ABC censors were said to be "freaking out" over risqué performances by Jennifer Lopez (left) and Megan Thee Stallion at the 2020 American Music Awards on Sunday night.

According to Page Six, a source said Lopez, 51, whose sexy Super Bowl halftime performance triggered over 1,300 complaints about her "strip club act," was set to outdo herself in a "steamy" duet with Colombian singer Maluma.

But Lopez's AMA performance was tame by stripper industry standards.

Censors were also nervous about the impossibly scanty costume to be worn by Billboard magazine's Rapper of the Year, Megan Thee Stallion. But that turned out to be a false alarm as well. The black lacy negligee Megan wore during her sultry set was nothing television viewers haven't seen before.

This year's AMAs, hosted by Taraji P. Henson, was broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The funniest moment of the night was when Henson shook her butt at a life-size cutout of semi-retired pop singer Beyonce's face.

The most scandalous attires of the evening were pop singer Ciara Wilson and male-to-female trans actor Laverne Cox flashing a little leg.

Ciara was the first presenter at the American Music Awards. She rocked a flowing red dress with a plunging neckline and black, thigh-high hooker boots. She presented the award for Favorite Male Artist - Soul/R&B to The Weeknd, who wore stage makeup and bandages to promote a movie role.

Ciara's hair was done up in extension braids so tight that it looked like her scalp was screaming to be set free. The wife of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson completed her look with a pair of silver hoop earrings and several rings.

GQ magazine

GQ magazine has named Megan Thee Stallion Rapper of the Year. The 26-year-old "Savage" rapper was chosen from a short list of rappers who don't mumble.

Megan, who is best known for her stripper anthem "WAP" with fellow rapper Cardi B, covers GQ's 25th annual Men of the Year issue.

She said: "I want [Black women] to be sassier. I want us to demand more, be more outspoken, keep speaking and just keep demanding what you deserve."

She added: "Don't change — just get better. Grow from these situations. Don't be beating yourself up about these situations. I feel we keep this stuff in and there's some kind of way we flip it on ourselves. We didn't f--- up — we didn't do something wrong."

It isn't clear what criteria GQ used to pick the Rapper of the Year. It must be her in-your-face attitude that scored points with the judges.

She did share her personal take on the Tory Lanez shooting that made her a household name over the summer.

"Like, I never put my hands on nobody," she told GQ. "I barely even said anything to the man who shot me when I was walking away. We were literally like five minutes away from the house."

Megan Thee Stallion isn't the first woman to shoot her shot at rumored LGBT actor Michael B. Jordan.

There are numerous reports of the Black Panther star making moves on other men -- including his personal assistant who claims Jordan had a habit of parading naked around him at home.

Apparently, Megan hasn't gotten the memo or she just doesn't care.

WENN/Avalon

According to Urban Islandz, the rapper dropped a "Savage" freestyle in which she shoots her shot at the hunky actor.

"I'ma hot girl, I don't do titles/If I do date, it'll be Michael," the 25-year-old Aquarius raps.

Fans immediately speculated she was referring to the actor since the king of pop and the NBA icon are both unavailable.

Bennett Raglin/Getty Images

Megan and Michael have met at least twice this year. They were spotted sitting together in the front row at two different Coach 1941 fashion shows in February.

His body language in both photos says there's nothing to see here.

FayesVision/WENN.com

Michael has never been linked to a woman or even remotely resembling a relationship with a woman. In fact, the 33-year-old Aquarius still lives at home with his mom.

An anonymous Instagram user posted a comment under one of Michael's photos:

"I've given you two years of my life, Michael, two years! You will never find someone who's going to love you like I did."

WENN/Avalon

The actor addressed the rumors in a comment of his own, "today I got time. So look, whoever's angry, bitter, upset for whatever reason, grow the f*ck up 'cause karma's real."

He continued: "I usually take the high road. I usually don't say sh*t, I just let it roll [off] because people are going to be people. Y'all my fans. Y'all don't need to hear me ranting about some B.S. Enjoy your family, enjoy your blessings, enjoy the people you hold close and cherish that."

Question: Do you think Megan can turn Michael out?

The arraignment for Tory Lanez, the trouble singer accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion, was postponed until November.

Lanez, 28, was hit with 1 count of assault with a firearm and 1 count of possession of a loaded, unregistered gun. The hearing was postponed on Tuesday, Oct. 13, according to court records.

The musician, born Daystar Peterson, attended the hearing via phone in an L.A. County courtroom, and since the hearing was postponed, he didn't enter a plea.

Hollywood To You / BACKGRID

According to TMZ, Peterson was ordered to stay 100 yards away from the rapper, and not contact her. He was also ordered to surrender any guns he owns.

His bail was set at $190K, which he'll be posting via a bondsman present at the hearing, TMZ reported.

