This year’s Wireless Festival kicked off in Crystal Palace Park last weekend, running over July 1-3 with A$AP Rocky, J. Cole and Tyler, The Creator headlining. Both the Finsbury Park and Birmingham NEC editions are currently underway, running concurrently until tomorrow (July 10). SZA will headline tonight’s bill at Finsbury Park, while Cardi will close out the festivities in Birmingham. Burna Boy was billed to appear at both editions, but pulled out inexplicably on Thursday (July 7).

Meanwhile, Megan’s performance of ‘WAP’ at this year’s Coachella was subject to censorship on the Chinese social media and messaging app WeChat. Users who tuned in to the livestream of Megan’s set, which was not legally broadcast in China, were greeted with the sight of the platform’s censors attempting – and largely failing –to block out aspects of the performance.

‘WAP’ will appear on Cardi’s forthcoming second studio album, which is yet to be formally announced, but expected to arrive sometime in 2022. Last month, she responded to the criticism she received after confirming that ‘WAP’ – as well as last year’s ‘Up’ – would appear on the album. “Imagine me not putting my OWN records on my album,” she tweeted, responding to users that alleged she would only include the two songs to take advantage of chart certifications.

Also due to be featured on Cardi’s new album is the Kanye West and Lil Durk-assisted ‘Hot Shit’, which she dropped at the start of July. While an official release date for the album has yet to be revealed, Cardi confirmed in May that it’ll arrive this year, citing “technical difficulties” for the lengthy gap between it and her 2018 debut, ‘Invasion Of Privacy’.

The rapper’s debut album ‘Good News’ has gone gold since it was released in November last year.

BTS and Megan Thee Stallion to give ‘Butter’ remix its live debut at 2021 AMAs

BTS could take home three trophies from the event, including Favourite Pop Song for ‘Butter’, while Megan is also up for a trio of gongs.

More artists have also been confirmed to perform at the awards show including Olivia Rodrigo, who leads the nominations with seven nods across all categories.

Last month, BTS shared footage of their New York meeting with the Houston rapper, which took place while the group were in the city to appear at the United Nationals General Assembly. In the video, Megan talked about working with the Korean stars again, saying: “Whenever we do another song, I feel like we gotta do it big. We gotta do a video, and it’s gonna be happening.”

She also shared her reaction to being asked to do the collaboration. “I was like, ‘I wanna do a song with BTS’, and then when it came up I was like, ‘They know me?’” she said. “I was so happy.”

Tory Lanez won’t be offered plea deal in Megan Thee Stallion case

Rolling Stone reports that Deputy District Attorney Kath Ta told the court she has planned for around 90 minutes of testimony at next month’s hearing.

Lanez – whose real name is Daystar Peterson – is facing two felony charges of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle, plus the charge of “personally inflicted great bodily injury”. If he is convicted, he could spend up to 22 years and eight months in prison.

Peterson plead not guilty to the charges in November 2020 and, in January 2021, sought the right to speak out about the case after a judge ordered him to stay silent.

Holley previously told Rolling Stone that “meaningful discussions” to strike a deal with prosecutors did not change her client’s not guilty plea. “As in every case, the lawyers for the parties discuss the possibility of resolving the case,” she said. “This case is no different. That said, our position as to what did and did not happen in this matter remains unchanged, and Mr. Peterson’s plea of not guilty stands.”

Lanez’s bail was originally set at $190,000 (£139k), but was raised to $250,000 (£183k) after it was ruled that the rapper had violated Megan’s protective order against him by appearing onstage during DaBaby’s set at Rolling Loud. Megan was also performing at the festival.

Meanwhile, Lanez announced last month that he will release a “1980s album” called ‘Alone At Prom’ next month. The record is expected to arrive on December 1.

Megan Thee Stallion opens up about facing men’s expectations in Julie Adenuga interview

Megan also described how her views on men have changed after gaining fame and success as an artist. “I’m starting to see how much more ignorant men are than I thought,” she shared with Adenuga.

“When you’re a woman who’s not a threat, men don’t really bother you,” she continued. “And then as you grow into your own and as you become somebody who doesn’t need a man or somebody who is so independent… men like that damsel in distress type of role and that’s not me.”

Megan felt that that’s “what kind of gets under a lot of men’s skin,” adding that she makes “a lot of them uncomfortable and I feel like that’s my job.”

“I’m not a normal woman, I’m not a normal person, and if my un-normalness offends you, well, I’m obviously doing something right and, baby, look the other way,” she asserted.

