Superstar singer Bebe Rexha shocked fans Monday when she revealed her battle with bipolar disorder and shared that she was finally opening up about it because she’s “not ashamed anymore.”

“For the longest time, I didn’t understand why I felt so sick,” the 29-year-old singer tweeted earlier in the day to her millions of followers. “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.” (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)
