Bebe Rexha is getting candid about relationships.
The singer, 29, is Nylon magazine‘s April cover star and explains why she does not identify as a straight female and why she “scares” men.
“Yeah, I think I scare men… I feel like everyone’s scared of me,” she says, “because I like to say things, and they’re scared I’m going to say something about them. Sometimes I get nervous, and I say stupid things. I’ll come off really hard. Guys especially, they can’t handle me. I break every guy. I feel like I always have to be—it’s terrible to say ‘the man’ and ‘the woman’.”
But it’s not just men, it’s all about energies for Rexha: “If I want to make out with someone, I’ll just make out with them. I don’t care who you are. I’m big on energies. Sometimes I feel like I’m so masculine in my everyday life… and when I go home, I would like to not have to keep this wall up. Go home and let it all loose. Have somebody take care of me because I feel like I’m taking care of everyone around me. I would like to be taken care of…It’s really hard.”

Hardworking, ambitious, and at times anxiety-ridden, our April cover star @beberexha is Virgo AF, and believes in astrology as much as we do. “We’re very intense. We’re perfectionists. We’re critical, but we’re very loving. We’re tough on the outside, but I think we’re very mushy. Very sensitive. Very sensitive.” For more on how this empath protects her energy, head over for the full cover story at the link in bio. 💎💎💎 photo: @ramonarosales / styling: @wilfordlenov / hair: @kelseygusto / makeup: @kiranasrat / nails: @barbarawarner / video: @daniokon / producer: @luvnidleness / words: @michelleteaz / editor-in-chief: @gabriellekorn / executive editor: @kmiversen / beauty editor: @jennaroseigneri / art direction: @daniokon + @lutkie
And one thing that is important to the “Meant To Be” artist, in her relationships and personal life, is taking breaks from social media, “I have to stay off the internet. I can literally lose my mind.
“I should write a song called ‘You sit by a screen and write mean things to other people to make yourself feel better about how sh***y you feel about yourself and I pray one day you find peace but for right now you can go f**k yourself.'”
