Megan Thee Stallion is no stranger to giving back to her fans (or the Hotties as she calls them). This time she’s doing so through her new website, which provides mental health resources.
“Hotties! You know how much mental wellness means to me, so I created a hub with resources that can help when you might need a hand,” the 27-year-old rapper shared in a message alongside the website.
This isn’t the first time she has shown just how much she values mental health. She also started a charity in honor of her late parents called the Pete & Thomas Foundation, which provides mental health aid in addition to education, housing and health services.
“My family raised me to help others and give back, so I’m incredibly proud to be in a position to accomplish that goal,” she said at the time. “I have a responsibility to use my platform to make a meaningful impact in the lives of those who may not have access to resources and support services.”
Last October, the ‘Sweetest Pie” rapper appeared on Taraji P. Henson’s Facebook Watch series “Peace of Mind” to discuss undergoing therapy to manage her own mental health struggles.
“I’ve lost both of my parents. Now I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, who do I talk to? What do I do?’ I just started learning that it’s okay to ask for help. It’s okay to want to go get therapy,” she shared.
She also weighed in on mental health in the Black community.
“As a Black person, and when you think of therapy you think of ‘Oh my gosh, I’m weak,’ you think of medication, and you just think the worst. ‘That’s kind of what you see on TV too; like, therapy wasn’t even presented in the media as something that was good. Now it’s becoming safe to say, ‘Alright now, there’s a little too much going on. Somebody help me,” she added. “That’s kind of what you see on TV too; like, therapy wasn’t even presented in the media as something that was good. Now it’s becoming safe to say, ‘Alright now, there’s a little too much going on. Somebody help me.’ ”
The inspiration behind the name of the new website, fittingly called “Bad Bi***es Have Bad Days Too”, directly comes from her song “Anxiety”, which is featured on her latest album “Traumazine”. In the song, she addresses the reality of dealing with anxiety and having bad days. She also mentions her mom, who passed away from brain cancer in 2019.
