Bebe Rexha says designers refuse to dress her for Grammys because she’s ‘too big’

“Then I don’t want to wear your f*cking dresses.”

Bebe Rexha has said that designers don’t want to dress her for Grammys because she’s “too big.”

The singer and songwriter took to Instagram Stories to call out the labels that are taking issue with her size ahead of the 2019 awards.

Rexha is a size 8.

“I’m sorry, I had to get this off my chest,” she said in the video. “If you don’t like my fashion style or my music that’s one thing. But don’t say you can’t dress someone that isn’t a runway size.”

The Brooklyn singer explained how delighted she was to be nominated for two Grammys. She said that often, an artist’s team will approach designers about getting a custom dress made the event.

However, Rexha said that many labels refused to collab with her – because she’s a six 8.

Yeah, really.

“So I had my team hit out a lot of designers,” she said, “and a lot of them do not want to dress me because I’m too big. Literally, I’m too big.”

“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*cking dresses. Because 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.”
