The Hot Girl opened up to New York Magazine about no longer hiding her alter egos and her latest album ‘Traumazine.’

“My alter egos have been people that I had to be at those times to be like my armor, like my shield,” she said. “I had to be Hot-Girl Meg at that time. I had to be Tina Snow at that time. I had to be Megan Thee Stallion at that time. I love this album because I feel like it’s just me talking. It’s just Megan. It’s not me having to be anybody else,” said Megan to NY Magazine.

From her alter ego portrayal as “Tina Snow” to living as “Hot Girl Meg” for the past few years, Megan has decided that it’s more important for her at the current stage of her life to simply be herself with her new music.

“I can’t just let everybody tell me what they think about me,” she said. “I have to tell my own story the way I feel like it should be told. I can’t leave my fate in anybody else’s hands,” she says to New York Magazine.

She Explained How She Came Up With The Name “Traumazine”

In the interview, Megan explained where she got the name “Traumazine” came from, explaining that “everyone goes through their own trauma.”

“Everybody has gone through their own trauma in their own way, and to me, Traumazine is me facing the things that I’ve been running from about myself.”

“It’s comforting to know that other people are going through the same thing that you might be feeling. When something happens to people, they feel like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is only me. This is not normal, or I’m probably the only person in the world that feels like this.’ But to hear somebody else talking about something that you’re probably feeling, it’s more comforting and more familiar,” she added. “That’s why people resonate with hearing other people’s stories.”

She Discussed More About Her New Role In The Marvel/ Disney + Series “She-Hulk” And Her Role In An Upcoming A24 Film

Meg discussed more in detail about her new acting career and her roles in Marvel’s ‘She-Hulk’ series and in the upcoming A24 film, ‘Fucking Identical Twins.’

“When I look at them, it inspires me to take it further than just music,” she said in the interview.  “I don’t feel like I’m only going to be an actress — I feel like I’m also going to be a director, and I’m also going to be a producer.”
