Bebe Rexha on dealing with bipolar disorder: Putting it in a song normalises it for me
Popstar Bebe Rexha has opened about her battle with bipolar disorder, and she claims to be in a better place despite her struggle with the condition. The 31-year-old singer has also found a way to deal with the issue through her music.
"Sometimes putting it in a song normalises it for me. It's just my truth," she said.
In fact, she made a reference to her mental health in the Travis Barker-featuring track Break My Heart Myself in the new album Better Mistakes.
"I've learned that you have to be your own cheerleader. I wish I would've known that 10 years ago," the Grammy-nominated singer opened up about her condition to a magazine.
