You know what they say about the squeaky wheel, it gets the oil.
Such is the case for talented pop star, Bebe Rexha, who was allegedly told by some fashion designers she was “too big” to dress for the Grammys. The 29-year-old pop star who scored a Grammy nomination for best new artist told her fans she’s finding it rather difficult to land a designer who will fit her for next month’s awards show – and she shared her frustration on Monday in a video posted to Instagram.
“So, I finally get nominated at the Grammys and it’s like, the coolest thing ever. And a lot of times, artists will go and talk to designers and they’ll make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet,” Rexha explained to her fans.
“So to all the people who said I’m thick and I can’t wear your dress, f— you, I don’t want to wear your f—ing dresses.”
This isn’t the first time Rexha has called out designers either. She wrote this post a year ago regarding the same issue via Instagram as well:

Size 8 and Proud. Wanted to always be a skinny pop star but I’ll never be that. So to all the designers don’t send me sample sizes. They won’t fit and I won’t change myself to make them fit. Work with me and my big fat ass. Love, Bebe 💕
Ever since her Instagram video went viral, fans, celebrities, and designers have commented on her post with support.
The dress designer August Getty responded to her Instagram post and offered to make her a gown. “You are beautiful! Every woman of every size is beautiful! Just let me know when I should start sketching.”
Puerto Rican designer Stella Nolasco reached out to Rexha saying, “I would love to dress you!”
Designer Tanya Taylor also left a comment, “Bebe — we would LOVE to design something custom for you!! Can we discuss?? Xx”
Designer Elizabeth Kennedy related to what Rexha was going through. “I’d love to make you a dress for the Grammys! I’m a size 8 too, and yes it is a beautiful size.”
A slew of other designers and personalities have reached out to Rexha to support her. I think we can all agree Rexha is absolutely gorgeous and any designer who would refuse to work with her doesn’t know what real beauty is.
