To mark her 30th Birthday, Bebe Rexha released her new song & posted a topless picture.
American singer, Bebe Rexha turned 30 this Friday on August 30, and the singer decided to do something unique to mark her entrance in the third decade of her life. The ‘I’m a mess’ singer dropped a topless picture on her Instagram feed and released her new single to mark her birthday.
The monochromatic picture she shared for her 9M followers, has the blond beauty putting on a lipstick holding a mirror while lying spreadeagled on the floor wearing nothing except G-string. “This is what 30 looks like. My #BirthdaySuit Self Love,” read the caption of her picture, “Body Positivity. Unapologetically me. Pre-show stretch and lipstick application #Not20Anymore”
As mentioned in the post, “Not 20 Anymore” is her new single that she released on her birthday. The music video encompasses the idea of inspiring body-positivity. It features 20 other men and women speaking about their life graph in the 20s.
A few days before her birthday, the singer had talked about the ageism she had to face at the hand of a male music executive who targeting her age said that she was getting too old. She further elaborated that the executive went on to attack her by questioning her ways as he thinks her brand is confusing because she’s a songwriter but posts sexy images on her social media which female songwriters of her age aren’t deemed fit to do.

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.
With her new post and song, Bebe Rexha has taken a stand against the years-old practice of ageism against females and indicated that age is just a number. With every year, there are several virtues that a person adapts, as she did; a thought she emphasized upon through her birthday gifts for herself and her fans.
