From New York to L.A., singer/songwriter BETS is certainly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. For those who aren’t familiar with this dynamic diva, you most certainly should be. If her cheeky titled single, “Don’t Give A Fuck,” isn’t enough for you get involved, with its bouncy sway and indie-dance beat, then perhaps you should tune into the inspiring words as to where the tantalizing track derived from. Of the blazing banger, she states, “It’s about how you feel when you’re not worried about what everyone else thinks, when you don’t care an you’re not concerned. I feel like everything in life just flows when that happens. In fact, that’s when some of the best things happen, because you’re not getting in the way of it with all of your insecurities and fears.” We couldn’t agree more.
