With her brash lines and the seductive way she sways her hips onstage, Megan is a huge advocate for female empowerment and showing her sexuality. In doing so, she wants to inspire others to follow suit. “We gotta break these double-standards and get women to loosen up a bit,” she told Billboard. “We gotta show them that we can do what we want to do how we want to do it. If someone doesn’t like it, they can get to stepping.”
She also spoke about the discriminatory and misogynistic messages men send her about exposing her sexuality as a woman. “It really shows how insecure a lot of these dudes are,” she continued. “Half the time it’s an up-and-coming rapper who’s trying to get a reaction so somebody can check out their music [instead]. Or some dude that’s probably been hurt before by a girl who looks like me. Or maybe a guy that I didn’t [direct message] back in 2013? I don’t know what it could be, but that’s just not my problem.”
