Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, known professionally as Megan Thee Stallion (pronounced “Megan the Stallion”), is an American rapper, songwriter and actress. She first garnered attention when videos of her freestyling became popular on social media platforms such as Instagram. She signed with 1501 Certified Entertainment in 2018, and saw her mainstream breakthrough the following year with the release of her singles “Hot Girl Summer” (featuring Ty Dolla Sign and Nicki Minaj) and “Cash Shit” (featuring DaBaby); the former peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 while the latter received quadruple platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). “Cash Shit” was also included on her commercial mixtape Fever (2019), which was followed by her extended play Suga (2020)—both of which peaked within the top ten of the Billboard 200.

Megan Thee Stallion earned two number-one songs on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2020 with her single “Savage Remix” (featuring Beyoncé) and her guest appearance on Cardi B‘s single “WAP“. The former won two Grammy AwardsBest Rap Performance and Best Rap Song—while the latter became her first number-one song in several international markets, including the Billboard Global 200. Her debut studio album, Good News (2020), was met with critical and commercial success—reaching number two on the Billboard 200. It spawned the single “Body“, which made her the first female act to release three number-one songs on the Streaming Songs chart within a year. Her compilation album, Something for Thee Hotties (2021) peaked at number five on the Billboard 200 and spawned the Billboard Hot 100-top 20 single “Thot Shit“, which received a Grammy Award nomination. Her 2022 single, “Sweetest Pie” (with Dua Lipa) was met with similar success and preceded the release of her second album Traumazine (2022), which peaked at number four on the Billboard 200. Her 2024 single, “Hiss” became her first solo song to top the Billboard Hot 100 and made her the first lead female rapper to debut atop the Billboard Global 200 chart.

Early life and education

Parent – Joe Pete

Megan Jovon Ruth Pete mother, Holly Thomas, immediately moved to Houston after her birth. Thomas rapped under the name “Holly-Wood” and brought her daughter with her to recording sessions instead of putting her in daycare. Pete grew up in the South Park neighborhood of Houston and moved with her mother to Pearland at age 14, where she lived until she was 18. Pete began writing raps at age 14. When she eventually showed Thomas her rapping skills at age 18, Thomas required that Pete wait until she was 21 to pursue rapping as a career. Her mother commented that her lyrics were too sexually suggestive for her young age. Pete attended Pearland High School and graduated in 2013. Her father died during her freshman year of high school.

In 2013, while Pete was a freshman at Prairie View A&M University, she began uploading videos of herself freestyling on social media. A clip of her battling against male opponents in a “cypher” went viral. The exposure helped her gain a larger digital presence and following on social media. She garnered fans by posting her freestyles on her Instagram while in college. Pete refers to her fans as “hotties” and credits her ‘hyperactive’ fan base for her early success. After taking time off from school to pursue music, she returned home resuming her studies at Texas Southern University. She graduated on December 11, 2021 with a Bachelor of Science in health administration.

Pete adopted the stage name “Megan Thee Stallion” after she was called a “stallion” during her adolescence due to her height (5 ft 10 in (178 cm)) and “thicc” body frame; voluptuous, statuesque women in the southern United States are sometimes colloquially called “stallions”.

Artistry

Public image

Megan Thee Stallion was noted for presenting her sexuality throughout her lyrics, videos, and live performances. In an interview with Pitchfork she stated, “It’s not just about being sexy, it’s about being confident and me being confident in my sexuality.” On her Texas rap origins, she told Rolling Stone, “I don’t feel like we ever really had a female rapper come from Houston or Texas and shut shit down. So that’s where I’m coming from.” She is often regarded as a sex symbol.

Influences

Megan Thee Stallion cites her mother as her first and biggest influence. She has considered Pimp C and his 2006 solo album, Pimpalation, an influence since her childhood, admiring his talk-rap delivery and “cockiness”. Other inspirations she has mentioned are the Notorious B.I.G.Lil’ KimQueen LatifahEveThree 6 MafiaTrinaSalt-N-PepaMissy ElliottFoxy Brown and she credits Q-Tip as her mentor. She has stated in interviews that when she was younger, she would listen to her favorite rap songs from acts like Three 6 Mafia and Pimp C, and ask herself, “How good would this sound if a girl did it?”

