She’s one of 2020’s biggest break-out stars . . . and no we can’t pronounce her name either. So who is Beabadoobee?
The 20-year-old, half-Filipino, half-British singer/songwriter was born Bea Kristi. She came up with her stage name, Beabadoobee, quite by chance. “Long story short, I obviously didn’t expect any of this [fame] to happen, so when it came time to put my songs online, my friend, Oscar, said to me, ‘You have to choose a name.’
“I didn’t have one so I said, ‘Let’s use my Finsta (fake Instagram) name, Beabadoobee.’ Now it’s with me for the rest of my life.”
