Megan Thee Stallion is excited to become a college graduate! In the March issue of Harper's Bazaar— where she's also featured on the cover— the rapper shared why she "cannot wait" to complete her education, as well as the lesson that has helped her become more self-confident!
Megan wants to have "the biggest graduation party"
Megan is in her last semester at Texas Southern, where she's been working towards a health administration degree! She told Harper's Bazaar that her mom Holly— who passed away in 2019— "really would be on my butt" about encouraging her to pursue her education. Now that she's about to graduate though, Megan said she "cannot wait" to have "the biggest graduation party"!
"You fought through the procrastination. You fought through crazy professors. You made it home the next day from the party and still went to class," she explained. "You know what I’m saying?" However, there's one graduation tradition she'll likely be missing out now that she's a star! "I’m like, 'Wow, so nobody is going to see me walk across the stage?'" she asked.
Megan says she's "getting more comfortable" with herself
Megan also shared a valuable lesson she's learned after being in the entertainment industry, saying that she's trying not to take all the criticism she receives to heart. "If I took everything personal, then I would probably be somewhere curled up in the corner," she said.
The rapper also shared that she's working on becoming more confident with her appearance when she steps out, telling herself it's okay if she isn't all dolled up! "I’m realizing that I don’t have to be in full glam every time you see me," she explained, "because I’m just getting more comfortable with myself and more comfortable with my skin."
Megan said she's currently "in a good situation," but admits she's not used to things being as laid back as they are! "This is the calmest it’s ever been, but it was crazy for a long time," she said. "I like a little chaos in my life." Last year, the rapper performed on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live. And earlier this month, Megan penned an op-ed for The New York Times, where she spoke out about the everyday racism that Black women face!
