A Houston hottie is ticking off another amazing accomplishment. Megan Thee Resilient is making her way back onto the scene after that shooting and making major moves. The hot girl who’s releasing her single “Wap” with Cardi B this Friday can add another title to her resume; GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR REVLON.
Revlon announced today that the rapper’s been named the newest Global Brand Ambassador joining the pantheon of famous ambassadors of past and present including Gal Gadot, Ashley Graham, Sofia Carson, Jessica Jung, Adwoa Aboah and Eniola Abioro.
Naturally, Meg couldn’t be happier.
“I’ve always set the bar high for myself with everything I do, but to now be a brand ambassador for Revlon, it feels like a new level,” said Megan. “To me, the Revlon brand stands for both beauty and female strength and I’m excited to help define what that means to a new generation of women.”
Similarly, Revlon’s Global Brand President Sylvia Galfo said she’s ecstatic to have the hot girl on board.
“Megan is a remarkable talent and we know she’s only going to continue to rise to new heights,” said Galfo. “When we first approached her about a partnership nearly a year ago, we were drawn to her confidence and fierce ambition as much as her power to hold nothing back. She loves to express herself with makeup and is a constant inspiration to her fans on living boldly. It’s that authenticity and unapologetic spirit that we admire, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the Revlon family.”
For her official campaign photo, Megan did her own makeup using all Revlon including the Revlon ColorStay Looks Book Eye Shadow Palettes and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick.
This girl’s truly on fire and it’s nice to see her shine, no matter the circumstances.
Not only is Meg celebrating her new deal with Revlon, but she’s also covering VARIETY’s annual Power of Young Hollywood issue and speaking on a number of things including her recovery, her friendship with Beyoncé, and her family.
Hit the flip.
Meg’s got the power.
Hot Girl Meg is looking gorgeous for VARIETY in stylish photos shot by Orin Fleurimont. Inside the mag’s annual issue she dished on her recovery, “talking all the time” to King Bey, and balancing music and getting her degree.
She also got some love from her “Hot Girl Summer” homegirl Nicki Minaj who praised her for her aptitude.
Nicki Minaj on her friend, Megan Thee Stallion:
“One of my favorite things about Meg is her desire to further her education. It’s so important for women to feel inspired to achieve goals outside of social media, where the focus is usually placed on their bodies or who they’re dating at the time. Women are more than just baby mamas, and we can continue to prove that by being goal oriented, bettering ourselves and being independent. Megan is the perfect example that we can have fun and be smart at the same time.”

On how she’s doing after posting to Instagram that she had been “shot in both of my feet and had to get surgery to get the bullets taken out”:
“I’m not the type of person who can stay down for a long time. I don’t like to be sad or keep myself in a dark place, because I know it could be the worst thing happening, but the pain and the bad things don’t last for long.”
On her friendship with Beyoncé, who she met at the queen and Jay-Z’s New Year’s Eve party:
“In the first five minutes of the conversation, I felt like I’ve been knowing her all my life. She treated me like family, and now I feel like I am family. We talk all the time.”
“The only thing I don’t like about having all eyes on you at all times is not all eyes are good eyes. I still want to be able to walk into Walmart and buy dog food. I still want to party in the club and nobody’s recording me and no super-judgey internet police are going, ‘Shame!’ But all that comes with it, and you have to be prepared for people to be in your business, 24/7.”
On pursuing her degree while also focusing on her music:
“I was late for an awards show because I had to finish a final. I remembered halfway through getting dressed for the event, so I’m finishing the final while my hairstylist is curling my hair and people are calling like, ‘Where is Megan?’ I got there and went straight onstage.”
On being raised by strong women:
“It was me, my great-grandmother, my grandmother and my mom,” she says. (Her father, Joseph Pete Jr., who she’s described as a “full-time hustler,” was in prison on weapons charges for the first eight years of her life.) “They were all polite Southern women, but so sassy, smart and strong: ‘You don’t need a man to do anything for you,’” she recalls them saying. And although only her grandmother remains — her father died when she was 15; in March 2019 she lost both her mother (due to a brain tumor) and her great-grandmother — she says, “Because they put that in me, nobody can tell me the opposite: ‘My mom told me I was great, so that must mean I’m great!’”
On growing up watching her mom, who moonlit as a rapper named Holl-Wood, write music:
“I grew up watching her writing [raps] and going with her to the studio. I started writing, and I would sneak her CDs with [instrumental versions of hip-hop hits] and rap over them.”
On her relationship with her dad after his release from prison:
“I thought my dad was the coolest man on the planet. He was so clean and so gangsta. He would pick me up from school, and I remember riding around with my dad feelin’ cool with that song [Three Six Mafia’s 2005 hit ‘Poppin’ My Collar’] playing.”
This year, VARIETY’s annual Power of Young Hollywood party will be replaced by a one-hour program that will premiere on Facebook TONIGHT Thursday, Aug. 6 at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET.
Featured in the special are musical performances by Chloe x Halle and Gabby Barrett alongside roundtable discussions, fan Q&As, and exclusive videos from the issue.
Benito Skinner will host with special appearances by Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood cover stars Shira Haas, Maluma, and Hot Girl Meg herself.
