took the five to task for improper promotion of their singles, wildly overpriced tickets to their upcoming summer tour, an imbalance of power when it comes to their album’s vocals (Camila Cabello sings most of the solos, much like Beyoncé did back in the day), and much more.

Some of the best, funniest questions fans asked are below, but most noteworthy is the fact that Fifth Harmony’s fans are not afraid to be critical with their favorites. Often times “stans” get lost in the cloud of perceived perfection carried by their idols, but last night’s responses demonstrates an impressive amount of restraint in that department as well as the willingness to admit the flaws in the Hollywood system — in addition to the simple desire for a talented group to iron out their kinks.
