Bebe Rexha and Kelly Clarkson Have a Message for Body Shamers: ‘A Number Doesn’t Define You’
Bebe Rexha is all about spreading body positivity! The pop star recently visited The Kelly Clarkson Show, where the topic of her epic takedown of fashion designers discriminating against thicker girls was brought up.
"I'm sorry, I had to get this off my chest. 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," she wrote on social media at the time. "We are beautiful any size! Small or large! Andddddd My size eight a-- is still going to the GRAMMYs."
"Nothing fits in fittings! You ever go to fittings and they bring all these designer things that they make in, like, size zero," Rexha said to Clarkson in response to the social media post. "And it's like, I can't even get it one leg. And they're like, 'It fits!' I'm like, 'It doesn't fit.' And then I put it on and then I rip it and then you gotta buy it."
"It's not that anybody's against skinny people, it's just that we're for all people," Clarkson added.
The message isn't just one Rexha shares via socials, either. She makes it a point to speak out about body image during her concerts, too. "The shows are always, like, young girls, young guys, or, like, daughters with their mothers," she said. "I say, 'I don't care what anybody has told you, a number doesn't define you.' And I think it's really important for my fans to know that I'm not trying to be that. I don't care."
