Taking to social media, a lingerie-clad Bebe Rexha rocked out a little navy number while sending out a message that seemed to nod at people commenting about her weight in the past, though she feels like a “bad bitch” regardless. She noted on TikTok:
How much you think I weigh? No one’s business. Cause I’m a bad bitch no matter what my weight. But let’s normalize 165 lbs.
The timing on this post makes sense, as Bebe Rexha recently became a spokesperson for Adore Me, a lingerie brand aimed at being inclusive for women of varying figures. The bra itself looks to be the Lucinda Contour, which is part of Rexha’s summer Adore Me line. There’s a bunch of other cute stuff in the line with proceeds going to the The Ali Forney Center. However, if you want to see how the lingerie looks on, look no further than Bebe Rexha’s post.
It’s not that Bebe Rexha is lacking in good vibes over her figure. Another swimwear post from a few months ago was presented with the caption “thick thighs save lives.”
Yet, her posts are coming at a time when body positivity is becoming a focal point even among celebs. Rexha also isn’t the only singer to talk about their weight in recent months. Prior to this, Christina Aguilera opened up about being scrutinized during her youth as a pop star and what it felt like to gain curves in the limelight. She noted that as she got older she really started “appreciating” her person more, also saying:
I appreciated having a booty. I've always said that women are way more interesting to look at than men! I have a hard time looking at the early pictures of myself because I remember feeling so insecure.
When a woman is open about her size or looks different than her peers, the scrutiny can be brutal. Khloe Kardashian detailed this earlier this year when she talked about dealing with being called “the fat sister.” Yet, it is possible to get to a point of comfort, even if you are a public person. For example, Tiffany Haddish has also been extremely open about her weight and her weight loss goals over the past year. It takes courage to reveal intimate details such as your size, but normalizing 165 lbs wouldn’t be possible without women taking those first steps. And maybe selling some cute underwear while they’re at it…
