Megan Thee Stallion Takes Over GQ’s Men of the Year Issue

It has been a year that the hit song “Savage” was released, followed by “WAP,” and now Megan Thee Stallion will grace the covers of GQ before her first album drops.

For GQ’s Men of The Year, three different talents took to the cover: Megan as Rapper of the Year, Trevor Noah as Newsman of the Year, and George Clooney as Icon of the Year. Megan Thee Stallion established herself last year as an artist to be reckoned with, but she took things to a whole new level this year.

She was declared one of the world’s 100 Most Influential People by Time Magazine, she released new songs that went viral again and again, and she performed on SNL for the first time. GQ describes her as “a cultural powerhouse perfectly pitched for the moment.”

On her sex-positive anthem, “WAP,” Megan states, “Sometimes people are really not comfortable enough with themselves, and I don’t think they like to watch other people be comfortable with themselves.”

In the interview, Megan tells GQ just how important her mother was to her career and life. Her mother ultimately became her manager until she passed away. She was the one who taught Megan how to act professionally in the industry and a source of wisdom for the rapper. 

With everything she’s already accomplished, it’s crazy to think she’s only 25 years old. Her first album, Good News, will drop in a few days. Make sure to read about Megan in GQ’s Rapper of The Year article, and pick up GQ’s Men of The Year issue, available November 17.
