"You know what? I work too f-king hard for this bullshit, okay?"

She addressed the viral video during a pre-show segment Sunday night, explaining, "I was in the studio one day, and one of my friends called me - he's a stylist - and he told me that a lot of designers, we couldn't get them because I didn't fit in the show sizes, which is 0 and 2".

Rexha told E! on the red carpet, "I just did the video because I was really heartbroken and it bummed me out... I got Jeremy Scott, Moschini and Christian Siriano and Karl Lagerfeld hit me up and I was like, 'This is unbelievable.'" Prior to the big night, Rexha told Variety at the Women in Harmony event that she had two dresses for the big occasion ready to go. "I really didn't expect that, so my size 8 a** is here on the red carpet".

Well, the stunning blonde showed every single designer who shunned her what they were missing out on by absolutely owning the red carpet in a princess-inspired gown by designer Monsoori.

Considering most designers are eager to dress celebrities for famous awards, it seemed ridiculous when some people opted against designing for her, not because of her music, style or beliefs, but because of her "size".


"You're saying all the women in the world that are a size 8 and up are not handsome and that they can not wear your dresses".

"I mean, I'm okay".

"It's been unbelievable. I didn't expect it".

"When I am the most transparent, my fans connect with me the most, and you can't fear things - that's why people love Cardi B", the 29-year-old elaborated. Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less then by their size. "For me this is my Cinderella moment".
