Performing for a crowd can be tough, especially when they’re not particularly impressed or engaged. But you’d think that Bebe Rexha’s “Meant To Be” collaboration with country group Florida Georgia Line — which spent a whopping fifty weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart — would be a definite crowd pleaser.
However, that wasn’t the case at Spotify’s pre-Grammy event in 2019. When the audience failed to sing along with the tune, Rexha stopped her performance and, well, threw a bit of a tantrum. “This song was No. 1 for fifty f**king weeks,” Rexha told the crowd, adding, “I work too f**king hard for this bulls**t, OK?” The singer then looked over to her mom and said, “My mom is like, ‘Please calm down’ … I love you mom. I’m calming down.”
But she didn’t stop there. “I worked too hard for this moment. I’m from Staten Island, N.Y., and I’m standing on this stage right here,” Rexha said, before adding, “You’re going to sing the f**king words if you know the f**king song.” Tell ’em how you really feel, Bebe.
