Megan Thee Stallion has opened up about her upcoming third album and past struggles in a new interview with Women’s Health.

“I was inspired to create this album about rebirth because I feel I am becoming a new person physically and mentally,” reflected the rapper.

“I’ve always struggled to figure out how to be vulnerable and still make music that is going hard at the same time,” she added. “I’m getting into a better space with making music that is still true to myself but also true to my message. I am very much a flower, but my flower has thorns.”

“A lot of people didn’t treat me like I was human for a long time,” she went on. “I feel like everybody was always used to me being the fun and happy party girl. 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.”

Megan also spoke about her struggles with mental health, “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,” she admitted. “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 Thee Stallion released her latest album, Traumazine, in 2022. She’s recently shared the singles Cobra, Not My Fault, and Hiss.
