Megan The Stallion Tries To Explain Why Sexy Rappers Get Criticized So Much

Megan also reveals what’s on her Christmas list and her New Year’s resolutions for 2021. …

Ever since breaking out in 2019 with her song “Big Ole Freak” (really late 2018, but it took a while to gain steam), Megan Thee Stallion has been both a sex symbol and a lightning rod for criticism about the unapologetically sexy image and lyrics. In a new interview with GQ about, among other things, the backlash against Cardi B and Megan’s runaway hit “WAP,” the Houston Hottie takes a stab at explaining why so many people — both men and women — are bothered by female rappers owning their sexuality.

“Some people just don’t know what to do when a woman is in control and taking ownership of her own body,” Meg hypothesizes. “I feel like for a long time men felt like they owned sex and now women are saying, ‘Hey, this is for me. I want pleasure. This is how I want it or don’t want it,’ it freaks men the hell out. It just comes from a place of fear and insecurity, like why would anyone be mad about my WAP? It belongs to me.” She certainly has a point and while even GQ’s author Jonathan Heaf has a touch of trouble in the story with his very young daughter asking what a “WAP” is, Heaf also shows dodging such questions is just as easy as changing your Spotify password.

Elsewhere in the interview, Megan reveals her favorite Christmas song (Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” naturally), her New Year’s resolutions for 2021 (“Eating healthy and maintaining my skincare regime”), and the main thing on her Christmas list, other than world peace and justice for all. “My wish would be for young women everywhere to have equal access to education and to know that they are amazing, valuable, and can accomplish whatever they put their minds to. I want all my hotties to know their power and be confident in themselves.”

Artist Spotlight

Talented reggae artist “Yeza” Is Rapidly Gaining Popularity With Her Fantastic Music

Known as Yeza, Monique Chambers is a reggae/dancehall artist from St Andrew, Jamaica. Having developed her sound through working with numerous artists/producers, Yeza started showcasing who she was as an artist, landing herself some major gigs.

Talented and hardworking artist, Yeza overcame this by honing her craft and working at constant improvement. Her creativity and ability to send thoughtful messages through musical lyrics have also built a solid foundation for the artist she is today. I had a quick interview with Yeza and you would be amazed by what her ambition and goals are. Check out the interview below.

Let’s start off by introducing yourself, you know the basics like name, age, where you’re from. As much or little as you’re comfortable sharing.

Monique Chambers artiste name Yeza. Age 31, from St Andrew Jamaica. I am an authentically cultured, bold unapologetic feminine force with a touch of grit and street; this translates to the sound of “rude girl roots” in my music which is culture meets street, always seeking to uplift the people through the message.

Talk me through your creative process. 

Starts with inspiration which can come from anywhere, I then play with Melodies and may come up with words before I write. I then write to an instrumental to create the perfect synergy. 

How do you solve productivity/scheduling problems and reduce overwhelming situations? 

Communication, meetings and also taking time out to recharge and then come back strong.

 

What’s the best advice you ever received concerning music? 

Nothing solid comes to mind. I would say it’s been more of affirmations and stuff that I’ve discovered on my own, such as; learning to understand yourself and what you want to contribute to the art is a great foundation or starting point to becoming great at what you do. 

What is still your biggest challenge? 

Balancing all the parts happening all at once. Music is a whole world by itself; the music industry has so many arms and legs that you need to tend to equally. Even with the help of my team: which I am grateful for, the attention to all the areas can become challenging at times. I’m not the biggest lover of social media, and I am not very extroverted so this can becoming challenging especially in this field.

What would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now? 

I would have just saved a lot of money for investments, it takes a lot of resources to push forward and maintain a certain level of quality. 

If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be? 

Considering my genre and style: reggae/dancehall, I would open for Damien Marley or Hempress Sativa, Sizzla Chronixx or Protoje to name a few. 

What are you focusing your time on now? 

Creating new music and executing new and improved business plans. 

How do you currently feel about the state of “Your genre” in general? 

It’s doing what it does, it’s revolving, our music is always evolving. Mento, ska, rocksteady then reggae followed by dancehall, as it was in the beginning, so it is at present. 

What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry? 

Just my understanding that this is my life’s mission. I see no other way out other than through.
