BET Awards: Cardi B Shows Baby Bump; Megan Thee Stallion, Jazmine Sullivan Take Home Trophies


The Grammy-winning star, Cardi B’s “WAP” had a new meaning at the BET Awards: winning and pregnant. The popular star debuted her baby bump during a live performance alongside husband Offset and Quavo and Takeoff of Migos. She also won video of the year for her Megan Thee Stallion-assisted No. 1 hit “WAP.” Cardi B didn’t stay to accept the honor at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, but Megan Thee Stallion rushed to the stage in a new dress to pick up the award after her performance, forgetting to thank Cardi during her speech. But the “Savage” rapper made up for it when she won best female hip-hop artist moments later. The awards show celebrated “the year of the Black women,” as actor and host Taraji P. Henson put at the top of the show. Rep. Maxine Waters said her signature phrase, “reclaiming my time” before Jazmine Sullivan hit the stage for a sultry, top-notch performance featuring fellow R&B singer Ari Lennox. Sullivan won album of the year for her critically acclaimed EP “Heaux Tales.” The first award of the night went to Andra Day, who won best actress, while Darnella Frazier, the teenager who pulled out her cellphone and began recording when she saw George Floyd being pinned to the ground by a police officer, was given the Shine a Light Award.
