Fun fact: before Bebe Rexha became an international pop icon, she actually wanted to be an opera singer and with these chops she could have! The "Last Harrah" singer showcased her impressive talent with her nearly 10 million Instagram followers on Tuesday and the feedback is insane. Belting out an opera tune while standing in an empty hallway, Bebe Rexha shocked her fans with the spot-on vocals and revealed it had once been her dream to become a full-blown opera star.
Her Opera Skills!
"Interesting fact I first wanted to be an opera singer and I studied classical music," she told her fans. Rexha then went on to warn everyone it's been a while since she put on her opera cap. "Sorry if I f---- up the words I haven’t sang it in a long time. Rusty." We're no opera expert, but we know good tunes and Bebe hitting those notes is music to our ears. In the video, the usually glammed out red carpet queen is seen dressed down without any makeup and her blonde hair is sitting on top of her head. Revealing this footage was taken after she got done with a night of performing, Rexha added, "Anddd this is me after my show. I’m tired and just wanna go to sleep. And I got black under eyes cause I actually don’t sleep cause I’m too busy working and I’m wearing baggy clothes cause I don’t give two shits. For the people who judge)."
Bebe Rexha has longtime been a champion of body positivity and has told fans in the past about her own struggles with her curvy appearance. The two-timed Grammy-nominated singer caused a stir when she spoke out slamming several unnamed designers who wouldn't dress her for the award show because she was "too big" earlier this year. The "Meant to Be" singer took to social media to let fans know what she had been dealing with ahead of the special night.
"So, I finally get nominated at the Grammys and it's like, the coolest thing ever. And a lot of times, artists will go and talk to designers and they'll make them custom dresses to wear to walk the red carpet," Rexha began, before revealing the sad news. "So I had my team hit out 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." She went on to say, "If a size 6/8 is too big, then I don't know what to tell you. Then I don't want to wear your f------ 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."
But Bebe Rexha showed them who's boss when she walked the Grammy red carpet in a gorgeous Monsoori gown. The singer stunned when she showed up rocking an oversized bright red ballgown with a plunging neck. Wearing her hair up to not take away from the dress, she paired the look with several dazzling diamonds, giving a big double finger to all those unnamed designers who wouldn't dress her before.
