We’re all allowed to have bad days every so often, even if you’re a chart-topping rapper named Megan Thee Stallion.
Stallion, who’s known for her “hot girl” persona and empowering music, has just announced a website full of mental health resources called Bad Bitches Have Bay Days Too, named after a lyric in her recent single, “Anxiety.”
The website is split into four sections covering various mental health topics. The first includes free online therapy platforms, the second offers mental health resources, the third includes resource directories with a focus on BIPOC communities, and the final category includes resources for the LGBTQIA+ communities.
This isn’t the first time she’s shared her passion for mental health, either. Last year, Stallion discussed losing her mother with People magazine, stating, “I’ve lost both of my parents. Now I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, who do I talk to? What do I do?’ I just started learning that it’s OK to ask for help. It’s OK to want to get therapy.”
Shortly after, on her 27th birthday, she launched the Pete and Thomas Foundation in honor of her parents, Joseph Pete, Jr. and Holly Thomas. The nonprofit organization supports charitable programs in Houston. The website for the foundation states their mission is “to catalyze resources to effect meaningful and positive change in the lives of women and children, senior citizens, and underserved communities in Houston, TX and across the globe. The foundation’s area of focus will be in the fields of education, housing, health and wellness.”
The three-time Grammy winner also graduated from the Texas Southern University with a degree in health administration in 2021, which she said she did in honor of her mother, who ultimately passed away due to brain cancer.
On her new website, quotes like “Some days I just hate everybody” and “Bounce back like bad bitches always do” emphasize the up and downs of mental health in between the links to resources for further help.
As Stallion’s fame continues to grow, her advocacy for mental health awareness is sure to continue. We're sure her parents would be proud.