Megan is currently in the UK for a series of performances, beginning last night (September 10) in Manchester. She is also slated to perform at Wireless Festival 2021 tomorrow at London’s Crystal Palace Park.

On festival crowds, Adenuga pointed out the ethnic differences between US and UK audiences, asking Megan if she is ready for that.

“I would hope they know better than to say the N-word. But honestly, when I’m performing to these huge crowds, it’s probably like the first two rows of Hotties that I’m looking at,” she said.

“I’m not trying to look out into the crowd. But the ones that make it to the front, they be the most lit. It’s often like I’m performing to them the whole time, because they are singing word for word, pointing fingers, twerking. I’m like, ‘Yes, these are my people.’”

Last night, Drake made a surprise appearance at Wireless Festival, performing cuts off ‘Certified Lover Boy’ during Future‘s set.

A live audience is set to be in attendance this year, while the awards show will feature “performances from some of music’s biggest stars and celebrate the return of live entertainment”.

Megan Thee Stallion vs homophobia in hip-hop: “Representation is important”

“It is about time,” she said. “Representation is important, and it is really crucial for us all to have compassion and acceptance of every human.”

Megan’s comments come after she was accused of being homophobic back in 2019 after Twitter users discovered an old tweet in which the ‘Hot Girl Summer’ rapper used a gay slur against someone.

“This lil f****t just pissed me off,” she tweeted during her late teens.

Addressing the controversy in 2018 and 2019, Megan said she apologised for her language and insisted the post did not represent her current views.

Earlier this week, 11 organisations in HIV/AIDS prevention, education and treatment penned an open letter to DaBaby requesting a private meeting to address his controversial comments.

Organisations such as GLAAD, Black AIDS Institute, Prevention Access Campaign, and more, as well as leading academics, delivered the address after the rapper (real name Jonathan Lyndale Kirk) issued an apology for his homophobic rant at Miami’s Rolling Loud Festival last month.

During his performance, the rapper encouraged the crowd to put their mobile phone flashlights in the air if they “didn’t show up today with HIV/AIDS or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that will make you die in two to three weeks”.

Elsewhere, he said: “Fellas, if you ain’t sucking dick in the parking lot, put your cellphone light up.”

Apologising for his comments on Monday (Aug 2), DaBaby said: “I want to apologise to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made.

“Again, I apologise for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important.

“I appreciate the many people who came to me with kindness, who reached out to me privately to offer wisdom, education, and resources. That’s what I needed and it was received.”

Meanwhile, a new report has found that Dua Lipa‘s ‘Levitating’ featuring DaBaby is getting less airplay following the latter’s recent homophobic comments.

Among the pages she shared were others who have delivered ASL interpretations of tracks by Megan, Cardi and other artists, including dancer and ASL interpreters Raven Sutton and J-Tay.

Sutton has also gone viral for her own take on ‘WAP’, with Cardi herself retweeting the clip in summer 2020.

Another ASL creator went viral last August for taking on the Cardi and Megan hit. Libbey Ketterer’s version on YouTube channel ‘The Daily Sign’ has amassed almost 3million views in the time since.

As well as the guest spot from Cardi, Megan’s Lollapalooza set also featured The Grammy-winning ‘Savage (Remix)’, new track ‘Thot Shit’ and others – see footage, reaction and photos from the show here.

Elsewhere at the festival, Machine Gun Kelly surprised fans with a last-minute secret set, while Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst debuted his dramatic new look in public for the first time and closed their set by debuting new song ‘Dad Vibes’ over the PA system.

Meanwhile, Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell has said that the festival “did the right thing by returning in 2021, despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Yesterday, Stallion teased her return with a futuristic, sci-fi indebted teaser video.

In the video, which was shared on the rapper’s social media accounts, Megan is seen hooked up to breathing apparatus in a futuristic pod. At first, we see her in a newspaper print outfit, similar to the design of ‘Good News’’s sleeve.

Later, she appears in a white bodysuit with cut out sides, hinting at the start of a new era. In between, a screen shows her body, mental health, confidence, bars, knees, and Tina Snow levels recovering until they hit 100 per cent.

In April, Megan said she would be taking a hiatus from music, sharing imagery similar to that in the new teaser to make the announcement. “Megan Thee Stallion is recharging!” one post read. “Due to the demands of the Hot Girl lifestyle <Meg> has now entered a period of regeneration to prepare for what’s next.” At the end of the new video, the rapper opens her eyes, suggesting her break is now over.

Meanwhile, last month the star announced a new online reality show called Off Thee Leash With Megan Thee Stallion. The unscripted project is part of the expanded Snapchat Originals series from Snap Inc.

