Megan Thee Stallion has dropped out of the 2021 American Music Awards and won’t be performing alongside BTS anymore. 

The rapper shared the news on social media, revealing she had to drop out due to “an unexpected personal matter.”

“I’m so sad! I really can’t wait to hit the stage with my guys and perform #BTS_Butter real soon!” she wrote on Twitter.

It was set to be a big performance – Megan Thee Stallion and BTS were due to debut their collaborative remix version of the latter’s hit single ‘Butter’ for the first time. After a battle with her label, she was allowed to add her own verse to ‘Butter’.

The AMAs is up for three awards at the 2021 AMAs – Favourite Female Hip Hop Artist, Favourite Hip Hop Album (Good News), and Favourite Trending Song (‘Body’). Imagine missing out on the ceremony and winning three awards on the night.

BTS are also in the running for three awards – Artist of the Year, Favourite Pop Duo or Group, and Favourite Pop Song (‘Butter’). This year’s event will be hosted by Megan’s ‘WAP’ collaborator, Cardi B.

Other guests set to perform in Megan’s wake include Coldplay, Silk Sonic, Olivia Rodrigo, and Tyler, the Creator.

In other Megan news, it was announced earlier in November that Tory Lanez won’t be offered a plea deal in the felony assault case in which he allegedly shot the rapper in 2020. After the incident in July 2020, she revealed on Instagram Live that Lanez was the person who had shot her.

“You shot me,” she said back then. “And you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs lying and shit. Stop lying. Why lie? I don’t understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you dragging it. You really fucking dragging it.”
