She started rapping at the early age of 14. But when she showed her raping skills to her mother at the age of 18, her mother told her to wait until she was 21 to pursue rapping as a career. Her mother believed that her daughter’s lyrics were too sexual for her young age. She had uploaded videos of herself freestyling on the internet and her rap battle against a male opponent “cypher” went viral and she earned lots of fans and recognization while in college.
But after listening to her mother, she debuted professionally as Megan Thee Stallion with her first single “Like a Stallion” in April 2016 at the age of 21. After that, her career is only going in the uphill direction as she has released some amazing singles and albums like Wap, Good News( Megan’s debut album), Big Ole Freak, Savage Remix, Hot Girl Summer, Is It Love This Time, and many more.
She has received a lot of awards and prestige. To summarize in short freestyling is really how she made a big name for herself.
Is Megan a man?
The answer to this question is straight-up “no”. On 19th February 2021, she revealed her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine through a live video on Instagram. He is also a fellow rapper. If you watch their Instagram handles then you will see the couple sharing snaps with each other all the time.
But it is still not clear whether they have tied the knots or not. We might be able to know the answer in the future but till then stay tuned.
Now you might be wondering about how did the rumors begin. Well, Megan had posted a picture of her wearing lingerie of SavagexFenty. The lingerie brand told that by looking at the picture, she is hot enough to be the summer 2020 face.
But people had other opinions in mind as everyone is different. Even so, they went too far by bullying her by calling her masculine and a man in the comments.
So the rumors probably started with the comments and negativity. The rumors are a straight-up lie and one just be careful to not believe in such rumors.
However, Megan is strong mentally and she has learned to stand up for herself from the bullies thanks to her mother. She has inspired many women all around the world, including some of her co-stars. Handling negativity in this is very difficult if you are not strong enough.
So that’s it folk. Now you know the truth and feel free to express your opinion in the comment section.
