Bebe Rexah was recently told by a male music executive that she was getting too old to be sexy. Rexah is only 29-years old.

The "Meant To Be" singer isn't holding back and told her story on Instagram with a photo of herself in a bra and panty set.

"I recently had a MALE music executive tell me that I was getting too old and that my brand was 'confusing,'" she wrote. "Because... I’m a songwriter and I post sexy pics on my Instagram and that’s not what female songwriters are suppose to do, especially for my age. I’m 29."

"I’m fed up with being put in a box," she continued. "I make my own rules. I’m tired of women getting labeled as 'hags' when they get old and guys get labeled as sexy with age. Anyways, I’m turning 30 on August 30 and you know what, I’m not running away from it."

She went on to add, "I’m not gonna lie about my age or sing songs that I feel will sell better because they sound 'younger.' I’m gonna celebrate my age because you know what, I’m wiser, I’m stronger and TRUST ME I’m a much better lover than I was 10 years ago."
