Megan Thee Stallion is on the mend after the bullets were removed from her feet.
Megan says she was “shot in both feet and I had to operate on her to get the bullets out.” She offers an update on her condition when she talks to Variety for the publication’s “Power of Young Hollywood” special.
“I’m not the type of person who can stay down for a long time,” says rapper “Savage.” “I don’t like being sad or staying in a dark place because I know it could be the worst thing that happens, but pain and bad things don’t last long.”

Also rapper Tory Lanez was present in the vehicle when Megan was shot and arrested on weapons charges. Megan and her representatives have not identified the culprit.
Megan also mentions her friendship with Beyonce, with whom she collaborated on the remix of “Savage”, as well as the Black Lives Matter tracks on her next album.
“In the first five minutes of the conversation, I felt like I’d known her my whole life,” she says of Beyonce. “She treated me like family and now I feel like family. We talk all the time.
“I feel like everything that is going on right now, if it hasn’t prompted you to speak up or try to make some kind of difference, then something might be a little bit wrong with you,” adds from BLM. “I haven’t released a song with that message yet, I definitely plan on it.”
Fun Fact: Megan nearly missed a performance at an awards show because she was finishing up a school finale.
She recalls, “I remembered halfway to dressing for the event, so I’m finishing up the finale as my stylist curls my hair and people ask me, ‘Where’s Megan?’ I got there and went straight on stage. “

That focus on education is something rapper Nicki Minaj deeply respects.
“One of my favorite things about Meg is her desire to continue her education,” says Minaj of Megan. “It is very important that women are inspired to achieve goals outside of social media, where the focus is usually on their bodies or the people they are currently dating.
“Women are more than just moms, and we can continue to show that by being goal-oriented, self-improving, and independent,” continues Minaj. “Megan is the perfect example that we can have fun and be smart at the same time.”
