Bebe Rexha is opening up about her experience with bipolar disorder for the first time ever. The 29-year-old singer revealed her diagnosis on April 15 through a series of tweets (which she also shared on Instagram), giving followers an inside look into her mental health journey.

"For the longest time, I didn't understand why I felt so sick. Why I felt lows that made me not want to leave my house or be around people and why I felt highs that wouldn't let me sleep, wouldn't let me stop working or creating music. Now I know why," she wrote. "I'm bipolar and I'm not ashamed anymore. That is all."

Bebe said she plans to channel this honesty and vulnerability into her next album, and she vows to not hold anything back. "I don't want you to feel sorry for me," she told her fans. "I just want you to accept me."
