Bebe Rexha Says 'We Need More Women Executives in the Music Business'!

Bebe Rexha keeps it chic and sophisticated while hitting the red carpet at the 2019 Music Biz Awards & Hall of Fame event held at JW Marriott Nashville on Tuesday (May 7) in Nashville, Tenn.

The 29-year-old “Last Hurrah” hit-maker was joined at the event by Kane Brown and his pregnant wife Katelyn Jae as they were both honored with Breakthrough Artist Awards.

At the event, Bebe hit the podium to accept her honor and called out for change within the music industry: “If I can leave you with one thing: we need more women executives in the music business,” Bebe told the audience (via Billboard). “I don’t see many women executives. Women executives get paid 30 percent less than men and only 15 percent of women in the music business actually run labels. The number is really staggering.”

“I will be letting you know that one day I will be running one of the biggest record labels. I will be that female,” Bebe continued. “Women deserve a chance and I will make space for them. Women will be equal to all the fuckin’ men. We need more fuckin’ women in higher spots so pay ‘em extra, give ‘em time, respect them. Women are the ones that have always taught me the most important information in my career.”
