Bebe Rexha steers clear of heavy drugs

Bebe Rexha has never messed around with heavy drugs as she prefers the quiet life.

While on stage, the blonde bombshell oozes sex appeal, but away from work Bebe relaxes on her days off with singing bowls, an inverted bell instrument played by rotating a mallet around the outside, used in some Buddhist religious practices to accompany periods of mediation.

“It sounds crazy, but that’s what I need to do to stay sane, because it’s such a crazy industry,” she told Flaunt magazine. “I’m not a crazy partier. I’ve never f**ked with heavy drugs. I can’t even deal with a hangover.”

Bebe began her career after meeting Pete Wentz in 2010, though left his project, Black Cards, two years later.

In 2013 she signed with Warner Bros. as a solo artist and started writing songs for other music stars like Selena Gomez and Eminem, before she released her debut single I Can't Stop Drinking About You.

The 29-year-old is still a fan of collaborating with other artists, including her recent work with Florida Georgia Line, but she doesn’t want the identity to pigeonhole her in that category.

“I don’t like to be stuck in any lines,” she sighed. “I just do what I want. I either fail really big or win really big. I’d rather take risks than be safe and boring. That doesn’t make hits, or change the landscape of music.”

Her debut album Expectations was released in June and features Migos star Quavo and rapper Tory Lanez.
