Anyone who knows Bebe Rexha knows that she is not afraid to speak her mind.
The singer recently called out a male exec who decided to voice his unsolicited opinion on her sex appeal and image. She posted a photo on social media wearing black lingerie that had the following caption:
“I recently had a MALE music executive tell me that I was getting too old and that my brand was “confusing.” Because… I’m a songwriter and I post sexy pics on my Instagram and that’s not what female songwriters are supposed to do, especially for my age. I’m 29.
I’m fed up with being put in a box. I make my own rules. I’m tired of women getting labeled as “hags” when they get old and guys get labeled as sexy with age. Anyways, I’m turning 30 on August 30 and you now what, I’m not running away from it. I’m not gonna lie about my age or sing songs that I feel will sell better because they sound “younger.” I’m gonna celebrate my age because you know what, I’m wiser, I’m stronger, and TRUST ME I’m a much better lover than I was 10 years ago. Picture dedicated to the exec who said I am too old to be sexy. Is this too sexy for you?
Bebe Rexha later wrote on Twitter, “There’s no age that you can’t be sexy.” She also added, “I’m not scared to speak out. Especially if it’s my truth.
On Instagram, tons of celebs commented on her post defending her, including Natasha Bedingfield, Rita Ora, Lauren Jauregui, The Chainsmokers, Tinashe, Neyo, X Ambassadors, Jamie Lynn Spears, and even Taylor Swift. Swift wrote, “DRAG THEM. 29 YEAR OLDS UNITE.”
