The songstress recorded “Nonsense” for her fifth studio album Emails I Can’t Send and became the album’s fifth single after going viral on TikTok. Throughout her Emails I Can’t Send Tour, Carpenter improvised a new set of lyrics for the outro of the fan-favorite song in each city she performed in.
At the VMAs, Carpenter ad-libbed, “He said that it’s bigger than a Moon Man / Guess that means I’m holding it with two hands / VMAs I love you, I’m a huge fan.”
The 24-year-old graced the pink carpet wearing a sparkly white gown, which complimented her blonde locks. Before her performance, she ditched the white gown and appeared in a silver Swarovski crystal fringe dress from designer Cavanagh Baker paired with knee-high white boots.
The songstress recently opened up for Taylor Swift in Mexico – who is nominated for 11 awards at the star-studded affair – including Artist of the Year and Video/Song of the Year for “Anti-Hero.”
Carpenter isn’t up for an award, but will be presenting. Other presenters for the night include fellow pop star Reneé Rapp, Fat Joe, Wyclef Jean, Halle Bailey, Dove Cameron, Chloe Bailey, Tiffany, Billy Porter, Shenseea, Thalia, Tiffany Haddish and more.
