Bhad Bhabie receives criticism over her nomination for Billboard Award:
Danielle Bregoli of “Cash Me Outside” fame has been nominated for a Billboard Music Award – alongside Cardi B and Nicki Minaj.
The 15-year-old, who goes by the stage name Bhad Bhabie, is up for the title of top rap female artist.
Danielle gained public attention when a video of her appearance on Dr Phil, where she says the catchphrase “cash me outside, how ’bout dah?” , went viral.
Her debut single These Heaux reached number 77 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Aside from two of her singles making the Billboard Hot 100, Danielle’s Bhad Bhabie YouTube channel, which has almost 4 million subscribers and features much of her music, has amassed over 204 million views between the first four videos alone.
The stats suggest Danielle’s music has been seriously popular, but some people’s reactions have been less than favourable – and a little confused.

Nominating “Catch me outside” is disrespectful to the genre. Do you know how many female rappers have put in work this past year? Dreezy, Young MA, Saweetie, Stefflondon etc…
