Bebe Rexha, 29, Claims Music Exec Said She's 'Too Old' For Sexy Instagram Photos

“I’m a much better lover than I was 10 years ago,” the singer-songwriter says.

Bebe Rexha put one particular music executive — and anyone who thinks like him — on blast for shaming her over photos she chooses to share on social media.

The 29-year-old singer-songwriter took to Instagram on Monday to post a black-and-white mirror selfie showing her in a black bra and matching underwear. Her lengthy caption explained the inspiration behind the shot and her intention to not let our youth-obsessed world dictate how she lives her life.

"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," she explained. "I’m 29."

"I’m fed up with being put in a box," she continued. "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."

"I’m turning 30 on August 30 and you know what, I’m not running away from it," Bebe added, noting that she intends to keep true to who she is in every aspect of her life. "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," the musician concluded.

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.
