Bebe Rexha Reveals That Designers Will Not Dress Her for the Grammy Awards Because She’s a Size 8
The 2019 Grammy Awards are extra-special for singer Bebe Rexha. The pop star is nominated for Best New Artist and Best Country Duo/Group Performance, but as she gets ready for her big night she’s discovering that finding the perfect red carpet dress may be harder than snagging those nominations.
The “I’m a Mess” singer, 29, voiced her frustrations with the dress-finding process on Instagram, explaining that a number of designers she was hoping would dress her for her big night are unwilling to because of her size.
“So I finally get nominated at the Grammys and it’s like the coolest thing ever,” Rexha starts by saying in her Instagram video. “And a lot of times artists will go and talk to designers and they’ll make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet. So I had my team hit out a lot of designers and a lot of them do not want to dress me because I’m too big.”
Rexha, who wears a size 6-8, defended herself, and all women who wear a size 8 and up, in the second half of her video. “You’re saying all the women in the world that are a size 8 and up are not beautiful and that they cannot wear your dresses. So to all the people who said I’m thick and I can’t wear your dress, f—k you, I don’t want to wear your f—g dresses.”
