The 'Hiss' rapper talks about her journey of rebirth and resilience during her darkest time due to Tory Lanez drama and how it inspired her new studio album.

AceShowbiz - Megan Thee Stallion has entered a new era, both personally and musically. After a tumultuous year filled with legal battles, victim-blaming, and public scrutiny following the shooting incident involving former friend Tory Lanez, the "H-Town Hottie" has emerged stronger than ever.

In a recent interview with Women's Health, Megan reveals how this "rebirth" has inspired her upcoming album. She opens up about the emotional toll the past year has taken on her, admitting that she struggled with depression and isolated herself. However, with the support of therapy, she has found her strength and a renewed sense of purpose.

She recalled the backlash amid Tory Lanez drama, "I watched people build me up, tear me down, and be confused about their expectations of me. As a Black woman, as a darker Black woman, I also feel like people expect me to take the punches, take the beating, take the lashings, and handle it with grace. But I'm human."'

"Before I went onstage, I would be crying half the time because I didn't want to [perform], but I also didn't want to upset my fans. I didn't want to get [out] from under the covers."

"I stayed in my room. I would not turn the lights on. I had blackout curtains. I didn't want to see the sun. I knew I wasn't myself. It took me a while to acknowledge that I was depressed. But once I started talking to a therapist, I was able to be truthful with myself."

Megan credits her mental health journey with motivating her physically as well. She has embraced working out as a form of self-care, finding solace in activities that bring her joy and peace.

This newfound self-assurance and resilience have carried over into her music. Megan has announced plans for a new album and tour, promising to deliver a "Hot Girl Summer Tour" experience to her fans. She has already released two singles, "Cobra" and "Hiss," which feature a healing snake motif.

The rapper's commitment to mental health extends beyond her personal life. She has launched the "Pete and Thomas Foundation" and the website "Bad B**ches Have Bad Days Too," providing resources for those struggling with mental health issues.

Megan's candid portrayal of her struggles in songs like "Cobra" and "Anxiety" has sparked a discussion about mental health in hip-hop. She joins a growing number of artists who are using their platform to break down the stigma surrounding mental health and encourage others to seek help.

Through her music, advocacy, and personal journey, Megan Thee Stallion is proving that rebirth is possible. She is an inspiration to all who have faced adversity, reminding us that even in the darkest of times, we can find our inner strength and emerge stronger than ever before.
