Megane Thee Stallion Is Now The First Black Woman To Cover A Forbes "30 Under 30" Issue

Now that Megan Thee Stallion has graced the cover of Forbes’ annual “30 Under 30” issue, she is the first Black woman to do so.

Megan’s $13 million in 2022 earnings were primarily derived from sponsorships (with companies including Nike, Revlon, Cash App, and Popeyes), song royalties, and performances, according to the cover story interview. And the native Houstonian made it obvious that she had no intention of abdicating anytime soon.

“I can’t slow down right now,” she said. “I’ll take a break when I’m dead. I’m trying to really build something. When I start sitting, I feel like I’m not doing enough or I’m giving somebody else the opportunity to pass me.”

She also offered advice on how to stretch your money even further.

“Save Your money!” Megan tacked on. “I still haven’t bought anything stupid or crazy. I have beautiful jewelry and a pricey home, but I’m not going to buy 100 cars to replace them. As soon as I began receiving money, I spent it on my education. Make your money work for you by learning how to do so.

The year Megan has had has not been without controversy either. While she was in New York for Saturday Night Live, her house was broken into and nearly $500k worth of jewelry was stolen. She is also still embroiled in a legal dispute with her former label 1501 Entertainment over $10 million in damages, and Drake appears to have taken unprovoked shots at her on his joint album with 21 Savage, Her Loss.

“This bitch lie about getting shots, but she still she a stallion / She don’t even get the joke, but she still smiling,” he rapped on “Circo Loco,” which samples Daft Punk’s “One More Time.”

Some fans think Drake further disrespected Megan when he rapped, “Play your record, track one, ‘Kay, I heard enough,” later in the song. “Shorty say she graduated, she ain’t learn enough,” Drake allegedly said.

“I know I’m very popular but y’all gotta stop attaching weak ass conspiracy theories in bars to my name lol N-ggas nor hoes EVER address me or @ me WITH a fact or receipts,” she wrote. “I AM CLOUT BITCH keep sucking my pussy.”

“Stop using my shooting for clout bitch ass N-ggas! Since when tf is it cool to joke abt women getting shot !” she continued. “You n-ggas especially RAP N-GGAS ARE LAME! Ready to boycott bout shoes and clothes but dog pile on a black woman when she say one of y’all homeboys abused her.”
