What you didn’t see on TV at the 2019 Grammy Awards

The 2019 Grammy Awards were undeniably huge for Bebe Rexha. The rising star was nominated in two categories but still struggled to find a dress for the big day. In an Instagram post, the singer revealed that she had her team reach out to a number of designers, but a lot of them passed on making her a gown because of her size.

“You’re saying all the women in the world that are a size eight and up are not beautiful and that they cannot wear your dresses,” she said in the video. “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***ing dresses.”

According to People, Rexha is between a size six and eight (the average American woman is between a size 16 and 18). Not to mention, she’s beautiful, down to Earth and one of the night’s highest-profile newcomers. Following her Instagram statement, Jeremy Scott, Christian Siriano, and Karl Lagerfeld reached out to help dress the star. She ended up going with a red Monsoori princess gown that could not be ignored.

“I want to have a Cinderella moment: I want it [the dress] to be so hard to walk in. I can’t believe that I am finally nominated for a Grammy, two Grammys! For me this is my Cinderella moment,” she told E! News (via People).
