In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan U.K., Bebe Rexha opened up about her viral tweet that some fashion designers refused to make a custom gown for her to wear to the Grammy Awards, telling her that she was “too big.”
“It broke my heart,” she told the magazine. “I was so sad, so depressed. I felt like I was garbage. I thought to myself, This is bulls**t… I was mad, I wasn’t trying to get back at anyone, but I wasn’t standing for it anymore.”
Rexha, 30, discussed the controversial tweet during her appearance on Tuesday’s episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show”, discussing her feelings on expectations about size in general.
“I say it every day for my show,” Rexha told Clarkson. “The shows are always like young girls, young guys, mothers and daughters… every night at my show, I say ‘I don’t care what anybody has told you. A number doesn’t define you.’ I think it’s really important for my fans to know I’m not trying to be that. I don’t care.”
