After winning three Grammys and achieving superstardom, Megan Thee Stallion is fulfilling her late mother’s wish that she graduate from college.
“2021 finna graduate collegeeee, taking my graduation pics today,” the Hot Girl Summer wrote Monday on Instagram. “I can’t wait for y’all to see.”
Megan began her college studies at Prairie View A&M University, then when her career took off, she eventually switched to part-time, online courses to receive a bachelor’s degree in health administration from Texas Southern University.
“I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud,” the 26-year-old rapper tells People. Her mother died in March 2019 after battling brain cancer. “She saw me going to school before she passed.”
Now with a sizzling music career, plus fashion endorsements, and recently becoming a Popeyes franchise owner, Megan has special plans to utilize her degree.
“I’m gonna open an assisted-living facility and use the money that I make from rapping to open it,” she says. “Then I’m gonna let my classmates run it.”
As she prepares for graduation, Megan is ready for Halloween. She posted an Instagram photo of her dressed as Pinhead from the 1987 classic horror movie, Hellraiser, complete with needles sticking out of her head and wearing all white body paint.
“Pain has a face. Allow me to show you. Gentlemen I am pain #hottieween,” she wrote, referencing a line from the film. “Scary how good you look…even dressed as an acupuncture face white man,” commented boyfriend Pardi Fontaine.
Megan is hosting a private Halloween bash at an undisclosed location. “Y’all already know my hottieween party abt to be LIT this year,” she wrote. “I can’t wait to see everyone’s costume.”
