Music Is Her Outlet

"When you're writing music, you have to be really honest with yourself, sometimes painfully so. [laughs] In my music, I strive for honesty. It's not taking itself so seriously. Everything I do musically is sort of tongue in cheek. That's a really helpful skill to have in acting as well. So much of what we face as actors is rejection. When you're acting, you're portraying less of yourself perhaps, right? Because you're playing a character. With music, there's no option to play a character, because it's just me," Bebe told Popculturist about her healthy outlet.

Bebe reads books. "This is a very stark contrast to Aquamarine, but my favorite book is Philip Roth's Plot Against America. HBO made a really exceptional miniseries; it captured the book perfectly," she told the publication, adding that "it's probably one of the greatest books I've ever read, and it holds a very dear place in my heart."

She Is An Activist

Bebe is an activist. "I'm really thankful for my parents. I love them dearly. I'm very close with them, and they're both very outspoken, especially my mother. From a very young age, I was taken to protests and events that had some political background or charitable aspects to them. I grew up in a very loud house when it came to politics. I grew up living with my parents and my grandparents, so there was always a discussion happening. Sometimes there were closing viewpoints. It was always an open discussion," she said. "I'm thankful that they put an emphasis on that sort of thing from a very early age because I don't think it's a choice. Sometimes it isn't the best thing that I'm so outspoken. [laughs] It can come back and hurt me a little bit, but I don't think it was ever a choice, because it was ingrained in my household."
