Bebe Rexha: "It's not easy being a girl"

New York singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha has been talking about the difficult aspects of being female.

During an interview with Flash Trash, the 25-year-old Bebe spoke about the power of songwriting and how she is currently working on new material with a girl power message.

Rexha explained: “[Songwriting] usually starts out as just therapy for myself. But when I try to help myself as a form of therapy it does help others too… I’ve been writing about women and empowerment recently – a song called ‘24/7’. It’s about letting a girl have her moment. If she wants to cry, or put her lipstick on, or go dancing and feel sexy.”

She added: “It’s not easy being a girl or a woman.”

The ‘Hey Mama’ vocalist also discussed another female star she take inspiration from: Alanis Morrissette:

“‘Jagged Little Pill’ is insane and even though she had the songs she refused to be the fashion girl and didn’t fit the mould. You can do whatever the f*** you want!”

Bebe Rexha hits the road alongside Nick Jonas on his ‘Live In Concert’ tour in September.
