Megan Thee Stallion is now the first Black woman to grace the cover of Forbes‘ annual “30 Under 30” issue.
The cover story interview discusses Megan’s $13 million earnings for 2022, which mainly came from endorsements (with brands like Nike, Revlon, Cash App and Popeyes), music royalties and performances. And the Houston native made it clear that she won’t be stopping her reign any time soon.
“I can’t slow down right now,” she said. “I’ll take a break when I’m dead. I’m trying to really build something. When I start sitting, I feel like I’m not doing enough or I’m giving somebody else the opportunity to pass me.”
She also had tips for how to make your money stretch even longer.
“Save your money!” Megan added. “I still haven’t made a stupid, crazy purchase. My jewelry is expensive, and my house was expensive, but like outside of that, I’m not buying 100 cars. As soon as I started getting money, I used it on school. Learn how to make your money work for you.” Megan’s year hasn’t come without its fair share of controversies too. Her house was robbed of nearly $500k worth of jewelry while she was in New York for Saturday Night Live, she’s still in a legal battle with her former label 1501 Entertainment with $10 million at stake, and Drake seemingly sent unprovoked shots her way on his joint album with 21 Savage, Her Loss.
“This bitch lie about getting shots, but she still she a stallion / She don’t even get the joke, but she still smiling,” he rapped on “Circo Loco,” which samples Daft Punk’s “One More Time.”
Some fans believe Drake threw more shade at Megan later in the song as well when he rapped: “Shorty say she graduated, she ain’t learn enough / Play your album, track onе, ‘kay, I heard enough.”
Not one to take disrespect quietly, Meg responded in a series of tweets.
“I know I’m very popular but y’all gotta stop attaching weak ass conspiracy theories in bars to my name lol N-ggas nor hoes EVER address me or @ me WITH a fact or receipts,” she wrote. “I AM CLOUT BITCH keep sucking my pussy.” “Stop using my shooting for clout bitch ass N-ggas! Since when tf is it cool to joke abt women getting shot !” she continued. “You n-ggas especially RAP N-GGAS ARE LAME! Ready to boycott bout shoes and clothes but dog pile on a black woman when she say one of y’all homeboys abused her.”
The much-delayed trial in her shooting case against Tory Lanez began on Monday (November 28), and hopefully the situation will be cleared up once and for all.
