Bebe Rexha writes message ahead of 30th birthday “I’m tired of women getting labeled as ‘hags’ when they get old”

As she gears up for her 30th birthday on August 30, Bebe Rexha has taken some time to reflect on getting older and how women in the entertainment industry are treated as they age.

The singer took to her Instagram on Monday (August 12) to share a message about women and aging.

“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 suppose to do, especially for my age. I’m 29,” she wrote.

“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,” she continued.

“Anyways, I’m turning 30 on August 30 and you know 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.”