BACKGRID

Megan, 26, was allegedly shot in the foot during an altercation in an SUV after the pair attended a pool party in the Hollywood Hills, amid the pandemic in July.

The hearing was held on the same day Megan wrote an op-ed in The New York Times in which she spoke up for Black female victims of domestic violence.

BACKGRID

Megan said she's not afraid of being criticized. She denied being in a relationship with Peterson.

"I was recently the victim of an act of violence by a man," she wrote. "After a party, I was shot twice as I walked away from him. We were not in a relationship. Truthfully, I was shocked that I ended up in that place."

She also addressed the criticism she received for not speaking out earlier.

"My initial silence about what happened was out of fear for myself and my friends. Even as a victim. I have been met with skepticism and judgment. The way people have publicly questioned and debated whether I played a role in my own violent assault proves that my fears about discussing what happened were, unfortunately, warranted."

Tory Lanez was officially charged in connection with a shooting incident involving rapper Megan Thee Stallion.

The arrest came weeks after the singer released his album claiming his innocence. The Los Angeles County District Attorney hit the rapper with one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and one count of carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.

If convicted, Lanez faces up to 22 years behind bars.

Lanez was apprehended by police after leaving the scene of a shoot-out at a Hollywood Hills party in July. The shooting left "Savage" rapper Megan with shrapnel wounds to her foot that required medical attention.

At the time of his arrest in July, he was only charged with possession of a firearm.

Avalon/Image Press Agency

The case became a much bigger deal when Megan went public and claimed Tory, real name Daystar Peterson, was the person who shot her.

"Yes, this n***a Tory shot me. You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people to these blogs lying and s**t, stop lying!" she raged online in August.

She went on to reveal she was shot from behind as she got out of Tory's vehicle and started walking away following a heated confrontation.

Peterson's arraignment is scheduled for next week.

Megan Thee Stallion tapped rapper Young Thug for her new booty-shaking track, titled "Don't Stop."

Black Twitter has already dubbed the track "WAP" Part 2 - in reference to Megan's No. 1 song with Cardi B.

The music video theme is Alice In Wonderland. Megan recreates the "WAP" music video in which she and Cardi sashayed through a whore house, exchanging lyrics about feminine body parts.

Hip-Hop fans say Tory Lanez is dead to them after he attempted to profit off the shooting incident involving Megan Thee Stallion.

Megan, 25, claimed she was shot in the foot in July, following an argument with Tory after the pair attended a party in the Hollywood Hills.

The rapper declined to speak publicly about the shooting until he tweeted on Thursday: "To my fans … I'm sorry for my silence... but respectfully .. I got time today ... 9 PM PST."

WENN.com

While fans waited in anticipation for Tory to tell his side of the story, midnight came and the 28-year-old shared a picture of his new album cover, writing alongside it: "There is a time to stay silent . And a time to speak ... I said all I could say on this ... ALL PLATFORMS ... in 5 MINUTES."

The lack of a public apology to Megan didn't go down too well with social media users, with one writing on Instagram: "He capitalizing on the situation by releasing a song ... makes me sick."

Another user tweeted: "You're finished bro. Capitalizing for streams you gotta be apologetic this ain't it." While a third user wrote: "Tory going on live the day after the Breonna Taylor verdict to defend shooting a black woman is PEAK tone def."

Megan Thee Stallion is speaking out after one of her ex-boyfriends accused her of abusing him.

Megan, who has been linked to over a dozen men including Trey Songz and Tristan Thompson, allegedly assaulted her ex-boyfriend Karim York while on drugs.

York allegedly wrote a message accusing Megan of abusing him. In the letter, York described an anonymous woman aiming a gun at his head and attempting to strangle him.

The "WAP" rapper denied the claims on Instagram. "Stop lying on me," she said during an Instagram Live session.

The 26-year-old rapper said, "That ni**a not talkin' 'bout me. Stop puttin' ni**as on me. Stop making stories up. F*** y'all, 'cause I'mma hit you with the facts every time you tell a lie."

Megan, who is seemingly addicted to social media, continues to rage at her followers for constantly making up stories about her.

Recently, Megan was injured in the foot when Tory Lanez's gun discharged in an SUV they were both riding in.

Megan later claimed the musician shot her in the foot. Lanez was arrested in July and charged with felony possession of a weapon. He was released on bond.

Cardi B didn't hold back when a writer tweeted America needs "far more women like Melania Trump" and "far less like Cardi B."

The comment was made by political correspondent DeAnna Lorraine, who took to Twitter to remark on U.S. First Lady Melania Trump's speech during the second night of the Republican National Convention on Tuesday.

Cardi, 27, shared a vulgar picture of former model Melania from back in the day and referenced her No. 1 hit song "WAP" as she wrote: "This pic giving me 'yea you f**kin wit some wet a*s p**sy' vibes …just sayin."

