The flummoxed father doesn't shy away from telling his songstress daughter that the work she publishes is very close to 'pornography' and it needed to stop.
Bebe Rehxa is known for her very NSFW content. The songstress has earned her fair share of fans thanks to her provocative looks, but this is something that hasn't set well with her dad. On Monday, Rexha shared a screenshot of a conversation she had with her father Flamur Rexha which shows how dissatisfied the singer's dad is with her career. The flummoxed father doesn't shy away from telling his songstress daughter that the work she publishes is very close to 'pornography' and it needed to stop.
The screenshot of the message, which was posted on Bebe's Instagram story, reads: "You you better stop posting pornography because you make me sick I can't take this anymore, embarrassed to go in public everywhere I can go i'm very upset with you I can't believe it". The 53-year-old angered father made it clear to his famous daughter that her latest video is something that just wasn't tasteful in his eyes.
Bebe's dad migrated to America when he was just 21 years old. Flamur then went on to work as a scaffolder to support his family and settled in Brooklyn. In a 2017 interview, the songstress told interviewers that her father was against a career in music, calling singing 'the devil's career'. The singer revealed to the interviewer that her family home had a strict environment and that her father had always viewed music as a bad thing.
Looks like the singer's father is carrying the same sentiments forwards despite his daughter's immense success. When her new music video was released, Flamur made his sentiments very clear to Bebe. "My dad still isn’t talking to me after he saw my last hurrah music video," the singer wrote in a post that was published on February 17. Bebe's video for her latest song 'The Last Hurrah' features themes that are both racy as well as attention-grabbing.
It features a lot of light-versus-dark themes that explore the singer's embrace of both her devilish and angelic side. Bebe decided to up the ante with a series of skimpy costumes. Bebe can also be spotted swirling and twirling in a pair of skin-tight latex pants and making out with multiple men and women. At one point in the video, she even carries around a cat in the front of her underwear.
In all fairness, the song's video didn't settle very well with a lot of other folks who were quick to criticize the singer's racy video. But Bebe was quick to defend her really steamy video, claiming if the same kind of video had been made by a rapper, people really wouldn't have a problem with it. Bebe made it clear that she wouldn't apologize for her artistic abilities, but will save her sorries for just one person only.
"I am [a] woman who is living unapologetically. I’m not gonna be made to feel bad about making ART. And yes art to me is my beautiful ass out, boys kissing boys, girls kissing girls, crosses on my body," raged Bebe. "The only person I would apologize to for this video is god if I offended him in any way. But I wrote this song with a pure heart." She also revealed that there was a much more controversial clip that was excluded from the music video, featuring a nun smoking an illegal substance. Despite her father's harsh criticism, Bebe came to Flemur's defense when her fans lashed out against the man's harsh messages to his daughter. The singer expressed the regret she felt after posting the screenshot, which she said was only sarcastic. "I should of never have posted that screenshot. I’m disappointed in myself. I was being sarcastic," reads her post.
Here's a video of the song that's been getting Bebe so much heat:
