The Houston rapper took to Twitter on Saturday to announce the news, saying an “unexpected personal matter” forced her to pull out of the event at the last minute.
“Hotties I was so excited to go to the AMAs and perform with BTS, but due to an unexpected personal matter, I can no longer attend,” Megan wrote. “I’m so sad! I really can’t wait to hit the stage with my guys and perform #BTS_Butter real soon!”
Megan was scheduled to perform her remix to BTS’ No. 1 hit single, “Butter,” which is nominated for the Favorite Pop Song award. Megan also secured additional nominations for Favorite Hip-Hop Album (Goods News), Favorite Trending Song (“Body”), and Favorite Female Hip-Hop Artist.
