Bebe Rexha took to social media in an airing of grievances against the music industry, claiming she could “take down a big chunk of it.”

“I could bring down a BIG chunk of this industry,” the singer begins the diatribe against the current industry. “I AM frustrated. I have been UNDERMINED. I’ve been so quiet for the longest time. I haven’t seen the signs even though people constantly are bringing them up and they have been SO OBVIOUS. And when I have spoken up I’ve been silenced and PUNISHED by this industry.”

“Things must change or I’m telling ALL my truths,” she continues. “The good, the bad, and the ugly.” Followers were quick to ask the singer if the diatribe against the industry was a marketing ploy for her new single, “I’m the Drama.” The singer quickly replied to the post, stating, “Marketing? I have no budget for that. IM FED UP.”

“This is not just coming from a place of anger,” she continues in another post. “It’s sadness. I’m sitting in my hotel room in London crying my eyes out. I’ve felt hopeless for the longest time. I’ve been walking a lot through this city and meeting fans and they have really ignited something inside of me.”

These statements follow previous statements Bebe Rexha made about G-Eazy, following the release of their collaboration “Me, Myself & I.” Rexha called the rapper an ‘ungrateful loser’ in another diatribe, stating, “you’re lucky people are liking you again. ‘Cause I could go in on all the shitty things you’ve done and how you treated me after giving you your only real hit.”

The singer quickly deleted the post from Instagram, telling her fans that “someone from my team had me take down my Instagram story. I decided to remove it because it felt very negative and toxic. Sometimes trauma can lead us to react that way, and that period of my life was traumatizing. I am writing this because I regret taking it down and I want to say that I still stand by what I said.”
