Check out Megan Thee Stallion, who covers the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.
Currently, up for four GRAMMYs, the feature spread arrives just weeks before the femcee and her Hotties find out whether she’ll be taking any of the coveted awards home.
Riding the wave of buzz drummed up by her debut album ‘Good News,’ Meg opened up to the publication about her journey so far, navigating the notion of being a “role model,” her forthcoming college graduation, and more.
Head below for pics and quotes…
On Her Career Goals:
“I feel like when it’s all said and done, when people want to talk about female rap … they are definitely going to have to put my name up there with the OGs.”
On Graduating With A Degree In Health Administration From Texas Southern:
“I cannot wait. I’m going to have the biggest graduation party. But when all of this [global health] happened, I’m like, ‘Wow, so nobody is going to see me walk across the stage?’ ”
On The Idea Of Being A Role Model:
“I feel like you cannot hold people to a God standard. You do not do that to human beings.”
On Her Approach To Fame & Scrutiny:
“Even though I’m not working a traditional job, I still treat it like: ‘This is work. I need to work hard for this. I want to be here. I want to do this. I want to be Megan Thee Stallion.’ I feel like I know what comes with my job. If I took everything personal, then I would probably be somewhere curled up in the corner.”
Creative Director JaQuel Knight On Meg Becoming A Pop Star Too:
“She’s become beyond the rapper. She knows where to come in on her vocals. She knows how to hop into the choreography. She knows her glam. Those are things that pop stars do.
I’ve been pushing her hard to make sure that every time we step out, it’s elevation,. And that’s been really beautiful to see because it’s not the easiest. Since she’s become the ‘Queen of the Knees,’ it’s on me to challenge her.”
On Having Ultimate Autonomy Over Her Career:
“I wake up and be Megan Thee Stallion. Can’t nobody tell me how to be the Hot Girl.”
