Bebe Rexha recently graced the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine and got real in the interview.

For the cover shot, the “I’m A Mess” hitmaker is topless, only wearing black underwear and pantyhose. She has on her signature “Bebe” necklace while she covers her breasts with her arms. Bebe looks confident and happy while sparking a huge smile. In less than 24 hours, the post she shared on Instagram racked up over 700,000 likes.

In the interview for the magazine, Bebe didn’t hold back. She reminisced over a time where she thought she was going to get sexually assaulted in the studio.

“I was alone in the studio and a producer had a group of five or six guys with him. I had heard things about him from his past and I just couldn’t take it anymore. I felt like I was going to get raped. I quietly called myself a taxi from the recording booth, which was enclosed, and I got the f**k out of there. It was the worst night ever,” she revealed.

She also described the time another producer would come in and massage her feet. He would try to go above her knees and touch her thighs. When Bebe pulled her feet away, he wouldn’t take no as an answer.

“He said, ‘Nah, I’m going to do what I want’. But I was raised to never let someone touch my body if I don’t want them to.”

She credited Kesha’s mom, Pebe Sebert, as someone who helped her in the past. She recalled Sebert telling her to not work with Dr. Luke in the studio, and ended up not doing so. She stated that it was the best thing she ever did.

“Tik Tok” hitmaker Kesha accused Luke of sexual and psychological abuse, which was heavily reported in the press.

Last month, Bebe won her first MTV Video Music Award for Best Dance for her collaboration with The Chainsmokers on “Call You Mine.”
