The singer claims that some of the prominent designers have snubbed her requests to create a dress for her because she is "too big".

Singer Bebe Rexha has earned her first Grammy nominee in the Best New Artist category. While the singer is happy and excited to have gotten nominated, she is facing complications in finding a designer to dress her up. 

The singer claims that some of the prominent designers have snubbed her requests to create a dress for her because she is "too big".

The 29-year-old pop star, who is nominated for New Artist and Country Duo/Group Performance at the Grammys, took to Instagram to slam designers for not wanting to work with her on a custom made gown. 

"So I finally get nominated at the Grammys and it's like the coolest thing ever. And a lot of times artists will go and talk to designers and they'll make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet ... So 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 video posted on Instagram.

The singer said she is angry that the designers are giving out the message that anyone who is size eight and above is not ''beautiful''.

''If a size 6-8, is too big, then I don't know what to tell you. Then I don't want to wear your f***ing dresses. 'Cause that's crazy ... You're saying that all the women in the world that are size 8 and up are not beautiful, and they cannot wear your dresses" she added. 

Following her rant on Instagram, Rexha was approached by the designer August Getty, who has dressed her before, as well as the likes of Kim Kardashian West, Paris Hilton, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry.

"You are beautiful! Every woman of every size is beautiful! Just let me know when I should start sketching," he commented on Rexha's video.
