Bebe Rexha wants to get the respect she’s earned.
She was performing at Spotify’s pre-Grammys event honouring the the Best New Artist nominees.
While performing her song “Meant to Be”, Rexha found the audience unresponsive and not singing back, making her angry enough to stop the performance.
“This song was No. 1 for 50 fucking weeks. I work too fucking hard for this shit, OK? My Mom is like ‘please calm down.’ I love you Mom. I’m calming down. I worked too hard for this moment. I’m from Staten Island, New York, and I’m standing on this stage right here. You’re going to sing the fucking words if you know the fucking song.”
