Latto Twerks On Megan Thee Stallion At Halloween Party
The “Big Energy” rapper was seen donning a Candyman-inspired get-up from the Horror film revamp earlier this year, while Megan designed a scorching hot costume all her own to bring her “Houston Hottie” moniker to life.
Overall, it was an incredibly eventful Halloween for female rappers. Cardi B and Lizzo morphed into Marge Simpson from The Simpsons, while Nicki Minaj transformed into Cinderella and Kelly Rowland went all-spandex for her Catwoman get-up.

In other Megan news, the Houston rapper is getting ready to begin her criminal trial against Canadian rapper Tory Lanez. The trial — in which Lanez is accused of shooting at Megan and wounding both of her feet in July 2020 — was set to kick off in September, but was ultimately pushed back after Tory asked a judge to delay the start date due to his legal counsel being busy with other trials. It will now start at the end of November, and Lanez has since been placed on house arrest until the trial begins.
As for Latto, she recently just cooled off after a very public feud with the aforementioned Chunderella known as Nicki Minaj. The pair had exchanged words on Twitter on October 13 after the Pinkprint rapper scolded the 2023 Grammy Awards for placing her “Super Freaky Girl” single in the category of Best Pop Solo Performance rather than in any rap category.
“I have no prob being moved out the RAP category as long as we r ALL being treated FAIRLY, If [‘Super Freaky Girl’] has [2 billion views] moved out RAP then so does Big Energy,” the Queen rapper tweeted, referring to Latto’s Billboard-topping single.
“ANY1 who says diff is simply a Nicki hater or a troll. I’d actually LUV 2 c a more street record win- male OR female! IJS rightIsRight.”
Latto ultimately responded by tweeting: “Damn I can’t win for losing… all these awards/noms I can’t even celebrate.”
Things then became especially ugly once the pair started direct messaging each other, with the former referring to the latter as a “Karen.”
“This Karen has probably mentioned my name in over 100 interviews. She waited in line for Pink Friday w|her Barbie chain on, bangs, pink hair,” Nicki Minaj wrote on Twitter, “but today, scratch off decides to be silent; rather than speak up for the black woman she called her biggest inspiration.”
She then shared a DM from Latto in response to her initial Grammys complaint that read: “I agree w you however because of where we left off ion think u need to bring my name/song up to prove ur point,” referencing a recent phone call between the two of them.
Latto replied to Nicki Minaj’s tweet by calling her out for her “ongoing subtweets” while branding her a “bully” who’s “older than my mom.”
She added: “I’ve ignored countless subtweets since March and instead addressed u in the dm. You’re asking why I didn’t speak up in ur defense… it’s the same answer I gave u when u asked why I didn’t congratulate you. Ur literally older than my mom tryna be a bully @NICKIMINAJ.”
On the music front, Meg dropped off her Traumazine project in August, which bowed at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with 66,000 total album-equivalent units sold in its first week, marking Meg’s fifth consecutive Top 10 placement on the albums chart.
As for Latto, her 777 project dropped back in March and debuted at No. 15 on the Billboard 200, also marking her highest-charting project to date.