She has also been influenced by Beyoncé. In her Grammy Awards acceptance speech with Beyoncé for “Savage”, she said: “Ever since I was little, I was like, ‘you know what? One day, I’m gonna grow up and I’m gonna be like the rap Beyoncé.’ That was definitely my goal. [..] I love her work ethic, I love the way she is, I love the way she carries herself.”

Alter egos

In multiple interviews, Megan Thee Stallion has referred to herself as “Tina Snow”, one of her alter egos and also the name of her debut EP. It was influenced by Pimp C‘s alias Tony Snow, and has similar confidence and an unapologetically sexually dominant delivery. “Hot Girl Meg” is another alter ego who is described as embodying Megan Thee Stallion’s carefree and outgoing side, which she compares to a “college, party girl”. She stated that she introduced “Hot Girl Meg” on her EP, Fever. She has also referred to herself as “Thee Hood Tyra Banks.

Trademarks

Megan originated the viral catchphrase “hot girl summer” on social media.> It is a derivative of another of her most-known catchphrases, “hot girl”, also derived from “real hot girl shit”. She first used the phrase in a tweet on April 14, 2018. It later appeared on the Fever album cover, which read, “She’s thee HOT GIRL and she’s bringing THEE HEAT.” She defined the term as “women and men being unapologetically them, just having a good-ass time, hyping up their friends, doing you.” Megan Thee Stallion officially trademarked the term “hot girl summer” in September 2019 after applying for it in July of that year. A song of the same name was released on August 9, 2019.

In addition to “hot girl” and “hot girl summer”, Megan Thee Stallion is known for her signature ad-lib which involves sticking her tongue out, creating a “creaky”, audible “agh” or “blah” sound. In August 2019, Twitter created an official emoji for this tongue symbol which could be spawned directly after the hashtag “#MeganTheeStallion”. This symbol also inspired the cover art of her EP Suga which was revealed in March 2020.

Personal life

Partner – Pardison Fontaine (2020–2023)

Megan Thee Stallion mentioned being part Creole in her songs “Cocky AF” and “Freak Nasty” as well as in a tweet in September 2017. Her mother, Holly Thomas, died in March 2019 from a longstanding cancerous brain tumor, and Megan’s great-grandmother died in the same month. She mentioned her mother’s death in her song “Flip Flop” from the album, Traumazine, released on August 12, 2022. In January 2024, fans of Nicki Minaj doxed the location of Holly Thomas’s grave before Minaj’s single “Big Foot” was released.

Megan is a self-described fan of anime and her favorites are My Hero Academia and Naruto. Manga artist Shōta Noguchi, who assists My Hero Academia creator Kōhei Horikoshi, has published several renditions of MHA character Rumi Usagiyama using Instagram photos of Megan Thee Stallion as reference. In turn, Megan Thee Stallion published photos of her 2022 Halloween costume of Usagiyama. She has previously cosplayed as MHA character Shoto Todoroki and Usagi Tsukino from Sailor Moon.

Megan Thee Stallion confirmed her relationship with fellow rapper Pardison Fontaine via Instagram Live on February 19, 2021. The pair ended their relationship in 2023.

In addition to acting as her manager, Megan’s grandmother was a major influence on her decision to study health administration and also helped foster her goal to establish assisted living facilities in her hometown of Houston.

While she has never publicly stated a particular label for her sexuality, she has continually expressed interest in women through her music.

Legal disputes

In 2015, Megan was arrested on assault charges after an incident with her ex-boyfriend at SXSW. According to Megan, she found out her boyfriend had cheated and had a baby with another woman, and that when she confronted him about it, he started “pulling and pushing” her, and she started punching him. When police asked her if her boyfriend put his hands on her, she said no. The charges against Megan were dismissed in April 2016 after her ex-boyfriend failed to show up to court.

