Megan Thee Stallion Covers ‘TIME’s ‘100 Most Influential People of 2020’ Issue

Published: Tuesday 22nd Sep 2020 by Rashad

2019 may have seen Megan Thee Stallion win with ‘Hot Girl Summer,’ but she’s turned 2020 into a ‘Hot Girl Year’ – racking up awards, hit singles, and acclaim along the way.

All ahead of her debut album, the 25-year-old – just a year after making TIME magazine’s ‘Next List’ (as reported here) – is now the covergirl for its 2020 ‘100 Most Influential People’ tally.

With a feature accompanied by an op-ed penned by Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson, look inside to see more of Meg in the prestigious listing.

HENSON ON STALLION:

“There was something about this woman. Once you discover her, you become a fan. I don’t like to put the stigma of the word strong on Black women because I think it dehumanizes us, but she has strength—strength through vulnerability. She’s lost much of her family—her mother, her father, her grandmother—yet she is the epitome of tenacity, of pulling herself up by her bootstraps. She was shot this summer, and still people tried to tear her down.

But she’s out here still loving and being sweet. It’s invigorating to see her become a platinum-selling artist with the viral hit “Hot Girl Summer” and multiple No. 1 songs in the past year, “Savage” and “WAP.” But you would be a fool to think that’s all there is to her. She’s deep. She’s enrolled in college. She’s an entertainer. She’s a free spirit; I see that in her. The industry might try to pigeonhole her in this rap game, but she’s got a plan that’s much bigger. And we got her. I just want her to keep winning.”

    She looks HUGE! She needs a better stylist, MUA, image director (if that’s the proper term). She does not photograph well at all. She doesn’t know her angles look how huge she looks. Where’s Miss Jay when you need her???

    • Gag September 22, 2020

      Can you say anything positive??? She probably never imagined she would end up where she is now

      • Shayla Queen 👑 September 22, 2020

        I don’t think any of us imagined she would

  2. Erica September 22, 2020

      A mother who almost drops her kid, is being photographed driving with her kid on her lap and burning her gym should not be free!

    Go Meg! Love it

  5. Monica4Life September 22, 2020

    Those are awful pics. Is this a joke?

  6. Clarks0o0ñ September 22, 2020

    No album
    Has conflict with her record label, they are stopping her from releasing new music

    But she still managed to succeed
    So what’s normani’s excuse?

    Normani even started before megan

    • Flopyonce September 22, 2020

      But what’s Cümila‘s excuse for putting Sean‘s song on her album and still flopping chile?

      What’s her excuse for looking like a cross-eyed donkey?

      • Clarks0o0ñ September 22, 2020

        Honey theres no excuse
        Senorita is her song
        She wrote it and sang it

        Romance is platinum in the US.

    I think Meg is beautiful, but she looks bloated and the dress is not flattering on her. The background looks bad. They could’ve done better.

  8. Flopyonce September 22, 2020

    I absolutely adore Megan and think she’s the most talented female rapper of this generation but this cover really ain’t cute

    • Shayla Queen 👑 September 23, 2020

      Then you are dumb as rocks. But we already knew that 💋

    • SupaDupaFly September 23, 2020

      This generation is in trouble if that’s the case 😂

  9. Paulo September 22, 2020

    👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  10. Hmmm… September 23, 2020

    How many people laid eyes on these unflattering pictures before they published it and didn’t say anything

  11. Beam Me Up Scotty September 23, 2020

    Cover looks horrible. This look is not it.

  12. Wapping September 23, 2020

    Good for her, but that cover is not it.

  13. Rere September 23, 2020

    Lol, most influential people. WAP, WAP,WAP

  14. tyty September 23, 2020

    Dead at people in this comment section section acting like your fat asses have looked 10/10 during quarantine. She looks like most people who’ve gained weight look. She is just as tall as Rihanna and Ciara so what this she is huge business? The cover isn’t the best but stop shaming her body.

    • Shayla Queen 👑 September 23, 2020

      Dead at you acting like you’re above that 🤣🤣🤣

  15. DC September 23, 2020

    How is she influential???

    • Shayla Queen 👑 September 23, 2020

      For featuring on a song with Cardi BV about having BV 🤣🤣🤣 Doctors have said the lyrics to that song are literally symptoms so both of them need to sort their sexual health.

  16. Chaka September 23, 2020

    Overrated t*****
