Sean “Diddy” Combs will use his hosting and executive producer duties at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards to bring “love and forgiveness” to some previously unlovable males.

The show’s choice to include rapper Travis Scott and country singer Morgan Wallen in its star-studded performance roster was approved by the entertainment entrepreneur, 52.

Scott’s performance was “demanded” by Diddy.

“‘My brother Travis Scott needs to perform,’ I replied… In an Instagram video, Diddy said, “NBC said yes.”

In a Billboard interview, he noted, “As a musical family, none of us are saints; none of us are without problems that happen to us in life.”

“Canceling is a trend that needs to stop”

“Uncanceling the canceled is one of the things I’m doing personally”. People haven’t been talking about uncanceling, thus this is breaking news. However, the prevalent Gen Z tendency of canceling is something that needs to be addressed, he said.

“Travis had a tragedy; Morgan Wallen [used the N-word] while talking to his son,” the self-described “Primetime Puff” reminded readers. He also stated that humans make errors. Now we’re moving forward with compassion and respect for everyone who has been harmed or impacted. It’s time to let go.


He said that Morgan Wallen and Travis Scott were able to return to the stage and touch it again with the idea of getting a second chance at life. Every single person in the room is being given a second chance at life.

In 2021, both Travis Scott and Morgan Wallen’s careers took a knock

In February, a video of Wallen’s white neighbor hurling the insult while inebriated went viral. While the incident’s publicity appeared to boost his digital album and song sales, radio stations banned his tracks, and Big Loud Records suspended his contract “indefinitely,” according to NBC.

The 29-year-old singer of “Wasted on You” has been removed from the streaming site. He has been ruled ineligible for the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Television Awards.

On Instagram, he ultimately apologized for the remark, admitting the word originated from a “72-hour bender.” He went to treatment, took months off from performing, and apologized again on “Good Morning America,” but the episode had a lasting impact on him.

Meanwhile, Travis Scott, 31, has kept a low profile since ten people were killed in a stampede at his annual Astroworld Festival in Houston on Nov. 5.


Over 100 lawsuits have been filed against the “Goosebumps” rapper, the venue, and the event producers as a result of the incident.

Before the fatal incident, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said he personally cautioned Scott about “public safety” in his trailer.

When videos of fans passing out during the stampede circulated on social media, people were enraged. Scott repeatedly paused the act. But faced controversy when it continued despite crowd screams of “stop the show” and an ambulance assisting struggling supporters.

After the event, Travis Scott and Sicko Mode contributor Drake partied at Dave and Buster’s.

On Saturday, he played for the first time since Astroworld at E11EVEN nightclub in Miami, Florida, during the Miami Grand Prix.

But Diddy is well aware of all of this.

The 2022 Billboard Music Awards will air on NBC or Peacock at 8 p.m. on Sunday.
