Cardi B

Cardi B and Drake were both nominated for 8 American Music Awards. The AMA nominations were announced on Wednesday. Rapper XXXTentacion was nominated posthumously for Favorite Album (Soul/R&B) for his album 17.

Cardi is a first-time AMA nominee. She is currently at home nursing a large hematoma on her forehead that she suffered after security tackled her to the floor when she threw a shoe at rival rapper Nicki Minaj in NYC.

Drake will compete with Imagine Dragons, Post Malone, Ed Sheeran, and Taylor Swift for the Artist of the Year honor, while “Bodak Yellow” star Cardi faces off against Camila Cabello, Khalid, Dua Lipa and XXXTentacion for the New Artist of the Year prize.

Meanwhile, both Cardi and Drake are up for Favorite Male and Female Artist – Pop/Rock — with Drake taking on Post Malone and Ed Sheeran, while new mom Cardi B faces a tough fight in the category alongside Camila Cabello and Taylor Swift.

The 2018 AMAs will be broadcast live on Oct 18.

  • kennedy220

    I wouldn’t doubt it…there seems to always some beef started or going on before an album drop and shortly after….I remember when kid rock was talking a little smack about Beyonce….next thing I read was that he had an album coming out…..nicki’s album dropped not too long ago…I should have been writing down all the other times I heard about drama and later to read one of the involved parties had just released an album

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    These awards were so entertaining during my childhood. Dick would be so disappointed…I shant be present to see Cephus and Reeree 2018

  • hottlanta

  • http://educate-empower.org Educate2Empower Inc.

    There are only 3 major record labels (Sony, Universal, Warner) and you know who’s heading them! Just a reminder of the garbage they’re trying to sell to us and our youth as acceptable: http://www.educate-empower.org/uploads/1/0/3/0/103064148/invasion_of_privacy_lyrics.pdf.

  • MRiGOThim

  • Judge Mental Will

    nicki is bully and hater. im a big nicki fan but im real enough to acknowledge it. nicki had security to do her dirty work. for all im concern cardi can kill nicki and I’ll be happy

  • MRiGOThim

    well Cardi doesn’t identify as BLACK so i’m not rooting for tha bitch…maybe she’ll get knotted up again we will see since every fight she has she get scraped :P

  • Judge Mental Will

    not black? well im mix with white.. let me tell you she’s still considered a woman of color. You have the right to make your own decisions and I respect that. I just hope you not up for a job or promotion and dont get it because you’re not white or latin. I hope they judge you on your talent and job experience. I pray your kids dont get judged by the color of their skin. how is it we want cops to not judge us by the color of our skin , when in reality we do the same. Enjoy your night madame

  • Rayne

  • sunni_daze

    good one

  • Carrington

    I’m not taking sides in the Nicki/Cardi drama because I don’t EVER want to see two black women beating on one another in public. I AM mad that Cardi doesn’t know that she’s a millionaire now and should be moving differently though. On that note, wouldn’t it be comedy if Cardi accepted an award and said, “… be mad at ya damn self!” at the end?

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Will she be performing? Maybe she’ll perform ‘I threw a shoe’

  • http://bitchbecomesher.com Tasha Nicole

    bwahahaha, I hollered at the picture of Cardi B. lmaoooooo

  • Trace da Ace

    WOW……and Nikki is NOWHERE on the list at all??? Yall get ready for her meltdown in 5…4…3….2…1…

    cause yall know she is going to have something to say about that…smdh..also I dont watch these award shows anymore….so lackluster and boring AF.

  • Trace da Ace

  • Reina1718

  • Floriduhh Evans

    Award shows are a thing of the past…this generation don’t care about this stuff…wonder when they will stop broadcasting them ?

  • Guess Who

    sidenote: LOL..Where Nicki’s old ass on the list though? Trying to pull up on Stormy?

  • Sdot33

    Happy for Cardi

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    That picture with the knot on her forehead.

    Sandy, CHILE, you are hilarious.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Thumbs down for you. :-(
    LOL

  • Andrea Williams

    Did they really photograph Cardi B. with that infamous lump on her forehead? Lol, they couldn’t wait a few more days for the swelling to go down? #Humiliation on blast

  • Parent

    What the Bomba Knot!

  • teather

    Another indication she is a temp. If I’m wrong I will be the first to admit it, but I KNOW I’m not wrong about this young lady. I don’t know her but I know talent. She’s an entertainer, much like she did on the pole. She’s I guess funny, I never watched the show or any like it. I think ppl romanticized her based on TV. That’s fine. She rode that 15 mins, but it won’t last.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Nope. It wasn’t me. I think Cardi Bump took the photo like that.

  • Solstice
  • Alextra Ballard

    What show? Who’s funny?
