Bebe Rexha revealed that both of her parents were diagnosed with COVID-19, though they since have recovered from the virus.
“They got sick with the coronavirus and were very ill for three weeks, and I got very nervous,” Bebe told Extra. Bebe lives in Los Angeles and she was ready to get in a car and drive across the country to New York City to take care of them, but they said not to come.
“I was thinking of doing the whole drive… to take care of them… They were so adamant about not having my brother and I there, but finally they got better. Finally they can taste food again. I’m really grateful,” she said. “I am happy that New York is getting into a much better spot and the East Coast is starting to see the light.”
Rexha also shared how she is spending her days in quarantine, saying, “I’ve been testing new recipes, cooking a lot, and being super positive and doing things that feel good for my soul, trying to stay creative… At one point, I was really bored. Now I get to do this, so I feel so much better.”
She has also been secretly working with David Guetta, explaining, “I’ve actually been writing with him a lot through Zoom. We have some amazing songs that we’ve been working on.”
Plus, Bebe has a new album. “I just finished my album, actually, and it’s in the mixing process. I’m really excited about it. It took me two years, and obviously when the coronavirus thing happened, it kinda put a stall on it… My fans are getting very frustrated, but I’m like, ‘I promise it’s gonna be worth it!’ I really love this album more than any other album.”
Bebe has released a song for the graduates of 2020 called “Here’s to 2020” explaining that, “no other generation has gone through anything like this. It’s a testament to them, like, anything that comes their way, no matter what comes our way, we’ll get through it.”
