Megan Thee Stallion is riding high — but in the midst great success, the haters are never far behind.
Despite her sexy image and raunchy lyrics, it appears to be mostly men who have a problem with Thee Stallion.
“I’m starting to see how much more ignorant men are than I thought. When you’re a woman who’s not a threat, men don’t really bother you. And then as you grow into your own and as you become somebody who doesn’t need a man or somebody who is so independent… men like that damsel in distress type of role and that’s not me,” she told Evening Standard when asked about her views on the criticism.
Meg’s raps are solid. She’s got freestyles for days. All of the major brands are queuing up for her endorsement. But even in 2021, females embracing their sexuality is uncomfortable for a lot of people.
“I feel like that’s what kind of gets under a lot of men’s skin. Like, ‘How dare she talk about her v—ina? She loves herself and she don’t need me and she’s going to take my money.’ I just feel like I make a lot of them uncomfortable and I feel like that’s my job,’ she asserts.
Meg continued, “I’m not a normal woman, I’m not a normal person, and if my un-normalness offends you, well, I’m obviously doing something right and, baby, look the other way. You can’t stop looking the other way, because you like what you see and you hate that you like what you see. That’s why you hate it, that’s why you go through all these emotions and you’re lashing out on me.”
Megan Thee Stallion is currently nominated for Hip-Hop Album of the Year (Good News) and Hip-Hop Artist of the Year, as well as Song of the Year, Best Hip-Hop Video, and Best Collaboration for “WAP.”
Meg also received nominations for Best Live Performer, Lyricist of the Year, Hustler of the Year, and Sweet 16: Best Featured Verse for “On Me (Remix)” with Lil Baby.
