Rapper and internet personality Bhad Bhabie is set to perform at Fremont Theater on Friday, Nov. 16 at 8 p.m.
Bhad Bhabie, born Danielle Bregoli, gained viral attention after appearing on “Dr. Phil”, shouting “Cash me outside, how ’bout dat?” to the audience.
Bregoli first appeared on “Dr. Phil” in September 2016 when she was 13 for stealing her mother’s car.
Her debut single “These Heaux” made Bregoli, now 15, the youngest female rapper to ever appear on the Billboard top 100.
A limited amount of Meet and Greet packages are on sale for the event. The package includes VIP early entry into the event, a personal photo and a meet and greet with Bhad Bhabie, an official VIP meet and greet laminate and a specially designed Bhad Bhabie signed fanny pack.
Students had mixed feelings about the upcoming performance. Several students said they were impressed with her ability to create a career off of her viral video. One student said her strategy was smart, but that he was not excited for the concert.
“I think her business approach is really smart and exploiting her fame, but I don’t support her as an artist,” environmental earth and soil sciences freshman Tommy Gray said.
Biomedical engineering freshman Charles Cole said that Bhad Bhabie’s ability to turn her viral moment into a career was notable.
“I think it’s really cool that someone can just start out by, like, an internet video that becomes really big and can go on to make it their career,” Cole said.
Communication studies and ethnic studies sophomore Shania Hernandez said that depending on price and timing, they would consider attending the concert.
“She’s a really interesting person that catches attention, whether it’s negative attention because she’s so careless about what people think about her or positive attention, like yeah, I get it, you’re a young star coming up,” Hernandez said. “I personally somewhat enjoy the music … but I don’t think she deserved the kind of exploitation and rise to fame that she got.”
