In January the singer uploaded a video to her Instagram account speaking out about her frustration over designers who are unwilling to dress her for being a size 8 (that's an Aussie size 12) for the awards.

The pop songstress, who is nominated for Best New Artist and Best Country Duo/Group Performance, appeared at Sunday's ceremony in a flowing red gown with plunging neckline by designer Monsoori. "I just want to wear people and work with people who love me for me". "So to all the people who said I'm thick and I can't wear your dress, f-k you, I don't want to wear your f-g dresses", she went on.

"If a [US] size 6/8 is too big, then I don't know what to tell you", she continued. "He won Vogue Arabia's No. 1 designer and he worked with my body and I feel wonderful".


The singer topped off her look with a sparkly necklace with matching and went with a half-up hairstyle to tie in the look.

Fans and fellow celebrities applauded Bebe Rexha for calling out designers who made it seem as though women who are not a size 0 aren't considered attractive.

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. "I really didn't expect that, so my size 8 a- is here on the red carpet".


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 want to have a Cinderella moment: I want it (dress) to be so hard to walk in".

"So, I finally get nominated at the Grammys and it's, like, the coolest thing ever".

Rest assured, Bebe ― the stunning look was the ultimate retribution!
