Bebe Rexha Addresses Anxiety About MTV VMAs

Concerned about her appearance should she walk the red carpet, Bebe Rexha may very sit out tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Posted to TikTok on Monday (9.11,) the superstar singer/songwriter told her fans that she might drop out of the Tuesday (9.12) awards show due to feeling “so anxious and stressed” about posing on the red carpet and having her weight criticized. 

“I know that the criticism comes with the territory so I am all good with that. I mean, sometimes it does get to me. I am human,” shared Bebe. “But I wanted just to talk about this because I meet a lot of people and a lot of times they’ll be like, ‘Oh my god, I love how you’re all about positivity and confident.’ Let me tell you, right now, I’m not feeling so confident.” “I am so anxious and stressed about going on the red carpet and, I guess, people talking about my weight. ‘Cause I’m not really loving myself right now. I’m not really feeling like the bad b**ch that I usually am.”

Acknowledging that she felt “very grateful and blessed” to be invited to the ceremony, the artist (born Bleta Rexha) insisted that she wants to attend because she’s nominated for Best Collaboration for ‘I’m Good (Blue)’ with David Guetta. Asking her followers for their “motivational tips and tricks” to help her feel confident enough to go to attend the 2023 VMAs at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, Bebe said:

“I don’t know if I’m going to go tomorrow. I do have an outfit. It is cute. And I do want to wear my dress, and I do really want to go to celebrate my nomination and my friends’ nominations, but I do feel like anxiety gets the best of me.” “Maybe you’ll see me on the red carpet tomorrow.” 

Over the the past few months Bebe Rexha’s been shamed online due to her weight gain.
