Hot girl summer may be over, but that didn’t stop Megan Thee Stallion from bringing the heat.
The acclaimed rapper has been given the prestigious honor of being named Glamour Magazine‘s Woman of the Year.
While the emphasis may be on her stunning looks – she was lensed by Kennedi Carter – she gives an equally compelling interview about her life.
In it she touches on such subjects as who influenced her, her alter ego, and using her platform for good.
Peep pics and quotes from the spread below…
On her influences:
“Queen Latifah is amazing. She is all around someone I look up to because she took it further than music. She’s an all-around businesswoman who lets me know I can like more than one thing, and I can pursue more than one thing.”
On her alter ego, Suga:
“When I’m Suga, that’s me when I’m ready to be a little bit more vulnerable and more open. It’s very hard for me to be vulnerable sometimes; it’s very hard for me to be open sometimes, especially in my music. I do try to keep my private things private. But being in the light, it’s hard to be so private. So I’m like, ‘Okay, since y’all think y’all know my business half the time, let me tell you from the source, let me tell you from the horse’s mouth.’”
On using her platform for good:
“The bigger I get, the bigger my platform gets, I start realizing that I’m not the only woman that goes through what I go through, and it doesn’t matter what scale it’s on. Mine is just public because I’m a public figure. I want to bring things to light so other women don’t feel like they have to continue to be silent.”
