Last night, Cardi B performed at the AVN Awards, the long-running adult video award ceremony sometimes referred to as the “Oscars of porn.” Announced back in November, Cardi was the ceremony’s first female musical guest, following AVN President Tony Rios’ announcement of an “all-female cast” for this year’s awards.
Dressed in a sparking blue bodysuit and garters, Cardi played her Invasion of Privacy songs “Bickenhead” and “She Bad” flanked by a team of backing dancers. Earlier in the night, Cardi held a private 40-minute show for a group of adult film livestreamers known as the Cam Girls, as TMZ points out. “I’m so excited for these awards…more than the Grammys,” she told the crowd.