Cardi is a vocal anti-Trump activist who has voiced her support for Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who recently revealed he will campaign from his basement until the 2020 presidential election in November.

The Bronx native previously took aim at Trump supporters for playing her and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP" during a recent boat party.

"WAP" was heavily criticized due to its sexually explicit lyrics, but Cardi said in a recent interview there are some words and phrases fans will never hear in her rap repertoire.

She told Australia's The Kyle and Jackie O Show that she has banned the use of "moist", "discharge" and "horchata" from her music.

Chris Brown exploded in a post on Instagram after social media users compared him to singer Tory Lanez who allegedly shot rapper Megan Thee Stallion in the foot.

Other celebrities expressed their support for the up-and-coming rapper, including fellow Houston rap legend Bun B.

"I'm from Houston," Bun B said in a video on social media. "And if somebody would've done something to Megan in this city, we would've rolled... If the man got mental health issues, get him some therapy. But he's not just gon' sit here and shoot this girl, and we not say nothin."

Megan Thee Stallion finally revealed who allegedly shot her in a video on Instagram live late Thursday.

This has been a tough week for the "WAP" rapper, who was compared to disgraced actor Jussie Smollett and accused of lying about the seriousness of her foot injury.

Megan, 25, was injured after leaving a pool party thrown by socialite Kylie Jenner in Calabasas, Calif. on July 12.

Police arrested musician Tory Lanez on the night as the alleged shooting and charged him with a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle.

Megan told police she was shot in both feet, but she chose not to disclose the name of the shooter -- until Thursday night.

She took to Instagram live to say she's not a snitch -- "BUT, I'm not finna let y'all keep playing in my face! And I'm not finna let this ni**a keep playing in my face either. So, since y'all ho*s so worried 'bout it. Yes, this ni**a Tory shot me!"

Police initially said Megan was injured by broken glass because the jagged edges of her wound did not appear to be caused by a bullet. Police are very knowledgeable about gunshot wounds.

On Wednesday, Megan posted - then deleted - a photo of her foot injury to shut down the Jussie Smollet comparisons. But the photo only raised suspicions that she may have lied about the cause of her injury.

The drama continues.

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion have teamed up with Ca$h App to give away $1 million in Twitter's biggest-ever cash prize.

The rap duo, who recently topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart with their new single "WAP," announced the giveaway on Wednesday, Aug. 19.

The ladies asked their Twitter followers to post their #Cashtags to get part of the $1 million, which is exclusively for women.

"To all everyone supporting #WAP we see you!! we're partnering with Twitter and Cash App to celebrate all the powerful women out there by giving away a total of $1 million dollars," Megan said.

Women who tweet #WAPParty along with their $Cashtag will have a chance to receive a portion of the money through Cash App.

Fans who received cash in $500 increments thanked Cardi and Megan on Twitter.com.

Cardi and Megan have come under fire over the raunchy track and its provocative video, featuring an array of famous faces including Normani, Rosalia, Rubi Rose, Sukihana, Mulatto, and Kylie Jenner playing fancy whores in a virtual mansion that features butt sculptures, breast fountains, tigers, snakes and leopards.

Although some have slammed it as degrading for sexualizing women, the stars insist the hedonistic song promotes female empowerment.

Megan Thee Stallion hit back at Internet trolls who accused her of pulling a Jussie Smollett by lying about the seriousness of her foot injury for attention.

Smollett famously lied about being attacked by two racist Trump supporters in Chicago on January 29, 2019. He was later arrested for making a false police report.

Megan, 25, said she was shot in both feet, but she left out the name of the shooter.

Megan was shot after attending a pool party thrown by Kylie Jenner in Calabasas on July 12. The rapper was in a vehicle with singer Tory Lanez and her bestie when the alleged shooting occurred.

TheHollywoodFix.com / BACKGRID

Police arrested Lanez, 28, and charged him with a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle.

Police initially believed Megan was injured by broken glass because the jagged edges of her wound did not appear to be caused by a bullet.

Police are very familiar with gunshot wounds.

As rumors swirled that Megan made up the shooting story, she took to Instagram on Wednesday to put the rumors to bed.

The "WAP" rapper shared a graphic photo of her foot injury, and wrote:

"Lol what I have learned abt majority of the people on social media is y'all like to hear bad news before good news, a lie spreads quicker than the truth, and y'all really be believing the shit Y'ALL make up."

She added that she was shot in the back of her feet while she was walking away from the shooter. He's a really great shot if her story is to be believed.

"Why would I lie abt getting shot? Why are y'all so upset that I don't wanna be in the bed sad? Why y'all upset that I can walk? I usually don't address internet bullshit but y'all people are so sick!"

She said her stitches were removed about 2 weeks ago.

She concluded, "Sorry I'm not as sad and miserable as a lot of y'all lol but ima keep being Megan Thee Mf STALLION."

