A few months ago, we introduced you to Sean O'Brien aka #DancingMan.

The U.K. native initially became famous for a post on 4Chan (a photo-sharing site) that cruelly body-shamed him, and then even more famous for the outpouring of support.

A California woman named Cassandra Fairbanks started a campaign to find Sean using the hashtag #FindDancingMan, and his offline identity was quickly discovered.

Sean is having the last laugh dance, because he's the guest of honor at a massive dance party being held in Los Angeles this weekend and deejayed by Moby! Other celebrities going to show Sean support include Pharrell, Andrew W.K., and Monica Lewinsky.

If you weren't already #TeamMeghan, you're about to be!

Meghan Trainor exploded into super stardom in 2014 when her hit single All About That Bass went No. 1 in 19 countries… but for one her fans, Meghan was already the No. 1 artist in the entire world.

That's because five-year-old Isabella Harvey loves the 21-year-old so much, that she just might be the biggest Trainee out there.

You see, Isabella was unfortunately diagnosed with Leukemia in January 2013 with a relapse again in September 2014, but credits her high spirits to Meghan's uplifting music.

Well, it seems as though Meghan was touched by Isabella's unwavering support, because she surprised her biggest fan with a concert and even got to meet her in-person!

And this month she's landed her first major magazine cover with this appearance on the front of People!

Not only that, but she gets profiled inside the publication as well!

The 29-year-old has come a long, long way from her days as a bullied teen who was rejected after her first casting call at age 15, when she was told, "You have a pretty face, but you're too short and you're too big."

Tess didn't let that stop her, though, and nearly 15 years later she's landed several major campaigns — with Torrid and Benefit Cosmetics — been on the cover of LA Weekly, and now finds herself busier than ever!

"My phone still hasn't stopped ringing. It's good, but it's a lot! I just got back from London three weeks ago. I'm going to New York this week, then next week I'm going to Montreal and New York again. Then I go to Seattle, New Orleans and Vegas after that, all for work!"

She even got a shoutout from Amber Rose on Instagram!

We predict even greater things on the horizon! Yay!
