Megan Thee Stallion has been on a clear cut mission to reign supreme since she arrived on the scene. With her debut studio album, Good News, dropping last year, she has been going nonstop with maintaining a public persona, releasing new music, features on songs, award ceremonies, heartbreaks and love, and all the in between.
But now, sis says no more, as she is taking the time to recharge and regroup.
Posting to her social media to make the announcement, the Grammy-winning rapper shared an animated video accompanied by a computerized message which read:
"Megan Thee Stallion is recharging! Due to the demands of the Hot Girl lifestyle <Meg> has now entered a period of regeneration to prepare for what's next. ....In her absence; mgmt will manage all social posting on behalf of Thee Hot Girl Coach. [[Thee Hotties]] lead a brave //RESISTANCE in anticipation for the return of their Fearless Captain!"
This "period of regeneration" is to prepare for music festival season, where she's scheduled to perform at Rolling Loud Miami and Afro Nation Portugal in July, as well as Bonnaroo and Parklike in September.
Meg assured her fans that the moment was a regrouping period only, also adding the following:
I’ll be back when it’s time 🔥— TINA SNOW (@theestallion) April 22, 2021
Call me selfish, but I'm a little hurt by this. I love how she has interrupted music, by normalizing a woman's need to put herself first. But it looks like she is taking her own advice, which I'm all the way here for too. After all, the Savage rapper has had a tumultuous year, from her mom's untimely passing, to literally being shot by mini-men which she befriended. She's gained endorsement deals and respect and friendship from most of her peers. She has done more in a year than most artists do in there entire career and sis is tired, m'kay?!
And since we are all about self-care around here, I say hit that island and enjoy allllll of your hard work.
As someone who has personally dealt with a mother passing, I can relate to the need to take a step back. As Black women, we carry the burden of the constant need to be more than--to be better, happier, stronger. We don't often receive opportunity to be vulnerable. Even after she was shot, the music industry was forced to check themselves on why it was that the men didn't support her, or defend her. So now that she has found peace, I can't think of a better time to focus on herself.
So Meg, enjoy the breeze, the break, and the bae. We'll be right here when you get back!
