Megan Thee Stallion has been rocking the charts since she came on the scene with her viral TikTok song "Savage." The young rapper is now appearing on the cover of W Magazine and is opening up about how it feels to be a Black woman in America.
In the last few months, the Black Lives Matter movement has gripped not only America but the world. Artists and celebs are coming forward to share their own thoughts and experiences with racism.
Megan Thee Stallion talks the age of social media
As anti-racist rhetoric is becoming popular on social media, Megan Thee Stallion reveals her own experiences as a Black woman in America, and the racism she has faced.
"People have been able to hide a lot of racism, but now that we have social media, we see everything," she said to W Magazine, of which she will grace the cover for the Music Issue.
"You know, anything can go viral, so I really like how we’re able to catch these people doing these disgusting things and put ’em on blast, and people are getting fired from their jobs," she continued.
"It’s like, yeah, we see you. You like to be disgusting in private, so let us show you how to keep that same energy in public. I like that we get to call everybody out now."
Following the murder of George Floyd, protests broke out across America, and Megan was not shy about voicing her opinion on the matter.
"Why would you not speak out, or why would you not do everything you could to make a change if you know this is just wrong, in general?" she said.
"I shouldn’t have to tell you how to fix racism. I shouldn’t have to tell you not to be racist. I shouldn’t have to tell you how to help us," Megan added.
"Like, you should just genuinely feel that way. The colour of your skin does not dictate the function of your brain," she said.
Megan will have a 20-song album coming out soon, although no official release date has been set.
