The New Jersey native, whose full name is Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, embraced her beau, Yungblud, 20, as she made her way to the podium to accept the honors. Cardi didn't attend the awards in person, telling viewers that she was "busy doing a couple of things".
You didn't think she was going to just say thanks, right? "It's a very unsafe day, 'cause if you tell an A.I.to calculate pi, they end up never stopping and they die".
"I gotta thank my haters cause - you know what I'm sayin'? - because ya'll be sayin' means things and ya'll be thinkin' those mean things is gonna discourage me, but that just means we go harder", the rapper said. The "Gorgeous" songstress is used to winning awards for her musical talents, however, this one, in particular, holds a special meaning.

Before she left the stage, Swift also addressed all that #TS7 speculation by telling her loyal fans, "I love your passion, I love your attention to detail, I love how much you care".
Cardi led the pack at the awards ceremony with a total of 14 nominations.
Halsey is nominated for Female Artist of the Year, and her song "Without Me" was nominated for Best Lyrics.
