Bebe Rexha claims that numerous designers refused to dress her for the Grammys as she’s ‘too big’. 

In an Instagram video last night, Bebe Rexha furiously told her fans that her “size 8 ass is still going to the Grammys” whether or not the major designers she spoke to were willing to provide her with an outfit. 

I finally get nominated at the Grammys and it’s like the coolest thing ever. A lot of times, artists will go and talk to designers and they’ll make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet. So, I had my team hit up a lot of designers and a lot of them do not want to dress me because I’m too big. 
Literally… I’m “too big”? If a size 6/8 is too big then… I don’t know what to tell you, but I don’t wanna wear your fucking dresses, ’cause that’s crazy. You’re saying that all the women in the world that are size 8 and up are not beautiful and they cannot wear your dresses… 

A US size 8 is close to a size 12 in Ireland.

She ended her statement by saying, “All the people who say I’m too thick and I can’t wear your dresses: Fuck you. I don’t wanna wear your dresses.”  (Instagram)

Lady Gaga called out Vice President of the United States Mike Pence during a concert at her Las Vegas residency. 

In the Park Theatre venue, Lady Gaga said that Mike Pence and his wife Karen Pence are the “worst representation of what it means to be a Christian.” 

You say we should not discriminate against Christianity; you are the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian. I am a Christian woman and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome. So you can take all that disgrace Mr Pence and you can look yourself in the mirror and you’ll find it right there. 

Gaga’s comments come after Karen Pence announced that she would begin teaching art for two days a week at the Immanuel Christian School, a school which has been accused of discriminating against LGBTQ children and parents with their policy that allows them to “discontinue enrolment” if students and their parents are “in opposition to the biblical lifestyle the chool teaches”.

After Lady Gaga called out Mike Pence, she called out Trump for the shutdown, telling the President to “put our government back in business. There are people who live pay-cheque to pay-cheque and need their money.” (NME)

Aside from all of the drama Azealia Banks has had surrounding her in relation to her Irish tour, she’s apparently been calling Grimes a ‘brittleboned methhead’ who ‘smells like a roll of nickels’. 

Last week, a judge ordered Grimes and Banks to preserve their correspondence under a subpoena that was issued to preserve evidence in an investigation into Elon Musk, who is being sued by investors for tweeting that he wanted to take his company private at $420 a share. What a sentence.

Anyway, Azealia Banks shared some screenshots of her text messages with Grimes and they are far weirder than anybody could have ever dreamed. In a back and forth, Grimes called Azealia Banks a “narc” multiple times, to which Azealia replied, “At least I have bone marrow sis lol.” Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, replied, “At least I’m not fat.” Continuing to fight like a pair of 14-year-olds, Azealia said that Grimes looks “like a little boy”, and warned Boucher that she should be afraid of her. Grimes replied “Only thing that should be afraid of u is the buffet.” 

As the argument went on, Grimes eventually said, “Sorry. Shouldn’t have said that. Didn’t mean to make you feel bad.” Azealia replied, “You could never darling.” Grimes said, “Goodnight.” To which Azealia replied, “Good girl. Back down… exactly the way I knew you would.” Grimes said, “Sweet narc dreams.” Then, Azealia said, “Ok you brittleboned methhead.” 

What a time to be alive. (Jezebel)
