some "Pop news" with Lara. Nice to see you all and to you. We begin with the wonderful cardi B. Ready to get back on stage after giving birth to daughter culture. It's just been announced the bow dak yellow singer will open the mtv video music awards here at New York's radio city music hall which is fitting considering she has more nominations than anyone, an astonishing ten. There's a little twist here. Fans may have been a little surprised at the news considering cardi just pulled out of the Bruno Mars world tour. Joan, my wonderful producer, has tickets. She was very upset. Listen Joan, here's the deal. She said she was pulling out of the tour to focus on motherhood. Cardi wants to make it clear, she's not singing at the show, she's just appearing.
