Camila Cabello is clearing up the rumors surrounding her polarizing accessory at the 2024 Met Gala.

The singer, 27, broke down her "stressful" experience on the red carpet while appearing on the Wednesday, June 12 episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Cabello also took the opportunity to clarify the cost of "purse," which was a block of ice encapsulating a single bronze rose.

"There was a rumor, by the way, that your purse was $25,000 or something," host Jimmy Fallon inquired.

"I saw this TikTok that had a bunch of comments and likes that was like, 'Camila Cabello is getting canceled because she spent $25,000 on this ice purse," Cabello replied. "I was like 'Guys, it's water, frozen. You can make it at home! It's however much water costs plus a rose that we got from Etsy.'"

The Fifth Harmony alum recounted how the purse broke moments before she graced the iconic Met steps in New York City.

"Somebody accidentally moved it and before I get my picture taken the clutch completely breaks," she recalled, referring to the strap of the purse. "I have poet laureate Amanda Gorman, rising actress Rachel Sennott, Kaia Gerber, Emma Chamberlain, they all turn around and they're like [gasps], because my purse just broke."

She continued, "I was just stressed because this was unplanned and this is the thing that you least want to have happen is like a bunch of famous people looking at you having a breakdown during the line before you take your picture at the Met Gala."

Cabello resorted to holding the quickly melting purse as a clutch on the red carpet.

At the Monday, May 6 ball, the singer told Extra that the custom Jane Wade purse was a nod to the “The Garden of Time” dress code and "Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” theme.

“I feel like it is impermanence and things decaying over time and the beauty in that,” she told the outlet.
