Rapper Megan Thee Stallion is making another detour into acting. The “Real Hot Girl” captain is set to star in a new raunchy musical from A24. Titled “D***s: The Musical”, Megan plays a boss to the two main characters who are twins looking to get reunited with their estranged parents. A24 released a trailer of the film on Thursday. The trailer featured Megan dolling out rap verses at intervals. In the clips where she appears, the Grammy-winning artist wore a suit and her hair in a long, wavy fringe.
Not New To This
Although this appears to be Megan Thee Stallion’s most fleshed-out role on television, the 28-year-old has made cameos in a handful of reputable television projects. In Starz hit show, “P-Valley,” Megan played her alter ego, Tina Snow. In Marvel’s “She-Hulk: Attorney At Law,” the rapper played herself. She has also hosted two episodes of “Saturday Night Live” and HBO’s cancelled ballroom-inspired show, Legendary.
A Return To The Limelight
Megan Thee Stallion went on a sudden hiatus in November 2022 after her Forbes cover story was published. At that time, she was involved in a legal brawl with Tory Lanez who was found guilty of shooting her in the leg. The shooting incident happened in 2020. In December 2022, Lanez was convicted of three felonies. During the trial, Megan testified that Lanez shot at the back of her feet with a handgun. While Lanez’s sentencing has been postponed to August 7, Megan The Stallion has made a return to her socials as well as work. She has even sparked dating rumors with famous soccer player, Lukaku.
In April, she appeared on the cover of Elle where she penned a heartfelt reflection on the incident.
“I don’t want to call myself a victim,” she wrote in the beginning of her piece. “As I reflect on the past three years, I view myself as a survivor, because I have truly survived the unimaginable. Not only did I survive being shot by someone I trusted and considered a close friend, but I overcame the public humiliation of having my name and reputation dragged through the mud by that individual for the entire world to see.”
