Megan Thee Stallion explains why men can’t handle ‘WAP’ lyrics
She sat down with UK GQ to talk about her record year - and talk about this "WAP".
With a critically acclaimed album and multiple Grammy Award nominations, it's safe to say that Megan Thee Stallion is having a "Savage" year.
While some may feel a little threatened, Megan explained in an interview with the UK's GQ why many men cannot handle the lyrics to “WAP”, their great collaboration with Cardi B, a song that has already been featured in various songs as the Publications are celebrated every year.

While "WAP" was an instant commercial hit when it was released in early August, it received a fair amount of backlash from conservatives who criticized the song's sex-positive lyrics.
When asked why she believes that certain men and some women are threatened by women who have sex and their bodies, Megan provided interesting insight into all of these backlashes.
"Some people just don't know what to do when a woman is in control and taking responsibility for their own bodies," she said. “I feel like men have felt like they have sex for a long time, and now women are saying, 'Hey, this is for me. I want pleasure. So I want it or I don't want it, "it fucks men up."
When she specifically spoke of “WAP”, she said: “Is it just coming from a place of fear and uncertainty, for example, why should someone be crazy about my WAP? It belongs to me. "

When asked about her most unexpected moment in 2020, the rapper told GQ, "I would say the biggest surprise was getting four Grammy nominations, especially since I was told live while reading nominations. I really didn't have any I knew it was coming. Damn it, your girl's not just once but four Grammy nominations! It really surprised me and I'm so grateful for the recognition. "
In addition to her nomination as best new artist, Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage" was named record of the year, best rap performance and best rap song at the Grammy Awards 2021.
