The 2022 Billboard Music Awards will have more problematic artists than a Dave Chappelle show. And the show’s host, Diddy, couldn’t be happier about it. On Thursday, Diddy posted on Instagram that he personally asked for Travis Scott, whose filming at his November 2021 Astroworld festival left ten people crushed and dozens injured. This is in addition to Morgan Wallen, who was filmed saying the N-word in February 2021. “One of the things I do directly is not undo the undo,” he said. Billboard. Diddy (aka Sean Combs, aka Love, aka “Primetime Puff,” as he called himself in the interview) talked about “uncancellation” like he was Jesus cleansing lepers. “So that Morgan and Travis can come back and hit the stage again with the mindset of getting a second chance at life,” he said. “Everyone in the room has a second chance at life, you know, because we’re back inside without a mask.” We were everything canceled by the pandemic, when you think about it, so feel some empathy. (Just nobody talks to this man about Omicron sub-variants.) The night’s most acceptable performers include Megan Thee Stallion, Silk Sonic, Ed Sheeran, Florence + the Machine and Mary J. Blige, who receives the Icon Awards. Watch Diddy learn more about the cancellation when he hosts the Billboard Music Awards Sunday on NBC.
