Bebe Rexha’s Dad Called Her Music Video ‘Stupid Pornography’ and Said He’s ‘Embarrassed’ by Her
Bebe Rexha's father isn't a fan of her latest music video.
Early this week the singer posted a screenshot of a conversation she had with her father, criticizing her "Last Hurrah" video. He slammed the video as "stupid pornography," adding that he was disappointed in her, according to a report from Entertainment Tonight.
"You better stop posting stupid pornography because you make me sick," the text started. "I can't take this anymore, embarrassed to go in public everywhere I can go. I'm upset with you, I can't believe it."
Along with the screenshot, Rexha wrote, "My dad hates me," with the face-palm emoji. Fans responded with negative comments about her dad, which left the singer with no choice but to defend him on Twitter.
"Don't say mean things about my dad please he is an amazing father," Rexha wrote.
She added, "My dad is not a bad guy. I should of never have posted that screenshot. i'm disappointed in myself. I was being sarcastic. I understand where he is coming [from] as a father and that's why the text was a bit harsh. I am upset that he still isn't speaking to me, but he is still my father."
Speaking with TMZ after the fact, the singer revealed that her father "didn't like the video, the video is a lot." She then said fans were being over-the-top in their reactions.
"My fans are getting a little too intense, they're saying some mean s--- about my dad," she said. "He might have said something a little heated in the moment. I feel dumb for showing the screenshot. I get him. I understand him. Don't talk s--- about my dad, that's my father and he loves me."
Rexha's father isn't the only one who took issue with her video, though. The "Last Hurrah" video has been marked as "sensitive" on YouTube. She addressed that issue in a tweet.
"My video was flagged as 'sensitive' on YouTube. So it can't trend now," she tweeted. "I am [a] woman who is living unapologetically. I'm not gonna be made to feel bad about making ART. And yes art to me is my beautiful ass out, boys kissing boys, girls kissing girls, crosses on my body. IF A MALE RAPPER PUT OUT THAT VIDEO OUT IT WOULD BE FINE."
Rexha added, "If I would of know I would put the rated r version of the video out, where the nun was smoking weed. The only person I would apologize to for this video is god if I offended him in any way. But I wrote this song with a pure heart. And wanted to portray how We are all fighting our temptations. No one is perfect. That's why we turn to god. God created sex. And I like sex."