Judging from the photo, it doesn't look like she was shot. But I'm not a doctor.

Hip-hop star CeeLo Green walked back his harsh criticism of hot female rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, insisting his comments were taken out of context.

The 45-year-old Gemini made headlines this week after telling Far Out magazine he's not impressed by the ladies' immoral behavior and sexed-up lyrics in their "WAP" music video.

"A lot of music today is very unfortunate and disappointing on a personal and moral level," he said. "There was once a time when we were savvy enough to code certain things. We could express to those it was meant for with the style of language we used. But now music is shameless, it is sheer savagery."

But fans dragged the pop singer, with many reminding him of his own raunchy lyrics in hit songs such as "F**k You."

Many on social media considered his remarks sexist and hypocritical toward women. On Wednesday, CeeLo took to Instagram to address the backlash, claiming it was all one big "misunderstanding".

Drew Altizer/WENN.com

In a lengthy note, he wrote, "Firstly, I am an advocate of artistic freedom and expression, as well as a fan of Nicki, Cardi & Meagan [sic]. I know most of them personally and consider Cardi & Offset family. Therefore, I would never disrespect them by any means. I acknowledge them all as powerful, beautiful and influential women...and professionals."

CeeLo went on to accuse bloggers and tabloid reporters of stirring up controversy by twisting his words.

"I wholeheartedly apologize to each of them for the inconvenience they have been caused due to a snippet of my interview being used as a headline, and in turn creating controversy and disconnect between me and these ladies as well as their fans. Know that I support everyone who is part of our community & (Black) culture. Always have and always will!"

He added: "Much love to all of the female artists who are running the game and handling their business. With Love, Lo."

Megan Thee Stallion didn't waste any time responding to singer CeeLo Green who criticized her and Cardi B's raunchy music video "WAP."

The 25-year-old up-and-coming rapper took to Twitter.com to slam CeeLo and hypocritical men who criticize her morals.

She tweeted: "Lol dudes will scream 'slob on my k***' word for word and crying [about] WAP... bye lil boy."

"Slob On My K***" is a 1999 song by Oscar award-winning rap group Three 6 Mafia about oral sex.

"A lot of music today is very unfortunate and disappointing on a personal and moral level," CeeLo said in an interview with Far Out magazine.

CeeLo recalled the days when singers and hip-hop artists used metaphors and analogies to prevent youngsters from deciphering adult content in their music.

"There was once a time when we were savvy enough to code certain things. We could express to those it was meant for with the style of language we used. But now music is shameless, it is sheer savagery."

He continued: "It's problematic, we suffer from it because there are those that have nothing to do with it, but it is assumed of everyone. You have the 'Heads of State,' like Nicki Minaj or someone who is up there... Nicki could be effective in so many other constructive ways, but it feels desperate.”

CeeLo targeted Cardi and Megan for focusing on attention-seeking and social media likes than making good music.

"A lot of music today is very unfortunate and disappointing on a personal and moral level," CeeLo said in an interview with Far Out magazine.

CeeLo continued: "Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, they are all more or less doing similar salacious gesturing to kinda get into position. I get it, the independent woman and being in control, the divine femininity and sexual expression. I get it all." He added bold feminine sexual expression "comes at what cost?."

CeeLo also tapped OG rapper Nicki Minaj to step up and be the guiding light for female rappers who have lost their way.

"You have the 'Heads of State,' like Nicki Minaj or someone who is up there in accolade: success, visibility, a platform to influence. Nicki could be effective in so many other constructive ways, but it feels desperate," he said.

Cardi and Megan Thee Stallion dropped the video for their collaboration on Thursday, Aug. 6, featuring a variety of dancers including Normani, Mulatto, and Suki.

Jenner's appearance riled Cardi's fans, who demanded her removal in a Change.org petition that was launched over the weekend, labeling Jenner a "culture vulture".

But the "Bodak Yellow" star hit back on Twitter, insisting, "Not everything is about race."

Fans were tight that Normani and the other dancers were depicted as strippers while Jenner strolls down a hallway opening a door.

"Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door. If that's not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most..." wrote one fan, prompting the hitmaker's response.

"Normani is one of the best female artist that dances like she dances her f**kin ass off!" Cardi wrote. "Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat and hook, it what makes you want to shake your ass."

She continued: "Not everything is about race. Theres issues out here in the world that is about race and I preach all the time about. This is not about f**kin race."

"Why did I put Kylie on my music video? She treated my sister and daughter so lovely at her kid's bday party," Cardi insisted in a final tweet. "Travis (Scott, Kylie's ex) and Set (Offset, Cardi's husband) are real close and Kris Jenner have given me advice on certain things I ask for and her husband real cool with mine."

Sandrarose.com gave the music video 2.5 roses, but my readers gave it 0.5 roses -- usually reserved for music videos that belong in a dumpster.
