Bebe Rexha attends the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center

A few weeks ago singer Bebe Rexha revealed that despite earning her first two Grammy nominations this year, a damper was put on her excitement when it came time to pick the flawless dress. "Joking with Variety, Rexha shared the perks of rocking a big dress: "[It's] puffy so I can eat whatever I want".

In an Instagram video, Rexha explained that many designers refused to dress her because she's "too big".

"It's been unbelievable. I didn't expect it". "I don't wanna wear your f***ing dresses". "And I was really upset, and I decided to make a video".

The pop singer then looked at her mother, who was sitting in the audience and said, "My mom is like, 'Please calm down.' Mom's like, 'Please calm down.' I love you, Mom".

When Ryan asked the pop star about the reaction she got to her video, she said, "It's been unbelievable".

On Sunday, Rexha told Seacrest she'd posted the video because she was "really heartbroken and it, like, bummed me out". "You know what? I work too f-king hard for this bullshit, okay?"

"I love my body, and I just want other girls to love their bodies", Rexha told E! on the red carpet, while sharing that Jeremy Scott, Christian Siriano and Karl Lagerfeld had also reached out to the singer with offers to design her a look.

Lester Cohen via Getty Images "I feel like a princess", Bebe Rexha said. But she cracked and admitted - without naming names - that a few had indeed come crawling back.

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

Bebe is up for two Grammy Awards: Best New Artist and Best Country Duo/Performance for "Meant to Be" featuring Florida Georgia Line.
