    The “I’m A Mess” singer has been nominated for two Grammy Awards – new artist and country duo/group performance – and just like any woman she has faced the problem of choosing the perfect outfit for such a high-brow music event.

    Bebe Rexha has apparently been dissed by fashion designers: the chart-topping singer took to Instagram to share with over 7 million followers that she’s been having a tough time getting ready for the Grammy Awards, slated for 10 February.

    “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… 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”, she says in her Instagram video.

    The 29-year-old beauty, who regularly flaunts her curves, went on an expletive-ridden rampage, saying that “if a size 6-8 is too big, then I don’t know what to tell you”:

    “Then I don’t want to wear your f**king dresses. ‘Cause that’s crazy… You’re saying that all the women in the world that are size 8 and up are not beautiful, and they cannot wear your dresses. So all THE people that said that I’m thick and I can’t wear their dresses: f**k you, I don’t wanna [sic] wear your f**king dresses!”

    Social media users bombarded Rexha with support, with many calling on her to expose the designers in question:

    Some suggested that top-notch brands refused to dress her because she’s not famous enough:

    Rexha’s colleagues also rushed to social media to cheer her up, including singers Leona Lewis and Adam Lambert, and supermodel Tyra Banks:

    …and share a piece of advice, like The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik:

    The chart-smashing beauty shared a similar post on Instagram in October 2018, saying she was proud of wearing size 8: “work with me and my big fat a**”, she wrote at the time.
