After a year of practically no music festivals thanks to the pandemic, Lollapalooza came back in a big way. And Megan Thee Stallion absolutely brought the house down during her one-hour set on Saturday, July 31st.
The Thot S**t rapper, who had taken a personal hiatus earlier in the summer, came back at 100 miles an hour when she hit the T-Mobile stage at the Chicago music festival. Her set, which was slotted to run from 6:45-7:45 on Saturday evening, was one of the biggest highlights of the day, if not the whole festival. She was sandwiched between Young the Giant and Post Malone but brought a serious crowd of her own, which many believe made Lollapalooza history. According to Megan, over 180,000 "hotties" were in the crowd at her highly anticipated performance. "They said we had thee biggest crowd of @lollapalooza so far !!!" the Grammy-winning artist wrote in her caption.
The video that went along with it showed Meg doin' her thing on stage with a sea of Hotties out rapping along to Realer. She hit the T-Mobile stage in a classic Meg get-up, complete with a unitard made of repurposed band T-shirts and fishnet tights. The Instagram video racked up almost 3,000,000 likes views, but the comments weren't all love for the WAP rapper. There were some loyal Hotties who were disappointed in Megan for performing with such a large crowd with Covid cases still spreading around the United States. "I love you Meg, but this crowd is irresponsible during a global pandemic," one user wrote. With another adding, "also them hotties finna have hot fevers."
One thing's for sure, Meg definitely went down in Lolla history with this set. Stay tuned for more news from the biggest names in the game.
