"You know what? I work too f-king hard for this bullshit, okay?"

"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 said in a short video posted to her Instagram Jan. 21.

Her claim to fame was "No Broken Hearts" featuring rapper Nicki Minaj, Cash Cash's "Take Me Home", David Guetta's "Hey Mama", and "Me, Myself & I" with G-Eazy.

Her headline-making fashion confession turned into something positive, with big designers offering to dress her, including, "Jeremy Scott, Moschino, August Getty, Karl Lagerfeld", which she said "was pretty dope". "I really didn't expect that". Her Monsoori designer wear had a tulle skirt and halter-styled top.

Considering most designers are eager to dress celebrities for famous awards, it seemed ridiculous when some people opted against designing for her, not because of her music, style or beliefs, but because of her "size".

When compared to the OnePlus 6T, the Galaxy S10 and S10 + will seemingly come with a bigger in-display fingerprint sensor area. The phones will come with an Infinity-O punch-hole OLED display at the front and a dual or triple-camera setup at the rear.


"It's been fantastic. I didn't expect it", she told E!

On Sunday, Rexha told Seacrest she'd posted the video because she was "really heartbroken and it, like, bummed me out". "You're saying that all the women in the world that are size 8 and up are not attractive, and they can not wear your dresses".

"At the end of the day, I truly believe it's what's inside and the music that you're making and the art that you're making", she added, telling her date - her mom - that she wanted to have "a Cinderella moment" Sunday night.

In the Instagram video, Rexha stated "So I finally get nominated at the Grammys and it's, like, the coolest thing ever". "Joking with Variety, Rexha shared the perks of rocking a big dress: "[It's] puffy so I can eat whatever I want".

Safe to say that Bebe stunned on the red-carpet, and was one of the best dressed stars at the event.
