Megan Thee Stallion Is First Black Woman on the Cover of Forbes “30 Under 30”

“I want to be bigger than just my music,” Megan told Forbes. “I’m trying to really build something.”

Megan Thee Stallion just made history by becoming the first Black woman on the cover of Forbes' “30 under 30” issue.

“It’s really hard to be the first something in 2022, so ah!” Megan told Forbes.

In addition to being one of the biggest stars in the music industry and having lucrative deals with companies such as Netflix, Nike, and Popeyes, the Grammy-winning hip-hop artist also made headlines this year as an advocate for mental health. In her newest album, “Traumatize,” Megan opens up about her experiences with topics such as mental illness and grief.

When discussing the album, Megan told Forbes, “It made me feel happy that the time I did decide to be vulnerable and talk about something I was going through, it was one of the favorites from all of my fans...like its ok to not be ok and it’s ok to tell y’all I’m not ok.”

In September, Megan launched a website called “Bad Bitches Have Bad Days Too,” which helps connect people with mental health resources, such as therapy and hotlines for drug abuse, suicide, and LGBTQ+ support.

“I want to be bigger than just my music,” Megan added. “I’m trying to really build something.”