Megan will also perform at this year’s Wireless Festival, which will take place in London in September. She will be joined on the bill by headliners Future, Skepta and Migos, as well as the likes of Meek Mill and AJ Tracey.

Just last week, the rapper released a new music video for her track ‘Movie’ featuring Lil Durk, taken from her latest album ‘Good News’.

Released on Friday (April 16), the clip is set in what appears to be a strip club, featuring some impressive pole moves from various dancers, as well as Megan herself.

In a four-star review of ‘Good News’, NME‘s Kyann-Sian Williams said of the album: “This debut finds Megan Thee Stallion determined to retain her freewheeling positivity in a difficult year.”

Megan Thee Stallion joins Bankroll Freddie on new track ‘Pop It’

“If I’m not the hottest who is?” she adds later. “She got a booty fetish trying to steal my shit/ Ms to the lawyer just to handle my biz.”

The track features on Bankroll Freddie’s new album ‘Big Bank’, which was also released today. Other guest rappers included on the record include Young Dolph, 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane and more.

Meanwhile, earlier this week Megan donated $50,000 (£36,300) in the memory of the victims of last month’s Atlanta spa shootings.

In an Instagram post, the rapper said she was “heartbroken” by the attacks, which killed eight people including six women of Asian descent. She added that the shootings were “a senseless, violent attack against Asian Americans”.

“We stand in solidarity with all Asian Americans in saying that enough is enough,” she added. The star’s donation was made in collaboration with clothing brand Fashion Nova and journalist May Lee and was given to the Atlanta branch of the non-profit group Asian Americans Advancing Justice.

The organisation is a legal advocacy group that is “dedicated to protecting the civil rights of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (AANHPI) in Georgia and the Southeast [of the United States].”

Dave, Megan Thee Stallion and Disclosure lead line-up for Parklife Festival 2021

Skepta, Jamie xx, AJ Tracey, Four Tet, Little Simz, Celeste and Pa Salieu are among the other UK names that ticketholders can expect to see at Heaton Park.

Fans who have registered for the event will be able to access a pre-sale here from 10am tomorrow (March 24).

Last month Parklife co-founder Sacha Lord told NME that the ongoing success of the UK’s vaccination programme has given him hope that the event will take place later this year without social distancing regulations.

“The vaccination roll-out has been incredible and hats off to all our scientists and NHS volunteers,” he said.

“For once, we can say that we have got something that’s world-beating. It’s phenomenal and we’ve got leading scientists saying they’re confident that everyone will have had their second vaccine by July.”

Lord also told NME that full-capacity would be key to the event’s success – days before the government unveiled plans to scrap all social distancing measures by the end of June.

“We pushed back Parklife to September and we’re confident it will go ahead. We’ve got New Order on the night before and we’re gearing up for success with an 80,000 capacity,” he said.

“We’re not considering operating with social distancing – I personally don’t like these socially distanced events. I think to go to a proper gig or a proper rave you need to be shoulder-to-shoulder in a hot sweaty environment. You cannot create that atmosphere at a socially distanced event.”

Other festivals taking place this summer include Wireless, Latitude and Reading & Leeds.

The rapper went on to congratulate her “Queen Bee Soul Sister”, writing: “We came up together and as hard as I saw you work I always knew there was something special about you.

“You worked so hard to get to where you are and I knew that one day everything that you accomplished would be rewarded. You deserve every bit of recognition that you receive and thank you for inspiring all women to be independent and strong. You are EVERYTHING.”

The Grammys 2021 was originally scheduled to be held at the end of January, but was postponed at the start of the year due to the surge in coronavirus cases in LA.

The ceremony is traditionally held at the Staples Center. Interim Recording Academy chief Harvey Mason Jr. said earlier this year the 2021 ceremony would instead be held “in and around Downtown Los Angeles”.

Meanwhile, BTS have also been added to the lineup for Music On A Mission, a virtual concert and fundraiser by the Grammys’ MusiCares Foundation. The event will take place this Friday (March 12) and will also feature performances from Haim, H.E.R., Jhene Aiko and John Legend.

Megan Thee Stallion celebrates birthday with new track ‘Southside Forever Freestyle’

In the song’s video, Megan pays homage to her hometown by sporting a Houston Rockets baseball cap and matching bikini as she raps into a hanging microphone, while Juicy J operates a pair of CDJs behind her.

Watch the video for ‘Southside Forever Freestyle’ below:

Last month, Megan dropped a new dance video for ‘Body’, directed by ‘WAP’ video director Colin Tilley.

The track is one of the stand-outs on the Houston rapper’s debut studio album ‘Good News’, which was released back in November.

