Dear _____________ (A- list singer with the clothing store name who had a good 2018),
I understand your frustration, but industry people at a pre-Grammy party are all interested in the free food and booze and getting to leave work early while talking to people who are not their a-hole boss.
They are not going to sing a long or clap or anything like that.
They didn’t pay for the tickets.
They are probably not fans.
What you should have said is,
“I’m not just a singer.
I wrote this song and a bunch of other top 10 songs so, I’m not just some interchangeable part you probably think I am so if you want me to keep writing songs for all of your acts, you better start clapping like you care.”
See you this weekend.
Bebe Rexha slams audience for jaded response to her song: ‘I work too (expletive) hard for this’
NEW YORK (AP) — R&B singer H.E.R. gave a next-level performance, sister duo Chloe x Halle matched the greatness of their recent Super Bowl performance and pop singer Bebe Rexha went off on the crowd when they didn’t sing along to her monster hit song.
The female acts, nominated for best new artist at the Grammys, performed Thursday night at Spotify’s pre-Grammy event honoring rising newcomers.
Rexha was fiery during her performance of “Meant to Be,” her record-breaking hit song featuring country duo Florida Georgia Line. When the crowd of music industry players didn’t sing it back to her at Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, she went ballistic, f-bombs included.
“This song was No. 1 for 50 (expletive) weeks,” she said after telling her band to stop the performance. “I work too (expletive) hard for this (expletive), OK?”
Rexha then looked over to her mom and said, “My mom is like ‘please calm down.’ I love you mom. I’m calming down.” – Source
