Bebe Rexha Opens Up About Battling Anxiety In 'Teen Vogue'

Bebe Rexha is the latest cover star for Teen Vogue‘s special music issue series!

Here’s what the 28-year-old singer/songwriter had to share with the mag:

On battling anxiety: “I cry a lot. It’s tough. I have my own therapist and I have people I talk to. It’s an everyday battle, I feel. I don’t wanna feed into it, but my lifestyle is so crazy. When I first went to my first year of college, I was so intense. I didn’t know how to handle it and be around people. I was super anxious all the time. I was anxious when I was a little girl, I just didn’t know what it was. Finally, when I figured it out, I was like, ‘Oh. Finally, I understand. I have anxiety.’”

On topping Country Music charts: “I have immigrant parents, 100% Albanian. I’m not, like, a ‘country artist.’ “The country world is very…I think they want to preserve something, and I don’t disagree with them. But I feel like it’s cool now that different artists are [joining in].”

On her upcoming song “Don’t Get Any Closer”: “It’s really true to who I am. I think I have a very hard exterior, but when somebody gets to know me, there’s a soft spot to me. It’s really hard to get to that; I don’t let many people in. That’s what that song is about. It’s very vulnerable. It’s like, I’m scared to let anybody in because you’re gonna see the real, true me and you’re not gonna like me.”
