Megan Thee Stallion Bares Butt, Performs at Billboard Music Awards – The Hollywood Reporter
Megan Thee Stallion made her Billboard Music Awards debut with a suggestive performance at the 2022 show.
Wearing a black cutout bodysuit with a thong back, the rapper performed a mix of “Plan B” and “Sweetest Pie.”
She began the performance standing in front of a vertical white light. As she walked down the stairs on stage, pyrotechnics exploded behind her and the crowd cheered for the track’s more suggestive lyrics.
Mary J. Blige and Doja Cat could also be seen jumping and, in Doja’s case, singing in the audience.
When the song changed to “Sweetest Pie”, the lighting changed to a pink and purple hue as Megan was joined by dancers dressed in black.
This performance also included pyros resembling fireworks.
During the second track, Megan also repeatedly turned around to show off her barely covered back, which elicited at least one surprised look from the audience.
Earlier, Megan took home the award for Best Female Rap Artist and hailed her fellow nominees, saying that after “working hard all year and for a long time” it was “nice to be appreciated, recognized and celebrated” by his peers and supporters.
Megane revealed on his Instagram account that all of her outfits for the Sunday night show, including the racy performance ensemble, were custom Mugler.
The 2022 Billboard Music Awards aired live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on NBC starting at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. The show was also broadcast live on Peacock.
