AceShowbiz - Bebe Rexha can't find a designer to dress her for the Grammy Awards next month - because she is "too big."
The singer, who is nominated in the Best New Artist and Best Country Duo/Group Performance categories, took to social media on Monday, January 21, to explain her predicament three weeks before music's big night, revealing she's struggling to find an outfit.
"A lot of times artists will go and talk to designers, and they'll make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet...," the "Meant to Be" star says in a video posted to Instagram. "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."
"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... To all the people that said that I'm thick... f**k you, I don't want to wear your f**king dresses."
Bebe captioned the video, "Im sorry, I had to get this off my chest. 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. We are beautiful any size! Small or large! Anddddd My size 8 a** is still going to the Grammys."

Im sorry, I had to get this off my chest. 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. Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less then by their size. We are beautiful any size! Small or large! Anddddd My size 8 ass is still going to the Grammys. #LOVEYOURBODY
She isn't the first real-size celebrity to speak out about the red carpet snobbery surrounding designers refusing to dress certain body types - comedian Leslie Jones took aim at the fashionistas when she couldn't find anyone to dress her for the "Ghostbusters (2016)" premiere in 2016 - she took to Twitter to voice her disdain, writing, "It's so funny how there are no designers wanting to help me with a premiere dress for movie. Hmmm that will change and I remember everything."

She refused to name the designers she reached out to, but Christian Siriano stepped forward and offered to dress her, stating, "I love Leslie and can't wait to make her something fabulous to wear. I dress and support women of all ages and sizes."
