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.

Celebrity News

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."

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