Shooting

On July 15, 2020, Megan Thee Stallion stated that she had suffered gunshot wounds, and that she had undergone surgery to remove the bullets. Her statement countered an earlier TMZ report that she had injured her foot on broken glass three days prior when she was in a car with rap and R&B musician Tory Lanez (Daystar Peterson) and an unidentified woman. The car was pulled over by police, and Lanez was arrested on gun charges following a vehicle search.

On July 27, 2020, Megan revealed that she had been shot in both feet, and denounced rumors in an Instagram Live session where she recounted the shooting incident and cried. The following month, Megan claimed that Lanez was the person who shot her, saying, “I didn’t tell the police what happened immediately right there because I didn’t want to die.” In a statement to Variety, Megan’s attorney, Alex Spiro, claimed Lanez’s representatives had attempted to launch a “smear campaign”, using falsified messages to “peddle a false narrative” discrediting Megan. Lanez’s team denied this, stating that they would investigate whoever was behind the fake emails, then would take appropriate action. Megan later confirmed that she had been offered money by Lanez and his team to keep quiet on the incident.

On October 8, 2020, Lanez was charged with shooting Megan Thee Stallion by L.A. County prosecutors. His arraignment was scheduled on October 13; however, it was rescheduled for November 18 after Lanez’s attorney requested a continuance. Megan was issued a protection order against Lanez, directing him to stay at least 100 yards (91 m) away from her, and to not contact her. He was also ordered to surrender any guns he owns. In an op-ed for The New York Times, published on October 13, 2020, Megan addressed the shooting allegation further, writing, “Black women are still constantly disrespected and disregarded in so many areas of life. I was recently the victim of an act of violence by a man. After a party, I was shot twice as I walked away from him. We were not in a relationship. Truthfully, I was shocked that I ended up in that place.”

In April 2022, Lanez was arrested for violating the protection order relating to the case; and he was released shortly after on an increased bond of $350,000. On December 13, 2022, Megan Thee Stallion testified in Lanez’s assault trial and stated that she “wish[ed Tory] would have just shot and killed me.” On December 23, 2022, a jury convicted Lanez on three felony charges stemming from the shooting: assault with a semiautomatic handgun, having a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and gross negligence in discharging his firearm. On August 8, 2023, Tory Lanez was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the shooting.

Lawsuit and departure from 1501 Certified Entertainment

In 2020 Megan Thee Stallion filed suit against her record label 1501 Certified Entertainment to renegotiate her contract, after her management company Roc Nation found it “iffy”. She started the hashtag “#FreeTheeStallion” to raise awareness of the issue, noting that “[she did not] understand some of the verbiage” when she signed the initial contract with 1501. On March 6, 2020, she released the EP, Suga, against the wishes of 1501, after a judge granted a temporary restraining order against the label.

When Thee Stallion published Something for Thee Hotties in 2021, the record label didn’t recognize it as an album, because it has 29 minutes of new material instead of 45, so the rapper would have to release two more albums in addition to Something. On February 18, 2022, Thee Stallion filed suit against the label claiming that Something respects the definition of an album with at least 45 minutes of material.

On August 12, 2022, the rapper published the second studio album Traumazine, writing with its announcement about the lawsuit, expressing her disappointment and emotional distress at the difficulty she is experiencing in releasing her music, but ending her message to fans with the phrase “we almost out”. The week after the album’s release, the rapper filed a new complaint, seeking recognition of her performance under the contract, and also asking for $1 million in damages. The label’s law firm stated that Thee Stallion would be summoned for an in-person deposition in mid-October, and that a ruling would be issued by May 2023. On October 19, 2023, attorneys for 1501 Certified Entertainment confirmed that “Megan Thee Stallion and 1501 Certified are pleased to announce that they have mutually reached a confidential settlement to resolve their legal differences, […] As part of the arrangement, both parties have agreed to amicably part ways”.

Shortly after the legal proceedings ended, Megan founded the independent music and entertainment company Hot Girl Productions. On February 2, 2024, Thee Stallion signed a distribution deal with Warner Music Group (WMG); her masters and publishing will be released through Hot Girl.
