Exes Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello aren't about to have a reunion at the Grammys because neither opted to attend. Their absence is completely understandable: Neither Mendes nor Cabello are nominated for any Grammys this year. Mendes attended the Oscars last week in Los Angeles so there's a possibility he could be at an after-party in nearby Las Vegas.

Cabello, meanwhile, was photographed on the beach in Miami yesterday. The singer wrote candidly on her Instagram about how the paparazzi taking and selling photos of her in bikinis affect her and her body image.

“Today I got a new bikini, a whole f*ckin cute outfit, put lip gloss on, and didn’t eat anything too heavy before going in the OCEAN cause I knew it was gonna be basically a whole photoshoot,” she wrote. “I held my core so tight my abs hurt and didn’t breathe and barely smiled and was so self conscious of where the paps were the whole time I couldn’t let go and relax and do what we’re meant to do when we go out into nature. I tried to pretend they weren’t there but I couldn’t and I held my breath from my sun chair to the ocean.”

“I knew I looked ‘good’ in the pictures and thought I would feel accomplished and yet I’ve never had a worse time at the beach,” she continued. “I felt the emptiness and sadness of our culture’s thoughts that became my thoughts. I wanted to talk about this because we see pictures of women and praise them for looking good, for looking fit or ‘healthy’ but what is health if you are so fixated on what your body looks like that your mental health suffers and you can’t enjoy your life?”
