Saturday, June 8: Lardi B

pridefest_milwaukee_lardiBLardi B will headline the Dance Pavilion on Saturday, June 8.

Jenn Whitlock, also known as Lardi B, is a 28-year-old Dallas, Texas native mostly known for her three viral hits, “Bodak Jello,” “Thicky Thighday,” “They Like That I’m Fat,” and her new hit, “I’m Fluffy.”

Before Jenn became an internet sensation, she was pushing to be heard most of her life. She auditioned several times for talent contests such as American Idol, X-Factor and The Voice. Although she was turned down, she never gave up.

Jenn released her first song and music video in January 2015. The response was so positive that it pushed her to write more, which lead to releasing her first album, “Finally” in 2017.

Since Jenn has been living the double life of herself and Lardi B, she has caught the attention of some pretty big names, including Cardi B, Trina, Billboard and iHeartRadio.

While growing up, Jenn was inspired by her parents Harlan and Angela Whitlock. They introduced her to many genres and artists, such as Michael Jackson, Tracy Chapman, Stevie Ray Vaughn and more. She took her own interest in P!nk, Eminem, Joss Stone and Justin Timberlake, opening up her creativity in different styles.

Jenn is just getting started with touring the US and the world, TV projects, support for LGBTQ causes and charities, and of course, Pride 2019!
