Megan Thee Stallion creates history by becoming the first female rapper to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Megan Thee Stallion continues to make waves as she racks up her achievements from being recognized by politicians, making hits, and winning awards to now being the face of Hot Girl Summer! This means that she is now the first rapper ever to grace the front of the iconic publication.
However, it seems that the magazine has caught wind of the change and is on board, and Megan has given her approval.
“I think they are on the forefront when it comes to diversity and inclusion because they do not fear change, they lean into it,” she said. “They see the world and have it reflect on the cover and pages inside. That is why they have been so successful.” “I remember thinking, ‘Wow, this girl looks like me!’ Here is this stunning Black woman owning her curves and it made a big impact. It made me think, maybe I can be on the cover of SI Swim one day. And guess what — I am!”
