Megan Thee Stallion Day Officially Declared In Houston For 2 May
Megan Thee Stallion has been honoured by her home city of Houston. The rapper was given the key to the city and today (2 May) has been officially declared Megan Thee Stallion day in the city.
Megan was honoured at a ceremony on Sunday (1 May) in which the Mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, along with members of Houston City Council celebrated her philanthropic achievements, which include launching the Pete and Thomas Foundation in 2021. The non-profit, set up to honour Pete’s late mother and father, focuses on programmes that address education, housing, health and wellness in Houston, Texas, and elsewhere.
“Megan Thee Stallion has an extraordinary entertainment career, but we wanted to honor her for what she does offstage to lift people’s lives in underserved communities,” Mayor Turner said while presenting Megan with the key to the city.
“She assisted people after the 2021 winter storm, during the pandemic, and helped those struggling with homelessness. I look forward to watching her grow as an artist and humanitarian.”
The date itself is significant date for Megan – her mother and grandmother were both born on 2 May. During her acceptance speech, Megan acknowledged both, saying they helped her “grow into the woman that I am today”.
“I don’t know what kind of lady I would be if granny didn’t raise me to be so kind and so giving. You could walk by these ladies’ house and they givin’ out dollars, candy — whatever they’ve got, they’re givin’ it out the door.
“And I always wanted to be just like that. I wanted to be nice like them. They made me feel so beautiful and so loved, and they made everybody they met feel just like that. So I was like, ‘When I grow up, I wanna be just like them.’”
