Megan Thee Stallion Explains Why Having A Plan B Was Never An Option For Her​

Our good sis Meg Thee Stallion had a word about the power of persistence.

As children, we all had dreams that surpassed the sky's limits and put our adult imaginations to shame. But somewhere along the line, our vision became clouded by disappointment and the plans we had for the future evolved into painful, distant memories.

With maturity, it's easy to trade-in your hopes and desires for regret and complacency but in a recent interview with Marie Claire, our good sis Megan Thee Stallion had a word about the power of persistence and revealed why having a Plan B was never really an option for her.

The rapper, who is currently pursuing a degree in Health Administration at Texas Southern, explained that while her path may be unconventional, the vision that she has for her future has always been clear. She told the publication:

"I never had a plan B; I always had two plan As. I knew I wanted to go to school, but I knew I wanted to pursue music. When you really want to do something, you're really going to put your mind to doing it. And I really want to do both. I have to do both."

Last March, Megan's mother lost her battle to brain cancer and her grandmother shortly after which sources say only intensified her hustle. Megan revealed that she owes her intense work ethic to late nights in the studio with her mom (who was also a rapper), and plans to carry out all of her plans as scheduled because she knows that's what her mother would have wanted.

"I know that women are powerful. I know that we are out here birthing people. I know that we are out here running shit, so I can't even be mad at you for thinking that we should be held to a high standard. We're the ultimate beings. We are the superior beings."

In her interview, Megan also opened up about her struggles as a sex-positive artist, and sis didn't refrain from talking her sh*t:

"A man can be as mediocre as he wants to be but still be praised. A man can talk about how he's about to do all of these drugs and then come and shoot your house up. But as soon as I say something about my vagina, it's the end of the world?"

According to Megan, men that have a problem with her sexuality are part of a much bigger problem:

"What are you really mad about? You cannot be mad about me rapping about sex. That's not what you're mad about. It's something deeper. Not only am I rapping about sex, I'm rapping about you making me feel good. I'm not rapping about licking on you. No, you're going to do what I told you to do, and I feel like sometimes that can be a little intimidating....Sometimes it's overwhelming to some men. They can't handle it, they get a little shook, they get a little scared. But I'm not going nowhere, so get used to it."

For some time now, the Human Design System has been picking up mainstream traction! And like so many other explorative journeys, the concept of Human Design took off via social media. Similar to Astrology, Human Design requires your birth time and date, and it also provides a map of sorts to help you navigate this world with purpose while being uniquely you (and tapping into your purpose). In fact, if you desire, the information can work simultaneously with Astrology.

Black women have been redefining what wellness looks like since the beginning of time. (I even have a real-life, sassy, still-walking-signifying-driving-gardening example of this via my own 92-year-old Granny, who is the epitome of manifestation and self-preservation, as she has always defined wellness on her own terms.) We continue to shift the narrative, especially when it comes to what "wellness" actually means as a Black woman in a world where it can be so hard to simply exist in fullness.

We all know what it is to love, be loved, or be in love – or at least we think we do. But what would you say if I were to tell you that so much of the love that you thought you’d been in was actually a little thing called limerence? No, it doesn’t sound as romantic – and it’s not – unless you’re into the whole Obsessed-type of love. But one might say at least one side of that dynamic might be…thrilling.
