An American pop star up for Best New Artist at next month's Grammys says she's struggling to find a dress for the ceremony, with designers calling her "too big."

Bebe Rexha - a singer who also nabbed a nomination for the tender country pop duet "Meant to Be" - called out designers on social media for refusing to craft her a custom gown, highlighting what has become a perennial issue on the red carpet.

"I had my team hit [up] a lot of designers," the 29-year-old said. "And a lot of them do not want to dress me because I'm too big."

Rexha did not specify which designers had turned her down, but her rant underscored the enduring challenge faced by women artists.
