For just a dash of context, Cara went viral in May after photos and videos from the awards show seemed to show the model latching on to the award-winning rapper. From the red carpet to the main event, Cara appeared wherever Megan Thee Stallion set foot. Many viewers found the model’s omnipresence puzzling, to say the least.
Now, Cara is setting the record straight. During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the star explained that she was invited to the show by Megan and didn’t know she’d be seated with the nominee during the show. Not only did Megan perform at the event, but she ultimately took home the award for best female rap artist.
“I really wanted to see her play and she asked me to come along with her,” Cara explained. “I didn’t know I was going to go and sit or do anything, I thought I was just going to come and watch her play. I walked in and I had a seat in the front row, and I’m like, ‘I’m not meant to be here.”
As for the red carpet shots and that one video with Doja Cat, Cara says she was just hyping up a friend. “I was helping her and I was doing it, and I was going like, ‘Yeah girl!’ I was hyping her up, being a hype woman,” Cara said, adding, “That’s what I do, I was just really excited.” The model even says she helped Megan Thee Stallion practice her acceptance speech.
She continued, “I was living my best life, but people found it a bit odd. People find me a bit odd, but that’s me. No shame.”
