What Alessia Cara Had to Say to the People Hating on Her Grammys Win

Alessia Cara has responded to the unexpected backlash she faced after winning Best New Artist at The Grammys.

Detractors have been focused on the fact her debut album Know-It-All came out in 2015 and produced two No. 1 AT40 hits "Here" and "Scars to Your Beautiful."

Alessia defended her win on Instagram, writing in part: 

This is “Something I had no control over. I didn’t submit myself, but I won and won’t be upset about something I’ve wanted since I was a kid.

This shows what I’ve created is worth something and all of the years feeling like I was naïve for dreaming about something improbable paid off.

I know it sounds cheesy and dumb but it’s the honest truth."
