Megan Thee Stallion was up for 3 American Music Awards and was slated to perform her chart topping hit Butter alongside the K-Pop group BTS but just announced pulling out of the show. She said she was doing so “due to an unexpected personal matter.” The AMAs responded by saying, “We will miss you, @theestallion!” Hosted by Cardi B, the show will feature performances by Olivia Rodrigo, Bad Bunny with Tainy and Juliete Venegas, Carrie Underwood and Jason Aldean, Kane Brown, New Edition, New Kids on the Block, Diplo, Måneskin, Mickey Guyton, Tyler the Creator, Walker Hayes, and Zoe Wees. The AMAs will be airing live from LA’s Microsoft Theater Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT on ABC and on Hulu the next day.
Hotties I was so excited to go to the @AMAs and perform with @BTS_official, but due to an unexpected personal matter, I can no longer attend 😭😭I’m so sad! I really can’t wait to hit the stage with my guys and perform #BTS_Butter real soon!💜

As for the personal reason she’s chosen to pull out of the show, the death of Young Dolph likely has something to do with it. She tweeted about his passing saying, “I am sooo sick rn I am in disbelief! Praying for his family and friends ! Rest In Peace to my friend a true legend dolph.” She then made a tribute on Instagram saying, “Everybody that know me knows I play this man music EVERY DAY ! He was so genuine so real so kind to me and [my manager T. Farris] always !!! Rest In Peace to a real legend ?.”
It’s always tough seeing your peers pass away and especially in such a violent manner. Her well-being is what matters. Her fans will be there for her later.
