Singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha is continuing to use her platform to empower women.
The "Meant to Be" singer has been vocal about many issues, including gender inequality and negative stereotypes of mental health, and now she's focusing on the importance of staying true to one's self.
According to her, the music industry is moving in the direction of warts-and-all honesty, too.
Society created like this rule where we always have to be perfect, and that's not real.
"Society created like this rule where we always have to be perfect, and that's not real," Rexha told "Good Morning America." "The era of the super glossy pop stars have ended. I think people just want what's real."
That has always been Rexha's approach to celebrity. In April of this year, the singer, 29, publicly slammed fashion designers who refused to dress her size-8 frame for the Grammys and told her she was "too big." She hopes her fans are listening.
"The first thing I try to tell my fans, to encourage them to love themselves, is to say nice things to yourself. The things we say to ourselves can really affect us," Rexha said. "I try to say something positive to myself every day. You won't feel great every day, but you have to learn to be nice to yourself."
Rexha's desire to encourage women to be who they are is what drove the singer to join Anheuser-Busch brand RITAS' #NeverApologize campaign, which works toward inspiring women to own or reject negative labels placed upon them. She's preaching the same message in an upcoming album, and decided to hit the road with the Jonas Brothers this August for their Happiness Begins tour in part because it's also "very unapologetic."
"We should be able to do and be whoever we want to be, and not have so many labels," Rexha said. "And that's the way I've been kind of living my life right now -- not apologizing for who I am."
