Turn on the air conditioner because our favorite hottie Megan Thee Stallion is one of the stars in diversityEdition of Power of Young Hollywood 2020. As a laureate, the 25-year-old rapper spoke to the magazine about her plans to develop as an artist and luminaire even in difficult times. After suffering multiple gunshot wounds in an incident with Tory Lanez, the Texa native focuses on bigger and better things as she recovers. "I'm not the type to stay down long," she told the outlet. "I don't like being sad or staying in a dark place because I know it could be the worst, but the pain and the bad things don't last long."
Instead, Megan shifts her energy to other endeavors, such as writing a screenplay for a horror film. "It will be something that will definitely blow you away; you have never seen it before," she teased. The project, which is plagued by terror, will join a long list of its successes, which impressively includes a collaboration with Houston confrom Beyoncé, who jumped on Megan's "Savage" remix in April. Her team came about four months after Megan met them Black is king Star at JAY-Z's New Year's party. "In the first five minutes of the conversation, I felt I had known her all my life," Megan said. "She treated me like a family and now I feel like a family. We talk all the time."
Hanging out with Queen Bey is one of the many advantages of fame, although there is one disadvantage that the singer "Hot Girl Summer" is still grappling with. "The only thing I don't like when I keep my eyes on you is that not all eyes are good eyes," she said. "I still want to be able to go to Walmart and buy dog food. I still want to party in the club and no one accepts me and no internet police go with super juries, & # 39; shame! & # 39; But it’s all connected to it, and you have to be prepared for employees to work in your company around the clock. "
"I have a feeling that whatever is happening has not prompted you to say something or try to make a difference, then something may be wrong with you."
Their acceptance of the deluge of fame was not without problems. While achieving star status, Megan is also pursuing a bachelor's degree in health management from Texas Southern University – a feat that had to be reconciled with her musical responsibilities. "I was late for an award ceremony because I had to finish a final," she recalled. "I remembered that I got dressed halfway to the event, so I finish the finale while my hairdresser curls my hair and people shout: & # 39; Where's Megan? & # 39; I got there and went straight to the stage. "Despite the difficulties, Megan is still determined to open an assisted living facility after completing her coursework next year.
Megan is also looking forward to making new music that is more concerned with the Black Lives Matter movement. "I have a feeling that whatever is happening has not prompted you to say something or try to make a difference, then something might be wrong with you," she said. "Although I haven't released a song with this message, I definitely plan it."
She attributes her ambition to the strong women in her life, especially her mother Holly Thomas (who was also a rapper and performed under the stage name Holly-Wood) and her great-grandmother and grandmother. Although Holly's and Megan's great-grandmother died in 2019, her legacy has continued to inspire Megan. "They were all polite women from the south, but so cheeky, smart and strong:" You don't need a man to do something for you, "she said, remembering the lessons she learned as an adult had learned. "Because they put that in me, nobody can tell me the opposite: & # 39; My mother told me that I am great, that must mean that I am great! & # 39;"
