Megan Thee Stallion Is Putting Her Self-Care First And Taking A Break

Recharging is the wave.

Celebrity News

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:

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!

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
