With the MTV Video Music Awards set to take place on Monday at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, a new act has been added to the already stacked lineup. Cardi B who, along with The Carters, leads the way with 10 nominations will serve as the show opener for this year’s ceremony.
Cardi’s decision to hit the stage comes a month after the “Bodak Yellow” MC pulled out of Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic World Tour to focus on motherhood. “I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that six weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically,” she wrote on Instagram. “I also thought that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing. Not only am I just not ready physically, I’m not ready to leave my baby behind since the doctors explained it’s not healthy for her to be on the road,” she said.
On Tuesday, it was revealed that Boyz II Men, Ciara, Ella Mai, Charlie Wilson and The Green and Common Kings would serve as Mars’ supporting acts in Cardi’s place.
Along with Cardi, Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, Post Malone, Logic, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes and this year’s Michael Jackson Vanguard recipient Jennifer Lopez will grace the stage too.
