Women can be sexy at any age, and Bebe Rexha wants to send that message to everyone.
The singer is hitting back after she says that an unnamed male music executive told her she was “getting too old” to be sexy.
Rexha posted a mirror selfie showing her wearing nothing but a black bra and panties, along with a message about ageism and sexism in the industry.

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. 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 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.

Rexha is turning 30 on August 30th, says she’s embracing the new decade.

Some celebrities came to the singer’s defense in the comments including Rita Ora, The Chainsmokers, and Taylor Swift, who wrote, “DRAG THEM. 29 YEAR OLDS UNITE.”

On Twitter, Rexha posted the same black-and-white photo that she posted to her Instagram to the “music executive who said I am too old to be sexy.”

 

In a follow-up tweet, Rexha wrote that “there’s no age that you can’t be sexy.”
