"I just did the [Instagram] video because I was really heartbroken and it bummed me out because they said I was too big or fat", she told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.

The I'm a Mess singer turned to Monsoori, the brand by Bahraini designer Shaima Al Mansoori, for her red carpet look on Sunday evening, sporting a voluminous red ruffled dress she described as "amazing". I'm confused. Were they anxious about being able to fit all her badass personality into a couture gown? "Fuck you, I don't want to wear your fucking dresses".

On the red carpet, Rexha also opened up about the outpouring of support she received after opening up about her wardrobe dilemma.

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

Just last month, Bebe Rexha became a trending topic after she revealed on social media how designers were turning down the opportunity to dress her because she was a size 8. "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". I didn't expect it.

"When I was younger I put up a vision board and one of the things that I wanted to always do was be nominated for Best New Artist", Rexha candidly revealed in the clip.

"At the end of the day, I truly believe what is inside and the music you're making and the art you're making (is what counts)", Rexha said during the segment. "I just want to wear people and work with people who love me for me". "I want to have a Cinderella moment: I want it [the dress] to be so hard to walk in".
