Megan Thee Stallion Honored with Key to Houston and Official Holiday
Megan Thee Stallion was honored with a key to Houston and an official holiday during a ceremony hosted by Mayor Sylvester Turner in the rapper's home city Houston, Texas on Sunday
According to People,
She was honored Sunday with the key to her native Houston, Texas by several City Council members and Mayor Sylvester Turner, who also announced May 2 will be considered "Megan Thee Stallion Day" in the city going forward.
Mayor Sylvester Turner had this to say during the event,
“Megan Thee Stallion has an extraordinary entertainment career, but we wanted to honor her for what she does offstage to lift people's lives in underserved communities," “She assisted people after the 2021 winter storm, during the pandemic, and helped those struggling with homelessness.” “I look forward to watching her grow as an artist and humanitarian."
Megan The Stallion had this to say during her acceptance speech paying tribute to her late mother and grandmother,
"I really can't believe I got my own key to my own city.” “Both of these women helped me grow into the woman that I am today. I don't know what kind of lady I would be if Granny didn't raise me to be so kind and so giving,"
"You could walk by these ladies' house and they givin' out dollars, candy — whatever they've got, they're givin' it out the door. And I always felt like I wanted to be just like that. I wanted to be nice like them," "They made me feel so beautiful and so loved, and they made everybody they met feel just like that. So I was like, 'When I grow up, I wanna be just like them.'"
