Bebe Rexha manifested her way to the 2019 Grammys stage!

She addressed the viral video during a pre-show segment Sunday night, explaining, "I was in the studio one day, and one of my friends called me - he's a stylist - and he told me that a lot of designers, we couldn't get them because I didn't fit in the show sizes, which is 0 and 2". "Extra's" Tanika Ray spoke with Bebe, who revealed, "My team is like, 'You have to be a little more filtered'".

"If a [US] size 6/8 is too big, then I don't know what to tell you", she continued. "To all the people that said that I'm thick. f**k you, I don't want to wear your f**king dresses". "We're over the media-management times, we need real". "Fuck you, I don't want to wear your fucking dresses".

After a strenuous journey trying to find a designer to dress her for the 2019 Grammy Awards, Bebe Rexha finally found someone who created a gown that was just as handsome as she is. "Joking with Variety, Rexha shared the perks of rocking a big dress: "[It's] puffy so I can eat whatever I want".

"I was like, 'This is fantastic, '" she said, sharing the fact she hopes her experience inspires women to be proud of the way they look.

A host of designers ― including August Getty, Tanya Taylor and Christian Siriano ― responded to Rexha's frustrations by saying they'd be happy to dress the star. "I just want to wear and work with people who love me for me".

There's one awards show that always takes fashion to the next level and that's the GRAMMYs! "You're saying that all the women in the world that are a size 8 and up are not lovely and they can not wear your dresses".

Among other awards, Bebe Rexha and H.E.R. are nominated for Best New Artist at the 61st Grammy Ceremony.
