When Megan Thee Stallion shared her song, ‘Anxiety’ from her recent album, Traumazine, she spoke about how she has suffered from anxiety with the lyrics, “I’m a bad bit*h, and I got bad anxiety.” While this did start a conversation around mental health, the rapper went a step further and took it upon herself to release a website that provides mental health services for anyone who wants it.
Megan @theestallion created a website that compiles a list of diverse mental health resources and is sending it out to her fans and followers. Real hot girl shit.https://t.co/dUAnYKW0mbpic.twitter.com/b8sSO9oiba— Shea Jordan Smith (@shea_jordan) September 25, 2022
The website, Bad Bit*hes Have Bad Days Too, is named after the lyrics from the song, ‘Anxiety’. It has a compilation of links to resources like finding therapists that specialise in helping a certain community like the LGBTQ+ or black community. You’ll also find links about free therapy, crisis hotlines, and more. The ‘Savage’ rapper took to Twitter to announce the launch, “ Hotties! You know how much mental wellness means to me, so I created a hub with resources that can help when you might need a hand. Head to https://www.badbitcheshavebaddaystoo.com now and check it out. Love y’all so much”.
Stallion has always been vocal about her struggle with mental health, especially after the 2019 incident when she was shot in the foot by rapper Tory Lanez, and losing her mother around the same time. In fact, during a 2021 interview with Taraji P. Henson for her Facebook Watch Series, Stallion shared, “I’ve lost both my parents. Now, I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, who do I talk to? What do I do?’” She then adds, “I just started learning that it’s OK to ask for help and it’s OK to want to go get therapy.”
Stallion is now preparing to perform and host Saturday Night Live on October 15, where she will be performing songs from her new album, Traumazine. But in the meantime, take a leaf out of Stallion’s book and ask for help when you need it, just like Stallion did.
