Megan Thee Stallion has gained a considerable spot in the hearts of her followers. However, Megan has been greatly pushed back by her concern over the past few times; it appears that she now has the ability to combat it. Megan Thee Stallion recently channeled her beauty pageant best for her performance on “SNL” about anxiety.
On October 15, Megan Thee Stallion’s performance on Saturday Night Live was here to kill. The 27-year-old rapper came back to Studio 8H to perform her song “Anxiety” for the crowd. She wore a gown that was reminiscent of a beauty pageant and accessorized with a ribbon that read “Miss Anxiety” to capture the ’80s atmosphere.
With dancers wearing sashes that read “Overwhelmed,” “Insecure,” and “Mrs. Overlooked,” Megan dazzled in a strapless sequin dress with a mermaid skirt. During the performance, the studio’s furnishings were obscured by a shimmering silver crown that emerged on the screen behind the group.
Megan Thee Stallion blasted bars from the Go Grizzly-produced song off of her album Traumazine while maintaining a flawless flow. She declared in the song to raise awareness of the mental illness.
“People call me rude ’cause I ain’t lettin’ ’em try me/Sayin’ I’m a ho ’cause I’m in love with my body/Issues, but nobody I could talk to about it/They keep sayin’ I should get help/But I don’t even know what I need.”
For the first performance, Megan’s hair and makeup were flawless and drew inspiration from the past. She had an updo that was reminiscent of the 1960s, along with her trademark dramatic eye makeup and glossy lips, which gave off strong Diana Ross and The Supremes vibes.
The Stallion came back to perform “NDA” and “Plan B” again, adding a street vibe to SNL. Meg looked stunning in a black bodysuit, thigh-high cargo boots, sunglasses, and her dancers wore crop tops made of leather. She even rapped on “Plan B,” which she has previously acknowledged was influenced by previous relationships, “Ladies, love yourself because this s— could get ugly.”
The Houston native has performed in front of a live audience at SNL before; two years ago, she did so with her popular song “Savage”. At the time, she used the stage to make a strong and moving statement about women and the Black Lives Matter movement.
“We need to protect our Black women. And love our Black women. Because at the end of the day we need our Black women. At the end of the day, we’re tired of seeing hashtags about Black men.”
Megan, real name Megan Jovan Ruth Pete, debuted in 2019 with buddy Chance The Rapper. She made her debut on the show by assisting him with a remix of his song “Handsome.” However, what’s your take on Meg’s performance? Let us know in the comments. For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty.
