Bebe Rexha has embraced her body and is refusing to be pressured by society's expectations.

The 31-year-old singer has been open about her struggles with body image in the past and famously called out designers after they refused to dress her for the Grammys in 2019 because of her size.

In a recent post on Instagram, Bebe shared a stunning picture of herself in a figure-hugging catsuit and revealed to her fans and followers that she's trying to be more positive about her body.

She penned, in part, "As much as I tried to be that skinny pop-star, like the ones I grew up watching or see now, I can’t seem to do it in a way that feels natural or healthy. I like to eat.  I work out. I drink water. I do my best. I follow the rhythm of my body. Even though it gets hard, sometimes I show my body love."

Her sentiments were echoed by fans in the comments on the post. Famous friends also commented, including Tyra Banks, who wrote: "People paying for what you got."
