Only a few days ago, Grammy-nominated singer Bebe Rexha took to Instagram to proclaim her anger and frustration at body-shaming designers who refused to dress her for the ceremony.

Why? Because she's a SIZE EIGHT. She didn't name names, but if only she did. They'd have been ripped to shreds in minutes.

The Meant To Be singer is nominated for two awards at the Grammys, and said in a video; "If a size six/eight is too big, then, I don't know what to tell you, then I don't want to wear your f*cking dresses, 'cause that's crazy."

She continued; "You're saying that all the women in the world that are size eight and up are not beautiful and they cannot wear your dressed,"

"Im sorry, I had to get this off my chest," Bebe captioned the post. "If you don't like my fashion style or my music that's one thing. But don't say you can't dress someone that isn't a runway size."

"Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less then by their size. My size eight ass is still going to the Grammys," she concluded. 

Demi was quick to comment her support; "F*cking preach!!! Love this and you for speaking your mind and using your voice!!!"

Demi Lovato has always been vocal against body-shamers online, and supportive of plus-sized models in the industry.

She even told a fan who created a detailed sketch of the singer; "That's not how my body looks", insisting that her body be represented accurately.

Rexha has received an overwhelming amount of support from the public and celebrities alike following her video, with numerous designers offering to dress her.

Grammy-nominated singer Bebe Rexha has just SHAKEN our rage cages by revealed designers are turning down the opportunity to dress her for the Grammy Awards.

Why? Well, because she's a (stunning) size eight. 

The 29-year-old is nominated in the Best New Artist and Best Country Duo/Group Performance categories at the upcoming awards show, and claims she's having trouble finding the perfect gown because of designers and their weight expectations.

The star uploaded an Instagram video detailing her frustration, saying;

"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, right? Like you go to any big designer. 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 added.

Bebe later addressed the designers directly, slamming them for their decision:

"You’re saying all the women in the world that are a size 8 and up are not beautiful and that they cannot wear your dresses," she said.

"So all the people who said I’m thick and I can’t wear your dress, f*ck you, I don’t want to wear your f*cking dresses." YES GURL, YOU TELL 'EM.

We'll be honest, if you had told us two years ago that Niall Horan would end up being the most successful member of One Direction we probably would have laughed at the idea – but oh how wrong we were.

With two top 10 singles and a critically acclaimed album under his belt, the Mullingar native has prove that life post-1D isn't that bad after all.

Sure, the other lads have had their fair share of successful, but none have made waves in the music industry quite like our Nialler.

Zayn and Harry who? 

Last night, the Slow Hands singer was finally given the recognition he deserves when he scooped the Best New Artist Award at the star-studded American Music Awards in Los Angeles, triumphing over fellow nominees, James Arthur, Julia Michaels, Post Malone and Rae Sremmurd.

In an emotional acceptance speech, Niall said: “This is unbelievable. I've had a hell of a year. To be put in that category with some of my friends was unbelievable enough.”

He then went on to dedicate the award to his fans and thanked them for their support throughout his career.

The future is looking bright for the Mullingar man.
