Surprise on the red carpet. Cardi B was unrecognizable at the arrival at the American Music Awards 2021. The artist opted for a dramatic look and completely covered her face with a golden mask, to which she matched oversized earrings. The author of the WAP hit wore a long black dress that embraced her shapes. The whole outfit of the 29-year-old rapper was designed by Schiaparelli.
The Grammy-winning artist hosted the evening, becoming the second female rapper in the show’s history to receive the honor, after Queen Latifah in 1995.
In the opening monologue, Cardi said: “I will not lie to you, I am a little nervous, I have emotions, I tremble. It eats my skin. I sweated. I might mess things up. But it will be a great night! ”
Cardi B was also nominated in three categories at the AMA 2021: Best Hip-Hop Artist, Best Hip-Hop Song (Award She Won) and Best Hip-Hop Video (Up) .
The 49th edition of the AMA awarded performances from all genres of music, and the ceremony took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
The AMA awards are voted by the fans, and the nominations are made according to the performances of the artists from the Billboard charts from September 2020 to September 2021.
