Megan Thee Stallion Covers Variety / Talks Beyonce & Receives Nicki Minaj Endorsement

Published: Wednesday 5th Aug 2020 by Sam

Check out Megan Thee Stallion!

The rapper stuns a-front of Variety‘s Power of Young Hollywood issue.

Beyond posing it up for the striking shoot (lensed by Orin Fleurimont), the femcee also engaged in an interview with the publication. An interview that took place nine days after she was allegedly shot in the foot by Tory Lanez.

While that subject was off the table, the 25-year-old did open up about “bad things” as well as the packed plate of positive in front of her.

Indeed, she discussed meeting Beyonce – with whom she teamed with of #1 smash ‘Savage,’ her on-going degree in Health Administration, and her new album (which is pencilled in for release later this summer).

The Houston native, whose collab with Cardi B drops this Friday, also received praise from Nicki Minaj within the feature.

Peep pics and quotes below…

On First Meeting Beyonce:

“In the first five minutes of the conversation, I felt like I’ve been knowing her all my life. She treated me like family, and now I feel like I am family. We talk all the time.”

On Being An Optimist Amidst Chaos:

“I’m not the type of person who can stay down for a long time. I don’t like to be sad or keep myself in a dark place, because I know it could be the worst thing happening, but the pain and the bad things don’t last for long”


On Juggling Her Soaring Career With Her Degree In Health Administration:

“I was late for an awards show last year because I had to finish a final,” she laughs. “I remembered halfway through getting dressed for the event, so I’m finishing the final while my hairstylist is curling my hair and people are calling like, ‘Where is Megan?’ I got there and went straight onstage.”

Nicki Minaj Contributed To The Feature, Saying Of Her ‘Hot Girl Summer’ Collaborator:

“One of my favorite things about Meg is her desire to further her education. It’s so important for women to feel inspired to achieve goals outside of social media, where the focus is usually placed on their bodies or who they’re dating at the time. Women are more than just baby mamas, and we can continue to prove that by being goal oriented, bettering ourselves and being independent. Megan is the perfect example that we can have fun and be smart at the same time.”

On Incorporating Socially Reflective Lyrics Into Her New Music:

“I feel like everything that’s going on right now, if it hasn’t moved you to speak out or try to make some type of difference, then something might be slightly wrong with you. Even though I haven’t already come out with a song with that messaging, I definitely plan on it.”

On Fame:

“The only thing I don’t like about having all eyes on you at all times is not all eyes are good eyes,” she says as a dog barks in the background. “I still want to be able to walk into Walmart and buy dog food. I still want to party in the club and nobody’s recording me and no super-judgey internet police are going, ‘Shame!’ But all that comes with it, and you have to be prepared for people to be in your business, 24/7”


Great piece!

    When will the girls realize an endorsement from Old Lady Nicki Minaj is bad luck? Doja got nickis endorsement and got cancelled and exposed for being racist. Megan got nickis endorsement and got shot in both feet. Cardi initially got nickis endorsement and then offset got caught cheating multiple times. Nickis endorsement is the kiss of death. But luckily Cardi remains unscathed career wise.

      That’s why Doja just announced how that she wants Nicki to do ANOTHR feature on an 2nd song.
      Wake up !
      All of these female rappers are foolowing Nicki’s blueprint.
      Because thay know what’s up.

        Because say so was the only hit of her career…Nicki gave Doja relevancy. Where did Doja’s follow up single land? Like #51? 🤣

        Please.. barely even artistry if it’s highly predictable. Beyoncé stood in some sort of nature with silk surrounding her arms and woc hugging her like she’s some sort of goddess. In every god damn “visual” she releases just to fail once again

    BEAUTIFUL! Come thru with the album already

  4. MegTheTranny August 5, 2020

    Her music is crap and she looks 35, not 25.

  5. Tyga Black August 7, 2020

    The pictures of Megan are beautiful as usual! I enjoyed the article, especially the part where Nicki stated that she was proud of Megan for continuing her education, showing that rappers can be smart also. Not just baby mamas and someone’s girlfriend! Hopefully she’ll focus more on her music and not trying to be with a guy in the industry. But if she does still want to date a rapper, Slim Thug would be a great choice! 😁

    Last time I checked Tylor sold 846K with no promo, no drama, no hype and no Disney backup. While your fave sold 7k

  7. Ariana for hits August 7, 2020

    Let me continue…

    . But according to new data by Seven Part, it seems like the film did not do as well as expected. So if we look at some of the top titles on Disney Plus, from August 1st to August 3rd, we’ll see that “Black is King” doesn’t even crack the top five. 🤣🤣🤣

  8. Just saying August 7, 2020

    A lot of that fear comes from worry that Bey will be replaced esp after multiple flop albums. They know Normani has the stage presence to get there. And they hate Taylor cuz taylor is always moving more units.
