Our favorite best friend duo is back for another season of Peace Of Mind with Taraji. For the first episode of the season, Taraji P. Henson and BFF Tracie Jade sat down with the queen of hot girl sh** to talk about everything from relationships to mental health. Here's what Megan Thee Stallion had to say.
First off, Megan and her boo, rapper Pardison Fontaine, are going strong (not that we had any doubt about that). The Body performer opened up about their relationship dynamic and how much joy he brings her. "My boyfriend does make me very happy. He definitely takes care of me emotionally," Thee Stallion said. "He makes my brain feel good. He makes my heart feel good."
Having a boyfriend who makes her heart and brain "feel good" is something new for Megan, who's more used to relying on the physical connection rather than emotional and mental. "That's a big thing for me because I used to be so into the physical, right," she explained. "But he moves me, he inspires me, and we just feel like a real team... He feels like a partner."
Later in the Facebook Watch series, the Grammy-winning artist got real about the stress fame has brought into her life and how she deals with it. "I've always been that girl, but when I was Megan, I wasn't as criticized and under such a magnifying glass as I am now," Megan said.
"I'm such a friendly person," she continued. "[But] I had to dial it back a little bit because my mama always used to tell me, 'Girl, everybody ain't your friend.' And I didn't understand what that meant until I started living this life. Because I'm thinking everybody is gonna be like how my family is. 'Cause I'm an only child, so I only knew people being nice to me, and I only knew people having good intentions."
The rapper's mom, Holly Thomas, passed away in 2019. But Megan still carries her advice everywhere she goes. "When I'm feeling down, I'm like, 'Okay, girl, what would your mama tell you right now?'" she shared. "If I was sad, I would go to my mama, and I would be like, 'Mama, he hurt my feelings, what do I do?' She'd be like, 'Girl, eff that.' So I always have to keep her words in the back of my head to keep me going."
That's real hot girl energy. You can catch more of this kind of content on the Peace of Mind Facebook page.
