Camila Cabello’s performance on Ellen Wednesday provoked some quizzical tweets. The “Havana” singer, sexily made up in a black lace bustier with piles of pearls wrapped about her neck, sang her latest hit, “Never Be the Same.” Swinging forth a classic black and white electric guitar, the 21-year-old hitmaker strummed with passion and believability, only her guitar was seemingly inaudible because disconnected.

Fans and foes lit up the Twitterverse with love — and snark. One viewer bitingly wrote: “Why do popstars pretend to play the guitar? It’s dishonest. Apparently she can play but this song doesn’t have any guitar in it. Anything for some rock cred eh?” Another tweeted: “I’m trying really hard to figure out why Camila Cabello, who clearly does not play the guitar, is using one as a stage prop…”

But her devoted fan base came to her defense:

The former Fifth Harmony member, whose self-titled first solo album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, has not responded to the accusations.
