Singer Bebe Rexha was spotted in Nashville, Tennessee this week, where she attended the Music Biz 2019 Awards Dinner on Tuesday (May 7).
During the award ceremony, Bebe was honored with the Breakthrough Artist Award. When accepting her award, the singer spoke about the need for more women in executive positions in the music industry.
“If I can leave you with one thing: we need more women executives in the music business,” she said.
“Only 15 percent of women in the music business actually run labels. The number is really staggering,” she continued. “Women deserve a chance and I will make space for them. Women will be equal to all the f**kin’ men. We need more f**kin’ women in higher spots so pay ’em extra, give ’em time, respect them. Women are the ones that have always taught me the most important information in my career.”
This summer, Bebe will be hitting the road with the Jonas Brothers for their Happiness Begins tour, and will hit the stage next on May 17 for Hangout Fest. To learn more about Bebe’s upcoming shows, be sure to check out her official website.
