Every hot girl knows about Megan Thee Stallion. I listen to her music when I want to feel confident and empowered for the day! Megan is not only an amazing rapper in the music industry, but she is such an icon for everyone. What makes her so successful is the way she relates to anyone! She is truly a powerful embodiment of a black woman and I believe she is proving to the world that she is capable of defying normal standards. Whether anyone listens to her music or follows her on social media, Megan Thee Stallion is an astonishing person that influences so many people to be comfortable with who they want to be.
When listening to Megan Thee Stallion, her lyrics deliver a message that showcases her vulnerability and creativity. When I heard her song “Savage” for the first time, I really liked the flow of her words and how it complemented the beats. She is just so fierce and bold with her words that it makes me want to get up and rap with her! The music industry doesn’t usually shine too much light on female rappers, but I am so happy to see that a black woman is trending in various genres!
One thing that stands out with Megan is that she is super relatable to her fans. While she was creating music, starring in music videos, and winning countless awards, she was still enrolled in college! The public went wild when she graduated from college two months ago with a degree in Health Administration! I think this really shows everyone that if you put your mind to it, then you can achieve anything you want in life.
I absolutely adore Megan’s style, hair, and makeup! She puts pieces together that are unique and make her stand out in a crowd. Being able to see her wear stunning outfits or casual clothes gives me the courage to wear whatever I want! She loves to show off her new looks on social media and award shows! She even told people that she loves to change her hair at every chance she gets. Her creativity and composure with herself in fashion are just immaculate.
“Confidence literally starts from yourself. You have to go look in the mirror at yourself. If you don’t like what you see, you’re going to give off that energy,” says Megan in an interview with Billboard.
Megan is someone who keeps it real all of the time. She doesn’t care what society may say about her because she is not built to fit that impossible mold. She glorifies the body she has and encourages others to be proud of who they are. There shouldn’t have to be a person to impress in order for you to feel happy about yourself. Society has made so many misconceptions and stereotypes about people of color and women. So, I think it is incredible to see someone who understands the odds against them and uses it as motivation to stand up against it.
Megan says, “Once you really know yourself, can’t nobody tell you nothing about you.”
