"I was like, 'This is awesome, '" she shared.

"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.

The 29-year-old also reflected on tuning into the Grammys while growing up in Staten Island, calling the full-circle moment a memory she won't soon forget.

After exposing designers for refusing to dress her size 8 frame, Rexha received an outpouring of support from celebrities like Demi Lovato and Rita Ora, as numerous well as fashion designers. "I don't wanna wear your f***ing dresses". "So to all the people who said I'm thick and I can't wear your dress, f-k you, I don't want to wear your f-g dresses", she went on.

When Ryan asked the pop star about the reaction she got to her video, she said, "It's been incredible. I really didn't expect that, so my size 8 a- is here on the red carpet". "You know what? I work too f-king hard for this bullshit, okay?"


On Sunday, Rexha told Seacrest she'd posted the video because she was "really heartbroken and it, like, bummed me out". "They said I was too big or fat and I love my body and I just want other girls to love their bodies".

After posting the video in question, several designers reached out to Rexha, including Karl Lagerfeld, Jeremy Scott of Moschino, Christian Siriano, and August Getty.

Bebe smiled and said, "I'm not telling you that, Ryan!" I don't get angry at people.

Bebe is up for two Grammy Awards: Best New Artist and Best Country Duo/Performance for "Meant to Be" featuring Florida Georgia Line.
