Megan Thee Stallion Used Her Hustle To Fund Her Dream

Our favorite Hot Girl on why our coins should be protected and invested at all costs.

Celebrity News

A wise hustler once said that money is a seed, and seeds are meant to be planted, not eaten, and now more than ever, I feel that.

Your coins should be protected and invested at all costs and this is especially true for someone who is chasing their dreams. While it's easy to eat the seeds you earn, Megan Thee Stallion says that you will always see the fruits of your labor when you invest in your own growth.

In a recent interview with The New York Times, the "Savage" rapper explained that whether she was working as a bill collector, a bartender or attending college as a full-time student, she was actively using her hustle to fund her dream.

"All my life I've been a person who's had my hands in a lot of things. I was a bill collector at one point. I was a bartender. When I started rapping and making money, I was like, 'I'm going to use this to do the things I really want to do: Finish school and start my business.'"

We've always been told not to put all of our eggs in one basket, which is why Meg says she has many eggs. And many baskets. She explained:

"I know I'm going to be an artist, and I'm going do something in the medical field. I don't want to look up and be 40, and be like, 'Damn, I wish I would've done that.'"

Since the release of her recent project, stars like Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Destiny, Normani, and Tamar Braxton have been seen dancing to her hit, "Savage", and in her interview with The NY Times, the hot girl revealed that the key to her viral success was consistency:

"I had to put it out on the Internet every day and hope that it caught on. At first I wasn't thinking about going viral. I wanted people to hear me rapping because that's what I like to do."

In the interview, Meg also explained her decision to trademark "Hot Girl Summer", and how she ultimately got copycat companies to cut a check:

"Getting something trademarked is a long process. But Hot Girl Summer is my thing, it's not like LeBron trying to get 'Taco Tuesday'. [I] saw other companies were using it, and I was like, 'Thank you for your support, but I have to secure this, because this is mine.'"

While she's spent the past few years focusing on her music career, Meg says that this year, she hopes to develop another part of her dream. The rapper, who lost her mother to a brain tumor last year, explained that until she graduates from college and is able to open an assisted-living facility, she plans to help others in another way:

"This year, I'm working to show people what being a hot girl really is like. Do you know what a candy striper is? Eventually, I want to open an assisted-living facility in Houston, but before that, I want to get girls together to go to different homes or hospitals. Those people don't have anybody, and I think it'd be really cute to have a Hot Girl come visit you and volunteer."

So, if you've been rocking with this site for several years now, you might vaguely recall an article that I wrote, a couple of years back entitled, "Why You Need To Grieve Your Past Relationship". The bottom line was, if you don't make the time to go through the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance — even when it comes to the ending of a romantic relationship, you could 1) mistake a lack of thorough and proper grieving for still loving someone and/or 2) prolong the process of healing, so that you can actually move forward.

We all know that advocacy for inclusion and equality should be year-round, since we all have to be our fullest selves all day every day. Identity is a key element of doing that, and for LGBTQ+ professionals, this can include the question of coming out at work. Some may wonder whether their personal business is, well, anybody's business at work, while others might want to feel safe in the office being out, loud, and proud. Either way, coming out in the workplace is indeed an issue that not only must be addressed, but addressed appropriately.

Love is beautiful and social media is a wonderful way to showcase and spread it. However, many times it's the content with a bit of controversy or drama tied to it that gets all the double taps. But as my father once told me, "It's fine to seek drama in your art and interests, but love should make you happy and feel peace." When he said that, it stuck with me. For a long time, I think I sought out excitement in my relationships and that can lead to a lot of unhappiness or unhealthy situations.
