Bella Thorne plans to boycott this year's Teen Choice Awards, despite being nominated for her now canceled show "Famous in Love."

The "Bitch I'm Bella Thorne" singer posted a series of tweets Tuesday night in which she called the teen award show "gross" and "f--ked up" because it contains categories based on looks and pits people "against each other." Thorne explained that this "f--ks with kids heads" similar to a beauty competition.

"Teen choice is gross," Thorne tweeted. "The fact we are even voting against each other is .... it f--ks w kids heads like a beauty competition..."

"I'm #boycottingteenchoice besides it being rigged it's just f---ed up," she added before offering suggestions for other possible categories that she believed would be less damaging.

The award show, such will be co-hosted by Nick Cannon and social media star Lele Pons this year, has a extremely long list of awards. The surfboards are given out in categories in music, film, television, sports, fashion, comedy, and the internet.

The winners are voted on by the teens themselves. However, unlike MTV who has created gender neutral categories for their award shows (the Video Music Awards and Movie & TV Awards), Teen Choice is still split up in separate groups.

Thorne has been nominated in the past for her show "Famous in Love" and is nominated again this year in the "Choice Drama TV Actress" category. The Freeform drama (which is nominated as well) was cancelled last month.

TooFab has reached out to Thorne's reps and the Teen Choice Awards for comment, but has yet to hear back.

We will have to see if any other celebs join Thorne's plan to boycott when the Teen Choice Awards air live on August 12th at 8/7c on FOX.
