Not only will she guide the night through a multitude of awards and show-stopping performances, but she will take to the stage herself. The 29-year-old star will perform "Best Friend" and "Back to the Streets" from her upcoming debut album, Pretty Bitch Music. She may be called the "ice queen," but she's sure to bring the heat. "Anything can happen at the MTV EMAs," Saweetie said in a statement, also teasing some "surprises." Saweetie Says 'We All Bleed the Same' as She Addresses Homophobia in Rap: 'We're All Equal' "Saweetie is a multi-talented force who will undoubtably light up the stage on one of music's biggest nights," said ViacomCBS' Bruce Gillmer in a statement. Saweetie is also nominated for an MTV EMA in the Best New category, alongside Giveon, Olivia Rodrigo, Rauw Alejandro, Griff and The Kid Laroi. During the MTV VMA's earlier this year, the rapper's hit "Best Friend" ft. Doja Cat took home the award for "Best Art Direction." Saweetie will also use her platform to stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community during the event, which will address the need for gay and trans civil rights worldwide in reaction to Hungary's recent passage of legislation that bans any literature in schools that has to do with homosexuality or gender transition. "We're looking forward to using the event to amplify our voices and stand in solidarity with our LGBTQ siblings," Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of MTV Entertainment Group Worldwide told The Associated Press.
