Megan Thee Stallion is opening up about the physical and emotional scars she experienced after last month’s shooting.
While promoting her “WAP” collaboration with Cardi B, the Houston hottie addressed the shooting involving Tory Lanez, where she was injured multiple times in the feet. During a live YouTube chat on Thursday night, Megan responded to a fan who asked how she was doing after the traumatic incident.
“I feel like this is a thing that I see every single day and I see so many women, and I see so many men talking shit about this,” responded Meg. “I felt, like, really crazy. I felt like, why did I get shot? Like, what did I do? It was insane. The shit was crazy and I feel like some people think that it’s funny and some people think that it’s a joke, and I feel like some people are saying it to get to me.”
However, the 25-year-old rapper won’t be silenced. “But I’m not ashamed of who I am and I’m not ashamed of what I’ve been through and I’m not scared to say anything about anything,” added Meg.
While recounting the harrowing experience, she said she felt betrayed by friends, but didn’t name names. “It’s not fun, bitch,” she continued. “I don’t understand. I just felt very betrayed by a friend. I felt very betrayed by all my friends. I felt very shocked, very scared.”
However, she won’t let it get her down. “But the one thing that y’all need to know about me is I’m not a person who is able to be down for a long time. I’m not a person who is…I don’t like to be victimized. I don’t like to feel like, ‘Oh my god, Megan, something’s wrong.’ I like to be upbeat. I like to be happy.”
“I feel like I always have to be a light, I feel like I always have to be an example ’cause I’ve actually seen some pretty fu**ed up things and I’ve been through some fu**ed up things and I always want people to know that pain does not last forever. Bad times don’t last forever. So I definitely always want people to see me being an example of bad things not lasting forever. Just because you go through something bad, don’t mean that that’s the time you gon’ be in forever.”
She also shared some wise advice she received from her grandmother. “My grandma always told me, ‘Don’t never let nobody steal your joy.’ So that’s the type of person I am. I’m never gonna let nobody steal my joy.”
Megan previously revealed that she had to undergo surgery after the shooting to remove the bullets. “It was super scary. It was just the worst experience of my life and it’s not funny,” she said.
The Hot Girl can be seen alongside Cardi B in their sexy video for “WAP,” which was filmed prior to the July 12 shooting.
