“I felt like it helped me mature at a really young age,” she told People about her mixed-race identity.

Nominated for Best Female Hip Hop Artist at the show, the “Icy Grl” superstar donned a 2004 Dolce & Gabbana dress selected by stylist Wilford Lenov.

“I’m single. I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character,” Saweetie wrote on Twitter on March 20, 2021, after ending her two-year relationship with American rapper Quavo.

“Presents don’t band aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women. I emotionally checked out a long time ago and have walked away with a deep sense of peace and freedom. Excited for this new chapter of elevation,” she added about his infidelity.
