Houston female emcee Megan Thee Stallion has recently launched a new website and mental health initiative for those struggling. Named SeizeTheAwkward.org, the ‘Savage’ artist announced the campaign on Instagram.
After uploading an advertisement, the Texas lyricist wrote, “I’ve always been told I gotta be strong. Thick-skinned. Stiff upper lip. Tough as nails. But to be everything for everybody – it wears on you. ‘Black don’t crack,’ they say. But it can. I can. We all can.”
She continued, “Y’all, it’s okay to not be okay. Reach out to a friend if you see them going through it. No matter who you are, being vulnerable is what makes us whole. Learn how to help at SeizeTheAwkward.org. And check out adBitchesHaveBadDaysToo.com for even more resources, Hotties!”
The musician openly admitted that she was struggling with her own mental health during the highly-publicised legal battle with Tory Lanez. Following her 2020 shooting, the ‘WAP’ artist became a recluse and told fans she was taking a hiatus.
However, after her recent collaboration with Cardi B for her single ‘Bongos,’ Pete is back and ready to begin providing her fans with exciting new material. Furthermore, she has revealed that she will be opening up about her mental health on her forthcoming project.
In an interview with Complex, the Houston rhymer revealed she’s currently in a very positive place emotionally, stating, “I am in such an amazing headspace. ‘m making music that I really, really love. I’m making music that I’m not about to have to fight with anybody about.”
She concluded by disclosing, “With this album, I feel like I’m getting to the meat. I’m getting to the bones. It’s my story, and I’m telling it. I’m so excited because it’s just turning the page into, like, this new chapter of my life, and I feel like the Hotties are gonna be so excited to hear it.”
