Megan Thee Stallion gets candid about her mental health and offers insight into her healing journey.

In a new interview with L'Officiel’s Summer 2024 entertainment issue, Stallion said, “I feel like I'm definitely on my way to a better place.”

The rapper gave update about her mental health after coping with the loss of her mother, Holly Thomas, and grandmother in 2019, as well as criticism from being shot by rapper Tory Lanez in 2020, who was sentenced to 10 years in prison last August for the incident.

Reflecting on her life, Stallion stated, “I know I'm not in a place I was in before. I don't have it down pat.”

However, the rapper felt confident now that she’s better equipped to deal with life’s obstacles as they come.

“I'm not saying, Oh my gosh, I'm in just the perfect place. Everything is great,” mentioned the 28-year-old.

The Cobra crooner added. “I do still have my days where I'm like, ‘Man, I wonder why I feel like this?’ But at least now I have the resources to change the thought process.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Stallion addressed her anxiety, explaining how she was pressurised to be happy for others despite “falling into a depression”.

“When you are going through a depression or when you are going through sadness…you don't want to put that on other people,” spilled the musician.

Stallion told the outlet, “You don't want to be the dark cloud of your friend group. You don't want to be a burden.”

“Everybody puts on a face or a costume or a façade,” she continued.

Stallion mentioned, “I was one of those people who definitely was always like, ‘I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine. I'm strong, I'm tough. I got this; I can do this.’”

“But then it got to a point where I really couldn't hide it anymore — at least in my personal life — and I was just like, ‘Forget this. I'm sad. What are we going to do about this?’” shared the rapper.

Meanwhile, Stallion further said she won’t go back to her “old self”.

“The way that I love myself is so different from the way that I did love myself… I am not doing things to make other people happy. I'm just all about Megan right now, and I love it. I hope that I can continue this way,” she added.
