Megan Thee Stallion Thanks Late Mother During Glamour’s Woman of the Year Speech
Megan Thee Stallion took a moment at Glamour’s Women of the Year event on Monday night (Nov. 8) to thank the most important women in her life who pushed her to succeed: Her late mother, Holly Thomas, and her late great-grandmother. Upon accepting the 2021 Woman of the Year award, the “Thot Shit” rapper made an emotional speech that listed the women as her greatest inspirations in her career thus far.
“I am truly humbled to be in such incredible company. I really want to thank my mom,” Megan said, with tears streaming down her face. “I want to thank my mom because she taught me how to be the woman that I am. She was my best friend, my manager, she was my everything, and I know she’s proud of me today.”
“She was like, ‘Megan I don’t give a damn how many songs you write as long as you get that degree,’ ” the rapper continued. “So, I said, ‘You know what, I don’t give a damn how many songs I write, I’m going to stay in school because I know my mom and my big momma are watching me and that’s what they would want me to do.'” Megan is set to graduate from Texas Southern University in December of this year.