The original video for ‘Body’ was released to accompany the arrival of ‘Good News’ on November 20, and Megan has followed those visuals up with a new clip which sees her reuniting with Tilley.

Megan recently appeared in the video for Ariana Grande’s ‘34+35’ remix, which she features on alongside Doja Cat.

The trio had been teasing the music video’s release on social media earlier this month, sharing behind-the-scenes selfies to their respective accounts.

Meanwhile, Megan Thee Stallion competed in a live Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate match last week.

The match was the ‘WAP’ rapper’s second collaboration with the Mortal Kombat franchise. As a longtime fan of the series, Megan The Stallion cosplayed as her favourite character Mileena for a Mortal Kombat 11 ad in November, ahead of the Kombat Pack 2 release.

The original video for ‘Body’, meanwhile, featured cameos from the likes of Taraji P. Henson, Jordan Woods, Blac Chyna and more.

The song has also spurred on a viral challenge on TikTok in the form of the #BodyOdyChallenge. So far, it has seen more than 1.7million videos created with the hashtag.

Megan recently appeared on a new remix of Ariana Grande’s ‘34+35’ alongside Doja Cat, which was released earlier this month. The rapper hinted that she was one of two guests on the new version of the track ahead of its release, commenting with a series of eye emojis underneath a teaser posted by Grande.

Meanwhile, the ‘Good News’ star’s old audition tape for Love & Hip Hop was recently released by VH1. While the network ultimately decided not to include Megan on the show, the rapper can be seen in the video seemingly predicting her own rise to fame.

Ariana Grande announces ‘34+35’ remix with Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion

Now, the singer has revealed the mystery women are Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion. She shared an illustration of the trio on her Twitter page earlier today, captioning it: “tonight @dojacat @theestallion @arianagrande”. See the tweets below.

https://t.co/ubF40jXQqC pic.twitter.com/MLIbPggNJG

tonight 🤍 @dojacat @theestallion https://t.co/ubF40jXQqC pic.twitter.com/KFvErtw1ou

— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) January 14, 2021

Doja previously hinted that she had teamed up with Grande and Megan. On her own Twitter account earlier this month (January 5), she drew her followers’ attention to the then-eight people she was following.

“Following them for a reeeeaaaaasssoooonnn 😉 Guess why,” she wrote. The list included Grande and Megan, as well as French Montana, Young Thug, The Weeknd, SZA, A$AP Ferg and Saweetie.

The original version of ’34+35’ featured on Grande’s latest album ‘Positions’. In a three-star review of the record, NME said of the track: “On the raunchily titled ’34+35′ (you do the maths), she begins: “If I put it quite plainly / Just give me them babies”. In case that demand was too understated, she later asks: “Can you stay up all night? / Fuck me ’til the daylight”.

A video was released for the single in November, which saw the pop star play both a scientist and an android that she brought to life.

Doja Cat teases collaborations with Megan Thee Stallion, Ariana Grande, SZA and more

If that reason is because she’s collaborated with them, then it looks as if Doja Cat has recruited French Montana, Megan Thee Stallion, A$AP Ferg, Saweetie, The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Young Thug and SZA for her new music.

Following them for a reeeeaaaaasssoooonnn 😉 Guess why.

— PLANET HER (@DojaCat) January 5, 2021

Back in September, Doja Cat revealed that her new album is “all ready”.

She told Fat Joe during an Instagram Live on September 10 that she would have liked to have released the record then, but said: “You have to plan things accordingly and there’s a lot going on”.

Last week, Doja Cat, alongside Megan Thee Stallion, Miley Cyrus and more, performed as part of the line-up for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.

Meanwhile, Nas has addressed his now-infamous Doja Cat namedrop, explaining that the attention it received is symptomatic of the social media age.

In August the rapper released ‘Ultra Black‘, the lead single from his new album ‘King’s Disease‘, which contains the lyric: “We going Ultra Black/ Unapologetically Black/ The opposite of Doja Cat“. Fans were quick to hype up the line online despite Doja Cat saying she wouldn’t beef with the star because he is a hero of hers.

Nas said of the situation in an interview with NME: “Well, I’ve been away, so, of course, I mention someone’s name that’s popular and people are gonna talk about it. I hear people do it all the time but no one makes a big deal of it. Maybe it’s because I don’t put out records a lot, so they’re like, ‘Whoa!’”

He continued: “I don’t really know the world that these stars live in anymore. I’m rapping the same way I did when I was on the block, but now there’s a new world and what I say can take off with social media and I can’t do anything about it.”
