Bebe Rexha knows that the only way to celebrate the release of her new album, “Better Mistakes,” is with tequila!
The “You Can’t Stop The Girl” singer teamed up with Casamigos Tequila for an album release party in the Hollywood Hills on Thursday, May 6. Bebe was joined by family and friends, who enjoyed specialty Casamigos cocktails and tacos while dancing to the new tunes. Rexha’s party featured a very exclusive guest list because of the pandemic. Still, she live-streamed on YouTube ahead of the official release of her music video “Break My Heart Myself” featuring Travis Barker. Tequila definitely played a factor during the fun night!
Rexha opened up to PEOPLE about how she manages her bipolar disorder while dealing with huge music milestones, like the release of her sophomore album. “I’ve learned that you have to be your own cheerleader. I wish I would’ve known that 10 years ago,” the 21-year-old singer said. “If you don’t love yourself, who the f— will?”
“Better Mistakes” is said to be an autobiographical album that highlights her confidence and vulnerability. She covers love, loss, and even mental health throughout the tracklist. Rexha was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2019. “It’s a part of me I am constantly dealing with. It’s tough,” Bebe said. The singer deals with her depression and mood swings with medication and “a lot of therapy.”
After the diagnosis, Bebe decided to open up to the fans to help others dealing with similar issues. “For the longest time, I didn’t understand why I felt so sick,” Rexha told her followers at the time, adding, “I felt lows that made me not want to leave my house or be around people and why I felt highs that wouldn’t let me sleep, wouldn’t let me stop working or creating music. Now I know why.”
“I’m bipolar and I’m not ashamed anymore,” she triumphantly exclaimed.
