Megan Thee Stallion has established herself as one of the best Hip-Hop artists in the world right now. She won four Grammys at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony and it seems the rapper is just getting started.
The rapper is also incredibly successful as she made it into Time magazine’s 100 most influential list last year and also collaborated with the likes of Beyoncé, Cardi B and many more.
As is usually the case for successful women in any profession, she has her fair share of haters and naysayers who continuously try to put her down and underplay her achievements.
While speaking to Evening Standard, Megan was asked about navigating criticism and talked about not firing back on social media. She also stated that emotionally ignorant men see her as a threat.
“I’m starting to see how much more ignorant men are than I thought. When you’re a woman who’s not a threat, men don’t really bother you,” she said. “And then as you grow into your own and as you become somebody who doesn’t need a man or somebody who is so independent… Men like that damsel in distress type of role and that’s not me. I feel like that’s what kind of gets under a lot of men’s skin.”
Like, ‘How dare she talk about her vagina? She loves herself and she don’t need me and she’s going to take my money.’ I just feel like I make a lot of them uncomfortable and I feel like that’s my job. I’m not a normal woman. I’m not a normal person, and if my un-normalness offends you, well, I’m obviously doing something right and, baby, look the other way. You can’t stop looking the other way, because you like what you see and you hate that you like what you see. That’s why you hate it, that’s why you go through all these emotions and you’re lashing out on me.”
So I’m not even mad at these men. They’re emotionally ignorant. Once they come to grips with who they are, maybe they’ll grow up.”
Megan Thee Stallion will continue to shine and that is simply something her haters will have to accept no matter what.
