Cardi B to Open the MTV Video Music Awards -- But She Isn't Performing

MTV is apparently trying to manage expectations for tonight’s Video Music Awards.

After spending weeks advertising Cardi B as the show’s opener, the network is now making it clear that Cardi won’t be performing any music.

via TMZ:

Sources connected to the production tell us Cardi will in fact open the VMAs Monday as has been announced, but she won’t be rockin’ the mic for MTV. We’re told she will either do a monologue or partake in some sort of skit instead.

Many speculated the show would mark Cardi’s first musical performance since giving birthto baby Kulture … but it just ain’t happening.

Speaking of Kulture … we’re told she won’t be making the trek to the show with mom either.

It’s unclear whether or not Cardi’s gig will be in the flesh or a pre-taped segment … but one thing’s for sure, fans will finally get their long overdue Cardi fix. 

This seems like some shady marketing, doesn’t it?

See you there !
